Building On Success – Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo Gears Up For 2014 one of these expos and we've been doing it every year for 15 years.”

Fiona Stacey Exhibition Manager New show organiser Specialised Events is gearing up for a busy and exciting year in 2014, building on the fresh new look and feel of its first three Franchising & Business Opportunities Expos this year. According to Exhibition Manager Fiona Stacey, the three shows in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne reported excellent numbers this year, with the recent Melbourne Expo in particular exceeding all expectations – more than 4000 people streamed through the doors over the show’s three days. “We had three really good shows but Melbourne really stood out,” says Exhibition Manager Fiona Stacey. “It just had a fabulous feel, a great number of exhibitors and visitors, and exciting show features.” The show’s 80 exhibitors agreed, with many saying it was their best show yet. “The first day was fantastic, I looked at the figures and we did three times what we did the same day last year,” says John Gill from Cleantastic. “I would say it's the best Friday we've had at

“Yes it was a very good day (on Friday), we were quite surprised at the numbers that came through,” agrees Lilian Tartaglia from McDonald’s. “We saw some really strong candidates so it's a great start.” Richard Reid, from Salts of the Earth, said he thought all the shows reflected well on the new organising company. “They seemed to be doing a lot more and better advertising and marketing. We are very happy, particularly with the quality of people applying for franchises.”

of the Darling Harbour venue, the Sydney show will be held at the Royal Hall of Industries at Moore Park in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. “This venue is only 10 minutes from the CBD with easy access by car or public transport, and cheap or free parking.” she says. “It’s also convenient for exhibitors, with level loading dock access directly onto the show floor and excellent surrounding facilities.” Stacey adds that the most popular features of the 2013 shows will remain, such as the free seminar program and the Franchising Advice Centre. “Through the year we were paying attention to feedback

from exhibitors and made improvements with each show,” she says. “Now we are working hard to ensure the 2014 series of Franchising & Business Opportunities Expos is even bigger and more exciting, so make sure you get in early to reserve your stand, as it looks like each one will be a sell-out!” For information about participating in the 2014 Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo contact Fiona Stacey on (03) 9999 5464 or email

Tim Collett, Specialised Events’ Managing Director, says there was a lot Next year’s dates are: of attention paid to solid marketing and Sydney 28-30 March at Royal Hall of Industries, Moore Park promotions for the Brisbane 19-20 July at Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre three shows. Melbourne 22-24 August at Melbourne Exhibition Centre “For the Melbourne one we decided to risk putting the bulk of our Franchise marketing dollars into television,” he explains. “This strategy really paid off, as demonstrated by the numbers – and most importantly the quality – of visitors to the Melbourne show. We’ll be looking to use TV extensively again for all three shows in 2014.” Fiona Stacey says the Sydney Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo will be held earlier than this year, from 2830 March 2014.

Buy a Business & Invest In Your Future By William de Ora

Buying a business offers you the potential to create, and control your future. You can make your own decisions, there’s no one to tell you what to do, and you get to reap the benefits. This is the joy of being your own boss. I’m sure you’re aware however that unless you take charge, your business will. Too many people end up being in a selfmade prison rather than reaping the freedom and rewards. And, while you may think that you’ve escaped a boss, there’s no tougher boss than a business that relentlessly demands your attention 24/7.

So how do you avoid ending up being ‘employed’ by your business? You must be the number one priority of the business. From the in-depth research gathered when writing The Invisible Entrepreneur: How To Grow Your Business By Taking 3 Months Off!, I saw too many entrepreneurs being the last in line to reap any rewards from their business. If you are investing in a business, then you need to make sure that it’s a wise investment, and that it does give you a return on your investment. As a business owner keep in perspective that having a business isn't an end in itself, but the means to an end. Over the past twenty-five years I have seen too many business owners forget that a business is a moneymaking machine. Now before you jump to any conclusions, and think that I’m saying that money is everything, it’s not. I know that 6 Australian Business For Sale ®

Be clear about your shortterm and long-term objectives Buying a business can often be an emotional decision. It feels like it’s the right thing to do, and if you just get started, you’ll figure out the rest. However, this can be costly, and may not lead you to your destination. So before you buy a business, it’s important to map out ‘why’ you are going into business, and what you really want to get out of the business. You must think in terms of the short-term as well as the long term. It’s much easier to map out your game plan when you know what game you’re playing. When reviewing the business’ financials, look at the previous turnover and historic costs, but also look at the scalability, and whether this business could operate without you. If you can't see the potential for this to happen, you may well be staring at a ‘vampire business’ that’s going to bleed you dry—delivering minimum returns for maximum input in terms of your time, effort, and resources.

