Online & Internet franchise opportunities

The internet has revolutionised the way we do business – and our buying patterns as consumers. It has also made it easier – and more cost effective – than ever to start our own business, including diverse work-from-home options. This has been underpinned by the rise in smartphone technology, which is increasingly the source of consumer research and purchases. It’s believed that by 2020, 72% of all UK online advertising will be via mobiles.

Internet-based retailing is particularly massive. UK online sales hit £133 billion in 2016, which was a £18 billion increase on the previous year. There is also massive potential in selling products and services via social media. So all you need is a computer and a good idea, right? If only it was that easy.

Why online franchise opportunities work so well

Every year, thousands of internet-based start-ups disappear, as growing a successful venture is still complex and tough. One thing that can make the whole process a great deal more straightforward is an internet franchise deal.

This involves you still being your own boss, but with the backing of a proven business model. The internet franchiser provides you with technical support, equipment, products or whatever else you need, at discounted prices due to their buying power.

The online franchise venture can help with training, insurance and crucially, a high tech e-commerce or general website to get you trading from the first day.

Examples of internet franchise options

This is a highly diverse sector. Just a few examples include spoton.net, to help other people develop websites, and Top10 Local for online marketing. Alternatively, EaziApps provide technical business solutions and SmartPA offer virtual office assistance. Or, you could work from home using an online franchise to sell everything from pet food to pamper products.
