Tomorrow I am off to the Business Wealth Club Oxford. As you probably know we have been going to the club in Oxford for nearly two years now, it is a business breakfast club which also has the element of teaching you stuff to help you work on your
business rather than in it. My wife is leaving the house at 0515 to pick someone up in Cotswold Water Park and then give them a lift to Oxford for the start of the meeting at 0730. I’m going to drop my son off at school and then drive to Oxford to get there for 0930. Tomorrow is Marketing Mastery workshop starting at 0930 to 1230. So will be interesting. Currently I am implementing a lot of stuff which I have been meaning to do for a while, generally around optimising the main OvenGleamers site, getting rid of the rubbish and making sure the copy is better and also I am running more video ads on YouTube. So any additional help in the direction is going to be good.
As we go to Oxford every two weeks for the club we have started picking up work in Oxford! It’s a bit far for us to go to clean ovens – we need a franchisee so if you know anyone… , but I may do them myself for the foreseable furture as I don’t mind if we can get the work. This week I am going to be in Abingdon on Friday too to clean a four oven AGA and I will also be doing a refurbishment on the temperature gauge which we now carry. We have started doing refurbishment of AGAs. I am going to be trialling it and then will be running courses to get the franchisees up to speed. We intend to do lid inners replacement, rope replacement, chrome dome replacement and inner door replacement, along with the thermometer replacement and badge replacement (Classic oval plastic AGA badge for the the rectangle badge which are of poor quality and lose their black paint with a wipe of a cloth). Also I am looking at carrying oven racks and kettles. There is a reasonable margin in them.
