Leicester, United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 01, 2009 -- CityLocal is now taking a more pro-active approach with regards to the support they give to their franchise owners. They have scheduled weekly conference call for all franchisees.
These conference calls will be useful for all franchise owners (particularly for weaker/struggling franchisees) and will present an opportunity for additional training, marketing advice, and also discuss how to drive their business forward.
The conference calls will be held using Skype so that the cost of the call is absolutely free for all franchisees. This means that more people are likely to attend and benefit from the training and support offered.
The conference calls are structured with clear topics of discussion to give the group a focus on a particular theme. Every week, CityLocal sends all franchise owners a schedule for the next conference. They recommend that all franchisees who want to grow their business attend these conference calls as they will be invaluable to their business development and future potential.
Franchise owners have taken warmly to the new way of meeting online and have already started giving some feedback as to what they would like the future conference calls to be about in the future. They have also urged other franchise owners to attend also.
Billy Milton - Citylocal Hemel Hempstead said "Great Conference call today guys 20/11, Skype conference call works really well and being able to write and talk is so helpful. I picked up some really useful tips regarding the free listings stuff that I hope will convert into sales. If you haven't made it to a conference call yet I'd advise you to try and get yourself free to link up."
Kieran Sheil -CityLocal Waterford said "I am not with Citylocal long and find the conference call a great benefit as it keeps you up to date with all the improvements etc that are happening at Citylocal as well as hearing from more experienced franchisees on ways to improve our business and pick up new customers. Hope more franchisees make the effort to go on and share their experiences."
