The Ideal Candidate
No experience in signage or business is required. While Image360 Center owners are widely diverse in their experience, almost all share a number of common qualities. Most owners are:
- Outgoing - Always ready to shake a hand — and offer a business card — you should genuinely enjoy meeting the new people you’ll encounter at your Image360 Center, on sales calls, in service clubs, as a volunteer or even when waiting in line at the grocery store.
- Problem Solvers - Business owners, marketers, facility managers and event planners will come to you seeking better ways to promote, inform or direct. You’ll work with them to identify their needs, discuss their options graphics, signage and display options, and provide solutions.
- Attention to Detail - Meeting a prospect and making a sale is just the start of the process. Once you’ve gained an order, you’ll need to shepherd it through design, production, delivery or installation and, of course, billing!
- Multi-Taskers - While no Image360 Center owner can be expected to be an expert on every aspect of their Center’s operation, you’ll need to gain a working familiarity with them all.
- Persistent - To maintain a steady stream of revenue for your Image360 Center, you’ll need to pursue new prospects and follow-up with old clients to check on new opportunities, provide cost quotations and solicit orders. Your Image360 website and the digital marketing techniques we assist you with are key.
