Start a Scanning Business

Scanning Bureau Business Startup

People are starting businesses everyday! To be successful, it takes dedication and commitment. And time. Time is valuable, as we all know. If you are reading this, then you just might be committed to launching your scanning business or at least thinking really hard about it.

We have been helping entrepreneurs, business owners and managers start and scale scanning businesses for 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 want to commit less time to starting and get right to running your business, then you will want to take advantage of all the options. If you are looking to start a little slower, then consider which option(s) will help you the most.

Scanning Business Startup

This is time spent discussing the details that go into starting and operating the business. All your questions get answered. You learn a ton of information. What’s covered is outlined on our course description page>>

Document Conversion Process

This is hands-on training. Two- three days are spent learning how to perform batch scanning of paper documents in a high-production environment efficiently and producing quality work. We go through all the steps in the process from document preparation to the final result.

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, this training is specific to selling document imaging and management services. We’ll delve deeply into the marketing side and you’ll come away with great ideas and strategies for lead generation.

Technology Needs

Just what kind of equipment do you need to start a scanning business? Well this is not a ‘one answer fits all’ kind of question as there are many variables to consider. First, we talk about your business goals. And, we’ll identify what kind of revenue you want to earn and how many people are helping you. Next, budget. Then we can figure out 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.

Business Kit

Rather than spend years developing a system, learning how to implement a Quality Assurance Program, creating tracking and business forms, developing policies and procedures, job descriptions, proposal templates, pricing tools and cost management tracking tools, we have all of it put together in a business kit. You’re welcome.

Sales, Marketing & Lead Gen for Scanning Businesses

We work together to understand your market and then create a strategic marketing plan that drives traffic to your door. The plan includes the stages of the marketing funnel and identifies our part vs yours, if you want to be involved. We will execute the plan, build awareness of your company, generate leads, turn them to prospects and then hand them to your sales team.

We will run campaigns, create press releases, create and manage content development, find the best advertising opportunities. We are your marketing arm.

Virtual Assistants

Need Talent?

As you scale and your need for talent grows, you can turn to us to help you. We have a team of skilled Virtual Assistants that have experience in all types of office roles and functions.

Our most common request for a virtual assistant is for an executive assistant; someone who knows how to help a very busy CEO or VP with every day tasks of running a business. Like, calendar management, travel arrangements, research, buying, setting appointments, scheduling and running events.

There are many tasks that a virtual assistant can do to help relieve the stress and get things done. We can help until you hire someone or your assigned Virtual Assistant can be your person. permanently. Save time searching, interviewing, paying a recruiter, managing payroll, training someone, etc.

You work on what you need to do and let the Virtual Assistant handle all the tasks that bog you down and steal your time.

How it Works

Our talented Virtual Assistants work from their homes (mostly). You assign work and delegate. We manage their time, projects and payroll.

Upon your decision to use one (or as many as you need) of our Virtual Assistants, we take a little bit of time and get to know you. We ask you questions that help us to understand your needs and give us a little insight to your personality. We then select the best Virtual Assistant from our available talent and assign them to your account. At that point you can put them to work.

Our Virtual Assistants are skilled in many areas. For more information visit our VA Services page>>

Our Virtual Assistant services change the way companies scale.
