Husam Jandal, Director of WSI Master Franchise UAE, says, "Internet growth rate is highest in the Middle East. The rate of Internet usage growth exceeds the global rate more than fourfold, according to Internet World Stats. Not surprisingly, over the years I have seen many businesses grow drastically here over a short period of time by using the online marketing strategies WSI offers. At the same time, many businesses still require a lot of education to be able to enjoy exploiting enormous opportunities through the Internet leading to increased profitability."
"With Internet penetration in the UAE reaching 60.9% in 2009, as cited by Internet World Stats, it might now enter the list of highly Internet penetrated countries," Husam continues. "This explains the growing interest towards the WSI franchise in the UAE. Our goal is to further expand WSI's Internet marketing services to local, regional, and international organizations through developing a strong network of additional digital marketing consultancy offices like the one I have set up in 2005."
The goal of WSI's Master Franchise initiative is to expand WSI's leading edge Internet marketing services to the local business community in the UAE through the opening of additional Internet consultancy offices. As a Master Franchisee, Husam's office will be responsible for developing a network of single unit franchisees in the UAE and providing ongoing training and support to help them offer advanced, best in class online marketing solutions to local businesses.
Ron McArthur, President of WSI, says,
"I believe that WSI's presence in the United Arab Emirates through our Master Franchise office will drastically increase the profitability of local businesses in the region. The Internet continues to be the fastest growing communication and business channel today, and this offers an exceptional opportunity for business owners to market themselves. Husam's office has a full staff of Internet marketing experts who will continue to provide advanced Internet marketing strategies to local businesses, as well as help expand the network of Internet Marketing Consultants in the UAE."
WSI is seeking compelling, entrepreneurial-spirited individuals for the WSI franchise opportunity, and only those with a knack for consulting, marketing and helping businesses increase profitability will be considered.
With the opening of more Internet consulting offices in the region, regional businesses will experience many benefits with the availability of online marketing services, such as:
- conversion-focused Web solutions
- search engine optimization
- pay-per-click advertising
- social media marketing
- online advertising and more.
