A passion for the industry and a belief in the market’s potential saw CityLocal’s new franchisee for Hemel Hempstead give up his job for an online directory franchise.
Billy Milton told the FranchiseSalesBlog about how he got involved with the work-from-home franchise.
“I worked in corporate training and was looking to get involved in a marketplace that was growing,” he explains. “I came across CityLocal and it was almost an instant decision to take the franchise as it clearly offers a fantastic service to local businesses.
“I believe that online business promotion is the future of advertising and I also have a passion to see local businesses prosper and find cost-effective ways to promote themselves.
“I loved the website and the marketing material and I am really impressed by the head office backup and the depth of experience available for me to tap into.”
CityLocal now offers a number of low-cost start-up packages, which is why you'll find it in the FranchiseSales.co.uk Low-Cost Franchise category. This can help franchisees get the business off the ground at a fraction of the normal price.
