The Bachelors’ Club - Jack’s Curated Business Idea - Jack Lookman

 



Hello, greetings to one and all. Welcome to Jack’s Curated Business Ideas. Today's topic is 

The Bachelors’ Club.



Some marriages fail, because expectations are not fully managed. Many fail due to lack of preparedness. Meanwhile, others fail due to the wrong mindset, and some, due to incompatibility.

With this business model, we intend to proactively groom bachelors for marriage. 

It will be a user-led online activity where different aspects of marriage will be explored; professionals will facilitate the process and experienced husbands will be involved. Also, newly-weds and potential husbands will be involved. 

Rather than impose what is right or wrong on the client, the idea is to explore rhetorical questions and then allow the potential husbands make individual conclusions.


1. Value Proposition


We shall be proactively helping adult males make informed decisions on marriage by leveraging the internet.


2. Process


You can create your curriculum, do marketing, arrange meetings, send reminders to attendees and semi-automate processes. 

Also, you can have your rules and regulations, sort out legalities, articulate discussion points, moderate meetings, signpost your audience to more content and mentors, give homework to your attendees and have a registration process in place.


3. Number of Participants


Each session can have up to five to ten clients depending on your judgment call. This could be more manageable and more effective, enabling a personal touch. Depending on the topic at hand and logistics, a professional, experienced husband or recent husband may be in attendance, individually or collectively.


4. Curriculum


This shall include the full range, from pre-marriage, marriage, to post-marriage. It shall also include parenting, spirituality, case studies, sexual issues, in-laws, sickness, death, etc.

12. What problem are you solving?

 

You will help reduce the rate of divorces and help educate men on intricacies of marriage. You shall add value to society, to marriages, to the marriage institution, and reduce marital conflict.


13. Profit Sharing Formula


A profit-sharing formula app could be used for effective, fair and just profit sharing among business stakeholders. The team will share profits based on agreed criteria and the profit-sharing formula app tracks this effectively.


14. Funding


The business model is not expected to be costly; the stakeholders could finance the business or get outsiders to finance it. The profit-sharing formula app could be used in effecting fair sharing of profits. Funding could be got through crowdfunding, stakeholder funding, investors, bank loan, or loan from family and friends, etc.

24. Disclaimer


This is just a business idea and not and an end in itself. You need to perfect it to suit your business objectives.  


25. Value Chain


These include content creation, marketing, knowledge dissemination, blogging, book authoring, content marketing, brainstorming, etc.


26. Legalities


You need to put legalities in place. In addition to the refund policy, you need to include terms and conditions, disclaimers, legal agreements or contracts, with all related parties. These include  with clients, stakeholders and any other related third parties.


27. What is your product or service?


In simple understandable language, it is an organised set of online sessions, where adult men are counselled and educated on marriage and its pros and cons so that they can make informed decision before embarking on the journey of marriage.


28. Can this business be scaled?


I think it can. You could replicate the business model to different niches. For example, the same model can be replicated for spinsters, Muslims, Christians, other religious groups, and other demographics. It could be for different age demographics, cultures, ethnicities, countries and diasporas. 

You could also have a franchise.


29. Income Streams


These could include books, online content, premium products and services, as well as 1 to 1 sessions. As well as membership sites, blogs, affiliate marketing, podcast, adverts on your platforms, social media channels, mentoring, dating websites, gift service, grooming of bachelors, grooming of spinsters, optimal job search services, and income optimisation opportunities.

After all, if you are going to be a husband, you need to have a good income to support the family. 

As a business, you could offer this as a service, collaborate with others, or include Affiliate Marketing  links on your platforms. You could also delve into content and related services on parental skills, etc.


30. Perks



As perks to your clients, you could offer discounts on products and services; you could make them affiliate marketers of your products and services and give them generous commissions. 

For those who perform exceptionally; you could offer them additional perks such as free complementary products and services, or give additional discounts, or  you could collaborate with them. 


31. Exit strategy for Clients


They could terminate the engagement at any point and they could give notice or not, depending on the contract they signed. They may get a refund, if your  policy permits. Also, they could assign their unused product and services to relevant others or come to an agreement with you on this.


32. Exit Strategy for Stakeholders


The profit-sharing formula app probably addresses this. Alternatively, the related legal documents could  address it. 

All documents or agreements could be amended as necessary. 

If the agreement does not effectively address the issue, there shall be mutual and fair agreement on the resolution. Or you might involve a conflict resolution agent to mediate. 

The agreement could then be updated accordingly, to avoid a repeat scenario.
