FOCUS ON

A series of seminars, each focusing on a different franchise sector. Comprising of; • • • • • •

A brief introducing into franchising The characteristics of the sector Investment levels and expected return Skills needed Common pitfall’s The day-to-day running’s.

BUSINESS TO BUSINESS The UK B2B franchise market has seen significant growth in recent years. The sector covers a multitude of business services – from helping clients grow to reducing their costs – the market covers consultancy, marketing, internet and much more.

MANAGEMENT If you are a ‘people person’ and enjoy managing a team, this sector is one to consider. Management franchises come in all shapes and sizes; from children’s nurseries to training centres. Learn from a franchisor who has helped individuals reach independence by utilising their natural skills with people.

£

LOW INVESTMENT Low-cost franchises are those that typically cost £15000 or less, in many instances the investment required is less than £5000. Attend this seminar to find out more about the opportunities available within this sector and the types of franchises within this market.

HOME BASED / FLEXIBLE WORKING This is a seminar for people who are looking for flexibility over high profits. Entrepreneurs and mumpreneurs who want to build a business to fit around their lifestyle. This is not to suggest that flexibility in working hours always means working part time, resulting in a part time income - you may work 50 hours a week, earning handsomely.

RETAIL / RESTAURANTS 10 years ago, if you asked a man on the street what a franchise was, the chances are he would give a fast food chain or a shop as an example. A franchised coffee brand will almost always draw a larger crowd to that of an independent coffee shop - find out how and why, learn the ins and outs of this profitable sector.

£

HIGH INVESTMENT High investment suggests high rewards, making this sector extremely attractive to the ambitious franchisee. Many of the large multi-national corporates are in fact franchises. At this level in the franchising market, the potential for significant financial gain clearly exists.

CHILDREN / EDUCATION The services provided by franchises within this sector do not suffer from the vagaries of the economic climate. People will always pay for their children to be safely looked after whilst at work, or if their child requires additional help with their education. This seminar will provide you with market insight and the knowledge to choose, start and run a franchise within this sector.

HEALTH & FITNESS After a year of sport that the UK has never seen the likes of before, the health and fitness market is set to explode in 2013. And, as people become more body-aware, joining the gym or a fitness class will be a top priority. This session will cover everything you need to know about getting involved in the flourishing fitness industry.

HOSPITALITY If providing customer service is your speciality, then a franchise in hospitality could be your calling. The hospitality industry covers a large scale of the service sector from hotels to theme parks, opening a window of opportunity for anyone with experience in great customer service. 10 | THE FRANCHISE SHOW FEBRUARY 2013 www.thefranchiseshow.co.uk

MURIELLE MAUPOINT Live It Ventures

Ladies, Time to Take the Plunge! Do you dream of running your own business but are afraid of taking the plunge? In this highly motivational seminar, Murielle Maupoint, the Women Entrepreneur’s Coach, shares some of the ups and downs of starting your own business.

SAT: 11.30 - 12.00 & 14.30 - 15.00

It wasn’t so long ago that women were unable to cast their vote in national elections, were seen as nothing more than breeding machines, and were quite frankly second class citizens. Nowadays, women are swapping baby bibs for Blackberries, altering the once male-dominated business landscape forever. In fact, women have since proven their prowess in the upper echelons of business, and you’ll now find female CEOs heading up some of the biggest and most powerful corporations in the world. It’s a balance of power that is still tipping, and rightly so.

The EWIF Information Area is at the show to support women looking to buy a franchise or franchise their business. Visitors can receive independent, impartial advice from an experienced professional within the franchise industry.

At The Franchise Show, we’ve always believed in encouraging more women into business, to help redress the balance somewhat, and that’s something we will continue to do. This February, we’re once again working in partnership with a group of not-for-profit organisations named EWIF (The ‘Encouraging Women Into Franchising’ Group) to present the Encouraging Women Into Franchising Information Area.

As well as the Information Point, delivering bespoke advice and help in getting to grips with the industry, you can also take advantage of a number of EWIF seminars. These seminars will run over both says, and attending is a good starting point for anyone looking to start out in franchising, especially if you’re a woman.

We’d love you to find your future business here at the show, so we’ve put on a great seminar schedule to help you find what you’re looking for. And when you’re done with the seminars, there are a few things to remember when seeking out brands at the show... Quiz the Franchisee aims to take you right to the heart of franchising.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT FRANCHISE

QUIZ THE FRANCHISORS Finding a franchise is easy. But finding the perfect match is a little harder. We’d love you to find your future business here at the show, so we’ve put on a great seminar schedule to help you find what you’re looking for. Also when you’re done with the seminars, there are a few things to remember when seeking out brands at the show...

