If you have a will, your assets will benefit the ones you love after your death. But nearly two-thirds of UK adults don’t have one because nobody likes to think about this inevitability. Maplebrook Wills is a network of will writers providing wills and related financial services. Estate planning is a recession-proof industry where it’s surprisingly easy to develop a business bringing in six figures every year while also providing a vital service.
Writing a will is rarely the end of Maplebrook’s business relationships with clients. Because of its friendly and professional approach, Maplebrook frequently identifies other services they might need. Those additional services include trusts, probate, lasting powers of attorney, and funeral plans. When you help provide these extras, directly or indirectly, you can boost your income by up to 40 per cent.
Launched as a franchise business in 2018 by award-winning will writer Mike Pugh, Maplebrook has attracted a team of experts in the industry. Its Zendesk software provides almost instantaneous support and guidance from senior will writers and STEP-qualified solicitors with decades of experience, meaning you need not be concerned about estate size or complexity.
Managing clients can be a full-time job, which is why franchisees use the Maplebrook EDGE to run their business. This custom-built software platform was specifically designed for estate planners – it helps capture leads, move them through the client journey, draft legal documents, and never forget a call or appointment. EDGE also handles pre- and post-meeting admin functions, such as terms of business, invoicing and payments. This enables you to spend more time building your client base and less time worrying about paperwork. There is nothing like the Maplebrook EDGE in the industry.
The Maplebrook Wills franchise offers you two entry levels to choose from – silver and gold. While these packages differ in cost, there are many benefits included in both:
• Full professional will-writing training
• Lasting powers of attorney training
• Basic trusts training
• EDGE systems training and support
• My.Maplebrook knowledge base
Professional site advice on operational and marketing startup
• Attestation kit: everything you will need to produce quality legal documents
Maplebrook Wills is looking for motivated individuals who want to develop a successful business while also helping local people with a service everyone needs. You don’t need a legal background or any formal qualifications, but excellent written and verbal communication skills and some sales experience will help.
