A great opportunity for working parents has presented itself in localpeople, an online hyperlocal community network of websites, currently making new sites available throughout the country. The extended network creates the opportunity for those with an entrepreneurial spirit to essentially run their own unique social-media centres within the heart of their local communities.

This opportunity is extremely well-suited to mothers and/or fathers who are passionate about their local area and wish to work flexible hours from home while dedicated to building a thriving business and attractive income.

The new sites follow the success of the initial localpeople sites already operating in the South West, South East, London, the Midlands and the North. The roll-out reaches out across the rest of the UK including Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Northcliffe Digital are looking for individuals that are committed to their community and would like the chance to run their own sites as a franchise with the support and expertise of a well established national media company. The franchise could be particularly attractive to mums or dads wanting to start their own business from home, and manage their own time to earn a good income.

The role entails managing the editorial content, facilitating discussions and highlighting important issues creating an active and connected online community, while monetising the site through several channels including display advertising, enhanced business listings, and digital marketing solutions for local businesses to increase their sales and online presence. This represents an excellent opportunity to build a substantial and sustainable income.

The franchise fee for each site will cost a one-off investment from £6,995 + VAT depending on the size and viable business opportunity in the area, and a percentage of the price is re-invested in comprehensive training, marketing tools and materials to ensure the long-term success of your business.

As members of the British Franchise Association localpeople meet the high standards required for membership enabling franchisees to feel secure that the investment they are making will deliver an ever developing, well supported opportunity.

The localpeople franchise represents an attractive, low-risk state of the art business proposition and excellent return on investment.
