FranchiseExpo: What is the Your Business Internet Solutions (ybis) franchise opportunity all about?
Daryl Self: The ybis franchise aims to give anybody with a strong work ethic and desire to succeed the opportunity to earn an uncapped passive income, within an industry of their choosing no matter what their previous experience may be. You can work from home or anywhere that suits your personal circumstances allowing you to choose the hours you work which will ultimately decide the income you can achieve.
FE: Who is your ideal candidate for a ybis franchise?
Daryl Self: The ybis franchise is suitable for anyone looking to boost, supplement or replace their existing income. We do not have a strict selection criteria in place when searching for franchisees however we do not offer this opportunity to those who expect to sit back and do nothing expecting to earn a substantial income. Our opportunity appeals to many people from various backgrounds including work from home mums, the disabled, leavers from the forces and those who are simply tired of the 9-5 routine and want to become their own boss.
FE: What type of training and support do you offer ybis
Daryl Self: The ybis franchise offers fully comprehensive client back up, online training and support from an in-house team of industry professionals. We have invested thousands into our training program which teaches the average person the skills required to make their new business a success including multi-channel marketing, search engine optimization & business management. Our training provides a lifelong skill which people can take with them throughout their career and is a welcome addition to any CV.
FE: What are some of the advantages in being a ybis franchisee?
Daryl Self: You will always be able to get hold of one of our dedicated franchisee help desk executives whose purpose is to ensure that your business becomes a success, I don’t believe any other franchise opportunity offers the same level of support that we offer our franchisee’s. The ybis franchise has been quoted as having a great ROI: “…no other business opportunity has the same return on investment potential as a ybis business…” which we are hugely proud of with many existing franchisees benefiting from the business model that we offer.
FE: Are you a member of any Associations?
Daryl Self: Due to the level of investment required and the type of opportunity that we are offering we have not yet joined any registered organisations, however this can and will most likely change in the near future as we continue to grow.
FE: Tell us a little about your industry?
Daryl Self: The ybis franchise is currently within a multi-billion pound industry that has seen continued growth year on year. It has been predicted that over a quarter of all retail sales in the UK will be made online by 2015, equating to an average annual spend of over £56bn! This truly is a market that has yet to see its full potential and an industry that is well worth being a part of if you are serious about making money online.
FE: How successful is your company today and what are your future growth plans?
Daryl Self: The company has gone from strength to strength over the last few years with us introducing many new features and valuable additions to our repertoire of services available to our franchisees meaning that our opportunity has even more value for money than it has been in the past. We have a very successful business platform in place for those who come on board and we are expecting to launch in the states in the middle of 2013, which will see massive growth for us and remains a highly anticipated move for us.
FE: What are your franchisees saying about the business?
Daryl Self: I do my best to keep tabs on our many clients however it is hard to say what our franchisees are saying about us as one collective voice. What I would recommend is that you take time to read our current client testimonials available on our company website which should give you a great overview of what ybis has to offer.
FE: What advice do you have for someone looking to acquire a Franchise?
Daryl Self: If you are looking to start your own business then you must be willing to put the work in and do so from within an industry that you have a passion for. What makes ybis different is that we are dedicated to helping you start a business from within a market niche that you have a passion for. A lot of people need to understand that any new business will not make money from day one and takes time become an established business gaining authority over your competition, but if you are willing to work hard then your profits can be very rewarding.
FE: In your opinion, why do you think that ybis would be a great opportunity for someone?
Daryl Self: The ybis franchise opportunity has unrivaled flexibility and can be a decision that you can stay with for as long as it remains a suitable opportunity for you. Because you will own your business 100% you are entitled thereafter to sell your business whenever you like, the clients which do decide to sell their business at a later stage usually settle for around three times the annual turnover of their business which leaves people with a fantastic return on their initial investment. The work required to maintain an established affiliate business is marginal compared to the initial efforts required within years 1 or 2 meaning that your business becomes easier to manage the longer you have owned it, which no other business opportunity can offer you.
