Watch America's PremierExpert JW Dicks, Esq. discuss Celebrity Franchising You
Can you make everyone a Celebrity Expert?
We believe we can make ANYONE a celebrity in his or her own field because we are all unique. However, from a practical standpoint, we limit our representation. For example, we might work with several attorneys but only one in an area will be celebrity branded as an expert in tax.
Is it easy to make someone a Celebrity Expert?
Well, not necessarily easy but we do have a system.
First we start with the concept of the person’s USP and we build around that concept in everything they do. Normally for instance we find that their web site isn’t bring them business so we totally revamp it to do exactly what it is supposed to do and that is bring client or customers in the door. However, our change doesn’t stop there. We integrate the message in compelling marketing that can include everything from a book about the expert’s work, a CD interview, podcasts, press releases or even a special event or sponsorship that tells the world that this is the celebrity expert they should be dealing with.
How do I know You Can make me a Celebrity Expert?
We would be happy to show you. While each person and business is unique ALL business can be transformed and expanded. The only exception we have found is the owners desire to expand. If you want to grow we can help you and we will show you how.
How do I get started working with you?
The first step in the process is to have an initial consultation to learn a little preliminary information about you and your business, where you are and where you want to be. We then develop an outline of what we think we can do to immediately grow your company or practice. We do not go into all of the possibilities or options we see because that has been found to be confusing to business owners who don’t know which new system they would like to implement first. We eliminate that confusion in the beginning but that process will come later. What we will do is give you enough of an overview that you will be able to see your business in a new light with new and exciting possibilities. To start the process, we require and initial retainer of $1,000 for this analysis BUT, the retainer is 100% refunded immediately if you decide not to move forward with the plan we present. The purpose of the retainer is just to eliminate all of the people who want to waste time but aren’t ready to go to the next level. It is hard to believe there are people like this but you know there are. We have found that by asking for a retainer it makes people realize this is serious and not just a fun exercise (which it also is). The retainer then applies 100% to the plan we devise for you. This means we take all of the risk in meeting and showing you what we can do. You either get the retainer back or it applies to your plan, either way you will not get charged for your initial consultation. We take 100% of the risk.
What will the Celebrity Branding Cost?
Hopefully nothing. If it costs you money, we aren’t doing our job. If we are growing your business you will be making money and while you may have to advance some money in the beginning this is no different than you are presently doing with any other marketing or advertising expense you have now, except what we do is built to last.
