Joining us brings immediate benefits in terms of brand name recognition and professionalism which helps bring more clients to your office. Our group strength also delivers a wide range of benefits that will give your business the very best foundation upon which you can build your success:
> Double the brand benefits
Our franchisees leverage the brand equity not only of the Greg Hocking name but also of their own name which forms part of the business logo eg John Holdsworth’s office at Albert Park is Greg Hocking Holdsworth. You’ll be able to preserve and capitalise on your own brand equity and professional reputation while carving out a territory that’s truly your own.
> Support and assistance every step of the way
When you become a Greg Hocking office we’re there to assist you every step of the way from helping to set up your office, ordering signage, establishing internal administration systems, printing and ordering stationery through an easy online portal, implementing standardised systems (MyDesktop CRM package, template letters, standard procedures). All our systems are tried and tested, set up and ready to go.
> Group buying power
We’ve done all the leg-work to negotiate serious discounts with a range of corporate suppliers such as Office Works and telco companies. We actively seek extra value on branded items through bulk purchasing and to secure significant discounts from businesses servicing the real estate sector.
> Professional design and advertising services
We’ve appointed a specialist advertising agency to create professional, tailored promotional marketing material for each office. The agency takes care of marketing materials including press advertising, online layouts, boards, custom brochures and our weekly magazine. As a group, this means our visual branding is professional and polished every time, reflecting the high levels of service we provide to our clients.