Use The Franchise Show to find out exactly what you need to know before investing into a franchise – from franchising in general to individual brands. The seminar theatres also offer a great platform to get hold of the latest industry information, but we’ve picked out a handful of questions that you might find useful when grilling the exhibiting brands...

BUDGET

PERSONALITY

How much does your franchise cost and what will be the gross profit margin?

Know your budget and make sure the expected financial return is enough to meet your needs. Don’t fall in love with a brand that is totally out of your price range, even if it’s the best business ever. And don’t be surprised if you do find the business of your dreams – we get some real world-beating franchises here.

Ensure your personality matches the franchise in front of you. There are loads to choose from here – from children’s entertainment to mobile franchises – so you’re bound to find a business to match your character and ambition.

What continuing support will be offered after the business has started?

RESEARCH THE MARKET Get clued up before taking the plunge. Areas of the franchise market vary greatly – from profitability to level of investment, so make sure you know exactly what you’re getting in to. The Focus On Seminars can help give you an overview of any area of franchising – check out the timetable on page 10.

USE YOUR TIME EFFECTIVELY There’s a reason The Franchise Show runs over two days – it’s the sheer number of brands to speak to, seminars to see, and contacts to make. But if you just plan on coming for one day, it’s important that you use that time wisely and get the most you possibly can out of the event. Attend the useful seminars,earmark the brands you’re interested in, and dish out as many business cards as humanly possible.

How many franchisees do you currently have, and how many have failed/succeeded?

What point of sale and promotional literature do you supply? What systems are in place for keeping franchisees in touch with one another? What kind of person will your franchise suit? How to you select franchisees? What help will I receive with local advertising and promotion? Will you find me a site or do I have to do it? Is there a training programme? If so, who pays for my training? What help do you offer with bookkeeping? Can I meet with some of your franchisees / staff?

www.thefranchiseshow.co.uk FEBRUARY 2013 THE FRANCHISE SHOW | 13

THE FRANCHISE SHOW

CONFERENCE Finding the perfect franchise means meticulous research – usually week upon week of it – trawling the Internet and wading through text-heavy hardbacks. We think research should be a little more engaging. A little more time-efficient. Researching your move into franchising should be about discovering the industry from every angle. It should be

franchisors and franchisees giving you the inside track; uncovering opportunities on and off your radar, in sectors you didn’t even know existed. We believe the best research is done by interacting with those

who know all about the industry, so we’ve filled our conference schedule with leading experts, franchisors, and franchisees – all delivering seminars designed to help visitors get straight to the right information quickly and easily.

Our Focus On seminars will offer 30-minute seminars on nearly every franchise area conceivable, helping every type of visitor get exactly what they want. Our extensive programme of seminars

also covers Encouraging Women Into Franchising and Franchise Essentials.

Save yourself time and money by attending The Franchise Show Conference – it’s your head-start in an industry that has a lot to offer and, after these seminars, little to fear.

Patpet Ap ienite ce is fora suc virtue cess Two decades in the making, Suit the City is now recruiting

I

S

tarting a business is what many people dream of, but most don’t have to wait 20 years for the dream to become a reality. In fact, many never get to live their dreams. But, as they say, patience is a virtue and good things come to those who wait - which was exactly the case for Carol Rawson, director of Suit the City While working in London in the late 1980s, Carol wanted to be her own boss. As a woman facing the ever present glass ceiling, she felt well and truly omitted from the ‘Old Boy’s Club’. The ‘boys’ all played golf and dressed in the corporate uniform of dark suit and white shirt, and when Carol received instructions from her employer about ‘how to dress for work’ in a dark suit, white shirt, dark socks and sober tie, she sent the instructions back with one question: do you want me to look like an escapee from St Trinian’s?

Image

Thus began the search for an image that was professional, yet feminine, business-like, yet with a nod to fashion. After all, dressing like a man was never the goal. Disappointment when shopping was guaranteed - clothes didn’t fit, they were made out of cheap fabrics and just didn’t convey the right image. What came out of Carol’s experience was an idea for beautiful garments that were made to measure, which finally became Suit the City. So a backer was sought and the search for premises began. Unfortunately, the backer pulled out and the idea was temporarily shelved. The concept was brought down from the shelf several times during the next 10 years, with successive problems being encountered and various difficulties jeopardising progress. Finally, in 2006 Carol employed Sallie Belton, a student at Oxford Brookes

University who arrived to work in anot another ther of Carol’s business ventures during g her he er third year placement from university. sity.

