Starter Kit for Onsite Caravans for Sale

There are many Onsite Caravans for Sale all across Australian Caravan Parks. You may have been on a Caravan Park holiday recently and wondered what these permanent Caravans were all about. You may think that people live in these as permanent residents. This is possible but majority of the permanent Onsite Caravans in Australia are for holidays.

Caravan Parks have nightly rates for guests to bring in their Caravans, however many Caravan Parks also give the opportunity to people to leave their Caravans in the park permanently. Instead of a nightly fee the Caravan owner will pay a quarterly site fee. This saves the hassle of bringing the Caravan into the park each time they go on holidays. In a way it means that your Caravan is now a small affordable holiday home. There are many Onsite Caravans for Sale in many parks, but before you take the big step in making the purchase there are a few aspects that you should consider first.

Distance from home

The important aspect about Onsite Caravans is that you need to pay quarterly fees and if the Onsite Caravan is not being utilised as much as possible the quarterly fees will be a burden. Make sure you look at Onsite Caravans for Sale that are within a 1.5 – 2 hour distance from your home. If its any longer than this you may be reluctant to make the trip as often as you hope for. Popular Onsite Caravans for sale in NSW are on the Central Coast 2 hours north of Sydney and the South Coast 2 hours South of Sydney. Popular Onsite Caravans for sale in Victoria are near Phillip Island, Rosebud, Barwon Heads and Ocean Grove. For Queensland, Onsite Caravans for Sale on the Sunshine Coast are the most popular, just a couple hours’ drive from Brisbane.

Considering the Park

You may have found a few Onsite Caravans for Sale that you would consider purchasing, but its very important to consider the park the van is located in as well. Make sure that you stay a night in the park to get a feel for the atmosphere. Do you have small children and are there other families with kids nearby? Are there rowdy residents that may disturb you late at night? Are the facilities appealing to what your family needs? If you have children it may be important to have a lot of water activities such as pool and nearby beach. When looking at Onsite Caravans for Sale that need renovations and some touches up, speak to the park management and see if they have any guidelines on what work can be done on an Onsite Caravan. They may have restriction on what can and cannot be done. Always best to info them of what your plans are and allow them to give their feedback.

Site Fees

Many people see the price tag for Onsite Caravans and they think that is everything that needs to be considered. The really important thing to consider is the ongoing costs. While the Onsite Caravan price may be $10,000 – $50,000 to purchase, you do not own the land so you will need to pay quarterly site rental to the park management and this can be $3000 – $6000 per year. This over a 10 year period is $30,000 – $60,000. This is the biggest expensive. Onsite Caravans for Sale in NSW tend to have higher site fees than Onsite Caravans for Sale in Victoria. Onsite Caravans for Sale on Sunshine Coast is the most affordable.

Usage

When considering Onsite Caravans for Sale keep also in mind that the park may have restriction on the number of days you can use the van. Due to legislation on holiday vans many can only allow their Onsite Caravan Owners use the van for 180 days of the year. While this seems restrictive its not so bad. From 180 days, you can go for weekends away nearly every 3 weeks and have a couple of longer holidays in there as well. The biggest bonus when you own your own Onsite Caravan is that you can use it in the busy holiday seasons of the year, school holidays and Christmas holidays. Saving on peak season nightly rates and availability issues. Good luck in your search!

marketing for fitness businesses

HOW TO CREATE A SUCCESSFUL & SCALABLE FITNESS BUSINESS

I’m just going to put this out here: it is downright difficult to compete in the fitness industry these days, let alone set yourself up for long-term financial success. I read a statistic recently that indicated there were nearly 37,000 health clubs/fitness centers in the United States alone. So, how in the world are you going to make sure that what you offer not only brings in enough clients to keep your head above water, but also generates enough revenue that you can rest assured that the lights will come on for another day and you may even be able to take that vacation you’ve been dreaming about for years?

Here are 5 Go-To Methods I recommend to all of my consulting clients to ensure their gym is around longer than it took to build it out:

  1. Adjust your business model to include layers of memberships. There are many gyms out there that exist solely in one niche – one price point, one type of membership. In this current climate, that’s not going to keep you competitive. If you introduce multiple price points, you can cast a wider net to attract more potential clients in different demographic segments.

