Frequently Asked Questions About The OUR HOMES Franchise Opportunity
I’m good at Sales. Why is this for me?
If you are good at sales, you understand the importance of networking and relationships. You probably even have a pre-existing network of relationships set up with business leaders in your region. Why not put this network to work for you?
Would I qualify?
YOU DO NOT NEED EDITING OR PUBLISHING EXPERIENCE. You just need to be a people person, and be good at sales. We take care of the complicated processes of creating the editorial, taking the dazzling interior photography, and completing all the graphic design and printing for you, so you can simply focus on growing your sales and growing your business!
Why OUR HOMES?
OUR HOMES is a premium gloss home and décor magazine focused on the local communities in which it is published. It is like owning a magazine that looks and feels like a premium “big name” national publication, but for your local community, with real, tangible, and affordable advertising solutions for the homes-related businesses in your local market. This makes it a first choice for local advertisers. It’s a magazine of “national” quality, but with regional advertising rates.
Our franchisees come from many differing career paths. Through our comprehensive training program, we teach them everything they need to know to be successful and happy publishers of the most premium magazine in their markets. Further in the process you will have the opportunity to chat with them to learn about their experiences and successes with OUR HOMES.
Like all businesses, you need invest in them to get them rolling. It’s no different with OUR HOMES, except that we outline the costs for you. Payment plans are available if you are the right fit, but lack the financial capital to get started. Or we can refer you to a financial institution for the financing you need to get started.
Why a franchise?
We have established a proven operating model which results in the most premium magazine in a franchise region. Our current franchisees have proven that this model works. Franchises enjoy many benefits over newly started independent businesses. Some of these advantages include a recognizable and protected brand name, professional assistance as you complete a market analysis, full and comprehensive training for you and your employees, start-up and ongoing support, head office support and assistance in marketing, sales and accounting systems, and all the templates you need for contracts, emails, letters etc. We also supply full publication design and output. So, if you were to start this up your own, you would likely be looking at much higher costs to launch, and then you’d still be on your own without professional guidance and assistance and a cheerleading team with a vested interest in you, coaching you towards success, and providing all the back-end support.
Because of the popularity and success of our model, we are filling franchise territories rapidly. Do not delay. If you posses great sales skills and have a positive attitude, you too can enjoy the wonderful benefits of owning a premium home and décor magazine in your community.
