How to start a bookkeeping business with Program Ignition!

Have you every wanted to learn how to start a bookkeeping business? Owning your own business is hard, and the more support and help you having getting started, the better. One of the most difficult parts of starting your own accounting business is building a client base. This involves marketing and trying to build your brand, which is expensive, time-consuming, and not always productive if you are on your own. With Ignite Spot's franchise program, Program Ignition, you get all the help and support your need, along with a built-in client base.

Yeah, yeah, I hear you. It has to cost a fortune, right? Wrong. Well, comparatively speaking, the franchise fees for Program Ignition are much lower than other small business accounting franchises, and you get way more. For an initial investment of $10,000, we get to work finding clients for you. Yep. You pay us and then sit back while we find clients for you. Not only that, we take care of those clients until you are fully trained and set up, ready to take over their books. You'll learn how to start a bookkeeping business, get all the tools you need, and get paying clients. It doesn't get any better than that.

Our goal is to build you a client base that will produce $5,000 of monthly recurring income. Once that is done, we let you know your base has been built and you pay us the remaining $15,000 franchise fee. With that, we fly you to our offices, train you on our systems, and set you up with everything you need to get started from a new laptop to a nice desk and chair. Once you are ready, we hand those clients we have been taking care of for you over, and you are off. During your training period, we are also splitting the fees from your soon-to-be clients with you, 60/40.

If for some reason we do not meet our goal of a $5,000 per month recurring income, anywhere from 5 to 10 clients typically, you have a couple of options. You can either stick it out and work with what we have, building from there, or we keep taking care of them and split the fees with you under the same 60/ 40 deal until your initial $10,000 investment has been paid back. Yes, you heard that right. If it does not work out like you hoped, you get your money back!


Basically, as a small business owner you have nothing to lose. You are going to invest money in your business anyway, and by investing with us you are relieved of the pressure of advertising and marketing. After you are off and running, we take a pretty standard monthly franchise fee of 8%, but we reinvest 2% of it into marketing for you. And we are not done there. You can call us anytime with questions or for support. We want your business to be successful, so we are successful. You'll no longer be asking how to start a bookkeeping business. Instead, you'll be busy growing your company.

If you are an accountant wanting to start your own business, Program Ignition is a great deal. We hand you everything you need for your business, including clients, and you do your job well and make us look good. It is a win win situation at virtually no risk on your end. Either we do what we say, or you get the option to get your money back over time, with no loss to you. Who's in?