Begin with the end in mind How might you set up your first

business, if you knew that it wasn’t going to be the only business you’ll ever have? In The Invisible Entrepreneur the focus is on you not being in your business, and having to run it day-to-day. It’s about you taking on the role as the investor of the business. And, if there’s one thing that I would encourage you to do is to begin thinking like the investor from day one. It might sound like an impossible role to play in the beginning, however it will pay you dividends if you can master operating like this. It will give you enormous freedom to direct two game plans simultaneously. Game Plan 1 is your business. Game Plan 2 is an investment portfolio, funded by your business. Another way of saying this is, don’t put all your eggs in one basket. If you’re interested in creating a future that gives you the best of both worlds—your business and your investment portfolio,

then please call me to discuss how this can be achieved. William de Ora is the best selling author of three business books.

making a difference is important. I also understand that you get to be creative, and you get to set the standards that align with your core values. However, there’s another benefit that you may not have thought about which is your business needs to give you sufficient funds to be able to invest in other incomegenerating vehicles. For instance, imagine using your business to generate enough revenue, so that you can then invest in ‘bricks and mortar’ and build a property portfolio that will give you a passive, and ongoing income. Would you agree that this could provide you with real freedom, and the opportunity to choose what you do, or don’t do in your business?

An Australian First - Make Money Working Just Days A Month! What is it?

Now You Can Share The Revenue From These Amazing Coin-Operated Air Machines 24/7 With Your Service Station Operator And Favourite Charity. This Is The Ultimate Win/Win/Win!

AIR-serv Australia Pty Ltd Coin-Operated machines are PLC digitally operated, illuminate at night and have a stainless steel cabinet with base requirements of 700 mm x 660 mm, retractable Real AIR Hose and a built-in two horsepower oil less AIR compressor, with electrical requirements of 10 amp 240 volts. They can be installed at service stations, car washes, caravan parks and other locations.

The average Coin Operated AIR machine has an expected monthly income between $150 and $700 depending upon the location. You identify, locate and install 10 x AIR machines and you are making between $1,500 and $7,000 a month. Additional 20 machines purchased over 2 years with follow up packs at wholesale prices to increase your monthly income.

the roughest areas there has been the least number of vandalism problems. How do they work? The machines are easy to use and take $1 and $2 coins for a timed period of $1 x 4 minutes and $2 x 8 minutes. Note: Air pressure can be checked without installing coins. The machines make no demands on the forecourt staff whatsoever. Nothing to check, no need to bring in the hoses and gauge at night and nothing to count.

What about vandalism? Each machine is built to extremely rugged standards to withstand the rigours of life on the forecourt and is bolted to a concrete base facility. They are highly vandal resistant with a separate lockable cash vault which is bolted to the floor. In fact, it has been found that in

Successfully launched in WA (50 machines installed) 6 Eastern State Contracts are now available to astute business owners in each state and territory in Australia.

How safe is the Air machine? The machines are safer than the normal free airline. As the compressors are regulated to 80 PSI maximum and this pressure is reached rapidly from the zero through the output of the compressors and not by emptying of an AIR receiver.

Does the Air machine save on electricity costs? The AIR-serv unit consumes about a quarter of the electricity compared to the standard compressor set-up. It uses electricity only when activated and does not compress air to 150/200 PSI for storage in the receiver when the average motorist only requires AIR at 25/35 PSI, thus it is very energy-efficient. The installation of coin-operated AIR machines will result in considerable cost savings. It is estimated that the average Service Station cost of supplying free air facilities is between $250 and $1,000 per annum.

Customers Don’t Care How Much You Know… Until They Know How Much You Care By Bob Lyon Selling can be defined as everything that happens from the first contact with the prospective customer to the satisfactory delivery of the product or service. If your advertising is effective, it will attract prospective customers to your business. If you’re engaged in direct selling, where you telephone and make appointments and then go and see the customer personally you have to prospect for customers. Each part of the professional selling process must take place no matter how you meet the customer for the first time.

