People start businesses daily and learn that success requires dedication, commitment, and time. If you value your time, hiring a coach that can help you through the startup phase and guide you toward success is a wise decision.
We have been helping entrepreneurs, and business owners/managers start and scale scanning businesses for over 15 years.
There are several ways we can help. Which options work for you are based on your needs and how much time you want to commit to the startup phase. If you plan to devote less time initially and get right to running your business, you will want to take advantage of all the options. On the other hand, if you are looking to start a little slower, consider the option(s) you feel will help you the most.
Scanning Business Startup
You and a consultant will discuss your business goals and what it will take to start and successfully manage your business. Get your questions answered. You will learn a ton of practical information. What’s covered is outlined on our course description page>>
Document Conversion Process
Learn how to efficiently and adequately perform high production/volume scanning. You’ll spend two to three days of hands-on training as we go through all the steps in the document conversion process, from document preparation to the final result. You learn how to use a high-speed document scanner as well as how to use production capture software.
Selling and Marketing Your Scanning Services
A day of training where you learn all about understanding your target market: who they are, why they need your services, and how to sell to them. We discuss possible objections and how to overcome them. It’s not sales 101, as this training is specific to selling document imaging and management services. We’ll also delve deeply into marketing, and you’ll come away with great ideas and strategies for lead generation.
Just what kind of equipment do you need to start a scanning business? This is not a ‘one answer fits all’ question, as we must consider the many variables. We need to have some discussions before figuring that out – like, what are your business goals and what kind of revenue you want to earn, how many people are helping you, etc.
And, then we can determine what you need for scanners, software, and other supplies. We can help you stay within your budget by looking at all the options, including buying or leasing new equipment or finding used or refurbished scanners.
Rather than many dedicated hours that can take months or years developing a system, implementing a Quality Assurance Program, creating tracking and business forms, developing policies and procedures, job descriptions, proposal templates, pricing tools, and tracking tools, we have all of it put together in a business kit. You’re welcome.
