About the eDivert Franchise

eDivert is a unique franchise opportunity, offering business support services from your home office.

With the eDivert business model, you will build a business with low overheads and high profit margins. Where in many industries, like recruitment and home care, profit margins of only 20% are achieved, our business model achieves 50% to 80%.

The eDivert business model is scalable to your ambitions and can be run on your own or you can build up a team and hire employees.

When investing in an eDivert franchise, you have the choice out of 3 different packages depending on your budget and ambitions: The Essential package which provides you with all the basics. Or the Accelerator or Elite package if you want to grow your business faster in a shorter space of time. 

eDivert and its franchise network deliver high quality business support services to companies in every sector. Our services include:

  • Customer service solutions, including telephone answering, live chat answering and managing social media messages on behalf of other businesses.
  • Marketing services such as email marketing, social media, lead generation, pipeline management and telemarketing.
  • Administrative services, such as bookkeeping, invoicing, diary management, market research, outbound calling projects and transcription.

Unlike a traditional franchise, with eDivert you don’t buy a geographical area. This means that if you move to a different area in the UK or even abroad, your business will not be affected. It also means that you can take on customers from anywhere in the UK.

You will still benefit from exclusivity; our CRM-system ensures that franchisees don’t compete with each other.

As part of the eDivert network, you will have the opportunity to take work on from other franchisees and from head office, which allows you to grow your business 3 times faster than when you start on your own.

Once you get too busy yourself, you can take on staff or outsource some of your work to other franchisees within the network, knowing that they have received the same training as you have and share the same values.

In the eDivert network, franchisees are completely independent, but at the same time truly work together, with ongoing support from head office. Our business model offers the SOLUTION to a perfect work-life balance.

Your earning potential with our business model will vary depending on the amount of time you devote to your business and the business model you choose. Typically a franchisee who works full-time and buys into the Accelerator or Elite packages will achieve a turnover of over £100,000 within 3 years, while on the Essential packages franchisees achieve £30,000 to £50,000 a year by year 3. Feel free to request our Financial Projections for more details.

Our eDivert network

As a business, we are passionate about our people – it is what makes us so unique! Once a week franchisees are invited to attend a webinar session. This meeting is a great opportunity for franchisees to learn from each other and build relationships. The sessions also include training and updates on industry developments.

We also organise several meetings a year throughout the country, which offers franchisees the opportunity to meet in person with each other.

Our company structure guarantees that you will have a strong team ready to support you in any situation.

After all, our success starts from yours!

Training and support provided

The eDivert training and support

Our training and support are second to none and is provided remotely through interactive webinars and our online training system.

You won’t have to worry about additional costs for travel or overnight stays. In the training, we provide you with all the information from starting your business, to what marketing strategy to use to grow your business, and how to deliver the services. We also go in more depth into how to close a sale with a potential customer and the different pricing packages available for your customers. After the training, you continue to have easy access to head office and the other franchisees for any support you may require. We also supply new marketing materials, training videos, help with business planning, an annual conference and ongoing training.

The ideal eDivert franchisee

Who are we looking for?

We welcome franchisees from a variety of professional and educational backgrounds, ensuring that eDivert has the widest skill set on offer to business communities around the UK.

Previous experience in customer service, sales, marketing or administration is helpful, but most importantly, you will need a can-do attitude! We are looking for individuals with drive, dedication, passion and an eagerness to learn.

Our franchise opportunity is ideal for anyone who would like a flexible work solution to fit around their family or hobbies.

You must be highly organised, efficient and professional with a sense of urgency and tenacity.

Don’t worry if you have not had previous experience in the services that the eDivert business model offers; full training and ongoing support is provided.

Our franchisees are all self-motivated and resourceful, approachable and natural networkers.

Case studies

eDivert Franchises Deliver Success Despite Uncertainty

Stewart Dunne – eDivert Chichester

Stewart has worked in senior sales roles for the majority of his career but had reached the point where he wanted to cut back on travelling. The pandemic handed him an opportunity by way of redundancy and Stewart grasped it with both hands and started looking at the possibility of becoming a franchisee.

“eDivert stood out for me because it was really the only franchise which allowed me to utilise my existing skillset and benefit from an existing business model” he explains. “I didn’t want my business acumen to go to waste but I wanted a better quality of life after being on the road for years.”

Stewart took eDivert’s Business Accelerator package, which entitled him to a ‘press-and-go’ marketing campaign and business networking membership. He wanted a better lifestyle while still retaining a ‘bread-winning’ income and eDivert has delivered exactly that.

The accelerator package is expected to achieve a monthly turnover of over £2,500 within the first 6 months and Stewart exceeded this, despite being in the middle of lockdown.

Beki Orme – eDivert Kent

Beki joined eDivert 2 years ago, in early 2019, and signed up her first customer within 3 months of beginning to trade. She attributes this speed to the excellent support and training that was provided by eDivert.

Her franchise has come into its own, however, since lockdown as she now finds herself home schooling her two young children. Due to the flexibility of the eDivert model, she’s been able to scale back her business to make room for time with the children while still maintaining a stable income.

Beki says “My life has changed for the better as I work from home and there is so much more flexibility. I have more of a work life balance which is ideal with having two young children as I am here if needed and can work around them.”

Sharna Pratchett – eDivert Ipswich

Finally, Sharna joined eDivert a month before coronavirus really ramped up, in February 2020. She is also now combining her business with home schooling and has used the opportunity to expand her personal skills.

Sharna describes what appealed to her about eDivert: “Initially it was the opportunity to work from home which, although it was only a short time ago, wasn’t the norm then like it is now.”

Having the support of a team also appealed to Sharna because this meant the opportunity to outsource work to one another; something she felt was critical to success during the early stages of setting up her business.

“I wanted to introduce telephone answering and live chat to my business portfolio” says Sharna, “so I joined the Head Office team that were already delivering this service to learn how it worked.” It’s this combination of business owner and team member that makes the eDivert franchise model so attractive. No-one is constrained to delivering set services; instead they can be flexible to allow for their existing skill sets, as well as the all-important work-life balance we’ve all had to adopt over the past year.

“I have so much more control over what I do, who I work with and the hours that I work. Being part of a team like this means when I need time off for the kids or want to have a holiday, I can outsource my work the other franchisees and am still earning, without letting my clients down.”
