People are starting businesses every day and learning that to be successful it requires dedication, commitment, and time. If you value your time, hiring a coach that can help you through the startup phase and guide you towards 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 want to commit 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
One to two days of consulting. 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 practical information. What’s covered is outlined on our course description page>>
Document Conversion Process
This is hands-on training. Two or three days are spent learning how to perform batch scanning of paper documents in a high-production environment efficiently and while producing high-quality work. We go through all the steps in the process, from document preparation to the final result multiple times, for many project types. 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 delve deeply into marketing as well, 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 many variables need to be considered. We need to have some discussions before figuring that out – like, what are your business goals and what kind of revenue do you want to earn, and how many people are helping you? 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.
Rather than many dedicated hours that can take months or 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 tracking tools, we have all of it put together in a business kit. You’re welcome.
