if you wanted to learn a subject… I mean REALLY learn it, which would you rather do?
a) Read an Information Booklet or
b) Take a proven expert to lunch, “hog-tie” them to their chair and refuse to let them leave until
they’ve told you everything you ever wanted to know about your desired subject?
The answer is obvious, right? (Okay, you might want to pass on the “hog-tying” part, but you get the idea). Obviously, it would be better to get the information “straight from the horse’s mouth” as opposed to reading it or listening to it. It’s no different when it comes to growing your business… You can either try to figure it all out on your own, or you can go to the expert and listen to what they have to say… live in that person's shoes. Well, if that scenario excites you, then I have very good news. We offer this experience for you. “
These group sessions are the "best bang for your buck". In this hour session you will hear the answers to the questions you hadn’t even thought to ask (i.e. other people’s questions). This is called leveraging on others, and with 120+ Jimbos out there, it is exactly what we are all about. I personally run the sessions and would love to see you there. Every alternative Thursday night, between 5-6pm always close to the city. Please complete the form and one of the staff will get back to you asap, or call 1300 783 928.

Obviously, this means different things to different people. We certainly have a great team with a lot of depth. Recently, our ability to help our franchisees deal with the changing OH&S certainly reflects this. But looking at it from a purely “nuts and bolts” analytical position, Jim's has two major strategic advantages, namely the cheaper cost of customer acquisition and size, and a focus on putting franchisee support above all other priorities.
Jim's has the cheapest cost of customer acquisition, which means that it cost us less to get our message through, and customers through the door. The Jim's brand, reputation and its awareness in the marketplace, means that many people call Jim's each year just based on awareness and reputation. This is a large strategic advantage as we do not have to pay large advertising costs to get that lead. By joining Jim's, you get to take advantage of the 25 years of marketing and branding that we have engaged in.
The other and most important success determinant resource is you. The Jim’s system invests time and resources both at the State and National level. You receive a monthly contact call, where we gauge how you are going and what assistance we can provide you. We also have monthly group meetings and workshops, along with information and coaching newsletters. The goals of all these activities is to help you build the best business that you can. It is one thing to work hard, but true results come from direction on what to work on and when. Operating under correct knowledge.
Why pay fees?
Fees are an extremely important part of any franchise system, as they provide the critical infrastructure for you to succeed. Your fees pay for things like state advertising, the call centre, IT infrastructure, National and State offices etc. And with Jim's ethos of "putting franchisees first," this translates into a strong support and knowledge base, which provides you with the resources and capabilities to run a professional and effective business. Having said that, we are mindful that fees should always equal excellent value for money, otherwise what's the point of being in a franchise system?
How much does a Jim’s business really cost?.
There is no question that there are cheaper mowing businesses out there. But what is the real $ difference i.e. how much more is it going to cost me to have a Jim’s Mowing branded business?
Let's say that you purchase a business for 25K, with clients, rather than a business worth 10K (i.e Jims costs 15K more). If you borrowed this extra amount at 7% per annum, it would cost you an extra $22 per week (to have that Jimbo business). Now, have a look at the quality of the business you can buy for 10k.
Of course, this assumes that you sell your business at what you bought it at (25K). We would hope that our knowledge and support, and your effort, skill and knowledge etc. will continue to improve your business and you sell it for more (or do mini splits).
How long before I can get back the money I invested?. What are splits?
This is what many of us look at when getting into business. One way to do this, is to look at the revenue and allocate a weeks amount out of it. The other way is to look at a Split. A split represents excellent value for both buyer and seller. They allow you to split your business into two, and sell one of those halves. The amazing thing about this process, is that it allows you to turn the potential disadvantage “growth ceiling,” (being an owner operator means that you only have 40 hours in a week), into a fantastic opportunity for you to get back your original investment, or more through multiple splits. I believe the record in Jim’s mowing South Australia is 8. In fact, by working splits into your growth strategy, you could literally keep growing for ever.

"It was two weeks before Christmas 1982... I was thirty years old and a failure. I had failed in my academic career. Now my business had failed. I lost my house, and was saddled with a $30,000 debt. All that I had left was my Kingswood (by now rather battered), a small trailer, and a mower and brush cutter on their last legs. Obviously I had no talent for business and probably not much for anything else either. And yet something did change the oldest and simplest thing in the world. I got married. I knew I had to buckle down and work hard to get out of the mess I was in. And somehow I knew I could"
