Along with the rest of the world, our WSI Internet Franchise has witnessed the effects of the unsteady economy of recent years. And the US economy in particular has experienced a downturn unlike all the rest. So, naturally, WSI took this opportunity to launch our Investing in America” Program. We are, after all, extremely committed to investing in our community and doing our part in helping to re-build a promising post-recession America.

Essentially the Investing in America Program offers 30 of our world-class digital marketing franchise units at a massively discounted fee of 50%! And we are certain that with its objectives to restore the American economy and to actively give back to the community, this program is perfectly suited for US-based military veterans looking to start their own business.

Aligned with the compassion required to serve in the American military, our Investing in America Program includes the requirement to “pay it forward.” More specifically, those who are awarded a WSI Internet Franchise through this exclusive program will be required to proactively take part in local community outreach initiatives. Ultimately, our goal is not only investing in your career, but to also give back to as many American communities as possible. This pay it forward component to the program is one that we knew would resonate well with American military veterans, especially because they never fail to rise to the occasion!

Further, the WSI Internet Franchise Opportunity is one that aims to always remain one step ahead of the game and capitalizes on the endless technological innovations brought about through the Internet. Military veterans will immediately recognize the profitable opportunities in digital marketing. They’ll also be sure to appreciate WSI’s proven, world-class systems that serve as the blueprint for leveraging those opportunities. In a crowded franchise marketplace, this is a unique chance to be a part of one of the most attractive models available, all the while benefiting from the independence to set your own hours and build the lifestyle you really want.

Together, WSI and American military veterans can work to rebuild the US economy, support charitable causes, and lead the way in ground breaking, best in class digital marketing solutions.

Read more about US-based military veterans and the exciting opportunities in WSI’s Investing in America Internet Franchise Program.

In the spirit of WSI’s one-of-a-kind Internet franchise opportunity – the Investing in America” Program – we are recognizing some of the extraordinary individuals who are already a part of the WSI Internet Franchise Network. And since one of the exclusive groups that this special program is available to is American Military Veterans, one particular WSI Consultant that comes to mind is Army Veteran, Ron Packer.

Based out of California, Ron welcomed the challenge to open a WSI Internet franchise back in 2003 and has since been able to build and maintain a profitable Internet Consulting business. Notably, Ron’s success continues, even in the face of the economic challenges across the United States. And comparatively, helping to re-build the economy is one of the very philosophies behind the creation of Investing in America. Ron is one of the exceptional entrepreneurs who have recognized a formula for success that will excel even in difficult economic circumstances.

“WSI continues to provide additional tools and knowledge that help me update my business model, and they’ve given me the opportunity to work cooperatively with other franchisees and vendors. WSI definitely provides the framework for success.” – Ron Packer

And in relation to the group of US Military veterans that this WSI Internet franchise opportunity is geared toward, Ron has an admirable history with 5 years on active duty in the Army and 21 in the Reserves. It was this experience that acted as a large contributing factor in his path to owning a WSI Internet franchise.  You might even say that his Military background instilled in him essential experience to be successful in the world of digital marketing.

“My experience in the Military gave me the skills I needs to operate a WSI franchise. I had the ability to work with disparate teams of people, help identify specific goals and objectives, and develop, implement and coordinate projects.” – Ron Packer

Though this program speaks to the unique abilities of Military veterans, and works to improve the poor economy, Ron is also the perfect example of someone who has fulfilled the third objective of the Investing in America Program: he continuously aims to “pay it forward.”

“All you have to add is personal initiative, ethics and the ability to work with people. As a small business owner, I am more closely aligned with the local community than at any other time in my career.” – Ron Packer

It is individuals like Ron Packer and the success they’ve accomplished as a WSI Internet franchisee that have inspired us in this program’s creation and has assured us that a program like Investing in America has been a long time coming!

WSI’s unique Internet franchise opportunity was mentioned in yesterday’s edition of USA Today – Franchising Today in an article discussing success stories of individuals who have successfully transitioned from unemployment to franchising.

While much of the world still struggles with soaring unemployment rates, more and more professionals are discovering the endless benefits of investing in a franchise! WSI digital marketing franchisee, Paul DeBernardi, outlines how franchise ownership has offered him valuable support.

Before opening his WSI Internet franchise in the summer of 2010, Paul found himself laid off from two separate Internet securities companies within only one year.

“I wanted to be in charge of my own destiny and not be at the whim of a corporate layoff, continually starting over and trying to prove myself in new organizations,” said DeBernardi. “Franchising made sense to me for all the obvious reasons when compared to starting a business from scratch.”