Keen

Sallie was a breath of fresh air and d kee keen en to get going with Suit the City. So Suit the he Ci City ity came into being for a second time. In the e int interim terim years technology had caught up with the idea and computerised pattern cutting had d made manufacturing one-off garments a po possibility. ossibility.

Why did you choose franchising?

“Some big TV events such as football and bank holidays will boost our deliveries quite dramatically. People will choose to stay in to spend time with family and friends and enjoy an evening together watching some of their favourite entertainment.” Phil adds: “We do everything possible to make sure they receive their meal hot and delicious in less than 30 minutes from the time they order. We deliver around 80 per cent of our total orders, with at least 35 per cent coming via the website - this move to online sales is a growing trend we’ve witnessed over the last few years.” As the world’s largest pizza company, Pizza Hut was founded in 1958 when brothers Frank and Dan Carney opened a modest 25-seat pizza restaurant in Wichita, Kansas. When it came to the name, the place looked like a hut and there was only room for nine letters on the sign. So Pizza Hut was born. Now there are over 13,000

Phil Skrynski wanted a franchise that was a cash business with a proven operating model. Pizza Hut Delivery ticked all the boxes. Trevor Johnson reports

t’s cold outside and there’s a recession on, so why on earth should anyone want to go out? With a DVD, a nice bottle of wine and a piping hot pizza brought to your door, a night in is cheaper, warmer, and has never seemed more appealing. Latest research continues to show that staying in really is the new going out. As consumer trends change, so do business opportunities and - as more of us choose a night in over splashing the cash on outside entertainment - the pizza and pasta market goes from strength to strength. Pizza Hut Delivery is on course to open more than 50 new stores in 2013 as part of its plan to eventually have at least 700 delivery franchises in the UK. In Oldham, Phil Skrynski has run the Pizza Hut Delivery franchise for the past year and, with business booming, he believes his original target of another 10-15 franchises within five years is still firmly on track. 48 28

Paul & Linda Cronin A franchise offering a better quality of life After 30 years building an impressive corporate career in the IT world, Paul Cronin felt the urge to get out of the rat race and run his own business. His career culminated in the role of VP of Sales for a telecommunications software company. With his three children now young adults, Paul began to reassess his options. Paul and his wife Linda decided they wanted a business they could run together and, having already invested in property during the boom years, it presented an attractive option. Paul explains their thinking at the time saying; “When we first ventured into the world of property investment, the benefits were fairly intangible. Buying and selling was risky because we were assuming there would be short term captial growth. Before setting out on our own again, we recognised that we needed a more certain return on investment in respect to both our time and money. “We were struggling to choose between six excellent franchises, until I realised that

Platinum Property Partners had two features that set it apart. Firstly, the other franchises required continuous selling - fail to sell sufficiently and the business fails to exist – PPP offers the attraction of passive income after some initial hard work, without the sales slog I was trying to get away from. Secondly, where most other franchises leave you with just good will, with PPP we are accumulating tangible, appreciating assets in bricks and mortar. These were the key reasons we selected PPP.”

THE FIGURES

Paul and Linda joined the PPP franchise in April 2010, through which they are building a highly cash-positive property portfolio. They now have four HMOs up and running,

achieving financial freedom and thus being able to choose how and with whom we spend our time. Being part of such a community has already had an incredibly positive impact on our lives.

the personal and financial rewards of running our own business.” Paul and Linda observed the pressures associated with sales-dominated franchises, which can shatter attempts at a profitable work-life balance and leave you with little to show for your efforts. PPP offer a different solution to standard franchise options, one which is not dependent on trading your time for money, but offers a valuable and tangible asset base as well as a regular income.

7 years strong for ActionCOACH Franchise Partner Stephen Unwin joined ActionCOACH in 2005 and has now been successfully operating his East Anglia territory for more than 7 years. “I first became aware of ActionCOACH through a friend who described his work as a business coach and recommended it to me. He advised me to speak to Ian Christelow, ActionCOACH’s UK Managing Director. After I talked to Ian (picture left), I had a really clear picture and understanding of what ActionCOACH does and what being an ActionCOACH would mean for me. I have always been a keen sportsman and had been involved in growing and developing a number of small businesses, so the concept and value of having a business coach really resonated with me.”

