Are you our kind of Franchisee? I’d like to tell you our story. In 1992, as a keen and ambitious young lady I was working at a courier company when I thought, ‘Bugger this. I can do this better’. And, by crikey, I did. Working initially with big blue chip companies like Oracle in Bracknell, I provided a 24 hour, 7 day a week service and soon earned a place in the National Courier Association (NCA). By 1998 I was a committee member in the NCA and Chairman of the Despatch Association. And word about Diamond’s success spread. By 1999 I was being asked to help when companies were in trouble or needed help starting up. So I learnt, through many different logistics oriented businesses, the trials and tribulations of different operating practices. A good few years passed with me earning lucrative consultancy fees in addition to Diamond continuing to thrive. Diamond was in its ‘boutique’ form then and not that scalable. By 2011 I had seen enough to know what not to do and what to do and it was time for me to focus solely on Diamond.

Diamond, to grow, had to service diversify and extend its geographical reach. At the same time a chap called Daniel Allin had some ideas on how courier companies could service diversify. Which was handy! He’d spent many years either running his own company or working hard in someone else’s and again had lots of industry experience. So when we met we had a lot of synergy in where we had been and where we thought the industry could go. We formed a plan. We wanted all the ingredients that made Diamond really successful to be retained. We care passionately about our service levels, because we are only as good as our last successful delivery. We wanted to retain local, relationship led client management because that’s what kept our clients using us time and time again. We wanted to have the best of both worlds and enjoy some of the bits that make big business successful – like the buying power to cost effectively utilise the big national carriers thus offering all the possible services our clients may need. And we wanted to retain our unique marketing and personality. To set ourselves above the competition. You see, once upon a time, people used to think all couriers were the same...

Not now. Not A.D. (After Diamond that is!) Diamond has grown and we have big plans to expand our brand. We have the very best in local service standards backed by national and international delivery infrastructures, which makes us small enough to care but big enough to cope. Our clients and depots get the best of both worlds. Diamond’s motto is ‘Shared Success’ - working in partnership with clients, suppliers, team members and its franchises. It’s a different way of collaborative working and it reaps great results, because everyone is pulling together to share the vision of mutual benefit and success. In 2014 we are limiting numbers to 20. Why? Because simply ‘flogging a franchise’ is not what we are about. We want to build stable, sustainable and profitable franchises to launch the UK’s best national courier network. We choose carefully, we only choose the best and we devote A LOT of management time to make sure our franchises have the very best support available to help their business to grow. So only 20 opportunities left as we go to print, and then that’s it until 2015. 18 Find out more about what makes Diamond special at www.reallygoodcouriers.com I hope we have you on board soon!

Big or small we deliver it all The Diamond Difference Diamond gives you the best of both worlds – with locally owned depots backed by a national and international service infrastructure. Local ownership of depots who TRULY CARE about their local clients, building their sustainable business by establishing long term partnerships with their clients. Our CONTRACT FREE requirement means they are under no obligation to use us. They just do because we make sure we deliver a great service. It’s the main reason our clients keep buying time and time again. For years. And the strength in grouping together under Diamond Logistics HQ and all its resources means the local depots have all the resources that a big name national or international courier might have. Letters to London. Boxes to Belarus. Pallets to Paris. We’ve got it covered.

Our franchises are small enough to really care, but big enough to cope. This is unique. •

No call centres. No 0845 numbers – we provide direct dial number for all our depots.

No account numbers! We know our clients by name and understand they are real people who want to speak to a real person locally, who knows their business and understands the importance of their deliveries.

No brushing you o – A Diamond depot will have won their clients PERSONALLY and their income will depend on making sure you are 100% satis ed.

So you know they really care about customer service.

It’s very special. It’s VERY RARE. And our clients love it. Which is why they use us repeatedly for years. Once a client comes on board they get to rely on Diamond service and stay with us for years and years and years! In fact our rst ever client, 21 years ago, is still trading with us to this day! It’s good for our clients because our long term knowledge of their requirements means using Diamond is e cient and easy, letting them focus their core business and make better pro ts. It’s good for our depots because they get to know their clients, enjoy a long and rewarding relationship and continue to earn a regular income. We call them CLIENTS not customers for a reason. A customer uses you once. A client uses your services repeatedly.

Diamonds motto is shared success It’s all about partnerships. Between Diamond HQ, its Clients, its Franchises, its Carriers and its Couriers.

Let’s introduce the carriers We use CARRIERS for their UK and international networks. Diamond works in partnership with many household names like TNT, UPS, Parcelforce, Citylink and many more. We choose them very carefully and analyse their performance every month to make sure we keep using the best performing of them all. If they don’t continually match our standards, then we don’t use them. We hold big corporate accounts so the customer service we get from them is superior and our clients get to bene t from our buying rates.

