Success is dependent on forging strong relationships with clients’ C-suites. The stronger these relationships, the more areas of each business franchisees will be invited to optimize – and the more profit they will be able to uncover and share.

What do ERA franchisees think of the brand?

“I’m confident that leaving my corporate role in New York to start my ERA franchise will give me the rewards, lifestyle and balance that I’m looking for. I love finding profits for my clients and my income is directly linked to my own efforts – that’s a great place to be.” – Laura, franchisee since 2021.

“I was in my late-20’s when I started. My wife joined me in the business a few years later and we are now a team of 7. We enjoy a dream work/life balance, make a great income and have that precious time for our family.” – Pritesh, franchisee since 2006.

“I joined ERA over 10 years ago with the ambition to build a large consulting business. Today I employ more than 25 people. We’ve got ambitious targets to take our business from today’s 7-figure revenues to even higher levels.” – Peter, franchisee since 2008

“I was certainly aware of the training, but was not prepared for the vast quantity of information shared, or the expertise of the presenters and trainers. I think it could be a very strong value add to those considering joining ERA – and not just because of the learning, but also as an introduction to the network. It really backs up everything we’re told in the lead up to signing an ERA contract.” – Alex, franchisee since 2021.

Hear from ERA’s chairman

“There are a lot of consultants in the world who work from home and work by themselves – it’s very, very lonely. Our business is not lonely, because you’re working with all these other people in your own country, region, or even across a whole continent. You become very comfortable inside the business – it becomes your family.”

– Fred Marfleet, founder and executive chairman, Expense Reduction Analysts.

What are the returns like with an ERA franchise?

ERA’s prosperous business model allows franchisees to build a recurring monthly income stream with typically 60-70 per cent net profit – returns which are made all the more exceptional by the considerably low overheads an ERA business requires.

Typically, solo consultants with around 10 clients have the potential to earn up to £250,000 per year – but why stop there? Growing the practice to hire more consultants can see franchisee earnings at least double.

Few franchise models give franchisees the ability to truly scale upwards when they want it to – but ERA’s does.

Success is dependent on networking and forging lasting relationships with clients’ C-suite. The stronger these relationships are, the more areas of each business consultants will be invited to optimize – and thus the more profit franchisees will be able to uncover and share. There is also the potential to sign up new clients should these C-suite team members move companies.

The financial rewards are what franchisees make them to be.

Take the initiative and enjoy the life-affirming results of owning an ERA consultancy

Hunger, proactivity, ambition and energy – combining these core pillars with your corporate experience is the rock-solid foundation from which franchisees can build a truly successful business standing alongside ERA.

Franchisees must also be comfortable and confident when dealing with people – ERA franchisees depend on business from C-suite professionals, therefore franchisees must be able to openly converse and speak with them. By forging stronger bonds with C-suite professionals, ERA franchisees give themselves an opportunity to optimize more areas of the business and access hidden profits.

Ultimately, what franchisees put into it is what they get out of it – if franchisees are driven to succeed, ERA’s tried and trusted model and world-class support network can help deliver the results.
