Questions

 

Yes we realise this is a big claim, however we are confident to make it for the following reasons…

  1. We’ve been running events for business owners since 2006 and during this time we have run more business events than anyone else in Australia.
  2. We have worked with over 250 entrepreneurs and subject matter experts and every presentation has been recorded – giving us Australia’s (possibly the world’s) largest library of business education resources.
  3. Unlike other courses that cover just one area of business, Business Blueprint is the most complete program in Australia. We have materials covering virtually every area of business. From marketing to technology, recruitment to cashflow management – you’ll find everything you need, all in one place.
  4. In addition we have produced over 654 step-by-step screen capture training videos. These cover the vast majority of web-based applications, social media platforms and productivity tools.
  5. To further assist our members we have invested over $100,000 to create over 175 pre-built systems. Our members then take these systems and add them to their business, saving them massive amounts of time and money.
  6. We were the first to introduce “Round Table Days” to our members, giving them direct access to hundreds of specialist mentors and subject matter experts – a model that has now been picked up and duplicated by others.
  7. Plus, as a business owner we know you can’t do everything yourself. That’s why we are the only company in Australia to have created the Virtual Assistant Training Academy™. Plus we also have a turn-key solution to help our clients hire offshore staff to reduce costs and dramatically increase productivity and profits.

Business Blueprint has been the catalyst for success for hundreds of business owners over the past 5 years.

Spend a moment looking at our success stories and you’ll see a multitude of examples where business owners have created huge improvements by applying the insights they’ve learnt at Business Blueprint.

Many have doubled or even tripled their profits. Others have created significant new and recurring sources of revenue.

And many have regained their spark, and loosened the business’s stranglehold on their life. This has allowed them to take regular holidays – sometimes for the first time in years.

Because of our track record of success, we’re confident that Business Blueprint offers massive value for anyone in business who’s open to new ideas, and who’s willing to roll their sleeves up and implement the ideas they’re exposed to in the program.

So, if you’re tired of constantly struggling and failing to get the results you deserve, Business Blueprint is the fast way to break through, and create meaningful and enduring success.

Absolutely. Our experience shows us there’s no one we can’t help.

While we recognise everyone’s business is different, we know there are core issues common to all. Challenges such as how to attract and convert new prospects, convert leads into customers, build great systems, create a strong online presence, become a better leader, and be more productive with your time (to name just a very small sample) are issues that affect everyone.

We’ve worked with more than 500 businesses across a huge variety of industries. These have ranged from micro businesses to businesses with more than 100 staff. It has also included all types of business contexts, from local, to global, online, offline and home businesses to name a few.

Yes it is. Many members of Business Blueprint have run their business for several decades, but they recognise they need to adopt new ideas to keep their business vibrant and growing.

They’re also looking for ways to leverage their time (and that of their team) and they’re hungry to learn ways to do this – all of which Business Blueprint offers.

It’s quite common for business people of many years’ standing to arrive in the program feeling like they’re on top of most concepts. And yet, time and time again, we hear them say they’re blown away by the insights and ideas that are revealed from their very first day.

The other big benefit is in the excitement they feel in learning about the latest tools and strategies that are touched on at the New Rules of Business event. When they see these ideas expanded upon at Business Blueprint – and how they can be applied in their business – it’s like they’re seeing their business through fresh eyes again.

And they take this energy and momentum back with them into their business, and it’s contagious. Because other members of staff can access all the wonderful tools and resources on offer, it becomes a shared journey of improvement – so the value is compounded.

Totally. In fact being a start-up means you get to embed world-class ideas in your business right from the start, so you really make the most of its potential.

If you think about it, without help, it’s easy to make a lot of mistakes that cost you plenty in terms of dollars and time. But with Business Blueprint, you have a proven recipe for success. It’s like making a cake. With a recipe, you’re much more likely to create something perfect first go. But without one, you may end up with disappointing results (or worse, needing to start all over).

In short, Business Blueprint helps you shave years off the learning curve, possibly saving you hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Another point to make is that many people’s starting point is their formal education. But this is predominantly designed for people intending to work in a big corporate structure.

Institutions are also typically slow in adopting new technologies.

But that’s what makes Business Blueprint unique. We’re constantly researching cutting edge business ideas, and incorporating the very best into our program.

We nurture and support your entrepreneurial spark, helping you to embed smart ideas into your business from the start.

There several levels of membership, and you can save by paying a one-off annual fee, or you can spread your payments across the year by paying monthly.

Contact us for full details on 1300 782 734 (within Australia) or +61 2 8919 2300 (outside Australia) or by email at [email protected], and a member of the Business Blueprint team will be in touch to assist.

