When you’re first considering how to start a cell phone repair business, many questions probably run through your mind. As with any investment, you want to make sure you’re completely confident in the industry and in the business before you take that next big step. At Experimax, we know that starting a cell phone repair franchise is no easy task, but through diligent preparation you can set yourself up for success. Learning all about the industry, making sure you’re personally ready and qualified to manage a franchise team, and understanding the marketing landscape will equip you to hit the ground running.
Get Familiar With Our Industry
As with any new business, an understanding of the industry is incredibly important. Knowing how to repair computers and smartphones is a great start, but there’s still a lot to learn about the cell phone repair franchise industry. Our business model is focused on computer repairs and resales, and right now computer sales alone are a $304 billion industry. Smartphones and tablets are also among our most popular items for sale, trade-in, and repair. Of course, we don’t expect you to know everything, which is why we have an in-depth training program in place to teach you the ins and outs of your franchise.
Make Sure You’re Ready to Manage a Team
Regardless of your professional background, we encourage anyone interested in owning an Experimax cell phone repair franchise to reach out to us. Your personal qualities are far more important to us than your qualifications. You will be the boss of your cell phone repair franchise, so you must be prepared to lead your team and train employees on the best practices for computer resales and repairs. This means being a good communicator, easily approachable, a quick learner, and being able to adapt easily to a new business model. Even if you don’t have an ounce of management experience, our ongoing support gives you access to experts for any advice you may need along the way.
Get Ready to Get the Word Out
It’s one thing to have a grand opening and start a cell phone repair franchise, but quite another to actually create a presence in your community, and generate awareness about your business. You should be prepared to spearhead a marketing campaign that highlights what makes your business unique. Luckily, with an Experimax franchise it’s pretty easy to identify and highlight what makes us unique. We offer trade-ins on devices many of our competitors won’t take, higher trade-in value, and a quick turnaround on repairs. Emphasizing these points in your marketing strategy will be a great way to entice customers to come into your store.