Most businesses excel at their trade or profession, unfortunately that doesn’t mean that they’re great at the ‘business of business’. In reality less than 10% of businesses survive the first 10 years of operation. ActionCOACH is the world’s number one business coaching franchise, with more than 1,000 offices in 40 countries and thrives by helping business owners achieve their goals. “I would definitely make the decision to become an Action Business Coach again. In fact, I have done just that this year as I renewed my ActionCOACH franchise agreement. I am very excited that I will be able to continue being an Action Coach for a second term.” ActionCOACH currently has a UK network of 90 coaches in an industry that is growing by 40% a year. If you have the passion to grow your own business whilst helping other business owners do the same, why not visit them at stand 314.

The start-up costs seemed reasonable and the activity looked both fun and easy to operate. A few weeks later they signed up. Ann said: “Our very first booking was at a prep school with 70 little boys from the ages of 4 to 11 creating their sand art pictures! It was a challenge but proved great fun and went really well.” “Right from the beginning the franchise back-up has been brilliant. The initial package included a generous amount of materials and the friendly training and guidance gave us confidence.” “But we still had the freedom to build our own business in a style to suit us and our local area. As with any venture you get out what you put in. We have been hectic at times but have also had great flexibility to work the business to fit our lifestyle - and no boss to answer to but ourselves!” “We are working to a two year plan and at present have chosen to reinvest in the business. We are on course to recoup our initial franchise cost within the first year and have also chosen to build up a high level of stock as well as marketing materials such as posters and flyers.” “We have also focused on networking and building up valuable contacts and are already seeing the benefits with ever increasing bookings for workshops and parties to ensure a good income.” Kids Bee Happy can comfortably be operated as a oneperson business but Ann and Joanna-Marie used their individual strong points to market their business right from the start.

Joanna-Marie said: “I take care of all our online marketing while Mum focuses on more traditional ways of letting people know about us. We have our own website, facebook page and twitter account which have been great for keeping people up to date with our public appearances and displaying photos of our events as well as for keeping in touch with contacts in our area.” Taking part in public events and festivals boosts their profile as well as bringing in revenue.

Ann said: “For example on Jubilee weekend. We were booked on all four days for big events. We achieved our earnings for each day but also got bookings for ongoing private parties.” “We have a base price of £4 a picture which is both affordable for parents and sufficient to give us a good return after allowing for materials and costs. At events we offer a discount price for more than one child doing a picture which increases turnover.“ The pair have built excellent working relationships with local venues. They hold regular workshops at Butterfly World, a major family attraction in their area as well as in hotels, pubs and coffee shops. Private bookings that have come from these include birthday parties, Christenings, a brownie pack fun day and an after-school club. Joanna summed up why they are glad they chose this business: “The kids (and their parents!) enjoy the activity as much as we do and it is great to see their beaming smiles when they have completed their pictures. The business is easy to run and Mum and I love being able to work together. We also have a great support network of other KBH franchisees and the head office team. In short, Kids Bee Happy is a great opportunity for anyone looking to run their own business.”

My own successful procurement business and a six figure salary

Keith Copestake is proof of the outstanding earning potential of a successful ERA consultancy, consecutively earning an average six figure salary for each year that he has been a franchise partner. In 2012, Keith was the second highest earner of the ERA network with an exceptional annual earning of £295,541.

Keith joined ERA in 2006 with over 25 years experience in the office products and print industry. His last role was a Director of the world’s largest office products and IT consumables company. Keith’s career started out in print production before moving on to a marketing role, then into sales of print and office products responsible for pan European and Global contracts.

£300,000 £300,000 £250,000 £250,000

Since joining ERA, Keith has used his extensive knowledge of the office supplies and print industry to successfully uncover over £500,000 worth of savings for his delighted clients. “When I decided to leave employment, the idea of franchising appealed to me because I felt it was a more viable way of starting a successful business. Following a tried and trusted model means less risk. I was attracted to the ERA model because I wanted a whitecollar opportunity that suited the management skills I had built over a long career. I was familiar with the concept and could see how it works in practice and why it was a worthwhile investment.” Keith took the plunge into self employment by pursuing the ERA franchise opportunity and hasn’t looked back. Now he enjoys an enviable work-life balance allowing him to take multiple trips a year, a property in Spain which he bought for cash and a salary most would dream of.

£200,000 £200,000 £150,000 £150,000 £100,000 £100,000 £50,000 £50,000 2007

Based in Andover, Hampshire, Keith's successful procurement practice is currently run from serviced offices near to his home. In his free time, he enjoys cooking, playing golf and watching his favourite football team, Aston Villa.

