Make it your mission to film a Head Teacher endorsing your work, just like this franchisee has...

This is one of many very simple but powerful ways to communicate the impact you’re having in schools...without actually saying a word...

Here’s how...

Step 1 - Ask a Head Teacher you have a good relationship with, to spare just two minutes to go on camera and tell other neighbouring Head Teachers about your great work. A good question to ask might be; “Please tell us about the impact of Premier Sport/Premier Performing Art/The Golden Mile in your school?”

The 1st4sport ‘combined qualification’ breaks down to £125 per Level 2. Fantastic value compared to our competitors.

What is the value on your time?

Franchisee James Jennison and his team have now secured 18 meetings since the 100 Club Celebration Day; 11 of these with new schools or schools previously worked in. James has the potential to up-sell to the remaining seven schools.

Area Coordinator Paul Baker from Wigan and Leigh, talks about his ‘WOW’ moment during a ‘new’ school meeting last week...

We’ve also heard from 100 Club member, Ian Gray this week after confirming a new £7200 contract.

So, in just three meetings, James, Ian and Paul have generated sales worth a combined £27,200!

Since last week’s article on the outstanding holiday camp revenue, over 65% has been claimed. However, that means over £20k is still outstanding. Are you owed money?

Your schools have budgeted for it, have you? It’s contract renewal time...

Have you planned and budgeted for your increased costs from next year?

If not, now is the time you must do so, before you sign contract renewals. Schools are likely to have budgeted for it and expect a minimal rise year on year.

A 3% increase now will be better and easier for you to manage than nothing this year and then 6% next year!

What costs are likely to go up for you?

71% of 100 Club members own a Premier Performing Arts license. 100 Club member, Peter Bennett takes 20% profit from his license for less than 5% of his time. Can you find a performing arts specialist to invest in a license with you?

Duncan “Good-for-You”, and good for business!

Duncan Goodhew MBE provided an enormous boost to Gary Scroby’s territory on 23 April by visiting four schools in Ash and Aldershot in just one day.

Two of the schools visited are Gary’s biggest clients and the four together represent 50% of his turnover. The visit should help cement renewal contracts for 2015/16, and importantly has opened other avenues for incremental growth. Active Surrey have expressed an interest in making one of the schools a showcase study to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Golden Mile, and the Director of the School Partnership in North Hampshire has asked for a proposal on rolling out the Golden Mile to the 30 primary schools in his cluster.

Gary commented:

“I would like to thank Head Office for investing in Duncan’s time, on my behalf. The impact that the ambassador visit will have on my business (Premier Sport & The Golden Mile) will be massive. It’s certainly strengthened my existing relationships and is already opening doors to new schools within my territory. Thanks again for the support!”

Following our announcement at this year’s NTE, the Marketing department are pleased to confirm phase one of changeover to the new Irongate platform will happen w/c 11th May. Don’t forget, this does not affect ordering sports qualifications, ID badges and training courses from the online shop. This process remains the same in the short term.

Be outstanding in everything you do!

Ask yourself, “are my staff, my business and I, outstanding in everything we do?”

... If not, then you won’t be delivering an OUTSTANDING service. Your customers will compare you with anyone they wish to compare you with and not just another activity or coaching provider.

A school will compare you to the Music Teacher or even the post man! If you walk into a school making no eye contact or not communicating with the office staff, soon followed in by the post man who smiles and stops for a chat - the school will compare you with him/her!

The Golden Mile proves to be more powerful than this franchisee ever imagined...

This particular franchisee’s story started out with the simple understanding that if the business was going to invest in the Golden Mile it had to have the correct structure around it to fulfil its desired potential.

The key part of this structure was to create a Physical Activity (PA) Coordinator role, a position that would ensure the franchise was CONSISTENTLY selling, not only to new schools but to its existing customer base via the Base Line Measurement data capture.

Due to its success, this original role has organically evolved with the PA Coordinator, meaning management of the entire sales process, from start to finish, is now a daily requirement five days a week.

It seems increasingly likely that no party will win the election outright. However, this week marked a crucial landmark in the election campaign and an opportunity for lobbyists and advocacy groups to see the cut-through that they have had over the past five years. So how does the activity sector stack up?
