Leicester, United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 31, 2009 -- Stephen Szikora, the new franchise owner for the territory of Northampton, has been working as an IT consultant before coming across the CityLocal business opportunity.
Stephen says "The reason I joined CityLocal was because I want to build a business that has a residual income and would continue to allow me to take a residual income into my retirement. Also, CityLocal will allow me to gradually exit where I am at the moment as my skills decline and I am getting older with far less employment opportunities in the future.
The reason I chose CityLocal as opposed to other franchises that I looked at was because of the professionalism behind the business and the way Head Office have conducted themselves. I think it is excellent value for money when you actually take the cost of the franchise divided by the 5 year period including the ongoing costs; it is actually a very good deal.
I went through the website and usability in great detail and tested the search engines and looked at results of the search engine optimisation and I was very impressed. I don't spend my money lightly and I was looking for the best investment and return on my money. I am really looking forward to building a fantastic local business."
The CityLocal franchise has evolved considerably over the last year and the online business promotion is leagues ahead of any other companies in this industry. With a range of income streams, franchisees can work from home and maximise their revenue with less customers, enabling them to work smarter and promote businesses locally in a unique and innovate way.
The CityLocal business promotion and community website offers a number of start-up packages with many low cost entry options. This can help franchisees in the initial stages to get the business of the ground at a fraction of the price. The products and marketing are superb and if you are looking for a home based business with low overheads and excellent growth potential, look no further.
