Hello Everyone!

About Me
I’m Sarah, I am a corporate recruiter runaway that always wanted to be a business owner when she grew up. I finally had a mid-life meltdown and decided it was time. I have had my LLC since 2016 and been helping people launch their own business since then but finally went out on my own 9 months ago. I am trying to get a spot on Google and generate my own leads but it is an art like no other. One of the suggestions is to blog, and blog a lot! Here is the problem, I’m not a writer… I also have poor grammar! So here I am gutting it out, trying to write content that gets people to my site and attract business owners looking to own a franchise.

How I help
Many people want to own a business, but don’t know where to begin. They also have no idea how to run/ start a business. That is where franchising and I can help. I represent over 350+ franchises. I help a candidate identify what they can afford, a lifestyle fit, and a passion. I also have partnerships with attorneys, CPA’s and lending company specializing in franchising. I also help candidates to know how to properly conduct the discovery of the franchise with questions to ask and things to think through. The best part for clients, my services are paid for by the franchise and is no cost to them.

Favorite social media site
In this order for business: LinkedIn, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram (really dislike Instagram).

I love to participate in these kind of groups and will give more than I take, I reciprocate all!

    HI @sarahjbarker
    It is wonderful to meet you! I believe that blogging is a fantastic way to generate traffic to your website and to create trust and authority for your business.
    I disagree with “blog a lot” – while publishing a lot of blog posts is a fantastic way to generate traffic my thoughts are to focus instead on creating the right content, using the right keywords and making sure that you are engaging with your audience and make sure that you are implementing good SEO on your site.
    You don’t have to be an amazing writer to blog, it is a skill that can be learned through practice – also you can find yourself a great content writer (like @elizeswanepoel that has written countless fantastic articles for my site) – then you just let her know what topics to write and give her some guidelines to follow.
    I look forward to getting to know you and I hope that the community here can help you to achieve your goals and grow your business.

      Thank you! I have really been focusing on guest bloggers that are in businesses that work with us. Like shortly I will have a “how to fund a business” and “understanding funding for buying a franchise” series coming out. I’ve also lined up payroll and CPA guest bloggers. These seem to get them most traffic. I had no idea blogging was such a big thing!

      BTW Neal Patel is running master classes now saying content isn’t king anymore, so who knows, I certainly don’t!

    Hi @sarahjbarker! Welcome to the group and nice to meet you. I love your business concept. I have looked into franchises and found it overwhelming. I think your service is brilliant and it’s a no brainer because it’s not an additional fee for the customer.

    I also feel like I suck at writing but I want to blog because I know information is key. You can try PLR (done for you written content). You will have to edit it but there is comfort in having a place to start. You could also hire someone to write articles for you. Grammarly is my best friend! Seriously, I can’t understand how I forgot to spell. Oh, and I hate commas…(Grammarly made me add the commas you see.) Content can also be creating videos and then you can have those transcribed.

    Glad you are in the group! I am excited to work with you.

    As a fellow writer with bad grammar (and added in bad spelling), I can’t recommend the plugin Grammarly enough! They have a plugin for chrome and an app for android ( I believe apple as well). I use the free version and it helps me so much! It gives you spelling and grammar suggestions as you type in any text field on an app or website.
