Solo-preneur Expanding Business Across Canada

Share Article

Small Business Entrepreneur is expanding across Canada by offering franchise licensing for a networking-based Web site that uniquely blends face to face networking with the explosion of Internet marketing. NetworkingToday.com makes it easy for entrepreneurs, sales people and professionals to grow their businesses, connect with each other, and build relationships.

When I launched the site, I couldn't buy a dot com domain - it wasn't available to small businesses in Canada. Of course when I purchased it this year it came with a hefty price tag.

Networking Today, London, Ontario's most comprehensive Web site (http://www.networkingtoday.com) for local networking groups, upcoming events, and business resources has expanded to open doors and connect professionals across Canada. Networking Today Franchise Inc. comes with a fresh new look and revamped site as it offers franchise licenses in new markets across the country.

Since 1998, Susan Regier, owner of Vantage One Writing (http://www.vantageone.ca), has published this monthly ezine as a way for entrepreneurs, sales people, and professionals to connect and build relationships…and grow their businesses. Starting as an eight-page printed publication delivered to 10,000 local businesses, it soon went online exclusively to reach a global audience with a local feel.

Since then, the site has grown rapidly and now includes comprehensive listings of 58 networking groups and more than 600 articles written by experts in various industries. And over the past year, it has grown from a solo enterprise to a team of twelve professionals with unique abilities to pull it all together.

"We've created a dynamic Web site that uniquely blends face to face networking with the explosion of Internet marketing…a winning combination that is growing exponentially," said Regier. "When I launched the site, I couldn't buy a dot com domain - it wasn't available to small businesses in Canada. Of course when I purchased it this year it came with a hefty price tag."

Regier has incorporated the company and set up the new searchable Web site with the help of Jayme Cousins from In House Logic (http://www.inhouselogic.com). The new site will easily support franchised Web sites, which will be added to the corporate entity as new areas are sold. "This is a unique opportunity to buy into an existing business system at a fraction of the cost of most franchised businesses. And the possibility for growth is phenomenal," said Regier.
Entrepreneurs and sales people understand that networking gives them the insight they need to stay ahead of the competition. But finding the ideal networking group or association to fit their schedules, their needs, and their budgets can be difficult. Networking Today makes it simple, ensuring professionals return to the site often.
