Fresh from exhibiting at this year’s Virtual Franchise Show, you can now find the Activ Marketing Group at 2021’s Digital Age Expo.
From the 16th-18th November we’ll be available to connect with other business owners, entrepreneurs and new clients. It’s a top opportunity to share knowledge from business to business, skills and advice. Click here for a virtual experience of the show.
Besides government support through schemes such as furlough or small business grants, there has been little support for businesses to get ‘back on track’ in our post-pandemic UK. The Digital Age Expo is looking to combat that through their unique online platform allowing the opportunity to network with other like-minded businesses and clients in the digital world. Their show acts as a catalyst for inspiration, innovation and collaboration for everyone from tech giants to creative individuals.
Activ Franchise will be demonstrating their excellent opportunities to start your own business in digital marketing. Ticking all sorts of boxes from flexibility, healthy work-life balance, change in career whilst garnering available support and training, becoming a franchisee can suit a range of circumstances and none more so than Activ Marketing Group.
There really couldn’t be a better time to take the plunge and start your business with the backing of a franchise, according to HSBC, new franchise numbers remained high throughout 2020 with them taking on 834 new customers starting a franchised business. The pandemic hasn’t fostered a reduced interest in becoming self-employed, in fact, it’s given the UK workforce the time away from their day jobs to consider what they value the most and how they can follow their business dreams.
So what is a franchise? In very simple terms, a franchise is a business in which an established business owner, known as the franchisor, sells the rights to use their business model to independent operators, who become a franchisee. You might know of some famous franchise models in the fast food industry such as Domino’s Pizza or McDonalds.
Whilst we won’t be whipping up a pizza base or cooking up some fries, Activ offers budding entrepreneurs the opportunity to make their dream of running their own marketing business a reality. We’re the longest running UK digital marketing franchise servicing many happy clients since 2008. Running your own business alongside Activ gives you access to on-the-job training in digital marketing so that you can better service your clients, as well as all the technical support you require. From building websites to managing social media channels, you choose your products and your clients. At the heart of Activ’s purpose is to service small business clients and support their journey through the world of marketing – giving them an online presence or a virtual shop window.
So whether you’re looking for a completely new career direction into the wonderful world of marketing, want to setup your own marketing agency and tired of working for someone else, have suffered redundancy due to the pandemic or want to start your side-hustle to gain extra income, the opportunities with Activ are endless.
