A Day in the Life of an OLP Franchise

From Designing and Installing to Marketing and Leading, You’ll Never Be Bored Running Your Own Lighting Business!

Tired of the same ol’ same ol’? Do you like changing up your routine? If you’re equally skilled in the field and at the desk, then being an OLP franchise owner might be right for you. Our owners are always up to something different. One day they’re consulting on a stunning new design with a homeowner, the next they’re networking with industry peers. While no two days are alike, there are several tasks you’ll handle regularly.

A standard day in the life of our franchisees includes:

Planning for the Day

You’ll meet with your installation team to prioritize projects, go over the day’s schedule and address any housekeeping items.

Discuss Goals

Present your daily, weekly and monthly goals and game-plan how you’ll meet or exceed them.

Check Inventory

Take stock of your fixtures, tools and equipment to ensure you’ll have everything needed to complete upcoming jobs.

Follow Up on Emails, Phone Calls

You’ll respond to requests for estimates, finalize marketing plans with OLP’s support team, correspond with vendors and more.

Develop Proposals

Detail for clients what jobs you’ll do, how you’ll do them and include cost estimates and timelines.

Conduct Lighting Design Consultations

Help bring your clients’ visions to fruition and work within their budgets by presenting OLP’s world-class solutions.

Have Lunch with a Trade Alliance Partner

Get together with builders, architects and pool installers to explore cross-marketing opportunities.

Review the Marketing Plan Weekly

Look at what’s working and what isn’t and fine-tune your marketing efforts to generate more leads.

Check on the Install Team at the Job Site

Conduct quality control to ensure the project is going smoothly and your crew is on pace.
