. ORCA's Franchise Business Advisor John Thompson says: 'New franchisees do not need an IT background as ORCA provides a central bank of highly experienced website designers. The franchisees' responsibility is to source businesses that require a website building service and handle customer relations.'
Prospective franchisees will also be provided with ongoing extensive training and marketing and telesales support as part of the franchise package. Every franchisee will also have help from a team of web designers who will make websites to the clients' individual specifications.
Alison Henderson operates the Warwickshire-based franchise and before investing in ORCA, she worked as a Customer Relationship Manager for a corporate bank. She says: 'Every multi-million pound enterprise started life as a small business, so I'm delighted to be helping firms take on the big brands by using their website as a truly effective business tool. It really is their shopfront to the world as it maximises the company's advertising and enabling them to sell, literally, while asleep.
'What impressed me most about ORCA is its focus on the specific needs of individual businesses. Their team of specialist website designers produce tailored sites to enhance the business of particular customers. It's not just selling any old website for its own sake.'
