Frequently asked questions

Q. What is a Top Ten Percent Digital Mobile Marketing Franchise?

To put it simply, Top Ten Percent (TTP) is a buyer’s cooperative that has gone digital! In this franchise opportunity,  your Consumer Members benefit from the ability to buy from the best for less.  Your Consumer Members use the TTP Mobile App on their smart phone to redeem Exclusive Member Discounts from the top local businesses. All of these businesses have been nominated by your Consumer Members, passed your evaluation criteria, and are endorsed as being in the top 10% of their respective fields. You evaluate those businesses against our selection criteria to determine if they fit the standards for inclusion into the Top Ten Percent and then meet with the business owners to complete an assessment interview.  If they meet the criteria, you award them with inclusion and also offer them a VIP Membership into our Cooperative Advertising Program, the CAP Advantage.  The primary marketing method used in the CAP Advantage is Digital/Mobile Marketing.  It is difficult, if not impossible for most small to medium size businesses to implement an effective Mobile Marketing program of their own.  As a TTP franchisee, not only will you enjoy the prestige of selecting and recognizing the top businesses in your area, you also receive the satisfaction of helping those businesses grow their revenues while at the same time growing your own!  “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want”

Q: Why Should I Apply For a Top Ten Percent Franchise?

After founding one of the fastest growing franchise systems in the world, our CEO and Founder, Jerry Clum sold the business and retired.  While in retirement he wrote a book entitled, “Zero to $100 Million in Five Years”.  This book, which is now completely sold out and even used copies often sell for hundreds of dollars on, explains a 15 Item Acid test that he developed to measure and evaluate business concepts.  For ten years Mr. Clum evaluated hundreds of business concepts and existing franchise opportunities.  Rarely did any business he evaluated meet even 11 or 12 of the items on this Acid Test.  Top Ten Percent is the first and only business model that he has found in which all 15 items in the Acid Test have been fulfilled.  Five of the more important items in the test state that a business must:

  1. Be based on an emerging trend.
  2. Have a recurring revenue component.
  3. Have little competition.
  4. Not have collection or cash flow problems.
  5. Not be labor intensive.

The Top Ten Percent Franchise System has been developed around all 15 items of this Acid Test, as well as including the best parts of hundreds of other top franchise systems that Mr. Clum has consulted for over the past ten years.  During the mutual evaluation process, you will gain a deeper understanding of all 15 Items on the Acid Test and how our business model delivers on them. If you want to learn more about one of the best franchises today, please request our franchise information.

Q: What Will Be My Role As a Top Ten Percent Franchisee?

TTP is truly an executive based, white-collar franchise model. However, there are three different ways you can choose to operate your franchise based on the capital you have to invest, how fast you desire to ramp up, the amount of time you can invest and the skills you possess.

Owner-Operator Model

This model is for those candidates that have minimum working capital to invest and they are looking to grow their business as quickly as possible with the least amount of capital outlay.  In this model the franchisee will start and run the business in its entirety until the business can financially support bringing on additional staff.  Your total initial investment including the franchise fee will be approximately $17,958 – $26,836. There’s not a lot of franchise opportunities or business opportunities out there that can be started for less!

Executive Managed Model

This model puts the franchise owner in the role of the Director of Operations where they have complete management responsibilities, but they hire someone for the role of their Business Recognition Consultant to conduct the assessment interviews and outside marketing duties.  This Model is designed for those franchisees who, even with our training and support, feel that sales may be a serious weakness for them.  If you select this model you can expect to invest approximately $10,000 more than in an Owner-Operator Model.

Passive Income Model

This model is the perfect fit for a franchisee that is looking to invest in a business, but does not want to spend the rest of their career tied down to one business. Once you have enrolled at least 100 VIP Business Members, you may turn over supervision of your business to a Director of Operations.

Q: Is The Mobile Marketing Industry Projected To Grow?

Yes! According to, between By 2010 through 2019 Mobile Ad Spending is projected to increase by 8,356% to nearly $20 Billion. An industry that was virtually non-existent only a few years ago is quickly becoming the dominating force of all marketing media.

I’ve been in sales for over 20 years and have attended many seminars and training programs and I can honestly say the week spent with Jerry and the rest of the Top Ten Percent staff was second to none. Taking the leap to start your own business is very intimidating and stressful, however, after attending the training at Top Ten Percent University I was 100% sure I had made the right decision. Jerry’s knowledge and passion make you realize this business is destined to be the next big thing and I’m thankful I was able to find a way to be a part of it all.
