View site directory Get Started - The Evaluation


A business should be researched thoroughly prior to making an investment decision.  Studying informational materials and asking questions is a good start, but it's not enough.  A face-to-face meeting with the business seller has traditionally been the best next step.  However, the time and travel cost for such a meeting is often significant, plus there's going to be some bias in the information you receive.  In contrast, IdeaVision offers a unique evaluation approach that will save you a lot of time and money, while providing you with the detailed and independent information you need to make a good decision.

IdeaVision qualifies candidates for the Visionair Builder business in a unique way.  Prospective business owners participate in an evaluation program at their own location to learn about the business in detail and research their local market.  A decision on whether or not to invest in the business is made by the candidate based on their evaluation results.  The program identifies those who hold a strong belief in the business and are committed to being successful with it.


Become a Candidate

Read about the business, ask questions and discuss it as much as you like.  The next step is to enroll in the evaluation program.

The evaluation is an enjoyable process that you complete in your spare time without any pressure or risk.  A 30-day period is allocated so that you'll have plenty of time to complete the evaluation.  Thus, you can get started right away to determine if the business is right for you.  If the decision is yes, you're now prepared to smoothly transition into the subsequent licensing, training and kickoff phase of your business.


What You'll Learn

The evaluation program consists of self-paced activities that you perform at your location to quantify all aspects of the business.  The program provides an organized, step-by-step approach to help you:

  1. Learn how the visualization process works
  2. Research the local market
  3. Get feedback from potential clients
  4. Forecast market share and sales volume
  5. Estimate administrative and operating expenses
  6. Project income for the first three years
  7. Prepare startup plans
  8. Make an informed investment decision

Materials Provided

An Evaluation Kit, consisting of key business documentation, software tools and support from the actual business package, is provided to guide you through these activities. The following items are included:

Evaluation Guide Step-by-step instructions for researching your local market and calculating the expected return from your business
Imaging Portfolio Full color, "Before" and "After" visualizations from real projects to help you obtain feedback from potential clients and others involved in the decision process
Imaging System Operational version of the actual Visionair Builder imaging software to help you understand the visualization process (see Imaging System for computer requirements)
System Operation Manual Detailed instructions, tutorial and reference materials for using the imaging system
Support Comprehensive technical and business planning assistance via phone or e-mail

Benefits

Our highly regarded program is appreciated by business opportunity seekers who are rarely given an opportunity to explore the ins and outs of a business beforehand.  It's the right way to get started:

  • Learn at your own pace in a relaxed environment
  • Gain experience while continuing other activities
  • Familiarize yourself with the visualization process
  • Review your ideas with potential clients
  • Develop realistic business financial projections
  • Involve family and associates in the decision process
  • "Test" IdeaVision's support and customer focus
  • Make the best decision possible

Evaluation Fee - A Shared Investment

IdeaVision shares the cost of the program with you, the way a good partnership should be.  As a result, your evaluation fee is only $125, plus a $75 refundable deposit on the Evaluation Kit ($200 total).  If you decide to start the business, this amount is deducted from the license fee so there is effectively no cost for the evaluation.

IdeaVision is willing to invest in you if you're a serious candidate.  The question is whether you're willing to invest a small amount in yourself?  The answer for the owners of our existing businesses was clearly yes, as each and every one of them started this way.

Payment is typically charged to Visa or MasterCard, which gives you convenience and full protection for the transaction.  All figures are in US Dollars.  Shipping is included within the US (an additional $10 to Canada).

It's unreasonable to expect that you can research a serious business without investing your own time and money.  It's a small amount to pay for the rare opportunity to experience a business beforehand.  You'll be hard pressed to find a lower risk or lower cost way to get started with a business. 

Most businesses require a full investment and signed agreement up front before you can see the detailed operation.  In contrast, you can begin exploring the Visionair Builder business firsthand by paying only a fee to cover the cost of providing the evaluation program.

If you choose not to start the business, simply return the evaluation materials in their original condition and the $75 deposit is promptly refunded.  In this case, the evaluation cost was a smart investment to help you make the right decision for your situation.  There is absolutely no obligation or pressure to continue.


How to Enroll  

The quickest way to enroll in the program is to call IdeaVision directly at 321-250-4800.  If you prefer, you may request a call from IdeaVision instead by completing the information form.  (Frequent questions are addressed at the end of this page if you would like to view them first.)

