Who are spoton.net?
In 2003, long before our franchise began, we saw an opportunity for our graphic design studio to expand into web design. We had found that editing our own website was a lengthy and difficult process, and knew that other business owners would be facing the same problem.
With this in mind, we set about creating our own content management system that was easy to use without the need for additional software - as a result, the it’seeze websites brand was launched for local customers in 2005.
it’seeze was an immediate success, with local businesses jumping at the idea of a professionally designed website that was easy to edit.
We soon had a large and loyal client base, and in 2008 we decided to franchise the brand as spoton.net so that we could offer it’seeze websites throughout the UK.
Today, we have it’seeze website and digital marketing offices across the UK and Ireland, and our franchise continues to thrive and grow. it'seeze websites are known for being professionally designed, simple to edit, and fully supported. We are now accredited members of the AFA (Approved Franchise Association) and EWIF (Encouraging Women Into Franchising).
When you join our ethical franchise, you'll have the power of a national brand behind you, and potential customers will be reassured by it'seeze's reputation for being incredibly reliable and easy to work with.