Start with your basic membership – the lowest price point – these are the people who just want to come in, do their own thing and leave. They will not require too much of your time which is good, because they’re not paying for it. Level that up to your next price point and introduce large group/team training ie: boot camps, yoga, spin – any type of class where you can have one instructor who is giving specific exercises, but in a larger group setting. It’s a little more structured, but still not too much personal attention. Your next level should be a couple of sessions of small group training per week where you cap your group to 4-6 people and each individual gets more attention. That can be bumped up again to include unlimited small group training sessions for a higher price tag. Round out your price list with private one-on-one training for those clients who want a completely individualized program and a lot of attention.  Each level will appeal to a different type of client and require a specific level of interaction in direct relation to the price tag.

marketing for fitness businesses

  1. You MUST have multiple profit centers – ideally 6-8 sources. This is where many gyms set themselves up for failure. What do I mean by this? Diversify your offerings! Just like with stocks, you do not ever want to put all of your eggs in one basket. What if that basket breaks? Your completely out of luck. Don’t tie all of your potential into one profit center. Explore alternate product offerings such as supplements, sports performance, nutrition, heart rate monitors, specialty programs, saunas, massage/FST, workshops, clinics, seminars…the list is only limited by your own creativity. Whatever you do will not only open up another revenue stream, but will also increase your overall visibility and perceived value in the community, in turn leading to additional potential clients.
  2. If you don’t currently offer Small Group Training (SGT), get that set up immediately. Over the past ten years, private training clients have become fewer and further between. At the same time, the interest in small group training (4-6 clients) has grown exponentially. While my gym tends to attract more private training clients than many across the nation due to its location, I still wanted to figure out how to take advantage of the SGT trend and make it just as lucrative for my gym and it worked out perfectly. Now, they are not only tied to the trainers, the program and the gym itself; they are now tied with the other members in the group. It creates more of a bond.

Let’s use my own numbers at Pulse Fitness for reference. My trainer was already going to set aside an hour of his time for Private Training Client A for $80.  For that same hour of his time, we decided to replace out the single session PT client with a SGT session. I lowered the individual cost of each client to $45 per client and raised the number of clients to 4 in same time slot. I am now bringing in $180 for the same hour with the same coach which is more than 2.5 times the total I collected for the single private training client during the same amount of time. Why wouldn’t you do this?! Not to mention that most of our PT clients only purchase a handful of sessions and then move on. Our SGT clients tend to sign monthly contracts that earn this same hourly rate month after month. Don’t miss out on that piece of the financial pie. 

  1. Do not pay your trainers per head, per session or a percentage. Pay your trainers a flat rate for their time; not for what they’re doing. This does several things for you. First of all, it keeps your employee costs predictable every month. Gym Owners are, as a whole, pretty bad with money. As soon as it comes in, we spend it. This way, there are no surprises when it comes to payroll and you know exactly how much is left over to cover any unexpected expenses. Secondly, it doesn’t matter if your trainer has one client or 30, your costs do not change. You can keep your coaches on a set schedule that is hourly so that no matter what they do, they make the same amount. This puts you in charge of your own gym, your own payroll, your trainers and your own money – not the other way around.
  2. Stop selling sessions! If there is only one thing that you take away from this blog, remember this: stop selling sessions and start selling results. Everyone is different and it takes a different amount of time to reach their goals. There is no way to say that someone can reach their goal in 5 sessions, 10 sessions, or more, especially since these session packages don’t usually expire. One client may come in 5 x week and spend the entire 10-session package by week two; another may come in twice one week and you won’t see their smiling face again for a month! Hence any results they may have expected or you may have promised are impossible to predict.

Additionally, most trainers are not very good sales people as they intrinsically want to help people and feel “bad” asking for money from the same clients time and again. Remove that obstacle and sell people into monthly memberships with x sessions per month instead of x sessions total. Sell them into the long-term results they will get from continuing with a program – lose body fat, increase self-confidence, feel great about themselves, or accomplish the impossible. This way, you’re only selling a client once and you will have recurring monthly EFTs.

