Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do I need any previous experience in the publishing business?
A. Absolutely not! We provide all of the training you need to operate your own Natural Awakenings business. The most important requirements you bring are a genuine desire and drive to own your own business. However, we do prefer franchisees that have previous sales experience.
Q. How many people will I need on my staff?
A. The Natural Awakenings franchise system was created to simplify and provide a turnkey process of creating the magazine. You will be trained. NA PC provides much of the shared service support and selection of trained preferred vendors to assist with various and creative processes—editorial, magazine layout, ad design, maeketing and social media. Also, depending on your desired volume of sales, you may choose to contract with one or more independent sales people.
Q. What additional equipment do I need to purchase or lease?
A. Most people already have everything necessary to manage a Natural Awakenings business—a basic computer system, an all-in-one printer and phone service. You will need to purchase a supply of standard magazine racks for placement at your distribution locations.
Q. How much retail space will I need?
A. None. The most attractive benefit of the Natural Awakening's franchise program is that you can operate from your own home! There are no major building improvements, renovations or leases required.
Q. Once I’ve signed the franchise agreement, how long will it take me to open my business?
A. It usually takes 90 to 120 days. During this period, you will attend a comprehensive training session, establish your business format, obtain your business license, open your business checking account and complete the other items on a “pre-opening checklist” that is provided to you.
Q: What areas are available for franchising?
A: We are always looking to expand into new markets that we do not yet have our magazine in, and occasionally we have some select existing markets available for resale. We typically franchise in areas that are populated with at least 500,000 people. To learn more about available markets, visit our Franchise Availability page.
