For potential franchisees
Andrew says, “Be authentic! When meeting with other professionals or potential clients, just be yourself and don’t hesitate to show your passion for the industry and what drives you. It will set you aside from other providers, especially the larger national organisations.”
“People will gravitate to your business because it is locally owned.”
“Always go above and beyond for your clients, word travels fast, and most of my referrals have come from word of mouth and support coordinators pushing our service. We are yet to do any local marketing or advertising and have successfully built a business relying on word of mouth marketing.”
Homecare during the COVID-19 crisis
Home Caring has doubled the number of hours of service from March 1 to the end of July, and are recruiting franchisees to be able to cope with the extra demand.
“We are frightened witnessing what was happening overseas and how it was affecting people, especially the elderly. We knew it wasn’t a case of it was going to hit Australia, but when,” says Andrew.
“My business has ended up growing by 20 per cent as we have begun supporting people who are being discharged early from hospitals to free up hospital beds and continue their care at home.”
“We’re supporting our staff by reducing all non-essential shifts and supplied our most vulnerable clients with as much personal protective equipment (PPE) Available. We also implemented working from home and ceased home visits from our case managers before being instructed to by the government,” explains Andrew.
