BLAM! Websites & Apps enables franchisee partners to start their own digital marketing businesses.
The products and services provided by BLAM! Websites & Apps are aimed at small businesses that wish to remain at the cutting edge of this fast-moving sector. BLAM! Websites & Apps was co-founded by Gareth Manger and Grant Stain three years ago. The pair have over two decades of experience building websites.
The BLAM! team consists of designers, professional marketeers and business consultants, who are all focused on supporting its network of partners with the tools they need to run their own businesses.
All websites and apps supplied by BLAM! are built in the UK. The websites give customers a personalised experience, which has been proven to boost sales. This experience is based on the time of day an individual visits the site, their location and how many times they’ve visited the site in the past.
The apps can be used by iPhone and Android devices and include features that can showcase special offers, enable a company to communicate directly with customers and provide a loyalty points system that can encourage repeat business.
A franchisee partner’s role is to market and sell BLAM! Websites & Apps products to small businesses that require a professional online presence.
As well as the set-up fee, partners pay the following monthly fee depending on the package of training and support they require:
• DIY - £99. For this, partners receive a licence to sell Blam! Websites & Apps products and marketing courses; a customer relationship management system; access to an account manager Monday-Friday from 9am-8pm; partner resources, including presentations, videos, articles, mind maps and audio material; and a business planning meeting with co-founder Grant Stain to finalise pricing and business growth strategy. With this package, franchisee partners build customers’ websites and apps.
• DIFY - £299. As well as time with a mentor, partners also receive an enhanced customer relationship management system that includes the BLAM!-Ability function to help you plan your day and track business goals and targets; free website and app design services; and an AI website and mobile app that can be used to market your business.
• Elite - £599. This level of investment entitles partners to a one to one session with top mindset coach David Rahman; enrolment on a mentoring programme with a Blam! Websites & Apps business coach; an invitation to join the company’s mastermind group of partners; details of new products and services developed by Blam! Websites & Apps; and events and meetings at the company’s head office.
Franchisee partners are allowed to set their own prices and determine their sales strategy, although a guide to suggested pricing is available if required. In addition, franchisee partners are not required to make a certain level of sales to continue trading under the Blam! Websites & Apps brand name.
To date, Blam! Websites & Apps has set up over 300 franchisee partners as tech entrepreneurs in five countries.
The company has franchisee partner opportunities available across the UK. Potential investors should contact the company direct for full details.
According to the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills, there were 5.6m small businesses active in the UK in 2018, which make up 99 per cent of all companies operating in the private sector.
Many of these businesses require websites and apps to market their products and services and keep ahead of their competition. And as this is such a specialist and fast moving sector, the majority of them use the services of a company like those operated by Blam! Websites & Apps franchisee partners.
Once their sites and apps are operational, small businesses will want to maintain their competitive edge by ensuring they continue to use the latest cutting edge techniques and technologies, which potentially means additional income opportunities for Blam! Websites & Apps’ franchisee partners.
Digital marketing is a cost-effective way for small businesses to reach their potential customers when compared to most other forms of advertising and promotion. It’s also a good way to target a particular type of customer, while results are easy to track, giving small businesses an accurate indication of the return on their investment.
The size of the market and the effectiveness of this method of promotion for small businesses means some established BLAM! Websites & Apps franchisee partners earn six-figure incomes.
The company states that a monthly income of £8,000 is achievable by the second year of trading.
The company has offices in Cardiff and the Midlands.
No design or sales skills are required to become a BLAM! Websites & Apps franchisee partner.
Sales and product training takes place over two days at the company’s Midlands office, where you’ll also meet BLAM! Websites & Apps’ co-founders and head office support team.
In addition, BLAM! Websites & Apps provides its franchisee partners with comprehensive training via its partnership with DigitalMarketer, a company based in Austin, Texas that counts among its clients the likes of Uber and Shopify. Topics include email marketing, copywriting, customer acquisition and analytics and data.
Monthly training sessions at BLAM! Websites & Apps’ Midlands offices are organised, as are webinars for its franchisee partners based overseas.
Franchisee partners also receive free membership of the BLAM! Academy, an online community where you can engage with fellow tech entrepreneurs and keep up to speed with all the latest developments in the industry.
BLAM! Websites & Apps’ online partner resource centre gives individuals access to the know- how the company has accumulated during its time operating in the online sector whenever it’s required.
An account manager is assigned to each franchisee partner, who can be contacted by telephone, email or be met face-to-face.
The first step is to schedule an online demo with a member of BLAM! Websites & Apps’ partnership team through its website. Potential franchisee partners will be able to have any questions they have about the opportunity answered at this stage.
One-to-one discovery days are also available, which take place at BLAMA! Websites & Apps UK offices.
Once all due diligence has been completed by both parties, a 20 per cent deposit is payable, followed by the outstanding balance of your initial investment 14 days later.
Your account manager will then make contact and business set-up will start, which includes downloading and setting up the BLAM! app, creating your brand identity with the help of BLAM! Websites & Apps, planning sessions and completing the in-house and online training courses.
