What are your business’s weaknesses?

Nobody can do everything.
That is, nobody can do everything alone.

Even the people you admire but also secretly hate, who seem like they’ve mastered multi-tasking and are bad at nothing are probably simply very good at delegating and outsourcing what needs to be done.

Remember that, the next time you’re feeling overwhelmed and wondering how you’re going to manage every facet of your business, such as increasing your marketing to training your employees to managing your cash flow – all the while trying to take things to the next level.

Which is why you may want to consider becoming part of a franchise. It is, after all, the ultimate strategy for getting everything done without having to do it all yourself. Like the old saying goes, being part of a franchise means going into business for yourself — but not by yourself.

Moran Family of Brands prides itself on being the ultimate partner, or if you prefer, an executive assistant. We’ve always understood that the franchise owners are business owners. You work for yourself. But Moran Family of Brands help franchise owners work better and more efficiently.

Maybe, of course, becoming a franchisee isn’t what you should do. But if you’re on the fence and considering joining a franchise, it may help to look at your weaknesses – and then see if a franchise partner such as Moran Family of Brands can give you the tools to help strengthen the areas you could use help with.

You should definitely consider teaming up with Moran Family of Brands if your weaknesses include…

Marketing. As you know, when nobody knows anything about your business, it can be hard to entice new customers to give you a second glance, let alone come in the door. That’s especially true when it comes to car maintenance. There are enough bad actors and incompetent mechanics that, unfortunately, it can be very difficult to be a mom and pop business – and draw in a steady crowd of clientele. Which means you may have to spend an inordinate amount of time and money on your marketing, which is hard to do if you’re having trouble attracting new customers in the first place.

But when you’re part of a franchise, especially on like Moran Family of Brands, which has trusted names such as Milex, Alta Mere and Mr. Transmission, much of your marketing is done with your signs. That is, the public will see you, a trusted name and known entity – rather than looking through you and passing on by.  You control 100 percent of your advertising budget.  We will coach you and guide you with solid recommendations that we have tested and have proven to be effective.  We will collaborate with you for your ultimate benefit as a business owner.

Bookkeeping. Nobody’s born understanding profit margins and cash flow and how to manage revenues and expenses. Maybe you love working with customers but your eyes glaze over when you pull out your Excel spreadsheet and calculator. We offer comprehensive training programs to teach you our proven, successful business systems. And, of course, you may want to delegate and have someone else at your company work with our business systems and do the bookkeeping.

Employee management. Do you have trouble hiring the right people? Do they sometimes end up flaking out in the middle of a shift and leaving you high and dry? Or do you find that they’re immature or lacking in expertise? While we can’t guarantee you won’t find the occasional bad apple in a bunch, we bet the quality of your employees will go way up once you’re aligned with Moran Family of Brands. With our recruitment resources and screening process to help in determining technician qualifications, we’ll help you hire and retain skilled technicians.

Customer service. Do you think you’re a little weak in this area? (Probably because you’re busy trying to find better technicians, making payroll and improving your marketing.) Well, we’ll help you and your staff here, too, using our proven, established customer service methods and best practices.

In short, nobody can do everything alone, but when you work with Moran Family of Brands, you’re never alone. And as part of the Moran family, you’ll soon be amazed at everything you can do.
