The first order of the day, of course, will be to understand what a turnkey business is. A turnkey business is a business that van be easily replicated. It is a business that is built on proven and tested methods and strategies. For example, someone starts a business.
And over time and with experience, figures out the things that work and things that do not. With this experience, he creates a system. This system comprises of all the do’s and do nots that make a business successful.
It is a business model that tells you exactly what to do and and how. Therefore, a turnkey business can be easily copied and replicated by another person for predictable and successful results.
Many woodworkers, over the course of time develop their own method of working. You may have in fact created your own successful business model. If you haven’t then you certainly can by doing several things like research, experimenting etc. It’s probably going to take some time before you’ve got things pat down.
The reason why we are talking about a turnkey business is that there is one such model that has come to our attention.
- A woodworker, who says he has poured in more than 30 years of his working experience, has created this model. His model consists of explaining about the woodworking business, such as how to get started, how to save money with tools and material and other such details.
- He then includes information about what he does to make his business a successful home based setup. This includes all the woodcrafts he makes and sells.
- The premise of this woodworking business is that you can make a great income by making small and easy projects in your wood shop, as long as you choose projects that are high in demand and popular.
Easy woodcrafts take less time so you can make more of them. Since they are high in demand, you can sell more of them. Therefore, it’s a profitable system.
