Things To Do In Is a unique, local online business advertising directory which was set up in late 2013, the idea came about because we owned a children's zoo in Clacton on sea and had decided to research how our customers had found us.
So we asked all of our customers how they had heard about our zoo and they would answer, seen the sign outside, been before, local, recommended etc, but we soon noticed that around 70% of all customers had ticked the internet section so we then started asking everyone who said internet what search term they had entered and to our surprise 90% of these customers said oh we just typed in "things to do in Clacton” and when we entered this on Google this just brought up trip-advisor and days out with the kids.
There was no things to do in Clacton and so we bought this site and soon realised it was available in most towns throughout the UK and so the idea was born and it was amazing that it had not been bought before considering it's the most searched term out there for anyone looking for something to do in a town or wanting to know what's happening in their own town.
Things to do in was started as an attraction based business as the name implies, but it has now evolved into a unique local online business advertising directory, in fact almost all businesses that have joined us owe their first page ranking solely to the fact that they have their business advertised on our sites.
There are many ways of getting work which equates to adding companies to our "Things To Do In sites”.
One of the great things about this Franchise is if you are not feeling a 100% you can email companies direct from home to set up appointments or better still, call companies and get meetings set up.
If you want to get out and about (which is the best way of getting new businesses on board) then you can go out and meet with companies. We have found this to be the most productive and enjoyable way of meeting new business owners and is a fantastic way of getting new businesses on board. When you tell them what we offer and for the price we offer it for, you will the fantastic response and the many businesses that join.
You can also go to networking groups or business shows. There are no limits to the way you can add companies and make some great friends along the way.
You can work the hours that suits your lifestyle. No more being tied to a desk or stuck in a factory. Being your own boss but with all the support you will ever need and make some great friends along the way.
You can pick the area that suits you best if it's still available. Most franchisees will pick their own local area to save on travelling costs and time and the fact being you may know many company owners already.But there is nothing to stop you owning two or more areas. We try to make each area that we franchise have 2,500 businesses.
We would expect you to earn over £50,000 with very low outgoingsand in excess of £100,000 in year 2.
We are looking for a people’s person, who likes talking to and meeting people, if you have sales and some internet experience then great but if not we will give you full training in both fields.
If this sounds like you, and you like the idea of an advertising and marketing business, get in touch!
