I’ve always considered the possibility of owning a franchise. The lure of it to me was that it was a pre-built, pre-conceived business that is just handed to you with an instruction sheet for profitability. Then again, every single franchise owner I know tells me that owning a franchise is probably the most work they’ve ever done in their lives.
So… I’m not sure it’s for me. However, I am still considering it for someday. That’s why I was happy to see that my buddy Tony just launched a new franchise search engine at http://www.franchisenetworks.com/.
FranchiseNetworks is a global franchise opportunities and business opportunities search directory that connects franchise and business opportunity seekers with the appropriate franchisors or opportunity, through use of our lead generation and syndication technologies.
In other words, if you’re looking for a one-stop shop place to find a franchise opportunity, or to get your opportunity out there, then this is the place for you.
But why is this different that other franchise sites? Here’s what Tony told me in an email…
We believe we are the only true Franchise Opportunity and Business Opportunity search engine out there. We take searchers directly to the franchisor or business opportunity and bypass the middlemen and broker sites that clutter the results of Google and other search engines.
What I really love about this idea is that they are not afraid to take a saturated market such as franchises and create a better utility/tool around it. This new search engine solves problems, and solving problems is the #1 thing you need to do to be successful online.
