Franchise opportunity with On My Doorstep
On My Doorstep, a community website franchisor is looking for franchisees to help with its national development plans. On My Doorstep operates 700 websites that covers one third of the UK. The company provides local online information to all local UK communities. They plan to increase this total to over 1,500 by the end of 2009.
According to Jeremy Woolger from On My Doorstep, they currently have 5 franchisees in their network that manage one or a range of websites. On My Doorstep is searching for outgoing prospective franchisees with basic computer knowledge to take over the company-run websites. It is not necessary to have either programming or specific web design skills, as business listings are prepared within a control panel, meaning that only basic IT knowledge is required.
An On My Doorstep franchise can also be run from your home, as the franchise package includes each and every thing that a franchisee needs in order to set up the business. This covers everything from a laser printer, laptop and software, to stationery, ongoing support and full training. They provide excellent training to prepare you to launch the store. They conduct a 3 day training programme that teaches the basic and advanced things you need to know to get your business going, including advice upon how to upload new information onto the website, and how to sell advertising space.
