What Our Franchisees Are Saying

Wondering whether to start a coupon business? Money Mailer franchisees share why their answer was yes

“What I liked about Money Mailer the most was that I knew that my clients were going to get a good response. By putting advertising in the mail, I knew that people were going to have to open it. People go to their mailbox every single day, so it was a good way for me to get the messages of my local businesses into the hands of people…Knowing what I know now about running a franchise, running a business and ultimately owning Money Mailer, the only thing that I would do differently is purchase it a lot earlier than I did.”
– Janet Galati, Chain O’ Lakes, IL

“There were a handful of things I really, really needed to have before I purchased a franchise: I had to be able to buy it for less than $100,000, make what I wanted, it had to be a proven solution where other people were already successful, I wanted to work out of my own home for low overhead and I wanted to not have to hire any other people. None of the other opportunities I looked at ever met that criteria… I really looked long and hard, and no one besides Money Mailer could offer me what I was looking for.”
– Ray Gedert, South Bay, CA

“We deliver local advertising to a hyper-local market. I don’t do any convincing. I have a conversation. My job is organized friendship. It is one business owner talking to another. I’m not selling anything. Together, we identify what their goals are and based on what those are, I provide solutions.”
– Jane Massey, St. Louis

“If you really want to get someone’s attention, write them a note. Don’t write an email or send a text, write them a note. Social media, email campaigns and text messages can be wonderful to build brand awareness, but we are all so inundated with all of that information that we just gloss over it, we don’t see it anymore. If you really want to drive something home, a piece of paper or card has much better staying power, and that physical document has much more impact.”
– Rob Chana, Clarendon Hills, IL

You control your destiny, you can control when you’re going to work, how you’re going to work and who you’re going to work with. This is who you are. The brand is a strong brand, and the system is a strong system.”
– Paul Williams, Bethlehem, PA

“Being my own boss is very important to me, and I love the flexibility it offers me. When I first bought Money Mailer, my wife, Kate, and I had just gotten married, and right after I bought the business we got pregnant with Leela. After she was born, I took three or four months off; I barely worked. My daughter meant everything to me. Same with my son, Ray. I took a few months off when he was born. Being a father is what comes first to me. Money Mailer allows me to be there for them.”
– Peelu Shivaraju, Grand Rapids, MI

“Digital is not as effective as people want to believe. In many ways it’s like a phone book. You’ve got to think up something and go looking for it. Direct mail is in the demand creation business. We can drop an idea into your head. And unlike TV, billboards or the internet, people are choosing to stop their day and look at the advertising offered by Money Mailer.”
– Dave Hart, Delaware
