Trends and Facts About Internet Franchises

Who could have predicted back in the early 90s the impact the internet would have on the way we live, work, and play? Sure, a lot has changed since those hazy ravey days. But perhaps the most central ingredient that has maintained its omnipotence over time has been the world wide web; or the Information Superhighway as it was once more commonly known.

Back then, the internet was available to the few who owned a desktop computer connected to a physical telephone line. Now, of course, the internet is everywhere: in our pockets, appliances, and literally everywhere we go.

There were only 16 million internet users back in 1995 — that's 0.4% of the planet's population. In comparison, there are now around 5.4 billion internet users — that's 67.8% of the world's population.

In the UK, 96% of the population is connected to the internet and accesses it at least once a day. And we're addicted — the average UK citizen spends around 25 hours a week online, watching TV and movies, trawling social media, and spending our money. But for many of us, that sounds like a relatively conservative estimate, as our work lives increasingly rely on the world wide web.

Indeed, the pandemic of the early 2020s saw our reliance on the internet increase exponentially as it presented the possibility of remote working in a broad range of business sectors. This afforded many of us new, ingenious ways to stay connected and productive.

Therefore, internet franchises have become part of one of the UK’s most thriving business sectors, offering a broad array of services, such as:

  • Platforms for remote working
  • Remote PA and freelance specialists
  • Ecommerce
  • Education, training, and learning
  • Mental health and medical support
  • App building
  • Website building
  • Real estate and estate agency
  • Sales and customer support
  • Digital marketing
  • Social media
  • Dating
  • Business consultation
  • Food delivery
  • Homes services

Indeed, the UK public has come to rely on internet franchises - providing solutions to a cornucopia of work, retail, and leisure needs.

So, if you're considering becoming your own boss and want the flexibility and freedom afforded by running a business online, it's time to check out the excellent internet franchise opportunities offered by Franchise Direct.


Franchising is frequently considered the common-sense approach to becoming your own boss because of the wide range of benefits you inherit when you invest in an internet franchise.

When you select your internet franchise business, you’ll enjoy:

  • Access to an existing customer base who already know and trust your services
  • Instantly recognisable logo and branding, offering immediate curb appeal (albeit virtual)
  • A reputation for excellent customer support and service
  • A tried-and-tested service offering that resonates with your future clients
  • An existing supply chain
  • Online authority and strong SEO

Investing in an internet franchise is also an investment in your skills because most parent companies provide excellent training opportunities to ensure you’re able to maintain their reputation and maximise your earning potential. This means that you’ll develop the expertise that your future clients will come to rely upon.

In addition to training, many parent companies offer essential HR support services, helping ensure that your new business complies with complicated business, financial, and employment regulations. This service alone is precious because it's the complex compliance issues that keep many independent business owners awake at night.

You're never on your own with an internet franchise - your parent company will guide you every step of the way while giving you the freedom to express your personality through their instantly recognisable brand.

Remember, when you invest in an internet franchise with Franchise Direct, you buy into a company that will:

  • Provide ongoing business support and development from Day One
  • Be there to offer ongoing advice and guidance, maximising your earning potential
  • Include licences to benefit from the parent company’s instantly recognisable branding and online authority

Facts About Internet FranchisesIf we haven’t convinced you yet that internet franchises are among the most fertile of all business sectors, check out these fascinating facts:

  • Almost 90% of online shoppers conduct research before buying a product, relying on customer reviews and professional reviewing sites to help make purchase decisions.
  • 1.79 billion people made an online purchase in 2021.
  • Almost 40% of small and medium-sized businesses sell their products and services exclusively over the internet.

Internet franchises provide genuine flexibility for your ongoing work-life balance, offering ways to connect with valuable customers 24/7. You no longer need expensive premises to provide products and services, making internet franchises a particularly attractive way to become your own boss.

Small businesses tend to adopt new, innovative platforms more quickly than larger organisations because they have the most flexible infrastructure. Almost 65% of all small businesses have at least a website or a business blog.

Franchising Vs. Independent

Setting up an independent business is an appealing prospect but, in reality, poses a range of make-or-break challenges that send almost half of all new companies under within five years of opening.

Compare that with the relative ease with which a franchise opportunity becomes a reality, compounded with the valuable ongoing support franchisees enjoy from their chosen parent company.

Franchises are tried-and-tested businesses, offering an existing infrastructure proven to support the sustainability, ongoing profitability, and operational growth of your new business venture.

Franchises tend to recoup their initial investments more quickly than indies, who often struggle for visibility against their established competition. And in an environment as competitive as search engines, the established businesses generally make it to the top of the Results Page.

So, if you're seeking out an opportunity to transform your working life, consider the benefits of investing in a ready-made internet franchise, including:

  • An existing customer base
  • An operational supply chain
  • Existing online authority

Internet FranchisesCheck out Franchise Direct's excellent selection of internet franchises, and make your dream of becoming your own boss a speedy reality.

Here are some interesting facts about this industry:

  1. Almost 60% of the people in the world have access to the Internet today - a total of just under 4.6 billion. Of this total, 92.6% (4.32 billion) accessed the internet via mobile devices. The majority of Internet users today are in North America and Europe. In the UK, it is estimated that 97% of the population have an Internet connection.
  2. A large part of the online market is made up of a wide variety of applications for multiple mobile devices such as phones, tablets, gaming devices, etc. In fact, almost all types of devices these days have some sort of online function. The repair and maintenance of mobile devices, tablets and other online handhelds also offers the chance of a lucrative entry into self-employment. In the UK, the annual turnover for device repair was £2 billion alone.
  3. There is a massive earnings potential in the UK in this area. In 2020, 84% of UK adults own a smartphone. On average, Brits spend 2 hours and 34 minutes online on their smartphones every day. In 2019, 72% of mobile connections are 4G, up from 66% in 2018. If that isn't an attractive customer base for future franchisees then we don't know what is.
  4. Fragile LCD screens, short battery life and other wear-sensitive components also ensure a stable demand for high-quality repair services for mobile phones and tablets.
  5. In addition to repair services and maintenance, franchisees also have the option of using the Internet to sell educational and training materials, online games or security services. The medium's range alone offers attractive opportunities for success. In fact, the UK mobile games industry is one of the biggest on the planet outside the US. According to industry body, Ukie, the UK video games industry was worth £5.35bn in sales in 2019, including £3.85bn in games software and £1.35bn in games hardware. The value of digital and physical games sales in the UK reached £3.864 billion in 2018, up 9.1 per cent on 2017, according to the ERA.
  6. One of the advantages of a franchise partnership compared to a single establishment is, among other things, the recognition effect of the brand. The resulting customer trust makes it easier to enter the market and ensures a high proportion of regular customers. Support in the field of marketing and advertising can also be a valuable start-up aid for the start-up.
