The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way businesses operate in 2020 (potentially for the foreseeable future). Due to lockdowns and social distancing guidelines, many businesses have been forced to close and re-open, only to shut down again with the reintroduction of restrictions. Very few industries have managed to escape the effects of the continuing pandemic and almost all have had to quickly adapt their business model and strategies in order to survive.

As the future remains uncertain and as markets continue to rebound over the next few years, many entrepreneurs may be asking themselves whether an investment in a franchise is worth the financial risk.

However, in spite of the unpredictable nature of the economy, an online franchise may be a smart investment going into 2021. Out of all the different industries, an online franchise is perhaps the most suited to thriving in a post-Covid environment.

The majority of online companies have a model that is built for remote work and do not have to factor in social distancing as most of the business can be done at home - making them a lucrative option for investors.

Advantages of a Online Franchise:

Work from Anywhere:

One of the major attractions with an online business is that the company can be run from anywhere in the world. As the future of working from the office looks to radically shift over the next few years as a result of Covid-19, online franchises do not need to worry about adapting their operations and already have well-oiled processes in place to run smoothly over the internet.

Reduced costs:

One of the biggest advantages of running an online franchise is the lack of rental costs for premises and office space. The money typically allocated for property can be directed into building and growing your business. While there are still the costs for online sites such as domain/website purchasing, marketing and paying staff wages, this expenditure amounts to significantly less than the costs of leasing physical office space.
