Bizlaunch Service Descriptions
Usually based on a 30 minute to 1-hour telephone or face to face meeting to discuss the business idea.
We will help you form a Limited company, if required. We will need assistance doing this as it requires personal information to be inserted online. There are no guarantees that this can be carried out successfully, for example, if a person has any bad history as a Company Director.
You will be given a questionnaire to fill out to give us an idea on the kind of logo style you are looking for. We may even ask you to do a quick Google images search of some logos to show us some logos you like the look of. We will supply 3 logo designs for you to choose from, which we can make minor revisions to over a period of 48 hours.
We will design and upload a modern, clean looking website that will be fully responsive (will show perfectly on all desktop and mobile browsers). We may ask for content to be supplied to us in the form of a Word document, alternatively, if quoted, we can write your content for you using our professional content writers. We would also expect images to be supplied but we can supply these ourselves using high quality stock images, if quoted. Minor revisions can be made in a period of 7 days from upload. Any further revisions may be chargeable.
If not already purchased, we can supply website hosting for your new website. The cost for this is included for up to one year in initial quotations paid in advance. Monthly payment plans include hosting each month.
If not already purchased, we can supply your website address (url). Initial advance payments for our plans cover this for a period of 1 year. Monthly payment schemes cover this cost in the monthly fees.
You receive professionally designed business cards in pdf file ready for print. If quoted, we will also have the card printed and posted out to you (50 initial cards)
Google pay per click (PPC)
We will design and set up a pay per click campaign, which we feel will work best for your business. This is based on keyword research and also our own experience in your industry. The account will be set up with your own payment details. We will endeavour to get you the very best cost per click and return on investment each month. The costs per click each month will be paid directly to Google, not ourselves. Cost per click is not included in our fees.
To set this up we will need to instruct Google to post out a small pin number to your home or business address to verify the map address and activate the account. We can only activate this account when you inform us of this number.
This will be linked to your website so we will need full access to your login details to get this activated and set up. We will show you the basics with this programme to use it yourself, however, we will monitor this ourselves on any monthly marketing package you choose with us.
We will take content from your website and slightly re-word it for your circles page; we may also add some images. You will need to verify this account by email during the set up process.
Terms and conditions
These are written by our legal team and will be specific to your business website. They will also include cookie laws for your website.
You may need to provide us with your personal login details to set this up as it will be done via a ‘page’ in your name. We can set these up for you ourselves and provide you with full admin rights if you prefer.
This is designed and emailed across to you ready for copy and pasting into your email provider account. If you want this installed, you will need to advise us as this is priced separately. We can, however, advise you on how to install it by phone or email, in most cases.
We will recommend an online Bank account with our chosen supplier. There are no credit checks, however, we cannot guarantee acceptance as this process is carried out by the Bank direct. We do not get involved with the ongoing support of this account as you will need to deal direct with the Bank for this.
Phone number set up
We will provide a local rate or free phone number. Call costs and line rental fees will apply here where not quoted for. General call costs are 1 pence per minute diverted to a landline and 10 pence per minute to mobiles, for our local rate numbers. Monthly charges for line rental is £12 per month plus call charges where not quoted for, however, the line rental is included on our monthly plans. Virtual receptionist fees are charged separately by our provider where required.
You receive an initial 1 hour per month for your first 3 months. This includes both email and telephone support. We can even meet up with you in some cases. Moving forward, with monthly plans you receive an additional 1-hour business support per month
Search engine optimisation (SEO)
As standard, all our sites will receive onsite SEO, however, on our marketing plans, you receive ongoing SEO, which will include monthly reporting. We always carry out these services by adhering strictly to Googles guidelines and we always expect positive results, however, we, like any other SEO company, can never guarantee results; results may also fluctuate each month with Google updates.
Social media updates
These are written by our social media experts who will aim to make the updates interesting and fun. Our aim is to get more people interacting with your social media accounts by creating a social buzz, however, we cannot guarantee more likes or followers. We may at times ask for assistance in coming up with new content, as we may need to know more about your business and any events or stories that could be of interest.
These are filmed on location either at our offices or your place of work or home. We will take around 2 hours filming and would expect a script to be emailed to us at least 24 hours before filming, so we can prepare; we can help with these scripts where required. Videos will be under 90 seconds in length to keep visitor interest. We will provide you with the edited video with animated logo intro and background music in upload ready format to your social media, You Tube or Vimeo account. We may also upload this to your website, where quoted for.
These are written monthly by our professional content writers. They will usually be around 250 words in length. The blogs will either be uploaded to your website and/or promoted on blogging websites, which we feel will work for your business.
General leaflet and marketing designs including vehicle designs
We will provide ‘print ready’ artwork for all designs. Minor amendments can be made to designs over a period of 7 days from initial designs being produced.
We always endeavour to complete a business start-up within 4-6 weeks, however, this is dependent on client feedback and liaising. Any lengthy delays outside of the direct result of Bizlaunch and as a direct result of a client may incur charges or termination of a project.
We will aim to build a 10-page e-brochure but if not enough content is provided, this may be more or less pages. We will require content and images supplied to us, however, we can supply these if quoted for separately as an additional extra.
Franchising health check
This process will involve a brief discussion by phone and/or a meeting person to evaluate your business model and its profitability for a potential franchisee. We will also give our advice and opinions on the best way forward at this point.
Franchise legal agreements
We will draft and prepare a standard legal agreement (Licence) based on information you supply to us on request. These agreements are usually less than 40 pages in length. Additional legal documentation such as Operations Manual and Terms and Conditions may be required at this stage, which is not included in the initial fees unless quoted for as an additional item. Our legal advisor will advise you as to what is needed once the initial franchise agreement is drafted.
Advertising a franchise
We will draft and prepare an eye-catching and well-written advert to promote your franchise on the Daltons website. This may include images, logo and even a video in some cases, where quoted. We will cover costs for the initial 3 months advertising in the franchise section of Daltons as part of our initial fees. Any further months advertising would need to be quoted for separately. You will be expected to handle all enquiries generated from this advert, unless you instruct us to do so at an agreed monthly fee.
We will assist and advise on the best way to map out your territories for your franchise. This may be based on households, how many businesses there are in a given area and a variety of other factors.; our fees do not include the software itself. If you require actual mapping drawn out and prepared, you would need to ask for this to be quoted separately.
These are invoiced monthly on the first of each month and will need to be paid by Direct Debit. The agreements are rolling contracts, so we will require 1 months’ notice to stop any agreement term once the initial term has expired.
