Citylocal – an entrepreneurs dream
Nazir Daud created Citylocal to be a city hub for each & every city in the UK.
Citylocal http://www.citylocal.co.uk/cities/Dundee -provides information about tourism, local news, local events, cinema listings, entertainment, businesses, dating and the weather in Dundee.
Unlike other business directories, Citylocal aims to be a fun place to be. You can date for free & make new friends. The site has free arcade games as well as allowing you to play interactive crosswords & sudoku puzzles.
Most people starting out in business struggle to raise the initial sum of money required to get on the first step of the ladder.
He has a novel approach to helping any entrepreneurs launch Citylocal in their area. “Franchisees will not have to pay the franchise fee for a full 12 months whilst they get their territory up & running. They will only have to pay a monthly fee of £300 per month with a minimum commitment of 12 months. Once they have built a successful business, then they will have an option to buy the franchise after a year”
Citylocal is “live” in Dundee & Mr. Daud is looking for people who have basic computer skills, drive, ambition and like to network with local business to launch it in other towns & cities.
He said “Local businesses in Dundee love the “look & feel” of Citylocal. The site is very easy to navigate making it a pleasure to use. An entrepreneur who enjoys interacting with local business can easily create a good source of income in a short time frame”
The franchise fee is very simple to work out. It is £1,000 per 10,000 populations. The maximum fee is £20,000. Population areas greater then 300,000 will be carved up into multiple territories.
He added “There are enough businesses in a small town / area of 100,000 people for someone to be successful. When you get to larger areas, then it becomes difficult for 1 person to visit & maintain the territory even if he has help at home. It only makes sense then to have additional people running different parts of the City”.
