Hundreds of thousands of aspiring franchisees from around the country are looking to get more involved with the Apple brand—and for good reason. Apple’s annual revenue tops $200 billion, and the company’s brand value is arguably unmatched.
Although Apple maintains strict control over its 475 Apple retail stores dotted around the world—all of which are company-owned establishments—there are still ways for you to ride the crest of Apple’s brand value.
Become an Apple Authorized Reseller
Becoming an Apple Authorized Reseller (AAR for short) means that you’ll be a business partner after having entered a contract with Apple, Inc.
You might be wondering: what do Apple Authorized Resellers actually do? They sell Apple software and hardware and align themselves with one of the most established names in the tech business today.
Becoming an Apple Authorized Reseller allows you to increase your sales and bring the Apple brand into potentially remote parts of the country that might not have easy access to an official Apple store.
Apple Authorized Resellers can also get steeper product discounts as they get more knowledgeable about Apple’s products and technical support.
AARs provide help to their customers by custom ordering special Mac configurations, offering their own refund and return policies, teaming up with Apple Authorized Service Providers (AASPs), and applying specialized training on new Apple products toward superior customer service.
