More often than not individuals seeking franchise opportunities go with what they know. They are attracted to an easily recognisable brand or product in the marketplace that is "aged", for instance a traditional brick-and-mortar food franchise like Subway. This is a franchise brand that has been around for many years, it is established, it is easily recognisable by its branding and obvious to consumers wanting a fast meal or takeaway. However, many individuals and entrepreneurs alike may have overlooked the potential in investing in a home based franchise business opportunity. Believe it or not, these do exist. Here is a compilation of 10 home based business franchise ideas:
Health and Beauty Franchise
Home Improvement Franchise
Any one of the above franchise business ideas can be home based. I am particularly fond of internet franchise business opportunities, since this type of business is the most portable or mobile of the above mentioned home based franchises. An internet franchise business opportunity can be operated from anywhere worldwide provided you have good internet and phone access as well as a laptop and or desktop computer. Internet franchise is attractive for even more reasons including:
Leverage - Leveraging the internet and other sources to work on your behalf so that much of your effort is automated, meaning that your business can run 24/7, 365 days a year while you can be doing other things.
Eco-friendly - You reduce your carbon footprint environmentally by working from home as well as your paper usage since most of your business can be conducted online and filed on your computer.
No overhead - Having a home based internet franchise business means that you don not have to fork out money to rent space, pay for insurance, employees and other liabilities.
Return on investment - A home based franchise business, which is a proven business model, can yield an 80% profit margin and a higher return on investment since capital outlay is much lower than a brick-and-mortar franchise business.
Choose your hours - An internet franchise business opportunity can enable you to choose when and where you work giving you more time to spend with your loved ones or engaging in a hobby or sport that you enjoy.
Mentor - A successful online franchise business plan will afford you the opportunity to learn from industry experts, providing you with full training and support including a personal coach or mentor to guide you when you need help.
Build your own brand - An internet based business franchise may also allow you to build your own brand, stamping your own individuality or creativity on your business.
These are just some of the reasons why I feel an internet or home based franchise business is a lucrative proposition for individuals seeking to work from home or existing entrepreneurs and investors seeking to invest in a low cost franchise. After weighing up the costs and doing your research on the business franchise options included, I am sure you may be just as convinced as I am that internet business opportunities are the way of the present and future.
