Join the Apollo revolution

Saturday, October 9th, 2010

It’s a lot easier to make a good living if you are selling the best products available. It also helps if you are representing one of the most high profile brands in its sector.

All of our Apollo Blinds franchise owners who attended the launch of our stunning collections know just what that means. They were the first people in the UK to see our stunning new Roller and Verticals collections and every last one of them loved them. We’re also basking in the glory of all the great comments from independent commentators who have described the collection as the most exciting, vibrant and contemporary they have ever seen.

In the week since the launch, sales have really taken off. And, as a result, we at Apollo Blinds are more optimistic about 2011 than most other businesses we know.

Which is why we have a very special Discovery Day lined up for 26th October because there’s never been a better time for people to join the Apollo network and sell the best blinds in the UK.

Find out more about our Discovery Day and then give our Recruitment Manager, Steve Ryan, a call on 07971 675647 to book your place.

And when you do, Steve will tell you about an incredible offer we have for anyone who can begin training prior to Christmas and be ready to start building their business from 1st January 2011.

The right kind of problem to have

Saturday, July 3rd, 2010

The franchise owner for Lincoln has only been up running since May as a mobile sole trader but he is already thinking about taking on a fitter.

That’s because Dean Moore has spent most of this week fulfilling orders and installing blinds in customer’s houses – which is great news as he is obviously very busy. But he already recognises that while he’s fitting, he’s not selling.

Dean’s background is in sales and marketing and he, more than most, understands that devoting the lion’s share of his time to this is the right way to build a prosperous and profitable business.

As part of his training when he first joined Apollo Blinds, Dean became a skilled fitter and he is quickly getting to the fortunate position where he can take someone on to do the fitting, which will free him up to play to his strengths.

It’s a pattern we see time and again and definitely the right kind of headache to have for a new business.
