FED up with working for someone else?

 Have you been made redundant and are looking for the right opportunity to be your own boss?

If you have answered yes to either of these questions you might want to consider a Tintmaster franchise.Tintmaster provides a reliable, professional window tinting service to both private and trade customers. Cars, trucks, buses-even offices. The market is enormous and the service has been and always will be in demand.

Their mission is to become the largest provider in the window tinting industry in Ireland, offering franchisees a home-based business which offers a better work balance with high earnings potential-a chance to gross €150,000 a year when you've established your customer base.

The company was established by James McKeefry and Karl Neely in 2006. Running a large 4x4 supply business from their base in Swatragh, they recognised a gap in the market for a customer-focused window tinting company that could provide a quality professional service - every time.

James and Karl set about creating a system that would meet their exacting standards using only the best materials-a system they could train others to use.

They had to establish the support chain and demonstrate the business was viable. This gave James and Karl the hands-on experience and understanding of marketing, selling, and delivering the window tinting service which has proved so successful today.

The first Tintmaster franchise was awarded last December to a former employee in Northern Ireland, but it is only now that the company has begun to promote their franchise nationally.







Says James: "I think we offer a fantastic package, the best the industry has to offer. There are skills to be learned in this business, but its not rocket science and anyone with enthusiasm and commitment will learn skills that will last a lifetime."

James says the business is easily operated from home-little stock, no office, no staff. Overheads are minimal and franchisees will be earning cash profits from the word "Go." And no previous industry experience is necessary-you simply have to follow their proven, winning formula.

It is a full-time job for "social" individuals who are ambitious with a strong will to succeed-and not afraid of hard work. Specific knowledge of window tinting is not a pre-requisite to starting a Tintmaster franchise since the company provides both initial and ongoing specialist training, but it is clearly a business for "practical" people who are good with their hands.

"You will need your own transport with a tow bar. We will supply you with a trailer which we will brand with company signage as part of the package, "says James.

He added: "You have to put in a lot of effort at the beginning to build your business. The opportunity is there but the level of success will be down to you."

The initial one-week training course is held at company headquarters in Swatragh, Northern Ireland. Apart from instruction in specific technical skills, the course also concentrates on customer service, sales and marketing techniques, and basic accounting.

Franchisees are encouraged to bring their own vehicle to the training session so they can be shown how to tint the windows themselves under the expert eye of James and Karl.

"If you've never run your own business before, don't worry," says James. "We provide all the training and advice you'll need to set up and run a successful and satisfying business and we'll stay with you every step of the way."

The initial franchise fee is £9,000 (approx. €10,300.)  Franchisees get an exclusive protected territory and everything they need to help start up their own business-full training and ongoing personal development, uniforms, stationary, marketing materials, a 24-hour online ordering service, personal email, website promotions-and a trailer packed with enough tools and materials for their first three months' of operations.
