CityLocal Franchise

A home business opportunity where you are able to work from home and build a repeat income stream; that is CItyLocal. Would you like to make a huge impact on local businesses and the people within the community that you live and work in.

The CityLocal Franchise is all about promoting and supporting local businesses whilst at the same time informing the local community of what is going on in their area. In short the CityLocal web site & franchise puts you at the centre of your community.

This is a business where you can work from home, have no stock to buy, and has a low cost initial franchise fee, with the opportunity to create a strong repeat income stream for your future. Some clients will pay you annually; lump sums always come in handy; others will choose to pay you monthly, providing you with a regular monthly income stream.

At CityLocal we have established a national network of web sites that can be customised to reflect your local area and your community. The content is updated daily and this means that many of your visitors will choose to come back to your website daily.

Our sites are not just a network of local business adverts, like other directories, but are also full of good quality content and an important information source for the community. You do not require any technological or design skills to operate your local website from home. The framework for your web site is already built for you as long as you can work with a basic word processor, you will be able to manage your site.

We are continually investing in the web site to ensure that the number of services you can provide to your local community keeps growing. With years of experience, investment and development our team provides you with a modern web site that is easy to use for you, your clients and your visitors.

The CityLocal website site works just as well on tablets and smartphones, as well as on normal devices like laptops and desktops. Our site provides full integration with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Googleplus. Visitors can share and recommend business listings, local news, local jobs, adverts and more using these tools.

We supply all you need to make an impact for your customers using social marketing, including your own CityLocal branded Facebook page. Now we also we have our own SmartphoneApps so that local surfers can use our website features on their mobile phones.
