Franchising Requirements

The following are needed to be an Surge Marketplace franchisee:

1. Training – You need to be a graduate of the course/s you want to franchise. If you are only the franchise owner and not the trainer/coach, you can have the trainer/coach do the training.

2. College Degree – The Surge Marketplace trainer/coach needs to be a graduate of any degree. It is one of the coach’s roles to check assignments, correct grammar rules, and establish the students’ freelancing branding. Thus, the coach needs to be a college graduate to effectively guide students towards online job success.

3. Territory – Territories are areas (cities/provinces, a total of 10M population of the target market) each franchisee can focus on marketing. This will allow the franchisee to establish authority in the chosen location. Territories also ensure Surge Marketplace franchisee’s profits as there will be no overlapping of marketing places.

4. Course – The franchisee needs to communicate what course/s will be franchised.
