Online networking may have started off as a social phenomenon amongst teenagers, however with the obvious benefits of such a trend – social networking has now become extremely popular amongst small business owners and entrepreneurs. It can be a great way of exploring a franchise opportunity further.
Facebook is now playing host to a variety of individuals and groups all looking to meet and exchange ideas about entrepreneurship and franchising. This is a great opportunity to interact with individuals; who are either thinking about investing in a franchise, in the middle of investing, just starting out or well developed franchisees. It is all carried out in an informal setting and it is fast becoming the best way to meet people of similar interests. Franchise Direct now has its own Facebook page which you can join and meet budding entrepreneurs and franchisees. The page is called “Become a Successful Entrepreneur through Franchising” and if you are interested in joining you should follow this link. It is a great way of getting in touch with people who are also interested in the franchise industry.
Usually, blogs are short and snappy news bites or short editorials which are easy to read and are less formal that a feature length article. Blogs are also a great way to read regular and up to date news on the franchise and entrepreneurial industry. To maximise the benefits of blogs, sign up to Rss (Really Simple Syndication) feeds to be notified of regular updates to blogs and web pages. Franchise Focus now features a Rss service so that you can be notified of a new post, or receive the new post in an email.
The dawn of the internet has brought along new and innovative ways of communication. While face to face meetings with franchisors and franchisees are important, the social networking sites are also a great way of interacting with like-minded individuals.
