B2B? B2C? What about HB2B?


There are many different types of business structures out there. All of them fall into two broad categories as to the targeted market, those being Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business-to-Consumer (B2C).

Maybe you are looking for something different.  You want to be your own boss, but you need a bit of flexibility.  What about HB2B?

What’s that?  Home-based-to-business.

You don’t even have to start something from scratch.  There are plenty of franchise business concepts to meet your entrepreneurial needs.  Let’s take a look at the potential:

  • Consulting:  Your home is your base, and you go out to meet with your different business clients.  Create value for your clients, making money as they make money.  A total win-win.
  • Sales:  Your clients might think you work out of a big office building.  Combine your sales and marketing skills, charming personality, and a franchised business concept – and you have a winning combination.
  • Services:  IT, digital marketing, facility maintenance and repair and many other options can easily hit the road.  Bring your talents to the people, and reap the rewards.

One of the great things about working as a HB2B franchised business concept, you have a franchisor that will provide you with the training and the tools.  You even have a network of other franchisees as a sounding board.

Want to know about more about franchising?  You can learn more by watching one of our upcoming free webinars listed to the right.  On July 15th, learn more about a B2B opportunity.  On July 16, we'll look at finding the right business for baby boomers.  On July 22nd, we'll examine if business ownership is right for you.  Either click on the links to the right, or visit frannet.com/bbetser for more information.

You can also contact me directly if you would like to set up a one-on-one free consultation.  All of  FranNet's consultations, events and webinars are FREE!  No fee, no obligation.  You can contact me at bbetser@frannet.com or 616-891-1374.

Be Different. Franchises are More Than Just Fries.

Two Webinars to Highlight Two Different Franchise Opportunities


When you hear the term franchise, there are two things that usually pop into mind.
  • Restaurants
  • Pro Sports Teams

Experian reported in 2014 that the top choice for entrepreneurial startups was restaurants.  10.6% of new businesses were restaurants.  Personal services accounted for 6.9%, miscellaneous retail for 6.6%, business services for 6.3%, and general contractors 5.5%.

According to the National Restaurant Association, there are already 1 million restaurant locations in the United States.  (70% of those are single-unit operations).

Here’s your chance to be different.  There are two FREE webinars coming up on Wednesday, June 24.

LIGHT MANUFACTURING
2:00pm – 3:30pm
Take a dive into a light manufacturing opportunity in a professional, business-to-business format.  Some of the highlights include:  traditional business hours, few employees with high skill levels, and high repeat business.

This webinar will feature the founder and president of the company, as well as several business unit owners in varying stages of growth.

HEALTH AND WELLNESS
8:00pm – 9:00pm
This concept offers two options, an owner-operator model or a semi-absentee model.  This high value franchise concept features a low start-up cost, a simple turnkey model and flexible schedules.  This concept also emphasizes a large charitable component within its community and offers not only the opportunity to make a difference, but also to make a living.
