When speaking with candidates on the phone, speak clearly and project your voice in a courteous and friendly tone. This decreases the chances of miscommunication of important information. Remember to be consistent with your voice, as any inconsistencies can create confusion and make it difficult for candidates to understand you.

While voicemail is an often-overlooked aspect of communication in today’s digital world, you should still adhere to voicemail best practices. For example, don’t let your voicemail get full and check it often. Promptly responding to communications (emails, texts, phone calls) shows you care and makes the process go more smoothly for all involved. To make efficient use of your time, ask candidates how they wish to be contacted: phone call, text, or email.

Great Franchise Consultants actively listen when someone is speaking to them. To be an active listener, make eye contact with the speaker and repeat back key information throughout the conversation to ensure the candidate knows you're paying attention. This will make the candidate feel heard and appreciated.

The old adage of “dress to impress” still stands today. While Franchise Consultants generally work from home, it doesn't mean they should work in pajamas or sweatpants. When you dress professionally, candidates know that you mean business and take pride in your appearance. Investing in a franchise can be a big, life-changing experience. The best franchise business consultants are empathetic and understanding of what candidates are experiencing.

Candidates don’t want to work with someone who isn’t engaged and seemingly doesn’t have their best interests in mind. To ensure candidates feel supported and that their best interests are being considered, a great Franchise Consultant should be genuinely engaged in the process. This means being responsive to inquiries, providing timely updates, and actively seeking opportunities that align with the candidate's goals and aspirations. By demonstrating dedication to helping candidates make the best possible decisions, Franchise Consultants can build trust and establish a strong rapport.
