Earlier this year, the Archadeck support team launched a new financing program with our valued partners at LightStream to help franchisees increase sales in their local markets. LightStream has a fantastic loan program called the “Anything Loan” for homeowners interested in upgrading their outdoor space with one of Archadeck’s amazing projects. For consumers with good to excellent credit they are able to get the financing they need for their outdoor project with interest rates as low as 4.99% APR. But the real icing on the cake is the quick turnaround for loan approval. Consumers are actually able to find out in mere minutes if they have been approved during business hours and to top it off LightStream ensures that the consumers will have the best loan experience and back that with a $100 guarantee.
This new program is certainly doing its part to help increase System sales and we continue to encourage all Archadeck franchisees to consider promoting the new financing tool to their clients. The new tool may help boost your sales in a number of ways. First, it allows consumers to access the funds they need to move forward with a project now, instead of having to wait. Second, it increases the average project value of the jobs by allowing consumers to move forward with their “dream project”, rather than scaling things back or electing to build it in stages.
To help franchisees our marketing department and support teams have mailed copies of new created brochures that discuss the benefits of the “Anything Loan” as well as adding a new Financing tab on the national website. Our team also has spent time explaining and educating our franchisees on the best ways to use the new tool and how to add the discussion into their sales process. Rob Haislip (VP of Operations) and Spencer Monroe (Director of Field Support) have also spent time reaching out to franchisees to discuss best practices and make sure that all Archadeck franchisees fully understand and feel comfortable presenting the “Anything Loan” to their consumers.
We look forward to seeing the success and growth continue with our new partnership. To learn more about the “Anything Loan” or to apply please visit www.lightstream.com/archadeck or call your local Archadeck office today!
