Meet the it’seeze Franchise Network
If you ever thought about a major career change or wished you could start your own business, have you considered a franchise? You might be surprised to know that in the UK alone, over 1,000 franchise systems employ in excess of 710,000 people.
Still not sure if a franchise is something worth thinking about? Let’s give you another stat - according to a survey conducted by the British Franchise Association (BFA) and Natwest, 97% of franchises are profitable, registering a turnover of £250,000.
So, if you haven’t considered a franchise before, now’s the time to consider a franchise with it’seeze. Not only is the franchise industry flourishing, but since the Covid-19 pandemic, the demand for websites has increased exponentially.
What is a franchise, and how does it work?
A franchise is when an established business (the franchisor) gives a third party a licence to operate under that business’s name, for which the franchisee (the third party) pays a one-time fee, as well as a percentage of revenue for the privilege.
It’seeze is a proven brand and business model. Our franchisees throughout the UK and Ireland offer our website packages to clients in their local area, which as a franchisee for that area, is protected. In addition, they receive all the support they need together with the benefit of knowing they are working with the reputation and recognition of a national brand.
You might think you need at least the basics in web design to have a website design franchise. In reality, with an it’seeze franchise, you don’t. That’s because our team at head office handles all the website design and development. Of course, if you have website development experience, that’s a bonus to you and your business, but it’s not necessary.
A major benefit of a franchise is that you can run your business from home or an office, depending on your lifestyle.
The benefits of an it’seeze franchise
A major benefit of a franchise is that you can run your business from home or an office, depending on your lifestyle and whether you want the additional overheads having an office brings. In the future, if you want to retire or do something else, you can sell your it’seeze franchise business as your own successful asset.
Other benefits of an it’seeze franchise include:
Flexibility – you don’t have to work 9-5. It’s up to you how much time you put into the business. This flexibility allows you to build a business that fits your lifestyle.
Building a profitable business with a reputable name – you have the opportunity to build a successful, sustainable business that supports your family now and can support them in the future, too.
Comprehensive support from a knowledgeable team – our it’seeze team at head office wants you to succeed. We are there to support our franchisees with building websites for clients, offer a range of packages that are cost-effective and provide support in every aspect of running a business.
We’re immensely proud of what we have achieved with our franchise, but it wouldn’t be possible without our excellent franchise network.
Meet our it’seeze franchise network
We’re immensely proud of what we have achieved with our franchise, but it wouldn’t be possible without our excellent franchise network. Our highly accomplished franchisees come from a wide range of backgrounds; each joined it’seeze for different reasons. Let’s meet a few of them and hear their stories.
Gemma and Mike already had experience with it’seeze, but our Discovery Day clinched their decision to join the franchise. Having joined and completed their training in March 2020, just as the country went into Covid-19 lockdown, they had made their franchise investment back in full in just four months. Hard work and our comprehensive training really do work.
Mark's it’seeze franchise has allowed him to fulfil his lifelong dream of running his own business. His previous career meant he didn’t get to spend as much time as he wanted at home with his family. But starting his own business was a big risk. His franchise has not only allowed him to put his digital marketing skills into practice; he now doesn’t have to spend any nights away from home.
Suzy was a teacher, and she was finding it tough to get a healthy work/life balance with the demands of her job. But since starting an it’seeze franchise, recommended to her by a friend, it’s all changed, and she now has plenty of time to spend with her family and friends. It’seeze’s head office helped Suzy develop an effective lead generation strategy; since then, her business has gone from strength to strength.
Ann was no stranger to website design but was so impressed with it’seeze’s platform, and the ongoing support and training, she has gone on to grow a successful business.
Ann came into an it’seeze franchise with a digital marketing background and knew the flexibility of being self-employed. But being freelance, she missed the security and stability of working as part of an established business. Having already used various website formats, Ann was no stranger to website design but was so impressed with it’seeze’s platform, and the ongoing support and training, she has gone on to grow a successful business.
For Garry, the decision to join it’seeze was driven by the need for more job flexibility when he started a family. Having started his franchise business in 2013, Garry now has a work/life balance that works. Although he, and many of our franchisees, work as many hours as they did when employed, they have the bonus of greater flexibility. Not having any experience designing websites, marketing or technical knowledge, Garry leant heavily on it’seeze’s support and training programme, not to mention the excellent skills of the head office’s website building team. Today, Garry’s confidence and wider skill set have ensured he has a very successful, long-term business he is proud of.
If you want to start your own business, but the risks involved are stopping you, now’s the time to consider an it’seeze franchise.
