Platinum Business Partners

Platinum Business Partners, the UK’s number one ecommerce franchise.

A flexible online business - work where you want, when you want and earn an income that suits you.

Follow our tried, tested and proven system to create your own ecommerce brand with unlimited income potential.

Founded by one of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs, Steve Bolton, Platinum Business Partners is now considered the leading ecommerce training in the UK. Guiding you through the entire process of building, launching and growing a profitable and scalable ecommerce business.

As you’ll never have to create, handle, stock or ship these products yourself, there are no premises or staff required. Using the power of platforms like Amazon, become a global ecommerce entrepreneur selling a suite of perfectly-selected popular and profitable consumer products directly from your laptop.

How much you earn and how much time you commit to your business will be entirely up to you but you can expect to earn £2,000 to £4,000 per month net profit within the first 18 months of trading.

4 BIG reasons why an ecommerce business could be the perfect opportunity for you:

  • No office hours - you will have the flexibility to work from any location in the world - as long as you have an internet connection.
  • Unlimited income potential – your business is open 24/7 and keeps running when you sleep.
  • Less overhead and financial commitment to start – make money without huge start-up costs.
  • Follow your passion - create a brand that fits in with your hobbies and interests.

When you join Platinum Business Partners, you will get:

  • A simple, easy-to-access home-based model to replicate within your very own ecommerce brand.
  • A fast track to success – our Directors, coaches and mentors all have their own successful and highly profitable online businesses and you’ll learn from them.
  • Great returns and long-term growth – following our system you will have the opportunity to achieve sales and profits within months and a growing income for years.
  • Enjoy low startup costs - a £30,000 investment will secure you your training AND the development and stock of your first 3 - 4 products.
  • 600 hours of online training.
  • Regular in person workshops and bootcamps.
  • 1 to 1 mentoring.
  • Complete control – ideal balance of income and time that suits you.
  • Access to global experts in ecommerce.
  • A family-friendly business – one family member can join with you for no extra cost.
  • Private friendly Facebook community.

And you’re growing a sellable asset – we’ll help you sell your brand or business for a profit if you decide it’s time to make some capital gains.

Currently 99% of those running their own online business aren’t selling enough products to grow profitably. Many who go into ecommerce never even get their first product live. With Platinum, over half launch their brand within 6 months and 84% hit a profit in the first 12 months.

Mark Greening, Platinum Business Partners franchisee

Motivated by wanting to find a way to generate an income that didn’t require all of his time, Mark Greening started looking at new business opportunities. He was about to start building a buy-to-let property portfolio, but still found himself with time on his hands. The problem was, he didn’t know exactly what he was looking for. When he discovered Platinum Business Partners (PBP), he realised that was it.

What were you looking for in a new business opportunity?

I’ve had businesses before in the retail space, but the return was slow and it took an awful lot of work to generate any income. But my key motivation was not necessarily financial, it was more about time. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind a hard day’s work, but I don’t want to be doing 60 hour weeks or spending all of it away from home.

Why did you decide to join Platinum Business Partners?

I’m a big believer in learning from others who have already been successful in the same sector or market and I understand franchising – you can go from knowing nothing to producing good returns relatively quickly. So, the fact that Platinum Business Partners was a franchise, in a sector I knew something about and providing me with a model I could follow without taking up all of my time was perfect.

What part has been the most enjoyable for you?

I’ve just enjoyed it all. I’d always enjoyed business generally before, but I always struggled because I lacked a passion for it. It was all about doing well and making money. I remember looking at Platinum Business Partners and knew that was what I wanted. Everyone trips over an opportunity that will change their life, but instead of dusting myself off and walking on, I stayed put.

Bryan Black

So what has Platinum Business Partners taught Bryan?

Before joining, Bryan had no idea what products to sell and how to even research viable products that customers would want to buy online in numbers that would give him the additional income he wanted. The online and offline training, coupled with one-to-one mentoring, introduced Bryan to a formula for product selection success.

Bryan added: “I didn’t know where to start initially as I didn’t have a particularly strong interest in any products beforehand. However, I looked at all of the categories that we were taught would work and narrowed it down to Sports and Outdoors. By simply following the system and the training, we came up with two product concepts and put in my first order at the end of June.”

By September, Bryan had a folding shovel and mess kit containing portable pots and pans that were perfect for campers available to buy in Amazon.

The folding shovel has been a roaring success for Bryan, with more than 2,000 units sold to date and generating a 20% net profit. The mess kit is also doing well, consistently selling between five and seven units a day on average.

Bryan is now focussing on his two new products – marshmallow sticks and a lightweight double hammock – and improving his marketing strategies by outsourcing product listing optimisation and taking advantage of Google AdWords mentoring within Platinum Business Partners.
