The franchising industry is growing and full of opportunities of all kinds. If you’re looking to start your own social media business and considering the Be More Social franchise, you probably have some questions.
Here are the eight most asked questions about our franchise, answered.
1) Why did you decide to become a franchise?
It’s been our CEO, Rik Courtney’s mission to help entertain, educate and inspire 1% of the 5.9 million businesses in the UK on how to use social media. However, we needed to speed up the process to fulfil this mission and, at the same time, help other entrepreneurs who want to be more successful.
2) How do you provide support for franchisees?
At no point will you be left alone in the dark. We’ll have a dedicated team that will guide you every step of the way regarding all aspects of the business!
We’ll provide you with the tools, systems and strategies. In addition, you’ll have access to a proven business model, the Social Media Food Chain and the Five Fundamentals.
You’ll be introduced to the team, who knows our proven systems inside out. They will guide you on the best way to implement them!
Additionally, we’ll leverage our partners like FSB, Natwest and the various Chambers of Commerce to generate leads that will ensure your success.
3) How much do I need to invest?
We are currently operating a pilot agreement for the first two years. The whole franchise costs £15,000. However, for the first two years, the initial investment is £5000. After the two years, when you decide to continue with us, the remaining £10,000 will be due.
4) How much money can I make?
With the Be More Social Franchise model, you have the opportunity to earn up to £250,000 every year. This also can increase depending on the direction you wish to take your business in your area.