The couriers A Diamond courier is a very special person. Very di erent from your run of the mill man and a van. We have lots of second career people - ladies and gents, often over 50, from a broad range of sectors (including ex-company directors, reman, military and more) – that share the same common ground; lots of common sense, very good discipline and that all-important initiative that is paramount. They are a cut above your average courier so you know your VIP’s (Very Important Parcels) are being taken good care of. And again, our couriers work with Diamond for years. So they know the clients and how best to help them.

Meet our franchisees Back from the brink with the help of Diamond

Hi, My name‘s Russell Skinner and I run a successful franchise with Diamond Logistics, from Bognor, near Chichester. Actually my story with Diamond started about 5 years ago when I ran in to trouble. I’d been in the courier business over 20 years but the recession had cost me dearly and the bills were becoming impossible to pay. And to be honest the 24 hours a day and seven days a week without adequate reward was tough on me and my family. I knew Kate had a record of turning around businesses and approached her to take on my company RS Couriers and retain me and my sta , which she did. What she did with the business was nothing short of amazing and we glided through the recession. However I still had an itch. I’d learnt a lot from Kate about the best way to run a business and how to make the business work for you so I was sure that if I tried again I could make a success the second time round. But I wasn’t going to do it alone. So when she o ered me a franchise opportunity I jumped at the chance. Now it is hard work but hours wise it’s pretty much 0800 – to 1800 ve days a week. So I have weekends and evenings free to spend with my wife and kids. I have really grown the business, have staff who run it when I’m not there and have had a great 2013 – well up on last year! I would thoroughly recommend a franchise – it the very best of both worlds – you get all the operations, administrative and market support from Diamond but it is still my own and my own e orts are rewarded back to me with a good income. One really key issue was the nancing. In January a key client of mine up-traded by 300% - representing 90% of my turnover in a record month. Really busy! Operationally and nancially I simply would not have been able to cope with that. A bank wouldn't have nanced that kind of working capital and operationally without HQ there were times I wouldn’t have coped without their help. But as part of the Diamond, I knew Kate and her team would take care of it. And they did. I love running my own business and I love being rewarded for that. But in order to make sure I was a success and to help me grow I needed support and that’s just what Diamond gives. They want you to be super successful which is why they work so hard to make sure I am – in fact my biggest client was a lead from HQ! Their motto of ‘Shared Success’ says it all. If you’d like to have a chat why not give me a shout on 01243 829222 or email russell@diamondlogistics.co.uk.

Meet our franchisees From a man in the van to £20k turnover a month in 7 months.

Hi, My name’s Nathan and I own Diamond Logistics Southampton. I’ll keep it brief as I am a busy man. I have a business to run! Diamond offered me a pilot franchise and I have just finished my first year. I started out doing both ops and sales but now have expanded the business sufficiently to concentrate wholly on Sales to expand my business even more. By the end of this year I fully expect to turnover over £50k per month. I worked in Overnight Courier for many years, and had just branched out into running my own man and a van service. But it relied on me doing multi drop runs for carriers, occasionally adding a subcontractor or two to the mix. Daniel o ered me the opportunity and I grabbed it. He’s worked with me full on in the last six months and his support and hand holding has been invaluable. I started literally on a shoe string which has meant it hasn’t always been easy so I’d recommend to any one starting that they think about having enough working capital to invest to ease the rst months. Despite me running the depot single handed for the best part of a year I have done really well – new bigger depot already, and sales in excess of £30k. Kate and Dan have worked intensively with me to help me focus on the key areas (like the most profitable clients) and it’s been a steep learning curve, and the more I focus on sales the more I watch my turnover rocket. Diamond has handed me work on a plate. I have the power to negotiate my prices with my clients and the huge service pro le means I can be a exible and adaptive solution to my clients – which makes sales easy. My clients love having the support of a big company – i.e. all the resources they need – but the thing that keeps my clients coming back every day is me, quite frankly. The deals Diamond have with the carriers are great, the support team at Diamond HQ are always there and yet I am left to my own devices enough so I still feel independent. It really is the best of both worlds. If you want to know more, give me a shout on 02380 988919 or send me an email at nathan@diamondlogistics.co.uk

Then there’s our 2 day Launch Support – on site at your depot.

What you’ll do as a franchisee The fundamentals of this opportunity are sales and operations. It will be your job to nd new clients and to collect from them on a daily basis and feed parcels into your local carrier depots. You’ll need to put in a lot of groundwork, visiting industrial estates and being organised in your sales programme. We’ll show you how to do this with our proven 7 Step programme to guide you to a steady stream of new business. Once you are up and running, naturally less time will be spent on sales and more on operations. But the nature of this business is that predominantly your clients work will need to be collected in the afternoon leaving your mornings free for business development and the minimal administration. Administration is low because we centralise all billing, invoicing and your payments. We even do most of the credit control. That’s what our management fee covers. So you are free to do the pro table activities – meeting new people and providing your regular clients with excellent service. You’ll be allocated a postcode area and shown how to find new business. With your Diamond Marketing and Sales Programme you’ll have sales coming in, in no time and we’ll guide you through it every step of the way. Before you know it you will be running a successful Diamond depot.

