From Operations Manager to Website Consultant.
Jim Thomas was the first ever Spoton.net franchisee. He’s come a long way in the seven years since making the life changing decision to leave his corporate role in order to launch and develop a successful franchise business, marketing, selling and consulting on the range of revolutionary it’seeze website packages.
A change of career
Before starting his franchise business, Jim worked for a national tyre company but was becoming more and more frustrated that his time was increasingly taken up with administration and paperwork. This led him to consider a franchise career where he could be his own boss and work from home with minimal administration. Spoton.net ticked these boxes and more.
“Spoton.net really appealed to me because I liked the idea of being self-employed but with a head office team taking care of most of the administration, meaning I could just focus on getting out there and winning clients. I am a people-person, so I enjoy meeting business owners, finding out about their business goals and showing them how an ‘It’seeze’ website can increase their sales as it has already done for hundreds of my clients. It’s an uncomplicated business to run with minimal administration and I find it very rewarding.” says Jim.
Rapid business growth
In his third month of trading Jim sold nine websites and then two months later topped this with eleven website sales. His franchise has grown rapidly having sold to hundreds of clients over the years and, subsequently, it has become a family affair with Jim’s two sons becoming increasingly involved in the business.
