Happy New Year! With 2023 underway, and the festive season over, the new year is a chance to reset and refresh your business approach. At MSI Taylor, we understand the challenge of running a successful business, especially as a franchisee.
If you own a franchise store, when planning for the new year, it can be helpful getting inspiration from another successful franchise on how they operate – for example, F45.
F45 is globally one of the fastest growing fitness franchises, with a business model designed to support the franchisee in a variety of areas whilst enhancing the client experience.
What helps make F45 franchises succeed, is their simplicity in concept, franchise replication capability, availability of resources, adaptability, and serviceability.
There are plenty of lessons you can learn from F45’s approach that may help you kick off the new year fresh as a franchisee.
That’s why we’ve put together five tips to help your franchise succeed, in 2023.
1. Set realistic goals
Write down your business objectives and create an action plan. Break down your goals into achievable steps and don’t forget to include deadlines! MSI Taylor can help you with goal setting, planning, and budgeting. When setting these goals, it can also be beneficial to review the previous year before focusing on the future. Assess how successful your strategies were, taking a look at areas of growth, and any possible improvements.
2. Analyze & Plan
Taking the time to analyze your business plan / strategy allows you to see where your business is headed and identify potential issues or opportunities. MSI Taylor can help you develop a blueprint for your business, looking at areas such as cash flow, profitability and planning. An important part of running a successful business is being able to identify what makes it profitable and looking for ways to increase efficiency in day-to-day operations. This could include reviewing your marketing strategy, as well as how you manage staff and processes.
3. Invest in Technology
With the right systems and processes in place, you can manage your business more efficiently. Automating tasks or integrating a web-based point-of-sale system could be just the ticket to freeing up some time while increasing profits.
4. Stay Abreast of Industry Trends
Keeping up to date with industry trends is essential for staying ahead of the competition. Attending seminars or conferences, reading industry magazines, and talking to other franchisees are all great ways to stay informed.
5. Get Professional Help
Seeking professional advice can be invaluable for understanding how you can improve your franchise’s performance. MSI Taylor can provide cash flow management, budgeting, business planning assistance and advice on strategies to grow or scale down your business.
These five tips will help you kick start the year on the right foot and ensure that the foundations of your franchise are solid.
