Why Image360 Franchise?
Creating a Win-Win. Multiple Revenue Streams For You & Your Community
Nobody wakes up & thinks, “Today I want to open a sign shop” But they should. Although it’s not what most people thought they would end up doing, owning a sign franchise with Image360 is an extremely rewarding opportunity for the right kind of person. If you want to own a business where you interact with other successful business owners, and also enjoy a healthy quality of life for you and your family then Image360 might be for you.
Broad Menu of Services
Every Image360 sign franchise is a full-spectrum provider of visual communications, unlike some sign shops with a very limited menu of services. Even if you do not have the physical capability to provide every signage solution in-house, our professional support staff and unique Product Services Group will handle items such as vendor research, Request for Proposals-RFP’s and relationship/project management to help you live our brand promise — to be a single, responsible source for all signage, graphics and display solutions.
Great Work-Life Balance
Image360 sign franchises are true B2B businesses. Core business hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30am – 5:30pm. There’s no boss keeping you until well past the kids’ bedtime, no canceling weekend trips to go into work, and no clients calling at all hours. Life is too short to spend every waking hour at work.
Network with Other Business Owners
Quality of life is directly impacted by the company you keep. When you own an Image360 sign franchise, you spend your days working closely with other motivated, successful business owners. Other business owners are not just clients; they quickly become your ally and someone who will rely on you for all of their visual communications needs. It’s truly a relationship oriented business model.
Scalable Business Model
Over 95% of our franchisees are single-unit owners. Why? As an Image360 sign franchise owner, you’re not bound by any specific radius. You can do business locally, regionally, or all the way across the country. You determine how much you want to grow. Because technology is at the core of our model there is no limitation to go where you can seek opportunity.
IDEAL FRANCHISEE CANDIDATE
No signage or business experience is required. Most owners are:
You should genuinely enjoy meeting the new people you’ll encounter at your Image360 Center, on sales calls, in service clubs, as a volunteer or even when waiting in line at the grocery store.
- PROBLEM SOLVERS
Business owners, marketers, facility managers and event planners will come to you seeking better ways to promote, inform or direct. You’ll work with them to identify their needs, discuss their options for graphics, signage and display, and then you’ll point them toward the best solutions.
- ATTENTIVE TO DETAIL
Meeting a prospect and making a sale is just the start of the process. Once you’ve gained an order, you’ll need to shepherd it through design, production, delivery or installation and, of course, billing.
While no Image360 Center owner has to be an expert on every aspect of their Center’s operation, you’ll need to gain a working familiarity with all facets of your business.
To maintain a steady stream of revenue for your Image360 Center, you’ll need to pursue new prospects and follow up with old clients regularly to check on new opportunities, provide cost estimates and solicit orders. Your Image360 website and the digital marketing techniques we assist you with are key.
“I spent a lot of time reviewing business and franchise models when choosing Image360. While many of them seemed interesting, none appeared to provide the support that I perceived we would get from Alliance Franchise Brands Sign and Graphics Division. After having “done” the business for a while, I can safely say that my perceptions were definitely reality. Whether it’s through job leads, material and process support, training, or business strategy, the team at Alliance Franchise Brands has supported us every step of the way as we have grown our business.”
“The support I get as an Image360 franchise is top notch. The corporate staff at SGO is always responsive and ready to assist with anything we need help with. The marketing services alone are worth every cent I pay in royalties, and the equipment evaluations and recommendations, as well as the negotiated vendor pricing are merely gravy. I have owned a franchise in a different industry and know from experience that the franchisor-franchisee relationship can be contentious, but that is not the case with my Image360 franchise. I consider the headquarters staff to be an integral part of my team.”
“When my family and I made the decision to retire from the military we looked at a lot of business opportunities and joint venture projects. Friends recommended that we reach out to the franchise team at Image360 and the rest is history. From the initial phone call, all the way through to our grand opening in 2013, the entire staff at Image360 have been outstanding in every way. Owning a small business is hard work and takes dedication but it feels really good knowing that I have a group of seasoned professionals in my court and that help is a phone call away.”
