Are you ready to take control of your professional life? Have you decided now is the time to fulfill your dream of being your own boss?
If so, there’s never been a better time to join the Outdoor Lighting Perspectives (OLP) family. With unparalleled support, we never require entrepreneurs to have a background in business or a formal degree. Instead, we’re looking for motivated men and women who are ready to embark on building a franchise business to reach their career, lifestyle, and financial goals.
Training and Support from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives
OLP is committed to supporting you and your goals, which is why we offer a proven brand name, lead generation, marketing support, technology platform, supply chain relationships, classroom and field training, ongoing franchise support, and an extensive franchise network or peers.
The power of a proven brand name.
Above all else, our clients want a business they can trust. Nowadays, the power of an established brand that has served thousands of homeowners across the country can’t be underestimated – and we have that. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives has installed over 100,000 landscape lighting systems across the U.S.
Lead generation — the heart of any business.
Any business, new or old, relies on leads. Here at OLP, we have a proven track record for lead generation. Since we opened our doors in the mid ‘90s, our system for lead generation has led to over $200 million of business — but our support doesn’t stop there.
We also give all of our franchisees access to lead gen best practices, including targeted direct mail, print advertising, online marketing, home and garden shows, referral marketing and guerrilla marketing strategies and tactics.
Marketing support that helps you succeed.
Because your success is our success, we have an entire department dedicated to helping you market your business. Over the years, we’ve helped franchisees with everything from creating an annual marketing plan to learning their area’s unique client demographics.
OLP’s state-of-the-art technology.
Today, reliable technology is the foundation of any successful business. As an OLP franchisee, you’ll have access to our proven field services platform that helps you track and manage everything from the initial customer call to their invoice. We also have programs to help you track inventory and manage daily work-flow.
Supply chain relationships.
As the largest landscape lighting company in the country, OLP has developed dedicated supply chain relationships that aggregate the system’s purchasing power to drive down cost of goods for franchisees, compared to local independent competitors, while ensuring consistent high-quality standards throughout the country. Our franchisees enjoy both a cost of goods advantage as well as access to some proprietary OLP fixtures.
Operations training and support.
While it all starts with marketing and lead generation, OLP franchisees also have access to full operational training – system design, sale, field installation, employee recruiting and management, and business management. Training starts with the Quick Start training program, initial classroom training, and continues on as each franchisee is assigned a business coach to assist them to learn the OLP business model and scale their operations in order to reach their personal goals for their business.
Work for yourself, never by yourself.
It’s been said many times that this is one of the biggest benefits of joining a franchise — the support of your fellow franchisees. With dozens of OLP franchisees across the country, you’re never far from people who have been in your position before. More importantly, they’re always eager to help.
With more than 100,000 installations completed, we know what it takes to do outdoor lighting right. No other company has more experience than Outdoor Lighting Perspectives. Learn more about the franchise opportunities we offer.
