5 reasons why you should join a digital marketing franchise
Has the thought of running your own digital marketing business always appealed to you? Are you tired of working for someone else and looking to start your own marketing venture but not sure how to get a business off the ground? Then a digital marketing franchise could be the perfect solution for you.
Running your own digital marketing business gives you all the advantages of being your own boss, with the flexibility that working the 9 to 5 for someone else just can’t match. But as well as that, you get the support and knowledge of an established business network. By joining a thriving franchise business you get all this and more. But if you’re still unsure, then here are five very good reasons why you should join a digital marketing franchise.
1. You’ll be joining a thriving industry and selling in-demand products
Digital marketing has never been more important, with the pandemic seeing more and more businesses move online and online shopping growing at an incredible rate. Businesses are finding new and innovative ways to sell online to help their businesses survive and thrive. Here in the UK, we have the most advanced ecommerce market in Europe. The country’s ecommerce revenue in 2018 amounted to a massive £688.4 billion. This was a sharp increase on the year before and it has been growing exponentially year on year.
Online shopping is a growing market with huge potential, and it all revolves around digital marketing and web design. So now is a great time to get involved.
What’s more, a website is essential for businesses who aren’t selling online too. It’s a window into the brand, who they are, what they stand for and supports all other marketing efforts in a bid to drive footfall, enquiries, or whatever it is that boosts a business’s bottom line.
2. You will be helping local businesses in your area grow online
There is no denying that there might be some tough times ahead over the next few years, which is why it is more important than ever to build a local business community. Working with other local businesses and building a network is crucial for many reasons. It helps to keep employment high, generates income and wealth for the local area and creates community bonds that last for years.
Rather than turning to the self-build websites, you are giving local businesses the opportunity to keep it local. The benefits work both ways. As well as giving work to you, you are providing ongoing support to local businesses, helping them to take advantage of the immense potential of online shopping.
By building these relationships, you are supporting local businesses to grow and they in turn create work for you. It’s a positive cycle and one we’re proud to be a part of.
3. You’ll have the opportunity to earn from multiple income streams
Rather than just having one income stream coming in from your salaried position with your digital marketing franchise, you get three: instant income, residual income, additional marketing services income. The instant income comes from the websites that are sold. The residual income comes from clients’ monthly payments for ongoing support and maintenance and the additional income comes from all the complimentary digital marketing services you provide, such as SEO, video and photography.
Income is not capped so the sky is the limit in terms of how much you earn. It’s a great way to earn. Just ask it’seeze consultant Ian Burnett, who had this to say: “I spoke with a number of franchisees before making my decision to join the digital marketing franchise and they all confirmed what I thought - that the it’seeze franchise is a proven business model, with great earning opportunities.”
4. You will work from home and enjoy a better work/life balance
Nobody likes the commute. Cramming yourself onto a busy bus or tube, or sitting for hours in rush hour traffic is no fun. Even if you are lucky enough to live within easy walking or cycling distance from work, there are those days when it’s absolutely bucketing down outside or blowing a gale and you really don’t feel like braving it.
That’s not to mention the huge amount of wasted time it takes up simply travelling to and from work - which is why working from home is less stressful, and means more time with the family or doing what you want to do. As a digital marketing franchise it is possible to work from home as you don’t require stock, premises or even staff.
It’s also much better for your health to find the right work/life balance. Stress is one of the biggest silent killers of our age and contributes to a huge amount of other health difficulties. The worst thing about stress is that you might not even realise you are suffering until it’s too late.
Imagine a business where you can work from home. Create yourself a nice workspace in the home, free from distraction but close to all your home comforts. Say goodbye to the commute and the stress of staying ahead of the game with the boss. Work from home, in your own time, under your own steam and you’ll wonder why you never did it before.
As it’seeze consultant Suzy Perry says: “I now have exactly what I always wanted – a business where I get to meet and work with new people every day, a rapidly growing residual income and, most importantly, I can still be at home when my children get home from school.”
5. You don’t need to be an expert in digital marketing to be successful as a franchisee
Although you’ll be marketing, selling, and consulting on websites and additional digital marketing services to local businesses, you don’t need to have any qualifications or expertise to operate a successful digital marketing franchise. However, an interest and some understanding of the industry is important.
We provide expert training and professional support. You’ll get a week’s initial training plus a day with a franchisee to see how it all works in practice. There will be ongoing opportunities to upskill and learn new things. This might be in the form of training days at Head Office or through webinars. There is also the online support forum where you can get tips and advice from other franchisees. Simply post your question to start the debate.

We are always happy to hear from interested parties and will do our best to answer any questions. But we think you’re going to like what you find out. We look forward to hearing from you.
