It’s Not Too Late to Make a Change in 2017

March 7, 2017

They say most New Year’s resolutions are abandoned by March, but that doesn’t have to be the case. There are still ten months left in 2017 to recapture the energy you had on January 1st and follow through on those resolutions. I’ve read that the key to successful New Year’s resolutions, like any change, is to start small. Begin the research process, know your finances, understand your strengths and weaknesses, and begin to narrow your focus. These steps will help you get ready for when it is time to make a decision.

If making the move to be your own boss was one of your goals, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re reading this blog, you’re doing your research and learning more about the process and opportunities out there.

Whether you are just starting to explore the franchise world or you’ve been searching for the right business for a while, Pool Scouts is an opportunity worth exploring, and now is a great time to take the first steps. Check out 5 reasons you won’t be able to resist taking a deeper dive into the Pool Scouts business opportunity!

The Market Continues to Grow

The number of pools within the US continues to grow and many of the existing pools are aging and need proper upkeep. Homeowners are looking more and more to protect their investment and keep their pool swim-ready. Additionally, the pool industry continues to innovoate. Automated systems and variable speed pumps offer pool owners high-tech equipment that requires maintenance from trained and educated technicians.

Comprehensive Training
Pool Scouts franchise Training

Pool Scouts offers a comprehensive training that educates franchisees on both the technical side of pool care as well as the business aspect. During your time at training you have the opportunity to experience hands-on training around pools as wells the backend administrative tasks. The end goal is for franchisees to be  comfortable and confident when they launch their business.

The Phones Will Be Ringing

Once a Pool Scouts franchisee completes training and fulfills any necessary state licensing, he or she is free to begin marketing efforts to recruit customers for their recurring business that will begin in the early spring. Franchisees have the opportunity to take advantage of the down time of our off-season to research local and grassroots marketing opportunities. Things like showcasing the vibrant, bold Pool Scouts van in a spring parade or sponsoring local sports teams will begin to build brand visibility and get community residents familiar with the new local business in town, so they are more likely to become customers when the time comes they need help with their pool!

This business is characterized by a low investment, including the lowest franchise fee in the industry!  When coupled with the service model, Pool Scouts offers ongoing professional pool cleaning services that keep customers coming back week after week or month after month, driving a high lifetime value per customer.

It is Time to Follow Through on Your Resolutions

Each year, we make resolutions that and don’t stick to them. You’ve seen it, in January the gym is packed, but by the end of March the crowd has dispersed. Make 2017 the year you follow through with your resolutions. Get informed, and take steps to meet your goals…it’s never too late!
