- The above equipment will remain the property of Gdsyn and will be upgraded every 24-36 months to keep the equipment current. It will in turn make sure that the product is of the highest quality. It will remain in the custody of the franchisee for the duration of the relationship. It also takes away the temptation to cut costs by using cheaper and outdated eqipment
Onsite training and backup, along with a marketing stragedy, the designs will be done centrally.
Monthly news letters to all franchise holders updating them on new products and services.
Training in marketing as well as enlisting resellers will be included. During the training the prospective resellers will be invited to meet the local franchisee and to sit in on the products training part of induction course.
There are a wide range of products in the way of what Gdsyn can afford the client and can provide a sort of one stop shop in the way of services. ( see below).
All design will be centrally located to ensure that standards are upheld. The franchise holder will be using the Gdsyn website to market off and the standard seen at this site will need to be maintained.
All relevant documentation will be issued to the Franchisee in the way of a CD which contain sales agreements, pricing structures, packages, marketing and sales techniques which are unique to Gdsyn.
The Gdsyn branding will be synonymous with a certain way of doing a design or a website. The website will also be used for marketing reasons as well, often the client has gone to the website and decided from that which site they want to go along with and this can speed up production.
The franchise agreement will also be reconsidered once every year. (See franchise agreement).
The franchisee can decide on how best they would like to market their services within the framework of the franchise agreement.
Reseller / Agent
This is for anyone who wants to make extra commission on referrals. If the reseller sends Gdsyn a deal that becomes qualified he or she gets remunerated as soon as the deposit is received. Ideally the reseller will be either a representative from SA Tourism or Brabys who can steer business the way of the franchise holder either in the form of SME deals or Guest Houses.
The reseller will have none of the formal training or infrastructural input from Gdsyn, but will have access to using the website and personal for marketing and trouble shooting. The reseller will get their commission as soon as the deal becomes qualified, in other words, as soon as the deposit is paid into Gdsyn’s bank account and has been registered as a legitimate payment, then the commission will be paid immediately.
An arrangement can be entered into between a local franchisee and a reseller with the above taken into consideration.
The commission structure is confidential and will be an arrangement between the franchisee and the reseller independent of the franchisor.
Website design; Guest Houses and SME’s ( see packages)
Hosting ( all hosting will be handled by Gdsyn)
Ideally, the franchisee will be able to concentrate on sales only as the actual processing of the design will be done by the Franchisor. The franchisee should make at least ten sales per month, this equates to just over 2 per week; R15 000 per month if concentrating on only the advertorial product and excluding the actual website products. Considering that this is based on a cumilative model, this should be very lucrative if properly maintained.
The complete business plan will be discussed in greater detail at a later stage.
The cost of entering this arrangement is R185 000.00 once off and non refundable.
The monthly costs are R3500.00 which includes the website design, brochures, virtual tours , business cards and all the products Gdsyn has to offer.
Once the agreement has been signed, a 50% deposit will be invoiced out, and the difference to be paid once the training period of two weeks is complete. Please note that the deposit is also non-refundable.
