V.I.P. began in Adelaide in 1972 when during his sales rounds as a door-to-door Electrolux salesman; Bill offered his lawn mowing services to his customers. This proved a popular and successful decision. Before he knew it, Bill was making more money in one day mowing lawns than a lot of people were making during their normal working week.
This principle still applies today. The majority of V.I.P. franchisees are still making an above average income and some have built businesses that employ over 20 people, with a staggering turnover of more than $800,000 per annum. Some franchisees prefer to keep their operations small, working only a few days per week to supplement their income and to spend more time to with their family and generally doing the things they love in life.
Opportunities available in:
- Garden and lawn maintenance
- Home cleaning
- Commercial cleaning
HOW YOU MAKE YOUR MONEY
There are existing franchisees earning six figure incomes, and some who just work a few days a week but who are able to support the lifestyle they want to lead. It just depends on what you want your business to become.
V.I.P. Franchisees provide a wide range of services to their customers. We train you on how to provide the ‘V.I.P. treatment’ to customers.
V.I.P. franchisees pay a flat monthly fee to cover marketing, communication and admin costs. We do not charge commission or a per lead fee, there is therefore an incentive for each franchisee to work harder and smarter.
V.I.P. buys back jobs from franchisees, enabling them to consolidate their travelling time, and have more time making money. The buyback rate is 10x the weekly value of the job, so if you service a job once a week for $100, then V.I.P. pays you $1000 for the right to service that customer, conditions apply.
LIFE / WORK BALANCE
We believe your life should come before work - Life / Work Balance. As your own boss, you are free to work the hours that suit your lifestyle. This means that if you don't want to work weekends, you don't have to. If you want to work 60 hour weeks in order to earn even more money, you can. If you want to drive your kids to school, you are free to. You choose the hours which you wish to work and V.I.P. works with you to achieve your goals.
You are in charge of your own business; you quote the work to ensure you receive the price you want, you schedule your day to ensure you work the hours you want to work, and you collect your money from clients. V.I.P. is there to teach you how to manage these processes and support you through the stages of your business.