Internet Company Cuts Franchise Deal for Vets

Posted by trinda On May - 6 - 2011

WSI in the News: franchise duo featured in online business journal “Inside Business”

 it’s been particularly rewarding to see some of the military vets in the WSI franchise network get recognized in the media. In an issue of Inside Business: The Hampton Roads Business Journal, the story of WSI Consultants Darren Kincaid and Mark D’Etcheverry was featured, highlighting their journey from the US Air Force to profitable WSI Internet franchise owners. 

This article, entitled “Internet Company Cuts Franchise Deal for Vets,” showcases exactly that! The Investing in America Program was designed to enable vets to join the WSI Internet franchise opportunity for half of the original price. This news article highlights the successes of Darren and Mark, one of which includes a growth in revenue by 500%! In addition to their impressive financial successes in our less-than-perfect economy, their franchise ownership has also allowed them to set their own flexible hours – and even work from their sailboat for a week! This is exactly the success that we know other military vets can accomplish with WSI through Investing in America

Here’s a short excerpt from the article: 

After his last day of active duty on Oct. 31, 2006, Darren Kincaid stumbled upon a good lead while doing a job search – one that led him to his current job with long-time friend Mark D’Etcheverry. Since January 2007, the duo has worked for a Toronto-based company called We Simplify the Internet. They bring in about $750,000 a year through their WSI franchise in Virginia Beach. Now they want to spread the word to retired vets looking for job opportunities, like they were.

Doing Business in Uncertain Times

Posted by trinda On May - 4 - 2011

Jobs today are scare and many executives spend months and months only to find no one wants to pay them what they are worth and that there a fewer than ever opportunities out there.

This brings someone to a cross road to do one of three things:

1 Keep looking

2 Retire

3 Start their own business

These three options are very different and one needs to really look at what their expectations are. Whatever it is you choose to do you need to make sure that it is going to help you to reach you goals family, financial and business.

When looking at businesses you need to take a few things into consideration:

1 Do I start my own business and figure out how to build the business systems and processes myself

2 Do I purchase an existing business such as a restaurant or retail location

3 Do I look at a franchise which already has a proven system that I can follow

For someone who is more creative/entrepreneur  and wants to build a business from the ground up developing marketing strategies, business strategies, a business model, building a client base starting their own business maybe more appealing.

For someone who wants a fixed location that is already there then purchasing an existing business maybe the way to go but of course this leaves the questions that if the business is successful and profitable then why are they selling it?

And for someone looking to take their past business experience, skills and relations they have built over the years and put them into a working business model without having to reinvent the wheel and figure things out a franchise may be a good option.

Regardless of which of these is you it is also important to look at the market itself and what opportunities or needs exist in today’s market.

It is well known that many economies around the world have been hit hard by recent economic downfalls but that does not mean that every industry has been hit the same. Think for a minute about what happens in times like these….

Businesses  can’t stop doing sales or they will no longer be in business in fact the exact opposite happens they need to work even harder to find new customers, to keep the ones they have, to stand out more from their competition. Today the most effective and inexpensive way to do business is through the internet; online media, being visual to their customers, social media and speaking to the customers where they are looking for information.

Ask yourself a few questions:

1 Can you see yourself in a consulting business?

2 Do you want a business that has long term relations and residual revenues?

3 Can you follow a proven system?

4 Do you like to continually learn?

If you have answered yes to at least 3 of these questions maybe it is time that we spoke to determine if the WSI Franchise is the right fit for you and if you are the right fit for us.

“Going Global: Worldwide Expansion Within Reach for Small Businesses” – Business News Daily, March 31, 2011

Here’s a great success story about one local business owner and his journey to expand his business internationally.

Last week WSI Franchise owner and Digital Marketing Consultant, Doug Schust, was featured in a Business News Daily article discussing the challenges and successes of his WSI business’ international expansion. is an online resource for people planning to start a business and for those seeking insight on news and trends affecting small business owners.

Originally based out of Waterloo, ON, Canada, Doug aspired to venture into the international markets and expanded his WSI franchise to Ecuador in 2008. And considering the great successes he’s earned since expanding, his next plans are to take his WSI business to the United States as well as the United Kingdom.

Here’s a short excerpt from the article:

A franchise owner since 1997, Schust always planned on expanding globally, and got the opportunity to do so three years ago in Ecuador. The move has been a successful one, with Schust recently landing a seven-figure account with Metropolitan Touring, a travel company based in Ecuador. Reaching this point, though, has been a long process, Schust said, noting it took two years to get the Ecuadorian franchise running as smoothly as the one in Canada. “The speed in which we all move is a little different,” Schust said of working in different countries. “To get everyone on the same page was a bit of a transition.”