Yes we do. You can choose to pay via a monthly instalment.

We recommend you speak with your accountant, however if you are using the knowledge you’ll gain to run and grow your business, then most likely, the answer will be yes.

Yes. We have had many international members and we can offer special packages for people outside Australia and New Zealand.

You can choose to attend the live events, or – since each event is recorded – you can also view them online. And of course you can access all of the webinars and Business Blueprint resources via the internet.

And as a member of Business Blueprint, your consultant is available to answer questions and discuss your plans via phone, Skype or email.

We know from experience that members who actively participate in the program, and implement the ideas and strategies they gain, create powerful and sustained improvements in their business.

So we know our program works.

But at the end of the day, it’s up to you whether you step up and take the actions you learn about to create meaningful change in your business.

And because making this happen is ultimately in your hands, we do not offer a money back guarantee.

However from the moment you join, you do start to reap the rewards. You receive a personal call from a Business Blueprint consultant who will help you clarify the current challenges you face and the goals you’d like to achieve. They will also help you identify how you can get some quick wins to start creating the transformations you’re seeking.

You also gain immediate access to our complete library – from training videos, templates, webinars and recordings of past events (to name just a few of the hundreds of valuable resources on offer).

This means from Day One, you have access to all our intellectual property, which you are free to share with other members of staff on your team.

There is untold value in this information – and you can begin to apply the insights and tools straight away.

And because this is all available to you from the very start, it is not possible for us to offer a money back guarantee.

Before applying to join Business Blueprint, we recommend you seriously consider how committed you are to creating and embracing change in your business. If you’re ready to step up and apply what you’ll learn, we’re confident you’ll fast track your success in a similar way to those who have gone before you.

Many members have generated 6 or even 7 figures in additional revenue in their first year of the program by applying the knowledge they gain.

However the value typically compounds in the years that follow.

Business Blueprint helps you create a robust and agile platform for ongoing success. By implementing the ideas and insights you learn, you’ll ingrain smart practices and thinking in your business that you will continue to leverage in the years to come.

In short, the sky’s the limit. It’s really up to you how actively you deploy the tools and strategies that are presented to you.

Business Blueprint is a program that definitely lives by the motto, ‘the more you put in, the more you get out’.

To get maximum value from the program, you really do need to prioritise it by setting aside time in your diary.

We recommend you dedicate at least two hours each week to learning and/or applying the principles you learn. Perhaps you may wish to watch two videos or listen to an audio from our extensive library of interesting presentations? You can download it to a mobile device so you can listen while you drive or exercise. We recognise you’re busy so we want to help you to be as smart with your time as possible.

One of the practical ways we help you is by showing you how to hire a virtual assistant. We do this early in the peace because you don’t need to do everything yourself. Once you are freed up in this way, you’ll multiply your effectiveness and you’ll find your progress starts to skyrocket.

To get benefit from Business Blueprint, you do need to have something to apply it to.

So if you don’t have an idea for your business yet, then it’s best to wait until you do.

But once you do have your idea, it doesn’t have to be fully formed to get value from the program. You can stress test your idea with other Blueprint members and get valuable market feedback. Armed with this knowledge, you’ll know whether to continue with your original plan, modify it, or pivot to something even better.

At Business Blueprint, we know our success is tied to your success. This means we want you to achieve everything you can. We’re passionate, involved, friendly and caring – something members regularly compliment us on.

From the very start, we want to get to know you. We want to understand exactly what you want to attain in your business and in your life. We want to know what challenges you face – and more importantly – we want to equip you with tools and ideas so you can leverage as much value as possible from the program.

With some other programs, it’s really difficult to speak with a program leader if you have problems in between events.

But at Business Blueprint, we don’t sit in an ivory tower. You are allocated a consultant who takes a personal interest in your journey. They can assist with any questions or talk over any concerns you have about your business.

We actively encourage you to reach out and get your questions answered so you can power through any obstacles and accomplish all your goals.

All live events are held in Sydney at the Australian Technology Park in Eveleigh.

This is a fabulous venue that combines beautiful heritage architecture, premium commercial space and state-of-the-art conference facilities.

It’s close to public transport and car park facilities.

There’s also a variety of good cafés, restaurants and pubs in the vicinity for post event catch-ups.

If you’re travelling from interstate or overseas, we can give you advice regarding accommodation and fun things to do in and around the area.

Only members of Business Blueprint can attend the live events. Otherwise, we would have thousands of people coming along and we’d lose the personal connection.