Let’s talk about the money Working capital We suggest approximately £30,000 - £40,000 to launch your depot successfully and to keep you going until you can draw down from your new business income from sales. If you spend your money and time wisely, the more focused your launch the quicker the return on your investment. You can’t make money without spending some – it is unavoidable. So if you are down to your last coppers this isn’t for you. Sorry.

And let’s be frank Don’t buy a franchise expecting sales to walk in through the door. You need to go out and get them. But once you do this our low cost model means you can earn yourself a very nice on-going income in a relatively short time frame.

The figures Your success will be based on establishing a pro table business. Pro tability is subject to three key factors in this arena. Firstly it’s the COST OF SALES or RATES that Diamond HQ secures from the carriers. We’ve already negotiated storming deals so your buying rates are amazingly competitive.

The next two are down to you Second, the GROSS MARGIN you make is subject to what price you sell your services at. So only o er discounts to clients that send volume. In the Manual we discuss in greater length margin versus mark up and why 30% is a minimum level to strive for. Third, is the OPERATING COSTS you may have. We’ve worked hard to get the best leasing deals, best printing deals etc. but you need to keep an eye on all the costs to do with running your depot – which we’ve outlined under Operating Costs on your Pro t and Loss forecast. In the initial stages you can cover collections and some courier work yourself – diverting phones to mobile whilst you’re out and about – which will make your margins even better. As you grow your business we will help you keep your costs low by showing you the most cost e ective ways to run your operations. We’ll work with you to make sure you maximise your pro tability. Your success equals our success so we have a vested interest in your continued pro tability. Operating a Diamond franchise is very easy and your income (directly based on the sales you generate) is very straightforward. You will be paid your rst income on or around (subject to weekends etc) the 12th of the month following your rst sales month. Example income breakdown; Sales generated: Diamond HQ admin fee @ 10%: Carrier Costs @ 40% margin: Balance to franchisor:

£30,000 £3,000 £18,000 £9,000

From the balance paid to you, you will need to cover all your running costs.

Franchise Project Plan The timing of the launch of your depot is important. We know the buying cycles of people needing our services and the best time to be selling your service profile is January to September. So a launch date is SUPER important. Next year we are setting up January to June and that’s it, folks, until 2015! January and February provides enormous opportunity to get new clients – same for the rest. You see, we really want our Franchises to be successful so this kind of detail is important. If we just wanted to flog you a franchise, we wouldn’t give a monkeys when you launch. But our aim is provide a good strong network so your success is essential to us, as much as it is to you. So launch dates matter.

10 steps to your new business Step #1 Complete the full franchise application form Application forms need to be with us, along with accompanying documents in full before this process progresses.

Step #2 Interview with Kate or Dan Meet the key players that will be instrumental in launching your franchise.

Step #3 The checks The nal decision will be made within two weeks from your interview SUBJECT to you passing our due diligence. This will include CRB checks, evidence of working capital or accounts if an existing business etc.

Step #4 Do your groundwork Don’t take our word for it. Go out and speak to businesses and say what you will be doing and start sowing the seeds for your local depot. You MAY NOT use Diamonds name to promote at this point – this is not for use until your agreement is signed, sealed and delivered back to Diamond HQ.

Step #5 The legals You will be issued with our Agency Franchise Agreement which you should get checked over by a solicitor. Sign it, return it and we will start the Launch Plan. There are advisory times in the year to start a Diamond Agency Franchise to maximise the success potential so be sure you don’t miss your window.

Step #6 Do your homework On completion of the legals you will be sent your manual at least two weeks prior to training – read it from cover to cover and come to training fully prepared with your questions, knowing who your competitors are and who your Top 50 target list is.

Step #7 Training

You’ll be issued with your Starter Kit, your uniform and your Business in a Box. You will then undergo three days of our unique and intensive course on Diamond, it’s ethics, methodology and defining your goals and ambitions and putting that into a tangible plan for your depot launch. The first day covers business basics, the second, goals, psychology and sales, and on day three, operations, pricing and admin.

Step #8 Depot setup You’ll be expected to have premises, broadband and phone line in place. Dan will come out and personally set you up as a depot and start the sales process with you.

Step #9 Your first clients, collections and carriers Once you sign clients up they will start to use you very quickly. Before you know it you will establish a collection run, and then we will arrange for the carrier to collect from you at an agreed time in the afternoon. We are on hand to lead you through the whole process and it’s very straightforward. There’s a hugely comprehensive manual, online help and if the answer’s not there, we are always available to take your call.

Step #10 First income Happy days! Once your rst months sales are concluded, this is when you’ll receive your income statement from Diamond HQ. These reconciliations are made by the 10th and the payment made by the 12th (or the next working day following if it falls on a weekend).
