As digital marketing and cloud computing taps into the new media revolution, the traditional franchising model is looking out dated, off the pace and out of step for independently minded entrepreneurs. 

As the revolution transforms the small and medium business landscape, the traditional franchise model is in urgent need of a rethink.

Traditionally, entrepreneurs have taken one of three steps into self-managed small business: Start a new business from scratch, purchase an existing business, or buy into a franchise system.

Under the old laws of business, franchises afforded the perceived comfort of an established brand; a tried and tested product or service range; established operational procedures and processes; and, in some rare cases, the backing of big-budget marketing and advertising campaigns coming out of head office. All with guaranteed maximum financial reward by drawing a circle around your growth with postcodes, suburbs or products.
