Should I Buy or Launch a Telemarketing Training Business?
There is a lot of debate about whether it's better to start a new telemarketing training business or acquire a telemarketing training business on the business-for-sale marketplace.
Unless you have compelling reasons to launch a new business, buying an existing telemarketing training business may be the better choice.
An acquired telemarketing training business is a known quantity; a startup is less certain because its forecasts depend on estimated outcomes. If you're diligent about finding the right acquisition prospect, you may be able to leverage a business buying strategy to rapidly propel yourself into a position of industry leadership.
You have a lot riding on your entrepreneurial dreams. In addition to the financial investment, you're investing your personal passion and emotion in an endeavor that may or may not survive beyond its first year.
To protect your investment, it's worth considering the possibility of starting a franchise. Franchises streamline the startup process and enable inexperienced entrepreneurs to avoid many of the pitfalls that plague failed startups. More importantly, the right telemarketing training business franchise offers a turnkey system for turning your dreams into first-year profits.
