With the growth of the online economy, internet franchises have become a viable and legitimate option for those looking at becoming a franchisee. This sector doesn’t necessarily require you to have a deep understanding of web technologies, and previous industry experience isn’t always required.
Some online franchises focus on local community websites, where you are responsible for running a hyper-local ‘online newspaper’ of sorts. These require a broad range of skills and your success will depend on local competition, demographics and the people you need to bring on board to make the business work. You will also need to follow the business model closely to ensure success.
Other internet franchisees might have the core development and design skills required to run their own business, but they choose to join a franchise to help them attract local business and to keep up with a community of like-minded online businesspeople.
Web skills are not necessarily required to run a web business; a number of internet franchises for sale are looking for accomplished salespeople who can become an effective local salesforce for a centrally-developed product or service.
