Price Reduced For Quick Sale - Direct Marketing
Direct Marketing Business with Established Clients/Revenue
• Are you looking for an opportunity to run your own business, but don’t want to start from scratch?
• Do you have an outgoing personality and enjoy working peer to peer with local business owners to help them attract new customers and grow their business?
• Would you like to leverage the support of a 35 year old icon in the Direct Mail industry without having to pay the whole franchise fee?
If this sounds interesting to you, then my dilemma may be your opportunity. Due to issues unrelated to this business, I must sell my operation. I am looking for a buyer who truly wants to take advantage of a great opportunity to take my business, which is currently covering all expenses and producing a small profit, and grow it to its full potential. Usually, the hardest part about starting a new business is getting the ball rolling and covering the fixed costs. In this case, I’m giving you a head start!
I bought into this national franchise and launched my business in May, 2014 and now have approximately 20 clients in Gaston County. I work with each of the clients to develop a direct mail campaign (which also includes website and phone app ad placement) which lasts between four and twelve months and these campaigns generate monthly revenue for my business. The client and I put together the rough ideas for the campaign, and then I turn it over to the franchisor. The franchisor handles the design, print, insertion, shipping, mailing and postage for the campaign, which allows me to concentrate on servicing my existing clients and acquiring new ones!
There is lots of opportunity for growth. This business is currently operating in the Belmont and Gastonia areas and the plans call for expanding to open the Mount Holly area as well as either the Lincolnton or the Lake Wylie area.
No direct mail experience is necessary, but a strong sales background is a plus. Full training will be provided at corporate headquarters by the franchisor and I will work with you through a mutually agreeable transition period.
Please note, the Gross Income and Cash Flow numbers are based on October, 2014 sales, annualized. I did this because this most accurately portrays the current state of the business. Also, please note, these numbers include covering all fixed costs. Any sales beyond the current levels generate an approximate gross profit margin of 60%. Upon your inquiry, I will be happy to share all financials and answer any questions.
If you are outgoing, love working with other business owners and looking for a unique opportunity to acquire a national franchise without paying the full franchise price, please complete and send the information request form. I will then send you a non-disclosure agreement. Upon receiving the NDA back, I will be happy to arrange a call to discuss more details about the business.
Thank you for your interest.
