Minimising Barriers to Entry
Launching a business within financial services involves multiple hurdles (including some regulatory) which the Brokerplan Academy, an established principal firm, can assist in overcoming and may include the following:
- Lender/Provider relationships
- Solution sourcing (systems)
- Deal structuring
- Advice process & administration
- Deal processing
- Branding & Online Presence
- Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
- Business Launch & Ongoing Training
The Academy has established relationships, systems and templates in place to smooth the process to allow partners to start trading within a matter of weeks rather than months or years.
In addition to the initial business launch training, the Academy has developed a roadmap to provide direction and targets for the first 12 months of trading.
Marketing & Lead Generation
As with any new business, developing and communicating the correct marketing message to the target audience is key in attracting clients, collaborative partnerships and professional introducers. The most appropriate media and effective methods will vary depending on the product and the sector.
Lead generation is essential in any business and while the Academy will not provide leads, with over 200 partners from which to draw, original ideas, ‘tried and tested’ methods and best practice are all shared ensuring new partners have access to the most successful techniques currently used.
The ideal plan is to build a pipeline of leads and a client base who will provide repeat business and refer you to new clients. The most cost-effective method of achieving this is to work with a network of professional introducers.
Training, Guidance & Support
Partners will be provided with training including a business launch programme, ongoing webinars with lenders, live Q&A sessions, access to tools to ensure continuous professional development (CPD) and systems training.
In addition to formal training, guidance and support is provided for as long as required.
