Sports Image® Franchise for Sale

Sports Image Offering First Ever Sports Marketing Franchises

Sports Image has developed a unique program to help schools and organizations nationwide to get the equipment they so desperately need and, in the process, generate revenue streams for them -- and for Sports Image's franchisees -- for years to come!

FRANKLIN, OH, April 15, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A Sports Image franchise is a dream opportunity for anyone who loves sports, wants to help their community and desires all the benefits that come with business ownership.

Sports marketing is considered a glamorous profession by most people, and it's also a much-needed service throughout North America. As schools and organizations face massive budget deficits, one constant remains the same -- the athletic and grassroots programs are usually the first to get cut.

"We've developed a unique marketing program that helps schools, colleges, little leagues, park and recreation departments, churches, private events and organizations obtain the new equipment they so desperately need and, in the process, generate much needed revenue for these groups...all at no cost," said Eric Horstman, President of Sports Image. "We can also help manage elite national and local tournaments."

Founded in 2002, Sports Image has established relationships with sponsors, manufacturers and schools/organizations nationwide. The company has helped over 800 organizations get more than $750,000 in much needed cash and $8,000,000 in equipment for their athletic programs. In May 2009, Sports Image began offering large, exclusive territories for the nation's first sports marketing franchise.

"As a franchisee, you'll partner athletic programs with businesses," Horstman said. "You'll connect both parties into a mutually beneficial relationship that not only gives new equipment to the organizations, but also provides a revenue stream for them -- and you -- for years to come!"

Sports Image is a home-based business with low start-up costs, low overhead, recurring income and revenue streams, no inventory to carry, and huge potential. Franchisees offer sports marketing services to schools and organizations...for free. Who can turn that down?

"We have a history of success around the country as well as brand recognition, corporate sponsors, vendor relationships, registered trademarks and corporate buying power for all sorts of equipment," said Horstman. "This gives you the additional edge you need to be 'the' sports marketing guru in your territory."

No sports marketing experience is necessary. Franchisees receive a turnkey system that includes three days of comprehensive training at the corporate office, flyers, contracts, program strategies, marketing and other useful tools to create a successful business. They also receive ongoing support whenever needed and training via phone, email and site visits. Plus, franchisees can start and run quality events in their territory similar to Sports Image's Top Ranked national event, Flyin' to the Hoop (http://www.flyintothehoop.com).

"After completing the training program, you have the ability to immediately start making contacts and money," Horstman said. "With a Sports Image franchise, you spend your time building relationships and selling, not doing paperwork. You're not a slave to a desk, and you're helping out the communities in which you live."
