Mobile phones, tablets, laptops, smart TVs, e-readers; the list of Internet-connected devices that we access daily continues to increase. What’s more, in the UK, we lead the way.
On average, UK users spend 5 hours a day on mobile apps, and for a lot of this time, we are also sat in front of Internet-connected TVs and other Internet-enabled devices. We may love to pore over social media and messaging apps, but this is far from the whole picture. Games, book apps, news apps, even music and fitness apps; these are all popular among UK users. And then there are private apps; those that are made on behalf of clients looking to sell products or services using this type of software.
In 2014, the UK app industry alone generated more than £4bn, and this figure is expected to increase further over time. Arguably the biggest concern for consumers is that of security, and this is where having the backing of a well-respected brand and a recognised name can really pay dividends to the business owner.
Organisations like Eazi Apps, Blam!, and Appiy are just of the businesses currently offering appealing franchise deals. In some cases, this means selling existing apps, but some of these businesses also teach you how to sell custom apps, even if you have no programming or app knowledge.
The app industry is huge, but the high-tech and internet industry is burgeoning with franchise opportunities. Here are just some of the ways you can get involved in high-tech and online franchising:
• Set up a franchise repairing mobile phones
• Install antivirus software on home PCs
• Install home networking and automated systems for consumers
• Be one of the first to offer mobile phone charging as a service to UK users
Owning a franchise means that you don’t attract a lot of the potential pitfalls associated with establishing a brand-new business. You can trade on the name of the franchise, could be more likely to gain access to bank funding with a reputable and established brand behind you, and you receive guidance and help from the franchise owner to ensure that you hit the ground running and have the best chance of making a good profit.