“Being my own boss gives me the control to plan my work schedule. I can fly over to my ‘Spanish office’ and enjoy the sunshine whilst working. I bought the property earlier this year and I’m hoping to spend between 3 and 4 months of the year there on working holidays.”

LONDON’S OLDEST AND LARGEST CLEANING AGENCY OFFERS FRANCHISES NATIONWIDE When Matthew and Teresa started Homeclean in 1985 they had little knowledge or experience of what a gold-mine they were tapping into. The agency was an instant success: times were changing quickly and there was no longer a housewife at home happy to do domestic chores, the domestic cleaning market was beginning to take off and Matthew and Teresa were in at the start.

In those days there was no internet or text messaging so the business was run with paper files and leaflet drops and worse of all they had to phone cleaner on their home number and then wait patiently for them to call back the next day to take jobs, imagine! Now, things have moved on and they have developed a brilliant and highly successful operation where jobs come in thick and fast electronically and cleaners are allocated efficiently and quickly to clients with a fully integrated back-up system all thanks to the internet and an all singing, all dancing database which makes the job a whole lot easier. Homeclean has now grown to be the largest and most successful cleaning agency in London with over 5,000 regular, weekly clients and spanning the whole of greater London.

Homeclean is now offering Franchise opportunities all over the UK. with the promise that Franchisees will profit from running a highly efficient cleaning agency in a world where everyone, male and female, young and old are ready to spend money on domestic help to win back some free time to themselves. In today’s frantic climate people are so busy that they have no time to spend on domestic chores. There have been many reports to prove that the market for domestic cleaners has been booming in the last five years and is expected to continue expanding as people get busier and busier making a Franchise business in the residential cleaning sector a safe and highly profitable concern.

THE SUPPORT ON OFFER AT AUDITEL IS SECOND TO NONE

Until March 2011, Chartered Accountant Stephen Sowerby was an Assistant Manager in KPMG’s Risk Advisory Department. Stephen recalls: “I had always wanted to have my own business. Eventually I considered franchising and found the Auditel Franchise through the British Franchise Association. I chose Auditel. It presented me with the opportunity of starting up on my own, while having the support of a proven format that has survived for over 18 years. Stephen confirms that the initial training is of very high quality. The support on offer is second to none in helping to grow your business. “I now have an established client base where relationships are maturing and initial projects have been completed. Referrals are also helping to grow my business at an encouraging rate. This past year has been successful and most enjoyable.

NIGHT & DAY FRANCHISE Issue 01 Summer 2012 FREE

The best of the best that Salzburg has to offer. Attractions Eating Out History Key Areas Nightlife City Map

My name is Heinz Reigl and I was fortunate enough in the summer of last year to discover the Night & Day franchise opportunity offered by DW Publishing. The timing was perfect for me, as my son is based in Salzburg and he was looking for a new challenge having worked in the hotel industry for a number of years. We visited the head office in Prague and my immediate reaction of DW Publishing was one of honesty and realism about the challenges that lay ahead if I was to take the next step and sign the franchise contract for Salzburg Night & Day magazine.

The honesty factor was a huge influence for us and the staff at DW Publishing made it very clear that with the first edition of any new city magazine it would be challenging. However, my son Alex was up for that challenge and less than 3 months later the first edition of Salzburg Night & Day arrived in the city and it was a wonderful feeling. Not only did we start making profit immediately but by the launch of our second edition, incredibly we have already recovered all of our investment. My son is so happy with his new business and it has given me the bug too. I am now actively recruiting people in Vienna to take my next Night & Day magazine franchise and I don’t intend to stop there. That’s the incredible opportunity that this franchise offers. The sky really is the limit.

STAND 554

Over the following two days we discussed all aspects of the business and the advice and guidance that was given inspired us with the confidence to move forward. The investment level was very low for a business with such magnificent potential

and although it was made clear to us that hard work and dedication would be required to make a success of it, my son was instantly committed and excited about the project.

The product speaks for itself

and the fact that it is not limited to any age group or ability means the possibilities are endless. I have worked with individuals from the age of 3 – 73 with mixed abilities – the response every time is that they love it!” “The training worked at a pace to suit me and I was amazed

“Our next objective is to recruit more instructors and grow the amount of classes that we currently offer. I am hugely excited about the future of Jumping Clay UK & Ireland and delighted that I’ve had the opportunity to become a part of it.”

