The Practical Guide for Transforming Your Successful Side Hustle into A Company that Runs With or Without you

The Franchise Prototype

When building a company your objective goal is to build a well-oiled machine that runs without you having to work in it.

Unfortunately for most entrepreneurs, in order for their company to grow, they have to spend countless hours away from their families and loved ones and the things they love to do.

If this is you and you no longer want to operate in business like this then you need to take on the mindset of someone who owns a franchise.

We call this the franchise prototype and it’s designed to help business owners make more money in less time, stress free.

Whether you’re a new business owner or seasoned 6-figure earner, if your business requires you to be involved, there is a ceiling to your profit growth.

There are 7 specific areas you need to consider in your franchise prototype process:

  • Primary Aim
  • Strategic Objectives
  • Organizational Strategy
  • Management Strategy
  • People Strategy
  • Marketing Strategy
  • Systems Strategy

These 7 areas will fine tune your plan for the ultimate level of success. In this lesson we are going to cover the first three areas.

  1. Primary Objectives
  2. Strategic Objectives and
  3. Organizational Strategy

A Story of Hope

“Babe, what are we going to do? You have to do something.”

These were the words of my pregnant wife who was so sick during her pregnancy that she couldn’t work.

I was working in corporate America as a senior business analyst and was operating at a high level with the potential to climb the corporate ladder.

But there was a catch.

I had no desire for the office politics, fake smiles, favors, and long nights in the office away from my family.

I just wanted an increase in income.

Not just any type of increase in income because I could have gone to a competitor company for a higher salary.

I wanted an income I could control. One I could scale to the moon if I wanted to.

This was the birth of Digital Business Growth, a company that built websites.

When I first started, I knew I wanted to build a company. However, the lures of social media posts, ads, inspirational videos along with the increasing need to pay debt and expenses led me to believe I could skip the process and be okay.

This by far was one of the biggest mistakes I’ve made in business.

My primary objectives, strategic objectives, and organizational strategy was an afterthought to acquiring my next customer.

Sound familiar?

If understood and applied the 3 areas of business I’m going to share with you below will transform your business this year.

Area 1: The Primary Objective

It’s essential when developing your business, you are setting goals and see a clear vision for the future. Your vision needs to go beyond the business and you need to think about what you want out of life.

What do you dream about?

How do you see your success unfolding?

What lifestyle do you desire?

Knowing and understanding these things will give you the momentum to get started and the mental endurance to see it through to the finish.

Take a minute to write them down and tape to your desk for a constant reminder of what you’re aiming for.

Area 2: Strategic Objectives

Strategic objectives are essential in taking your business from surviving to thriving.

All of these objectives should offer solutions for how to get to your primary objective.

There are many things you can use to set strategic objectives, but here are a couple of the most popular:

  1. Money: Setting monetary goals is a great, simple way to see how you are doing at any point in the game. It’s easy to measure and easy to find adjustments to help meet this goal.
  2. Worthy Opportunities: When considering partnerships and other business opportunities you need to think about whether or not they will help you reach your primary aim. Those that will are the best opportunities to seriously consider.

The key in setting standards and goals is not to limit you or stress yourself out. You need to find some quantifiable things you can use to measure your progress toward your primary aim. These are just two suggestions, but make sure no matter what you standards you set you are paying attention to the details, as these are one of the biggest keys to your success.

Area 3: Organizational Objectives

The strength of your organizational structure can make or break your business, so it’s important to take the time to put together a solid structure for your business to grow and scale so that the amount of profit you generate doesn’t require more of your time.

A company is typically organized around the roles and responsibilities that need to be taken care of on a daily basis and the personalities that need to fulfill those roles.

No matter what roles and responsibilities you’ve defined for your employees, you must always keep your personal primary aim separate from your company’s primary aim or mission statement.

Once you’ve identified the primary aim for your company it will be easy to set up a position structure that will work.

Don’t forget to put together position contracts. Your employees should sign a statement of their roles and responsibilities. This helps keep them clear for you, the employee and other employees/vendors or other individuals.

You can see how these areas all work together to build a solid structure on which to build your business. If you need help defining any of these areas, you can check out the resources, tools and speak with one of our fantastic coaches during your GUIDED TOUR.

While the areas mentioned above are not the “sexy” topic you’ll find on social media they are essential for long term business success.

It’s the difference between a having a side hustle and creating a company that will have an impact on generations to come whether you sell it or leave it as an inheritance.

Whatever you do, do not ignore these instructions if you desire to create a company that will help you achieve the lifestyle you truly desire.

Why is a Website Important for Your Business?

As holidays start rolling around, businesses all around start launching the respective holiday campaigns. While campaigns can be launched on both the website as well as on the social media channels, having relevant online presence on the website is regarded as more crucial. This is because it is through your website that customers identify & understand your brand and its objectives.

This is wherein the role of holiday marketing comes in. If you wish to make the most of the holiday season to boost profits for your online store, here are some of the important ways in which holiday marketing on your website can benefit your business:

1.) Create a Sense of Urgency: The holidays tend to be the finite time. They are mostly known to end with New Year. As such, people out there are not only aiming to complete shopping before the finite dates of discounted shopping, but they are also aimed at getting the shopping done before others.

When the customers are aware of the fact that there are just a fixed number of days, weeks, or even minutes before the campaign would end, they are more likely to act instantly and make the purchase.

There are endless opportunities when it comes to utilizing the concept of holiday marketing during the festive season. You should aim at reminding the customers the overall consequences of not purchasing.

2.) Reward Your Loyal Customers & Followers: The holiday season is regarded as the season of gifting and showing appreciation for each other. You can get on the given holiday train by thanking all your loyal customers through exclusive deals or offers. This will help your loyal customers to stay loyal. This implies that they will continue shopping from your website.

3.) Form and Nurture Relationships with Customers: Sometimes, during the entire span of the year, it becomes a difficult task to connect with the potential customers. However, during the holiday shopping season, you can show that you are not just a typical company and that you are not distinct from the customers.

In some cases, it would imply depicting life during the holidays to correlate with your campaign.

The more real your marketing campaign appears, the greater connection you are going to develop with the end customers.

4.) Promote Emotions: Most people out there tend to associate the holiday season with emotions of happiness & anticipation. This implies that when you make use of the happy theme to represent the products & services on your website, people are going to experience positive emotions while going through them.

This serves to be an easy marketing strategy for your brand during the holiday season.

5.) Commit to Giving to a Worthy Cause: Somewhere between cooking delicious turkey during November and making the countdown to midnight during the New Year’s Eve, all hearts out there appear a little softer. In the state of heightened emotions, it serves to be a great opportunity to ensure that your brand is doing some good in the community.

A great instance of the same can be partnering with some local organization for a noble cause.

When you are implementing it right and in noble spirits, the given altruism is not only going to feel good, but it will also help in increasing your overall sales. At the same time, it can also help in building your brand image as people are going to associate your brand to be generous and giving.
