With nearly 20 successful years under its belt, ActionCOACH has learned a thing or two about business coaching and franchising. The most essential thing is that you don’t have to be complicated to be effective.
ActionCOACH won Compare The Financial Market's Award for The UK's Best Business Opportunity and has long been the World's Number 1 Business Growth Franchise. By becoming a Franchise Partner with us you'll be invited to a world of knowledge, experience and an exclusive and guaranteed business model.
In 2013, ActionCOACH became the first recipient of Smith & Henderson's prestigious Five Star Franchisee Satisfaction Status, achieved this in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 becoming one of only four franchises to achieve 5-Star Franchisee Satisfaction Status for 5 years running; and in 2018, they have done it again, making it six times in six years!
Learn how to build your own £1 million a year business with ActionCOACH and make a real difference to thousands of people in your own exclusive area. You'll need to buy into ActionCOACH’s 14-point culture, raise a personal contribution of at least £18k (up to 80% finance is available unsecured) and impress our directors with your past successes, your desire to help others and an appetite for learning and growth.
ActionCOACH offers you the opportunity to join one of the fastest growing professions - business coaching.
Our Franchise Partners come from a range of industries from marketers to previous business owners but one thing they all have in common is the love of learning and helping people succeed.
You and your team will receive world class training with global, national and local support every step of the way and have access to over 3,500 strategies and tactics, guaranteed to make businesses successful, including your own!
You and your employee business coaches will work with business owners, helping them in several areas including; teaching them how to increase their profits, develop powerful systems and how to build a strong team. The results are not only a more profitable and sustainable business, but also a dramatically improved life for your client, making it a fantastically rewarding and fulfilling experience for anyone who invests in the ActionCOACH franchise.
Providing you meet the seven non-negotiable attributes, the investment for an ActionCOACH franchise is £69k and the minimum performance expected is you build your annual net sales to £1 million gradually by year 11. This is something we’ve had a UK franchise owner achieve through just their own personal clients, but you’ll probably choose to build your revenue with the help of employee business coaches, who we’ll train for you for just £6k per coach.
Your business is based on intellectual property and extra profits pay for the service for your business owner clients inside 6 to 12 months guaranteed, so you can expect to grow your net pre-tax profit margin to over 50%. However, the most fulfilling aspect is your team will teach local business owners 6 steps to a business that works so they don’t have to, meaning they get to enjoy their additional profits with their family and friends as much as they want to. We all understand kids spell ‘love’ T.I.M.E. so becoming the key driver in making that happen for your clients is priceless.
In return for your investment, you get your own exclusive territory and the opportunity to build your own £1 million a year revenue business
The franchise agreement includes:
PLUS… Two complementary bolt-on business opportunities may be available at massively discounted rates as you grow the services of your business:
ActionCOACH has secured favourable finance terms for the best candidates (for those who want to spread their investment over five years). Up to 80% finance is available, unsecured, at 8.5% interest rates and up to 1% set up fee; lending decisions will be made within 5 working days, subject to status and Ts & Cs.
ActionCOACH is in the business of business growth, has developed the best business growth system in the world and has the best team in the world to support business growth… you can use that system and draw on that very same team to grow your own commercial, profitable business which can work with you! Interestingly, most of our franchise partners can’t ever see themselves leaving, it’s just too fulfilling and enjoyable, but it’s nice to have the choice.
Have a think about local business owners you know... chances are they set up their business because they were an expert in that field. For example, most hairdressing businesses are owned by people who are great at cutting hair, but does that make the owner great at managing people, managing finances, sales, marketing, and systems? You're right, probably not. That's where ActionCOACH comes into play...
Over the last quarter of a century, ActionCOACH has become great at the business of business - finding out what works and what doesn't work in every kind of business. With more than 3,500 strategies and tactics to draw on, a trained and licensed business coach can confidently guarantee their business owner clients a return on investment from an ActionCOACH service inside 6 or 12 months.
Whether it's a fish and chip shop or a consultancy practice, there are only five ways the business can make more profit and ActionCOACH has developed dozens of strategies to grow each of those five ways... a model you’ll learn about at ActionCOACH’s Discovery Day.
You’ll have access to the right solution for each of the 10,000 active business owners in your exclusive territory. Whether it’s opening up an online-business education portal to a solopreneur for £39 per month, inviting an employing micro business owner to trial your group coaching club or £3,000 per month for your top of the range 1-2-1 mentoring programme, you’re fully equipped to help them take their business to the next level and your own!
If you think you have what it takes, the opportunity may still be there for you to start making a difference to the businesses and lives of business owners in your local community. Click below to find out if your preferred area is available.
Here Andy Hemming reveals his 'warts 'n' all' story of his decade with ActionCOACH, overcoming the 2008 recession and how he grew his coaching business to £60,000 income a month on just three days' work a fortnight, so he could free up time for his family.
"After four years working in Hamburg on the global strategy for Nivea, I needed to move back to the UK to support my family - both my parents were diagnosed with cancer and we had been told my eldest son had autism. It was during this time that I put my CV on a recruitment website.
"I was at The Mailbox in Birmingham buying a shirt for interviews, when I got a call from ActionCOACH. They had seen my CV online and asked me if I have ever heard of franchising or considered running my own business. In May 2007, I found myself in what should have been just a two-hour interview but as soon as I heard about ActionCOACH’s values and culture, I wanted to know more. Having spent so much time in the corporate world, the ideas of learning, self-development, support and team were really appealing.
"I’d given myself a 12-month target to earn enough from my ActionCOACH business to replace my old corporate salary and by mid 2008 I had created an income of £16,000 a month. And then life got interesting - the recession hit! My bankings dropped from £18,000 in October 2008 to just £7,000 in March 2009. With the few clients I had left, I allowed them to dictate my diary so my business wasn't running efficiently and I had less time to spend with my family - the complete opposite of where I wanted to be.”
With the recession making people look really hard at their finances, one of Andy's clients had an accountant asking what he was getting for his money. The accountant came to a one-to-one coaching session to see if this was a cost which could be cut. The accountant loved it and ended up introducing Andy to the Regional Director of HSBC who invited him to run seminars for his clients.
"It helped turn my business around and in 2011 I banked £210,000. Strategic alliances like this were clearly the way forward for me and are now simply part of the marketing toolkit for new franchise partners today with a full-time national partnerships team developing and maintaining key relationships.
"I decided to buy an office space and get super-focused on efficiency. My clients came to me for coaching and I tightened up my diary. In 2014, I banked £360,000 and, since then, I made time my obsession. On just 50 hours every four weeks, I generate over £500,000 a year.
"I know I need time on my own for me to be a great Dad, so I spend Monday to Wednesday every fortnight coaching and the other 10 days are pretty free for things like training for the London Marathon. I love being outside, especially in the mountains with my sons, Oliver and Alex, but have also climbed Kilimanjaro with friends. The sky is the limit and I plan to grow my business to £1million working just four days a fortnight and start to build a team of coaches."