1. Prospecting The first rule of selling is to spend more time with better prospects. Your first job in the prospecting process is to separate “prospects” from “suspects.” Your goal in the initial stages of your first meeting is to determine whether the person is a genuine prospect or just a “tyre kicker.” For many people shopping around is a form of entertainment. They are polite and pleasant and they ask lots of questions, but they have no real intention of buying in the foreseeable future. In prospecting you must ask carefully planned questions to determine whether this person has a genuine need that your product or service can satisfy. These questions will differ depending upon what you sell and who you sell to. One of the best investments you’ll ever make is in books, CD`s and professional sales training programs that teach you how to become excellent at prospecting and finding new customers.

2. Establishing Rapport And Trust Customers today are pampered, spoiled and fickle. They will only buy from someone they like and who they feel likes them. “They don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” People decide emotionally and then justify logically. In the first few moments with a prospect, you must slow down and take the time to build a minimum level of trust and likeability with that person. You do this by asking friendly questions and listening closely to the answer. You establish rapport and trust by being genuinely interested in the other person, as a person, rather than just as a customer. 10 Australian Business For Sale ®

3. Identify Needs In this part of the sales process, you ask the prospect questions about what they’re currently doing, what they need at the moment, and what their plans are for the future. Whenever someone asks me for my advice about which of our programs they should buy, I always ask, “What sort of business are you doing now?” When somebody comes into your business, perhaps the worst question you can ask is “Can I help you?” This question will almost always generate the response “No thanks I’m just looking.” A better question might be “Is there anything specific I can help you with today?” You could also say, “Hi is this the first time you’ve been to our store?” Whichever way they answer you could continue by saying, “That’s great! We’ve got some really terrific specials this week; can I show them to you?” In medicine they say, “Prescription without examination and diagnosis is malpractice.” Most sales people commit “sale malpractice” every single day. They start talking to the customer about the product or service before they have taken time to do the examination or diagnosis.

4. The Presentation Once you’ve established rapport with the prospect and clearly identified what they want and what they’re looking for, you can then show how your product or service is the very best choice for them at this time. You use what is called “educational selling” instead of trying to persuade the prospect to buy your product or service, you teach them about the product, what it is made of , how it works and especially what it does for the customer. You teach the special benefits that owning this product offer your customer. You do not try and sell at all. Instead you focus on giving the prospect good information and let them evaluate that information without pressure.

5. Answering Objections There are no sales without questions or concerns. A good customer will want to know about what will happen if they buy what you’re selling. The customer may have questions or concerns about the price, competitive offerings, or the

suitability for them at this time. You must be prepared to answer these concerns openly and honestly.

6. Closing the Sale This is often the most stressful part of the sale for both the customer and sales person. However, it does not need to be difficult. It simply requires that you develop two or three simple ways of asking the customer to make a buying decision. • The Assumptive Close. After you presentation, you ask a question like “Do you like what I’ve shown you so far?” or “How do you like this?” If the customer says “It looks pretty good” or “It looks fine” you assume the sale and behave exactly as if the customer has said “Yes, I’ll take it.” You ask “Well then, would you like me to wrap this up for you?” or “If you have no further questions, how soon do you need this?” • The Invitational Close. You ask, “Do you have any other questions or concerns that I haven’t covered?” When the customer says, “No” you close the sale by saying “Well then, why don’t you give it a try?” If you’re selling services, you say “Why don’t you give us a try?” If you’re selling a tangible product you can ask, “Why don’t you take it?” or “Why not purchase it now?” In every case, once you’ve explained your product or service to the customer and explained how they can best use it, you should invite them to make a buying decision – “Why don’t you give it a try?” • The Alternative Close. Customers often find it easier to buy if you give then a choice instead of an ultimatum. For example, “Which of these do you prefer, the red one or the blue one?” or “Which do you like better, model 25 or model 30?” If you only have a single product, offer a choice between methods of payments. “How would you like to pay for this, cash or credit?” Or you could offer a different delivery, “Would you like to take this with you now, or should we deliver it to you tomorrow?” There are more than one hundred ways to close a sale however I believe you only need to know about seven closing techniques. Once you’ve learned and memorised these techniques, you have them in your head to use at the appropriate time. Continues on page 12

7. Getting Resales and referrals Immediately after making a sale you should ask. “Would you happen to know of anyone else who might be interested in getting what you’ve just purchased?” To get resales, you must be sure to follow up the sale with excellent customer service.