Creating a successful and scalable marketing for fitness businesses is not an easy feat, but if investigate the opportunities I have outlined in this blog, you will be ahead of most of your competitors. Get started today!

Paycheck Stub Online Template: What Needs to Be Included

Are you an employer or owner of a small service or product-related business, with one or more individuals in your employ? If so, have you considered how important it is to issue paycheck stubs to your employees—aside from the obvious reason that you are required to do so by law? The task of creating paycheck stub online is one of great importance, one that offers benefits to both your company and the employees who work there. The problem is this can be a very laborious and time-consuming chore, especially when trying to calculate the various salaries and rates of many different employees by hand. Fortunately, there’s an easier way. With a paycheck stub online template—an Excel paycheck stub template made using one of the most popular Microsoft programs—this job can be very manageable and easier than you might think. To illustrate this, in the following article we will outline the many items of information that, when added to a blank paycheck stub online template, can help you save hours of time and lots of money, while meeting your legal obligation.

Paycheck Stub Template: What Needs to Be Included

Whether you decide to how to make a fake paycheck or paystub instantly or borrow a sample paycheck stub template from the Internet, there are a few items of information that must always be included:

paycheck stub online

paycheck stub online

Company Name

If you decide to use one of the many free check stub templates on the Internet—templates that can be found on many business-document sites—you must be certain there is a space to include your company name and contact information, including your full address, email address and website information, if applicable.

Employees Name and Details

On your blank paycheck stub online template you must include the name of your employees, their full address, including city, state and zip code, and most importantly, their social security numbers, as these are legal documents that may be required later for tax purposes.

Gross Income

The gross income portion of your Excel paycheck stub online template is the area in which you will record the employee’s earnings for that pay period before any deductions have been applied.

Net Income

Net income, also referred to as take-home pay, is the amount for which the paycheck will ultimately be written—the total amount the employee earned after taxes and other deductions.

Year-to-Date Gross Income

Year-to-date gross income is the cumulative amount an employee has earned thus far in the calendar year, prior to any tax or other deductions being applied. This information is very important for your employees, especially when they need to show proof of income when making a large purchase on credit, such as a home, car or major appliance.

Year-to-Date Net Income

As you may have guessed, the year-to-date net income line of your paycheck stub template is the sum of each paycheck an employee has received in the current year.

Income Tax

When searching for a sample paycheck stub online template, you’ll need to be sure that template was created for a business in the same state or region in which your company is located. That’s because the overall amount of income tax withheld, including federal, state and local tax, depends on the state in which the employee works and where the company does business.

Retirement/Pension

If your company has a retirement or pension plan, one into which the employee makes a contribution each pay period, this information must be included on your blank paycheck stub template.

Insurance

Depending on the location in which you conduct business, in terms of insurance there are many different categories you should look for when searching for free check stub templates. These include health, dental and vision insurance, as well as disability insurance and workman’s compensation—a type of safety net should an employee become injured or disabled while working for your company.

Social Security

Regardless of the state in which you do business, each employee of your company is required to make a contribution to social security, a federal program that’s a type of savings account the employee will draw from once he/she reaches retirement age.

Voluntary Contributions

When creating an Excel real paycheck stubs online template it’s crucial that you include any voluntary contributions the employee has requested be deducted from each paycheck. These contributions can be for retirement savings accounts, such as a Roth IRA or 401k plan, or charitable deductions to a non-profit organization of some kind.

This may seem like an awful lot of information for a paycheck stub online template, but despite the lengthy description we provided most of these items take up very little space.

Once you have created your blank paycheck stub online template using the Excel program (or borrowed a sample paycheck stub template from the internet), complete with each of your employee’s information, you can now use this template every month to easily create, issue and save each stub.

Global Energy Expert Says Australia Should aim 100% Clean Energy

Clean energy entrepreneur claimed that Australia could be the first continent running on 100 percent clean energy.

Yosef Abramowitz, known as ‘Captain Sunshine’, also said that Australia’s entrenched fossil fuel industry is blocking the nation’s renewable potential.

