Are you ready for back-to-school or back-to-work season? Hard to
believe it’s September! So let’s talk about business growth strategies for autumn.
As you know, with September comes opportunity – lots of it. Everyone
is back in the office, and they’re working on making their customers
happy and grow their business. And those two things go hand in hand.
You need happy customers to be successful, and right now is the
perfect time to give some thought to how to make that happen:
1) Provide excellent service (and products)
Of course, your products and services have to be excellent. You can’t
afford glitches, like malfunctioning printers and running out of ink,
paper, or your invoice forms. So make sure you’re well-stocked.
You also need to let your team members focus on their priorities.
They’ll appreciate it if you don’t add needless busy work on top of what
they have to do to get their jobs done.
One of the things you can easily avoid is to have them call around
to find the best deals on office supplies. If you’re not sure where to
shop, I’d like to invite you to take us up on the Crane Challenge:
We’ll let you know if you’re getting the best prices or if we can beat
the prices of your “other” suppliers. Just call us on 0800 007 5566

2) Business Growth Strategies for Autumn… thinking about Christmas…
Yes, really! Letting your customers and clients know how much
you appreciate them goes a long way towards building your long-term
relationship with them. You can do that by sending them personalised
cards and gifts for Christmas.
And what about sending the same to key prospects? It gives them a
preview on how you’ll treat them once they’re customers…
When it comes to business growth strategies for autumn, this is ideal.
Start by making a list of people to include, sorted by categories.
And then think about the kinds of cards or gifts you want. We’ll
have more information coming up in the next few weeks. In the
meantime, if you have questions, we’ll always be happy to help
on 0800 007 5566 (or on our Live Chat).
3) Consider adding a new “sideline” business
If you’ve been thinking about starting a new business or a sideline
business, you’ll find that right now is also the perfect time to get
started with a franchise.
Of course not any franchise. Now is not the best time to start an
ice cream shop. But when it comes to our Crane Franchise, the
perfect time is right now – or very soon – for the very reasons I mentioned
a) Great time for extra sales
As I just said, the pre-Christmas season is coming up soon, and
business owners are looking for branded gifts and cards, plus other
This means lots of extra sales right off the bat for you!
b) Quick start-up gets you ready in time
With Crane Franchise, you can get started very quickly and be ready for
business right on time to make the most of it.
c) Big savings on the franchise fee
Right now, as part of our special “back to work” promotion, you can
get your new franchise for a much lower investment than usual, and
with extra start-up support as well.
Just contact us at 0800 007 5566 and ask to speak to our franchise
sales team to find out more. After all, a new franchise could be the perfect part of your business growth strategies for autumn.
One more thing… What if YOU aren’t looking for a new franchise, but someone you know is thinking about it? We appreciate referrals and will reward you generously for putting us in touch with a successful candidate.
