Postal Connections® franchisees are as diverse as the services the brand offers, and come from many different career and life backgrounds. However, all franchisees have in common the desire to discover within themselves a budding entrepreneur who provides their communities with top-notch business services.
Meet Rick Martin – Rick owns a Postal Connections that has iSOLD It® on ebay services inside his store. With a background in insurance and social services, Rick knew that he wanted to get into a franchise specializing in business services. Customer-focused, Rick’s strategy involves building lasting relationships with customers, helping them with shipping, mail receiving service, printing and selling different items on eBay, Amazon and other online marketplaces. He sells a wide variety of items, but has the most success with unique bicycles.
iSOLD It is a comprehensive system for providing consumers and businesses with the easy way to sell on eBay. Rick uses the iSOLD It sales system to evaluate what will sell, seek the best price, list and work with buyers to sell customer items. The system enables Rick to sell on eBay, Amazon, Craig’s List and other online marketplaces. And iSOLD It fits nicely into his Postal Connections service store.
“The two concepts are so complementary – and having both streams of revenue in the same place allows me to keep my costs low while offering an increased variety of services,” said Rick. “My focus is always on the customer, and they love having access to both sets of services under the same roof.”
