What Are My Startup Costs?

FDD reveals low startup costs thanks to low overhead and our financial incentives

One of the advantages of opening a Money Mailer home-based B2B marketing franchise is that very little overhead is required, which means your startup costs may be more accessible than you think. Another advantage is that we’ll cover a significant portion of your production costs for your first six mailings in business.

How we make it easier to start your own business

While we do require that you pay an upfront franchise fee of $59,900 ($49,900 if you have an advertising sales background), we do work with several independent funding organizations to assist you with your financial needs.  We have also created an amazing training, support and financial incentive program called “Speed Launch” which is designed to get your business up-and-running quickly and effectively.  With our Speed Launch system, you’ll receive 9-weeks of in-field training that will immerse you in your local territory.  You’re supported by a dedicated, field-based Regional Sales Manager (RSM) – a customer acquisition expert!.  Your RSM helps you “master” the model and will assist you in acquiring a solid base of repeat clients.  An internal customer service team handles the back-end processes, including ad creation and digital placement.

You’ll receive up to $50,000 in sales bonuses over the first 10-months of operation!

Franchisees earn a sales bonus that starts at $200 per ad sold and caps out at $50,000 paid over the first 10-months of operation.  And that’s JUST the bonus payout!  You’ll also keep 100% of the profits of all ads sold and no royalties will be assessed for the first two years in business. To further cement your success with our franchise, your Regional Sales Manager will be held personally accountable for your performance for the entire term of your franchise agreement. You also have a dedicated, internal Customer Service Representative to make sure every mailing cycle runs smoothly.  You’re also supported with a team of graphic designers who will create compelling ads and offers that create monthly repeat business.

We provide lead generation support!

We know that building your book of business is a priority as a new franchise owner so we’re committed to helping you get started.  As part of our Speed Launch program, we provide you with prospects!  A database of qualified contacts will be uploaded into your cloud-based CRM prospecting system for “instant” connection!  To access these prospects, we will provide a one-year, premium subscription to Salesgenie, a call-verified business lead source to help you laser-target decision makers.  In addition, you’ll receive over 250 hours of paid telemarketing and appointment setting support to help you reach those prospects.  We will set appointments on your behalf so that all you need to do is close!

While our our focus is local, neighborhood business, you’ll also have the opportunity to capture large regional chains.  To help you acquire more of these chains, a large account resource team is in place to help you prepare account-specific data analytics, build effective spec artwork, create custom mapping and generate a powerful presentation to assist you with your sales call.  We make the process easy for you so that you can spend less time on the details and more time with your clients.
