ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A FLEXIBLE FRANCHISE, THAT CAN BE STARTED FROM YOUR DESK AT HOME? At eDivert we offer administrative, marketing and call handling services to other businesses. eDivert and its franchise network deliver high quality Business Support services to companies in every sector. Our services include:
Unlike a traditional franchise, you don’t buy a geographical area. Instead we help you specialise in the services that you enjoy, which you can then deliver UK-wide.
As part of the eDivert network, you will have the opportunity to take work on from other franchisees and from head office, which allows you to grow your business 3x faster than when you start on your own.
Once you get too busy yourself, you can outsource some of your work to other franchisees within the network, knowing that they have received the same training as you have, and share the same values. We also have access to a large team that can help you scale up your business if that’s your ambition.
In the eDivert network, franchisees are completely independent, but at the same time truly work together. This means you can take on bigger projects and work that fall outside of your available hours. It means you can earn more than if you were on your own. Being part of our eDivert franchise network means there is a team in the background to help you with overflow work, with ongoing support from Head Office. It offers THE SOLUTION to a perfect work life balance.
As a business, we are passionate about our people – it is what makes us so unique! Our company structure guarantees that you will have a strong team ready to support you in any situation.
Most of our franchisees get an opportunity to do some work for head office or another franchisee in the first few months.
We offer regular online team meetings, so you get an opportunity to build relationships with the other franchisees in the network.
We currently have a variety of franchisees on board, some work full-time in their business, but most of them part-time.
We welcome franchisees from a variety of professional and educational backgrounds, ensuring that eDivert has the widest skill set on offer to business communities around the UK.
Previous administrative, customer service, sales or marketing experience is helpful, but most importantly, you will need a can-do attitude! We are looking for individuals with drive, dedication, passion and an eagerness to learn.
Our franchise opportunity is ideal for mothers who would like a flexible work solution to fit around their children.
You must be highly organised, efficient and professional with a sense of urgency and tenacity.
Don’t worry if you have not had previous experience in running your own business. We provide you with everything you need and need to know in the online training. The training can be completed in your own time.
In addition, we offer regular virtual training sessions via webinar, so you can keep on developing your skillset.
Our franchisees are all self-motivated and resourceful, approachable and natural networkers.
At eDivert we offer 3 franchise packages: Our Basic package at £7,500+VAT, the Accelerator Package at £9,500+VAT and the Elite Package at £12,500 + VAT. Whereas the Basic package includes the basics to start your own eDivert business, our Accelerator and Elite Packages include more tools, including an automated marketing system and a set of unique contacts, which will help you grow your business a lot quicker in the first 3 years. The Elite package further includes more contacts, your own website and business mentoring.
The franchise term for the package is for 5 years and can be renewed at no additional fee.
At eDivert we like to keep things simple. We only ask our franchisees to pay one monthly royalty fee for the ongoing support and brand exposure that we offer. There are no other hidden charges. All franchisees pay a monthly management fee of 10% of their monthly turnover or a minimum charge of £180+VAT, whichever one is higher.
These funds are re-invested in marketing for the franchise network and development of training and workshops for the franchisees. Our franchise offer is fully flexible and scalable, so you can adjust the amount of time spent on your business as and when your situation changes.
Earning potential will vary depending on the amount of time you have to devote to your business and the business model you choose. As an example, with 20 chargeable hours per week, you could turnover £30,000 per year if you work on your own, or the sky is the limit if you work full-time and build up a business where you either outsource to other franchisees or take on staff.
Our Training and Support are second to none and is provided remotely through our online training system and interactive webinars. So you won’t have to worry about additional costs for travel or overnight stays.
In the training we provide you with all the information from starting your business, to what marketing strategy to use to grow your business, how to get customers and how to deliver the services.
We also go in more depth into how to close a sale with a potential customer and how to handle difficult situations. After the training, you continue to have easy access to head office for any support you may require.
We also supply monthly marketing materials, training videos, help with business planning, an annual conference and ongoing training.
Why did you choose to buy into an eDivert franchise?
In 2017 I started out trying to build my own VA business. I applied for a Freelancer position with Kim to cover some of her work whilst she went on holiday. Building my own business with no Brand, Website, Marketing Collateral, Pricing Structure or Policies and Procedures was tough. I really enjoyed working with Kim, I liked the way she did things and when she mentioned the eDivert Franchise Opportunity – it was a no brainer of a decision.
What has the eDivert franchise offered you until now?
Confidence, the strength of an existing Brand, the support of Kim – so I am not doing this on my own! More importantly, a source of income in the early days by taking on Head Office work.
Why would you recommend the eDivert franchise to others?
The initial buy in cost is significantly lower than any other VA Franchise. Kim is incredibly supportive and is an incredibly successful Business Woman. The brand and the website and the way we “do business” impresses people!
What has been your biggest achievement until now as an eDivert franchisee?
I have 2! Paying back my investment inside of 6 months and getting to capacity within 8 months.
How do you find the work life balance as an eDivert franchisee?
It is fantastic! I have a little boy who is 5, so I only work within school hours.
