Going Live with Animals at Home
Once you've agreed your start date and your Animal Ambulance has been organised, Animals at Home start to engage the website team, training venues and on area trainer to work through the well designed and executed training schedule, of bringing you on board as a Director of your own business within the Animals at Home (H/O) Ltd Franchisee family.
Animals at Home build for you …. the setting up of your accounts for Google, Google My Business and Google Adwords Campaign (voluntary paid for advertising) and Facebook pages as well as building your website a month before you go live to maximise the Google organic listings for your business. This along with email and all other technical requirements are set up for you or where necessary we offer guidance and support to assist you in this process via our Technical Team
Your first few days …. with Animals at Home will be at your ‘Onsite Operational Training’ before this you will have attended an Accredited First Aid Course as well as many other Training topics. This will become second nature to you during your daily routine and will be pivotal to your visits to your local vets in the future, offering a second pair of hands for the vet and a second pair of ears for the client. You will take delivery or have converted your existing vehicle to become an Animal Ambulance during this training as you will require the vehicle for the ‘On Area’ part of the training.
The launch of your Animals at Home company …. is completed via your local media and Google Adword's Campaigns to maximise local awareness. Often at this point many Franchisees have already contacted local vets, grooming parlours and other key lead generation sources, although this will be explained with you during the ‘On Area’ training.
‘On Area’ …. You will already have received your 'Action Plan' document from the trainer of some ‘To Do’s’ to be completed prior to the time you will be spending together, this ensures you maximise the time effectively.
Our training is designed and delivered ….. by an existing Franchisee and Director of Animals at Home who has over 18 years Franchise experience in training and planning. As an existing Franchisee they understand the concerns and questions that can be raised by a new Franchisee which quickly helps to build knowledge and confidence in the services to be supplied. The new starters will be provided with a one to six week action plan, Operations Manual, with regular contact to offer advice and top tips. This mentoring will be provided by the trainer for the first six months, with other Franchisees and information available on our facebook Franchisee Owners Group page.
During and following this process you have the whole of the Management Team available to answer any questions and provide assistance where required.