Enrollment is done by phone to answer your questions and ensure that the business fits your needs before time and money is committed to the evaluation.  The availability of your desired location is also verified.  The Evaluation Kit ships the next business day after enrolling, with a delivery time of 2-3 days to most locations in the continental US (5-7 days in Canada).


Holding Back?

Don't let concerns hold you back from a good opportunity.  If you have concerns, then call to discuss them.  Researching a business requires more than reading web pages and sending e-mails.

Some may also have to come to grips with the requirement to invest both time and money to research a business fully.  Large business deals require a huge expense to pay a team of experts.   Don't hold back because someone wrote that you shouldn't pay for information or to evaluate a business or whatever form this comment comes in.


The bottom line...

It just makes good sense to spend a small amount of time and money up front to make the best investment decision possible.  Successful investments are made through knowledge and proper planning, not fancy seminars or sales pitches.  Enrolling in the evaluation program is the right way to get started on making an informed decision.

 



Frequent Questions
  • How long do I need to spend on the evaluation?

    The evaluation typically requires 16-24 hours of cumulative time to complete.  However, you can easily break up the time into small increments throughout the evaluation period, whenever it's best for you.
     
  • How firm is the 30-day period?

    Most people find that the 30-day period is sufficient to work in the evaluation along with their normal activities.  However, the period can be extended if additional time is needed due to unforeseen events, vacation / business trips, a desire to do more research, or for other reasonable requests.  Thus, you don't need to hold off just because you're not sure what will happen during the next month.  The intent is to give you enough time to complete the evaluation to your full satisfaction.
     
  • When is the best time to start?

    All businesses require time to get up and running.  As such, don't wait until you want your business to be fully operational and generating income for you.  Ideally, plan to kick off your business at least a couple of months ahead of time (the more time the better).  Include another month prior to the desired startup to complete your evaluation, which is structured as a lead in to the business itself.
     
  • Does a part-time startup make sense?

    Most startup tasks can be done in your spare time without impacting current employment or other activities.  As a result, a part-time startup is a good approach for anyone who would like to maintain their current income source.  This strategy provides for an orderly, low-stress startup.  It gives you time to promote your business and do smart things that benefit your business in the long run.
     
  • What impact do territory considerations have?

    It's impossible to know when someone else will come along who is interested in your area.  Location requests are frequently turned down because a certain territory has been taken.  Thus, the risk of delaying the start of your evaluation and business should be factored into your planning.  One important benefit of the evaluation program is that it gives you first rights to an available territory during your evaluation period.
     
  • Why is a fee charged?

    IdeaVision offers the evaluation program to help serious candidates learn as much as possible about the business so that they can make an informed decision.  The fee covers a portion of the expenses incurred by IdeaVision to support the program, thus making the program possible.  In this regard, we strongly discourage participation by anyone who has a motive other than to consider investing in the Visionair Builder business.
     
  • How does the deposit refund work?

    If you decide not to start the business, you may return the Evaluation Kit to receive a refund for your $75 deposit.  Upon receipt, your refund is typically processed within one business day.  An e-mail confirmation is sent to notify you of the refund.  If you paid by charge card, the deposit is credited back to the same card.  Your account balance should reflect this transaction within 2-3 business days.  If you paid by any other method, you will receive a refund check.
     
  • What will I be able to do with the imaging software?

    The actual imaging system is provided to help you attain a basic understanding of the visualization process.  A hands-on tutorial and demo have been specially created for this purpose.

    Formal training is required to learn the advanced operation of the system.  Thus, you shouldn't expect to do actual projects at this stage.  Instead, you're encouraged to focus your available time on researching the business potential for your market so that you can make a good investment decision.  The evaluation isn't intended to be a software trial, nor does it make any sense to treat it as such.
     
  • How much pressure is there to make a decision?

    The intent of the evaluation is to let you make an independent decision.  As such, there are no pressure sales calls or other attempts to sway your decision.  We'll gladly answer any questions that you have and provide information to assist you at the appropriate times, but will otherwise leave you alone.

    If your decision is no, we'll thank you for your participation and promptly refund your deposit.  This approach is in everyone's best interest.  It ensures that you'll be able to make an independent and unbiased decision, which in turn provides IdeaVision with a strong team of business owners to carry the business forward.
