Before joining Spoton.net, Steve was a self-confessed technophobe. So a website and digital marketing franchise wasn't an obvious career choice. Nevertheless, several years on, Spoton.net has proved to be a perfect fit for him.
No technical knowledge required
Steve had always wanted the benefits of being self-employed but without the headaches, so he decided to look into franchising and came across Spoton.net.
"At first, I wasn’t sure Spoton.net was for me because you could write what Iknew about websites on a postage stamp. But the team at head office stripped everything back to basics, and through a week’s worth of comprehensive training, they taught me everything I needed to know to consult on the range of it’seeze website packages."
Steve's training certainly paid off – he’s now got an ever- growing client base with an exceptional retention rate.
An inclusive, supportive team
The protected territory that comes with each franchise means that Steve isn't in competition with other franchisees. "It's a really inclusive, supportive atmosphere – not just from head office, but from other franchisees as well." And the best bit about the business? "Working with people – and helping their businesses to grow."
