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 your $87,000 franchise fee up front (we work with several independent funding organizations), we have also created an amazing training, support and financial incentive program that is designed to ease your transition from employment to ownership. It directs you on your road to success. With our power launch system, you’ll start with a week of intensive classroom training at Money Mailer University, followed by an 8-week onboarding program, including three weeks in your territory with your own dedicated field-based Regional Sales Manager. An internal Customer Service Organization handles much of the backend processes, including ad creation and digital placement.

With your very first mailing, you’ll start receiving monthly payments, to help with your transition from employment to ownership.

We also cover all your operating expenses for your first six mailings plus additional incentives, working capital subsidies and no royalties for the first two years in business. To further help 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 care expert to make sure every mailing cycle runs smoothly, as well as a dedicated art center coordinator who works with a team of graphic designers to create compelling ads and offers that create monthly repeat business.
