Why your own blinds business?

The Blinds Network Company: A business owner measuring a window space to fit blinds in a clients property

There are really two parts to the answer. “Why set-up your own business?” and “why set up a blinds business?” If you often wish you could get a new job with good prospects, proper rewards and the freedom to do things your own way then we may have the answer. If you also want to use your own abilities and develop them more then we have the answer to that too! Your best bet may be to become your own boss running your own business, maybe just self-employed or even running your own company.

But how do you set up your own business? How do you avoid the problems of setting up your own business? Running your own business can be very rewarding once it’s up and running and most people who have their own businesses say they would never want to go back to being an employee. However, if you’ve never run your own business before you would be wise to get help and it’s often easier if you use a half-way house such as buying a franchise or joining buyers group or support organisation for the type of business you are starting. But, again, why decide to set up your own blinds business? Running your own local blinds business has broad appeal.

There are lots of business out there and it doesn’t stop just because there is a slow down in the economy. You are selling a product that’s easy, clean and safe to supply and fit. Customers take a lot of interest in making their homes nicer and are prepared to spend money with you to do so. The physical side of installations provides light exercise but is simple, safe and satisfying. You can earn good money and work flexible hours controlling your own appointments diary, time off etc. Indeed, you have high earnings potential in this kind of owner-managed business.

And if you want the best way to set up and run your own blinds business the simplest an safest way is to be part of The Blinds Company’s Business Partnership

Why we are not a franchise

If you are thinking of buying a franchise then you might like to consider being a Business Partner with the Blinds Network Company instead. We have nothing against franchises, indeed if you become a Business Partner with us you will gain key benefits you normally get from a good franchise opportunity. You’ll get fully supported advice and guidance how to set up your own business and your own blinds business in particular. You’ll have access to expert support and guidance much of it specialised e.g. how to market and sell blind and how best to fit them. But we are not a franchise because we wanted to offer a more flexible and economical alternative to individuals who wanted real freedom to run their own business in their own way instead of being in a straightjacket. We advise but you chose how you want to do things. We credit you with enough sense to adopt and adapt good advice and not to do things different just to be contrary. Overall, it keeps things simple and straightforward for you and us which also keeps down the costs and enables all of us to concentrate on the things that help bring in the business and increase earnings. So here you have franchise opportunities and the advantages of a blinds franchise business without any of the usual drawbacks.

Beating redundancy

Have you been made redundant or are you under the threat of redundancy? Redundancy itself or the threat of redundancy is often a worrying and demoralising experience but it can also create an opportunity to make a career transition and even to set up your own business. Fighting your way through the whole process, even with the help of independent advice, can drag you down so being able to assert your own independence by starting your own business and becoming your own boss can be very therapeutic! You may qualify for a redundancy payment which leaves the question of how best to spend your redundancy pay? A wise way to spend some of your redundancy pay could be investing in creating your own blinds business with the help and support of The Blinds Network Company. Compared with many other alternatives such as starting from scratch or buying an expensive franchise this is a straightforward business representing great values for money if you want to set up your own business fast for the first time. Outplacement companies may offer useful advice and guidance for finding a new job but it’s probably down to you if you want to set up on your own. As a Blinds Network Company partner you get step by step help the whole way. For full details see The Blinds Company’s Business Partnership

What areas are currently available?

You can establish and develop your own blinds business within a relatively small catchment area because overall demand is quite high. If you think about it there are thousands of houses not far from where you live who will be buying blinds in the next year. Some will be buying new blinds for the first time and many will be buying replacements. You only have to sell a small number of blinds every week to make a very good living – and we show you how.

If you want to set up your won blinds business near to where you live then you need to reserve your own area as soon as you know which area you want because as one of our Business Partners you will hold an exclusive territory. If your area has gone then we can probably find you another area not too far away. The best way to do this is to contact us directly by email or phone on our contact page. If you have established your blinds business you may wish to expand by taking over adjacent areas if they remain available.

Our network of Business Partners work together in a co-operative way so even if the adjacent area has gone you may benefit from joint marketing and mutual cover for holidays and sickness.
