In the past, simple financial transactions such as depositing and withdrawing money would require a trip to the bank and standing in a possibly long queue. However, the advent of ATMs made all the difference in the lives of millions of consumers as they can now carry out transactions at all times of the day without delays. On top of that, these money machines can also be one of the most profitable business ventures, a goldmine for entrepreneurs looking to earn a passive income. To help these aspiring individuals tap into the ATM business, the CEO of ATM Freedom University, Thomas Berkley, leverages his years of experience to provide insight into the emerging industry.
An industry leader leading the charge in the ATM business industry, Thomas Berkeley has achieved tremendous success in his niche with a personal portfolio of over 50 ATMs all across Ohio and accolades as a ClickFunnels Two Comma Club award winner for building a seven-figure company. Additionally, the go-getter runs multiple six-figure companies and is the founder and CEO of the ATM Freedom University, which teaches entrepreneurs how to make passive income using ATMs, as well as building these lucrative businesses for them with the company’s unique “Done For You” service.
Through his company, Thomas leverages his years of experience running a thriving enterprise to equip emerging entrepreneurs with the knowledge and expertise on how to build, manage, and operate an ATM business. In addition, the industry leader educates these entrepreneurs on the nitty-gritty of the ATM business industry to help them avoid costly rookie mistakes and scale to success.
Now a force to be reckoned with in the ATM business industry, Thomas Berkely first ventured into the niche space when he was 18 and enlisted in the Air Force. During his service, he met his first mentor, who hails from a small town in Ohio. The duo would instantly hit it off over their shared passion, and the mentor would impact the young entrepreneur with some of his business knowledge, one of which was the ATM business.
“He told me that an individual could own the exact same ATMs that banks did, minus the cute coat of paint. So he took me under his wing and helped me start my own ATM business right out of the military, and everything skyrocketed for me from there,” Thomas recalled.
Rising to the top of his field, Thomas wanted to educate others, so he created his first YouTube video in 2018 on how to start an ATM business. The video was an instant hit with the audience, with many subscribers requesting more videos. Eventually, people started inquiring whether Berkley could do everything for them for a fee, and after much consideration, the firebrand entrepreneurs established ATM Freedom University.
Since its inception, ATM Freedom University has helped over 600 students build successful ATM businesses. Furthermore, the company offers holistic “Done For You” services that simplify the complex process for entrepreneurs. For example, the company brings in a new client through this process, onboards them, and finds a location within 60 mins of the client’s home. Then the team will negotiate the contract with the business owner, ship the ATM to the location, send a technician to meet the client, and install, program, and service the machine. Finally, the technician will teach the client how to manage the machine. The whole process is entirely seamless and hands-off.
Undoubtedly, ATM Freedom University sets the pace for others in the niche industry with its unique services. “We’re the only company that negotiates contracts for our students, and we’re the only ones who have techs all over the US that will install, program, and service client’s machines for them,” said Thomas.