As the CEO of Israeli-American clean energy company Energiya Global, Abramowitz is ranked in the top six of the world’s leading clean energy pioneers by CNN.

off grid solar
off grid solar

He’s also highlighting Australia’s failure to optimize the country’s extraordinary solar potential. He says that it’s drastically under-utilized because solar energy accounts for just over 5 percent of Australia’s total power generation.

The CEO told WA Today that stronger political support and policy frameworks will strengthen Australia’s solar markets. The government should consider phasing out coal-fired power plants and using Australia’s vast gas resources during the transition to renewables because investors need commitment.

According to Abramowitz, Australia has the world’s highest average solar radiation, equaling to 58 million petajoules of energy or around 10,000 times the national annual energy consumption.

He also pointed out that the country has vast tracts of land available for off grid solar farms. The size of farm needed to power the whole country, however, is surprisingly small. It comes to 6,270 square kilometers or about 0.1 percent of Australia’s land surface.

“Given Australia’s ‘amazing’ land, solar and wind resources, the government should, therefore, commit to a goal of 100 percent renewable energy,” said Abramowitz.

The solar power revolution is also facing multiple challenges, even with the numerous benefits of off grid solar PV, including the intermittency of wind and solar power generation. But the increase of battery storage uptake means users can draw on solar storage batteries when the sun isn’t shining. This then boosts the reliability of the grid.

Increasing uptake of home solar battery storage systems like Sonnen and Tesla Powerwall also means consumers are not paying large electricity bills. Because electricity bills pay for the distribution network, costs may fall disproportionately on those without solar power.

The electricity industry is getting rewired by energy storage developments

Driven by declining prices and supportive government policies, the market for energy storage on the off grid power is growing at a rapid clip.

Based on a research about the operation and costs of electricity grids, especially the benefits of new technologies, energy storage could transform the way American homeowners, businesses, and utilities produce and use power.

According to the firm GTM Research, the U.S. electricity industry installed a total of 1 gigawatt-hour of new storage capacity between 2013 and 2017 after annual average growth of about 50 percent for five years.

off grid power

off grid power

Analysts predict that installations will double between 2017 and 2018 and then keep expanding rapidly in the U.S. and around the world, even if this amount of storage is still less than 0.2 percent of the average amount of electricity the U.S. consumes.

Because it can be deployed at any scale and any point in the grid, from a small home storage system to a pumped hydroelectric reservoir big enough to Solar power a small city, Energy storage is essentially acting like a Swiss Army knife for electricity grids, helping balance short-term power fluctuations, manage peak demand or act as a backup to prevent or recover from power outages.

Storage may also make a big difference with electricity generated through solar or wind power – which can only be harnessed when the sun is shining, and the wind is blowing.

But wind power generates only about 6 percent of U.S. electricity and solar less than 2 percent, even if those industries are growing quickly. In general, it isn’t necessary for that purpose yet because Electricity solar power grids currently use almost all of that power as it is produced.

Utilities will be meeting the peak demand more easily with less total capacity and fewer power plants once energy storage scales up. They can install new transmission lines or rely on flexible natural gas, which is essentially the biggest competitor for energy storage.

It’s also not hurting the industry that the government is helping to boost its development.

California, Maryland, New Jersey and Nevada are subsidizing storage, mandating its adoption or both. A similar measure is pending in Hawaii’s legislature.

The federal government is now laying the regulatory groundwork for the storage industry to compete directly in open wholesale energy markets for the first time, despite the Trump administration’s efforts to maximize fossil fuel extraction.

The reason why the grid currently has relatively little storage and why only about 200,000 of the 17.2 million vehicles Americans bought electric cars in 2017 is the same: it’s still expensive today.

Market experts project that owning electric cars will cost less than standard vehicles powered by gasoline within a decade and continue getting cheaper after that, but for now, these cars aren’t saving money for most of the American drivers

Likewise, for the electricity grid, if storage gets cheap enough, its potential market could expand from 1 gigawatt-hour to dozens or even hundreds of gigawatt-hours.

Wind and solar power would become more competitive, increasingly displacing both coal and natural gas if or when that happens. The cheaper storage will also make electric cars more affordable.
