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!

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.
