Why are organisational skills important in business?

why being organised is important

‘Be your own boss’ they said, ‘it’ll be fun’ they said! And most of the time it absolutely is, but it takes a lot of hard work and organisation to start and continue to run your business efficiently and professionally. As one of the top UK franchises, we take a look at how important organisational skills are to the success of digital marketing franchises.

The importance of good technical support

When it comes to running a franchise marketing company who specialise in website design, development, hosting and support, it’s crucial to understand the level of technical support available to you from head office. The last thing you need is for a client’s website to go offline and not have the team in place to help you get it back up and running. The stress!

The importance of ongoing training for business owners

Here at activ, we believe that supporting our franchisees with ongoing training makes a real difference to the longevity of their businesses and helps to place them as a marketing expert to their clients. Training can often be taken for granted when you are in employment, but branching out on your own means funding training yourself or having the time to spend reading, researching and staying on top of the current trends.

How branding works within a franchise

One of the biggest challenges of starting your own business is the need to develop your new business strategy – how you go about it can really help you win those all-important clients and build strong, long-term relationships.

Your role as a franchisee – how does it work?

Becoming a franchisee can often remove some of the initial fear (usually financial concerns) about starting up on your own and securely offer you support to setup your business and continue to grow.

The importance of residual income for entrepreneurs

When you take the plunge into starting your own business, whether you’re going solo or becoming a franchisee, there are often a million and one things to think about or setup. Don’t let your income become one of them.

Offering SEO services to your clients

SEO can be overwhelming to clients who are only just starting out on their digital marketing journey, especially if they’ve only just launched a new website and are looking at the next steps. You have the job of convincing them why it’s such a great investment and clients often don’t realise its true potential and have loads of questions whilst wanting to hold you to specific guarantees.
