eDivert offers a unique franchise opportunity, which can be started from your home office. 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.
In the eDivert network, franchisees are completely independent, but at the same time truly work together, 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.
After all, our success starts from yours! On average, new franchisees like to start with 10 hours of work a week from Head Office to get their business going.
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 PA, 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 as a virtual assistant, our personal assistants are far more than this, and full training is provided.
Our franchisees are all self-motivated and resourceful, approachable and natural networkers.
New franchisees will not pay a royalty fee the first 3 months. Then on a monthly basis, franchisees pay £150+VAT, or a 10% royalty fee depending on their turnover. 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.
Our Training and Support are second to none and is provided remotely through 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, 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 customers. After the training, you continue to have easy access to head office and the other franchisees 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.