Typically our members are business owners. But if you would like a second person to attend from your business, please contact us for our special discounted rate.

We know it would be challenging to single-handedly implement all the strategies you’ll learn about. So for this reason, we give you – along with all employees on your team – full access to the private my.businessblueprint.com website. Through it, 500+ training videos on a huge variety of important business functions can be viewed at any time throughout your membership.

This allows you to share the knowledge with your team, ingrain smarter practices across the business and get high quality results faster.

If you think about it, your membership in Business Blueprint is equivalent to around 20% of the cost of just one team member. Compare this with the cost of sending individuals off to separate courses on the topics covered by our videos. (The list includes how to use search engine optimization, keyword research, e-commerce, mobile marketing, outsourcing, video marketing and social media – to name just a handful of what’s covered.)

And the beauty of Business Blueprint is that you can revisit the videos as often as needed. By being at your fingertips, training is accessible, making the ‘doing’ more efficient and consistent. This contrasts very favourably with attending one-off training courses, where the content can be forgotten once the gloss wears off.

Please note, these resources are not for family or friends – they’ve been developed exclusively for Business Blueprint members and their staff.

Yes, but you must be working together on the same business. This opportunity only applies to life partners and business partners operating the same business.

For information about our special pricing for partners, contact us on 1300 782 734 (within Australia) or +61 2 8919 2300 (outside Australia) or by email at [email protected], and a member of the Business Blueprint team will be in touch to assist.

Our video library condenses and simplifies training on more than 500 essential business topics. We don’t believe there is a similar resource like it anywhere else in the world.

The content is huge and it’s truly cutting edge. We’ve deliberately developed videos that explain concepts and topics that are not routinely covered in other business building courses.

So even if you only watch 10% of what’s on offer, you’ll still gain incredible value. Think of them like an ‘all you can eat buffet’. It’s up to you to pick and choose the information that’s most relevant to your business right now.

And of course the videos can be viewed by any member of your staff, so the person the topic is relevant to can watch it.

Similarly, if you employ a virtual assistant you can ask them to watch the video and implement what’s covered.

Having such a huge pool of resources in the form of our training video library – and by making it available to your team or virtual assistant – lets you substantially boost the productivity and capability of your business.

We create the calendar 12 months out, so hopefully this gives you enough notice so you don’t miss out.

But if you do find you cannot attend, each event is recorded so you can view it from the comfort of your home or workplace. It is available online shortly after the event, and you can view it anytime during your membership.

It is recorded in video and audio format, so you can download it to a mobile device and watch or listen when it’s most convenient for you.

There are a few ways you can seek help. Many people enjoy using the dedicated Facebook group page to pose a question. With hundreds of members, you have ready access to a huge number of motivated business owners from a variety of industries. This means you can access advice and feedback – often from specialists in the field your question relates to. And as it’s a very engaged community, you’ll mostly receive an instant response.

And of course you also have access to your dedicated Business Blueprint Consultant. You can phone or email and you’ll hear back within two working days.

Yes, we have a whole system to support you in this.

This includes step-by-step detailed training videos, covering topics such as what questions to ask, as well as tools such as contract and confidentiality agreement templates, and suggestions for the best software tools etc to ensure the relationship is as mutually productive as possible.

Yes we do. Once you become a Business Blueprint member, we will show you how people you refer also benefit from your introduction.

In short, you and the people you introduce each benefit from the introduction. Everyone wins.

Yes, we can put you in contact with a current member of Business Blueprint.

Let us know what industry you’re in and also the questions you have, and we will put the two of you in touch.

The reason for this is that it takes 12 months to learn and implement the ideas you’ll learn in your business. Unfortunately there is no magic wand we can wave. However you’ll find results start coming your way incrementally when you commit a few hours each week to implementing it.

You can, of course, fast track your success by using the services of a virtual assistant or by enlisting your team to help with implementation.

Our experience shows that 12 months is a reasonable time frame to achieve many significant wins, and to see a transformation in your business (and your life too).

You can stop your membership after 12 months, however most people choose to continue into year 2 and beyond.

They do this because they learn and apply so much in that first year, that they really begin to take the business to another whole level in year 2.

For members in year 2 and beyond, you automatically become an elite member, giving you access to VIP pricing. You’ll learn more closer to the time so you can make the decision whether it’s right for you.

Congratulations! You’re about to begin a journey that will not only transform your business, but also your life.

We look forward to getting to know you personally and shining a light on what’s possible for you to achieve.

If you have any questions, or you’d like to know more about the different membership levels, please speak with a Business Blueprint consultant.