Being a woman who ‘cannot sit still’ and having been responsible for the bookkeeping for all of her past business ventures she decided to explore this sector for a business opportunity.

“I felt that with a franchise I could have the freedom to run my own business, but with the peace of mind of a support network behind me every step of the way. I looked at several bookkeeping franchises but was absolutely sold on Cloud Bookkeeping when I met Mandy, the franchisor, at the initial meeting. I even cancelled the appointments I had with other franchisors, as I felt you couldn’t get better than her.” Yvette started her Cloud Bookkeeping business, in Harlow, in July 2011 and her clients cover many industries, including: windows and conservatories, marketing, electrical appliance retail, beauty care, and solicitors. “The training I received was second to none; Mandy has done everything she said she would do and more. Once I started actively networking, the hard work paid off, I now have a range of clients who are keeping me on my toes. It is really gratifying to see my business growing at the rate it is.”

When new franchisees receive their “business is a box”, few would expect that box to come complete with skeletons! Yet skeletons, finger-printing kits, crime scene materials and story boards – along with an operations manual and training plan, publicity materials, branded work-wear and much more – are all part of an innovative, franchise package from The Detective Project, to be launched at The Franchise Show 2013.

The Detective Project is the brainchild of Jenny Williams, a former Metropolitan and Avon and Somerset police detective, who two years ago combined her interest in and knowledge of scene of crime investigations with her experience as a mother of two, to create an exciting business delivering science-based events for children and adults alike. From challenging but fun party experiences, curriculum-based interesting and inspiring science projects for schools, clubs and groups, to fascinating corporate events or powerful team-building activity for businesses, The Detective Project taps into a national passion for, and interest in, crime at an age-appropriate level, based on the expertise of a former police detective.

The Detective Project, which has already won a Mumpreneur 100 award and a 2012 What’s On for Juniors award, now offers the opportunity to run an exciting, innovative, home-based, business with low overheads and huge potential backed by full training and total commitment from its founding entrepreneur with all the branding and materials needed to run successful crime scene investigation parties and events. Whilst The Detective Project will appeal to former police officers and forensic scientists as well as teachers and event managers, anyone who is people orientated can, with the comprehensive training package and process, be fully prepared and equipped to run their own business.

Within two years we have gone from a start-up to a successful business which is attracting enquiries from across the UK.

Events are based on real investigation techniques, helping participants explore how crime is investigated in the 21st century using cutting-edge forensic science theory and practice and aim to spark interest in science through “hands on” challenges.

“The Detective Project is largely about communicating effectively with children and adults, parents and teachers, individuals and businesses. Our materials and storyboards are tried and tested whilst extensive one-to-one training will help franchisees

understand the investigative and scientific elements of the events and explain the modern science and forensic techniques underpinning the flow of The Detective Project’s events.” says Jenny. “Within two years we have gone from a start-up to a successful business which is attracting enquiries from across the UK. As name and reputation spreads we anticipate high demand for our unusual events

among a range of different audiences, from parents to schools to corporate businesses. “The launch of our franchise offers a superb opportunity to run a business with a difference and we are looking for the right people to help us build a wellknown and respected UK brand.” Jenny continues. “And, by providing a mix of school, party and corporate events franchisees will largely be able to tailor their working hours to suit.”

The Value of Intellectual Property Did you know, investment in UK businesses protected by Intellectual Property Rights is now worth around £65 Billion per year1? Also, investment by businesses to protect their IP using patents, trademarks, designs and copyright has more than doubled since 19901. This highlights the importance of understanding how a business can and will benefit from IP. There are four main types of IP – which we manage at the Intellectual Property Office (IPO – part of the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills). 1. Patents protect new inventions and covers how things work, what they do, how they do it, what they are made of and how they are made. It gives the owner the right to prevent others from making, using, importing or selling the invention without permission.

3. Registered Designs are a legal right which protects the overall visual appearance of a product in the country or countries you register it. The visual features that form the design include such things as the lines, contours, colours, shape, texture, materials and the ornamentation of the product which give it a unique appearance. 4. Copyright protects many types of work, from music and lyrics to photographs and knitting patterns. Many people think of IP only in relation to inventions and patents, and as a consequence, are unaware of the potential commercial benefits and IP asset protection that can come from registering Trade Marks, Designs and managing their Copyright.

2. Trade marks are a sign (badge of origin) which can distinguish your goods and services from those of your competitors (you may refer to your trade mark as your "brand"). It can be for example words, logos or a combination of both.
