Mark Burton - Making a business dream a reality
From an early age, Mark knew he wanted to own his own business. Despite studying business studies at college and university, he ended up working for a large blue chip company, but his heart was never really in it - he wanted to be his own boss.
Time to make a change
Mark’s previous job meant he had to stay away from home most evenings. It was only when he and his wife decided to start a family that he considered buying an online marketing franchise business. “There was no way I was going to start a family and not be there to see my kids grow up, but starting a business from scratch felt like too much risk,” says Mark. spoton.net was the ideal business opportunity for Mark - it meant he could buy into a proven business model and utilise his digital marketing skills without the need to spend night after night away from home.
The right choice
Since joining the web design franchise back in 2014, Mark has become a father twice and couldn’t be happier. “I can honestly say that I love doing what I do. I have to work hard but being able to spend quality time with my family is worth its weight in gold,” says Mark.
By consistently winning new business each month, Mark’s client base is growing considerably - he is now rapidly approaching his 150th website sale. Mark is increasingly benefitting from a large amount of client referrals, which is testament to his hard work and the quality of the products he markets.