The Most Profitable Sales The reason that resales and referrals are so important is because they are the most profitable and easiest to make. A sale to a satisfied customer is ten times easier that advertising, selling and getting new customers. This means that it take one tenth of the time, cost, and energy to make a resale than it does to make a first time sale. All successful, profitable businesses are built on the second sale (and third, fourth, fifth etc.).

Perhaps the most important word in business is “credibility.” The higher your creditability the easier it is for someone to buy from you. And everything you do in your transaction with your customer either raises or lowers your credibility. Everything counts. When you get a referral from a satisfied customer, it will almost always be to a relative or friend or close business associate of your customer. The customer already has established a high level of credibility or trust with that person. When you call on a referral it is with the credibility that has already been established by your customer. As much as 95% of the sale has already been made.

key to a great sales person. The more professional you appear, the more your prospects will listen to what you have to say. People like dealing with experts in their field, with someone that really knows what they’re talking about and somebody who will look after their interests. They want good advice and information before they buy. They’re very wary of being caught by some clever sales person whose only interest is to make money. So make the choice, treat every sale like it really matters, build rapport and trust with your customers and provide excellent service and performance.

Consistent Customer Service Do this, and watch your sales multiply!

A referral from a satisfied customer is fifteen times easier to sell than a cold call or a new customer. This means it takes fifteen times the cost and energy to find a new customer through advertising, promotions and sales effort as it does to sell someone referred to you by a happy customer.

The third part of successful business development after marketing (lead generation) and selling (lead conversion) is customer service and satisfaction. Almost any company can attract customers for the first time. But it is your ability to keep the customer coming back and buying again that is the true measure of your effectiveness as a businessperson.

Credibility Is The Key To The Sale

Lifting The Franchisee Performance Ceiling By Jason Gehrke resources in the organisational details necessary to create outstanding business performers from the uninitiated.

Jason Gehrke In the main, franchisor founders are entrepreneurial types who see an opportunity to build a business in an underdeveloped niche. A typical characteristic of entrepreneurs is that their long-distance focus on realising potential is often matched by a lack of attention to detail in the short term. This short term lack of attention, if not addressed by other members of the entrepreneur’s team, can compromise the effectiveness of systems to train and support franchisees. In their rush to capitalise on a business opportunity ahead of competitors, new franchisors often fail to invest sufficient

Not surprisingly, many new franchisors find they have much greater support demands placed on them by new franchisees, than by experienced franchisors who have learned the hard way that extra resources invested into training reduces the reactive consumption of support resources later. Consequently, advice to “just follow the system” rings hollow in the ears of franchisees who perceive the system to be lacking, and whose growing knowledge of “the system” increases their concerns that it was underdeveloped from the outset. While “the system – that special blend of training, know how and marketing nous that creates a successful franchise – is intended to help launch a franchisee to hitherto unobtainable heights, “the system” could equally create a performance ceiling that limits the very heights to which a franchisee can soar. Let’s consider the example of a system


where a franchisee is required to manually complete complex and timeconsuming reports about business activities. Such work is laborious, and reduces the amount of customer-facing or business development time available to a franchisee. On the other hand, “the system” could be developed so that such reports are automated by linking to the business’ point of sale technology and require no additional effort on behalf of the franchisee to produce. Such an innovation will be self-apparent to franchisees often before it is selfapparent to a franchisor (or at least, before a franchisor acknowledges that it requires a further investment in the development of their system). Where franchisors can create improvements in their system which save franchisees time and resources, it follows that the time and resources saved can be reinvested by the franchisee to lift the performance of their business. To raise the overall performance level of franchisees, franchisors need first to examine their system to see if it has Continues next page

inefficiencies or other barriers that create a structurally-embedded performance ceiling. Of course not every franchisee will be equally affected by a structural performance ceiling due to each franchisee’s individual combination of skills, attributes and experience, but nonetheless, any kind of systemic performance ceiling will limit the overall performance of franchisees across a network. Then there is the performance ceiling that franchisees impose on themselves (rather than imposed on them by an inefficient system). The self-imposed performance ceiling is the result of the 3C’s: Confidence, Capacity and Complacency. A lack of confidence in their ability to run a business, or lack of confidence in specific aspects of the business’ operation can limit a franchisee’s potential. This may stem from concerns over their own competency to operate a business which should have been identified by the franchisor during the selection and induction process (and again highlights the importance of a highlyevolved franchise system).

