There are a number of computer franchise opportunities on the market and available to be researched. It is possible to find anything from an accounting package to education type. A computer service version will deliver services or online support in a variety of areas.
What will be provided by a franchisor
Areas in two ways, one being areas of course industries or areas of expertise, but also area meaning territories. A company owner will only sell so many of them in certain territories so there is enough business for everyone. It is in the interest of the owner too, to make his franchisees as successful as possible.
An owner already has a proven method of delivering that particular computer opportunity so the leg work has already been done. The reason the recruits are so successful is that they follow this proven method from beginning to end, from following the set-up of the business to using all the guidelines laid out by the owner.
Using step by step processes to keep the franchisee on track is the key, and knowing that these methods are being used successfully by other franchisees out there.
Another reason a recruit will find greater success than a stand-alone business is the fact that the franchisor provides all the training and support needed to get that business up and running. Not to mention on-going support once the business is a going concern. Of course this all comes at a cost.
There will generally be royalty fees to be paid monthly from any income derived from the business. The advantages of using a well-known brand name cannot be understated. Any potential customers doing a search for that particular product or service will be far more likely to go with a recognised name, one that is coming higher up on a Google search.
So once again, the ongoing fees are paid for the use of the recognised name, logos, and such like and for the ongoing support, setting up administration and back of house processes, perhaps for help with marketing campaigns in the local area. These key features of purchasing one are priceless.
The entry level fee for a computer business can be anything from £5000 to £20,000. Banks are more likely to loan to one than a stand-alone business because there is a much higher success rate of staying in business for a franchise than an independent business, whether it is computer or a retail outlet.
Diverse areas of opportunity
Nearly every business uses a computer or software package in some shape or form, so whether you are interested in a computer version in IT support, online travel and leisure, or sales and marketing, web design, consulting or education, there should be a customer base out there for you.
