Frequently asked questions 

Finances 
 
How much investment do I need? 
The investment fee is £9,995* +VAT. You will also need working capital to start the online business – to cover your running expenses while you grow your client base. Third party funding packages are available, subject to status. 
 
 
How can I earn? 
For every it’seeze website package you sell, you receive the greater share of the initial set up fee (depending on the package) and recurring revenue from your clients' monthly subscriptions. You also benefit from providing additional digital marketing and web related services – and you keep all the revenue you generate. 
 
 
Will I have to pay ongoing royalties? 
No, there are no royalties to pay. However, after your first twelve months you’ll need to pay a small monthly management fee of £100 towards your continuous support. 
 
 
How long does the contract last for? 
The internet franchise agreement is based on a five-year rolling contract – after five years, you have a legal and automatic right to renew for another five years at no extra cost, providing certain criteria are met. 
 
 
Do I need any premises? 
No, the business package, programs and systems supplied by Spoton.net give you everything you need to operate your online marketing franchise from a home office. 
 
 
How will I receive my income? 
Our finance team total up your clients' website set up fees and monthly subscriptions and transfer the revenue you have generated, directly into your business bank account on the first working day of each month. 
 
Training and Support 
 
Do I have to be an experienced sales or technical person? 
No. Many of our franchisees had no previous sales or technical experience when they started out with Spoton.net. As long as you are a people person and have an aptitude to learn and the determination to succeed, we’ll provide you with all the training and support you will need to develop a successful online business. You can see exactly what skills and qualities we look for on the Are you right for Spoton.net page. 
 
 
What does the training week cover? 
Everything you need to know. The topics we cover in the training week range from how the different systems and processes work and how to market your online business to finding and meeting clients. The week includes a training session with a franchisee, so you’ll learn from real experience. 
 
 
The websites 
 
What are the products you sell? 
 
We sell three main website packages: 
 
it’seeze Lite

it’seeze Commerce 
 
You can find out more about these packages on the it’seeze website 
 
 
Who builds and designs the websites? 
All websites are created in-house by our team of professional website designers and developers at head office. As a website franchisee, your role is to market, consult and take on new clients while maintaining great relations with existing clients. The head office team provides all the support you may need to assist with technical matters and client queries. 
 
 
Have you got any example sites you have designed? 
Yes – take a look at the it’seeze portfolio 
 
Clients 
 
How many clients can I take on in a month? 
How much drive and ability do you have? Can you beat 14 website sales? That's the current record held by two of our franchisees. 
 
 
How will I know where potential customers can be found? 
As part of your internet franchise package, you'll get a comprehensive database from the UK’s leading business data supplier. This database will list appropriate businesses in your area. You’ll learn how to find more clients during the training – and you’ll also have your own CRM system to manage your contacts. 
 
Territory: 
 
Do you allocate a territory to me? 
No, we let you choose an exclusive territory from the postcode areas available. The size of the territory is based on the number of businesses it contains.