d Me

an Auto

al anic

A lack of capacity where the franchisee cannot devote sufficient time to the proper conduct of their business, or at the other end of the scale, the franchisee has dedicated every available moment to the business and has worn themselves out in the process. While a lack of confidence and a lack of capacity are two of the reasons for a selfimposed performance ceiling, the third reason is the most confronting: complacency. Franchisees and independent small business owners who are comfortable with their current income and lifestyle become complacent and operate in cruise control, and no longer feel compelled to operate the business more aggressively. Franchisors can instigate strategies and tactics to help franchisees overcome confidence and capacity issues, but are more challenged to overcome franchisee complacency. Complacent franchisees are generally undemanding of their franchisors when things are going well, but if times get tough they are soon shaken from their complacency and often look to blame their franchisor for their declining fortunes. Complacent franchisees often don’t

appreciate how far off course their business might have drifted until it’s about to crash into an iceberg. Complacent franchisees are accustomed to a financial or lifestyle outcome from their business, but don’t fully understand the range of variable inputs that are required to produce these outputs. Complacent franchisees are quick to blame their franchisor if something goes awry in their business, and slow to respond to advice. Complacent franchisees don’t understand the dangers of complacency, or appreciate its contagiousness. Complacent franchisees often need a close encounter with an iceberg to shake them from their complacency, and sometimes by then it may be too late. There is no silver bullet to raising the franchisee performance ceiling. By ensuring the system is constantly improved, and that franchisee confidence and capacity can be addressed makes it easier for franchisors to identify limits in franchisee performance caused by complacency. And then the real challenge begins.

Entertainment/Vending Burleigh


Betty’s Photo Booth Company My business partner and I have spent the past 2 years building a solid reputation for our side business, Betty’s Photo Booths. Throughout this time we have sought the skills of graphic artists and marketing guru’s to help make Betty’s Booths the neat little business it is today. This is a complete business that is easy to manage and operate. The business includes a photo booth, signwritten vehicle, media and all current design templates for an easy transition into new ownership. An enthusiastic owner could see Betty’s

Booths reach its full potential in very little time. The photo booth industry is thriving and with the demand for booths on the rise we simply don’t have the time to keep up with the demand. The income potential far exceeds the running costs, and in the right hands the possibilities are endless. The demands of the business offer a great work/lifestyle balance allowing the owner to determine how busy or quiet they are. For more info please call, email or visit.

In fact, in NSW this has been the case since 1935, when the government enacted legislation designed to protect the public from unscrupulous operators. All funds paid to an agent, including any pre-paid advertising expenses, must be deposited in the agent’s trust account, and accounted for to his Principal. If the agent misappropriate funds, he can be prosecuted under the Property, Stock and Business Agents Act, and the aggrieved party can get restitution by claiming upon a compensation fund. However, the fund is ONLY available to you if you have used the services of a Licensed Agent.

vendors in particular) of thousands of dollars, which they have claimed for marketing and advertising expenses. Should you be approached by someone representing themselves as an agent, who wants you to list a business for sale, and who asks for prepaid advertising and marketing expenses, ask for their License Number. Then call the Department of Fair Trading to check if the number is genuine. To be absolutely certain, deal only with a member of the Real Estate Institute Business Agents’ Chapter. All members of the Institute are Licensed Agents, and are bound by a code of ethics. Call the Real Estate Institute in your state.

Brisbane/Toowoomba QLD


An easily run and successful business that leaves plenty of spare time to pursue a relaxed lifestyle in the fastest growing capital city in Australia.

The cleaning business has a large regular clientele with 82 sites in and around Brisbane & Toowoomba. Enviroclean operates with 19 contractors who are both reliable and trustworthy. The current owners, a husband and wife team, are not involved in the actual physical cleaning, they carry out the day to day office procedures and administration of the business. Good systems are in place and 6 hours / 4 days a week has proven to be more than adequate to run the business with a Quality Assurance Manager following up 5 days per week.

Enviroclean has very few outlays with all equipment and most cleaning products provided by the contractors.

Current turnover $800K plus per annum. This is not a difficult business to run and functions easily with minimal staff and little in the way of overheads. Current owners would provide 1 month’s training and instruction relating to the website and a quoting programme that shows how to acquire more work if required. Enviroclean has established a solid reputation over the past 13 years and with the comprehensive systems now in place could be developed into a successful franchise. The purchase price includes 2 promotional, signwritten Honda Jazz vehicles. Further information and financial details would be available upon completing confidentiality requirements.
