Franchisee Community Involvement

Giving Back

Whether you’re an independent entrepreneur or a member of a franchise system, it is important that you remain an active player within your community. Small business isn’t just about selling your product or service (it never has been!) — it’s also about immersing yourself within the community that you serve, to the point that you become an inseparable, irreplaceable part of the collective whole.

Here are a few ways to start establishing a community presence:

  1. Attend public events. Whether it be an event for local business owners or the annual town parade, be there. Mingle. Get to know the people in your community. Once you’ve gotten comfortable, you might consider taking your involvement one step further by actively contributing your time or expertise to a local cause.
  2. Hold an open house. Plan a barbecue or an open house at your place of business. Allow non-customers to come out and try your products or services for free or at a reduced cost. Become a true community ambassador by embracing those that live in your local area.
  3. Dedicate yourself to a cause that you hold near and dear to your heart. Weed Man franchise owners feel strongly about enhancing the outdoor environment. As a result, many individuals in our network volunteer their time or services to events that are dedicated to beautifying local green spaces. Take a similar approach by participating in (or spearheading!) community events that are meaningful to you and your company’s mission.
  4. Take a one-on-one approach. Form bonds with your neighbors and customers outside of a work environment. Get to know the people who have made your business a success and assist them in accomplishing their own community improvement goals.

Success comes in many forms. Often, giving back to the community on a personal level or through your business is one of the greatest successes of all.  Start establishing a strong community presence by immersing yourself in local events and getting involved with meaningful, fulfilling projects.

Forget New Year’s Resolutions – Make An Action Plan!

new-years-action-plan

Happy 2017! Welcome to a new year filled with opportunity for you and your business.

As you gear up for the year ahead, consider throwing more traditional resolution-making out the window. Why? Resolutions are often too vague and lack the process map needed to attain goals. That’s why Weed Man recommends making an action plan. An action plan is a comprehensive, step-by-step guide that will help you along the path toward reaching your goal(s). It gives you a workable checklist that will hold you more accountable throughout the year.

Below are a few samples to help you rethink your goal-setting strategy and turn those vague resolutions into detailed plans: Sample goal #1: Provide better customer service.

Sample action plan #1: I will aim to improve my company’s customer service department by:

  • Implementing paid, hands-on training workshops with my staff every Thursday morning at 8:00 am.
  • Introducing a performance-based reward system to motivate members of the department.
  • Recording calls for quality assurance purposes and providing feedback to members of my staff.


Sample goal #2:
Make more money online this year.

Sample action plan #2: I will attempt to grow in the digital space by:

  • Investing in pay-per-click and mobile advertising.
  • Getting involved in social media.
  • Making improvements to my company’s website.


Sample goal #3:
 Keep my employees longer.

Sample action plan #3: I will improve employee retention by:

  • Revamping our company’s pay structure.
  • Providing regular feedback to staff members.
  • Creating a monthly social hour with free drinks and snacks to help build employee morale.

See the difference? Try it yourself! Remember: an action plan will keep you focused by honing in on the steps needed to help you reach your goals.
