WSI Opens a Master Franchise Office in United Arab Emirates

Internet marketing services expanding across Dubai and abroad.

Toronto, Canada, January 28, 2010 --( WSI, the world’s #1 Internet services franchise, according to industry leading Entrepreneur Magazine, announced today the opening of a Master Franchise office in United Arab Emirates. Located in Dubai City, this new office will be operated by Husam Jandal’s organization, and is the fifth WSI Master Franchise to open since the program started in November 2008. Husam, who has been an active single unit franchise with WSI since September 2005, has shown outstanding success in the field of Internet marketing, earning him the opportunity to open a Master Franchise office in the region.

Ron McArthur, president of WSI, says, “I believe that WSI’s presence in the United Arab Emirates through our Master Franchise office will drastically increase the profitability of local businesses in the region. The Internet continues to be the fastest growing communication and business channel today, and this offers an exceptional opportunity for business owners to market themselves. Husam’s office has a full staff of Internet marketing experts who will continue to provide advanced Internet marketing strategies to local businesses, as well as help expand the network of Internet Marketing Consultants in UAE.”

The goal of WSI’s Master Franchise initiative is to expand WSI’s leading edge Internet marketing services to the local business community in UAE through the opening of additional Internet consultancy offices. As a Master Franchisee, Husam’s office will be responsible for developing a network of single unit franchisees in UAE and providing ongoing training and support to help them offer advanced, best in class online marketing solutions to local businesses.

Husam Jandal, CEO of TBS (WSI Master Franchise in the UAE), says, “Internet growth rate is highest in the Middle East. The rate of Internet usage growth exceeds the global rate more than fourfold, according to Internet World Stats. Not surprisingly, over the years I have seen many businesses grow drastically here over a short period of time by using the online marketing strategies WSI offers. At the same time, many businesses still require a lot of education to be able to enjoy exploiting enormous opportunities through the Internet leading to increased profitability.”

“With Internet penetration in the UAE reaching 60.9% in 2009 as cited by Internet World Stats, it might now enter the list of highly Internet penetrated countries,” Husam continues. “This explains the growing interest towards the WSI franchise in the UAE. Our goal is to further expand WSI’s Internet marketing services to local, regional and international organizations through developing a strong network of additional Internet marketing consultancy offices like the one I have set up in 2005”.

In addition to the United Arab Emirates, WSI also has Master Franchise offices located in the Baltics, Brazil, Cyprus and Bahrain. We are actively seeking compelling, entrepreneurial-spirited individuals for the WSI Master Franchise opportunity. Only those with a knack for sales, marketing and helping local businesses increase profitability will be considered.

WSI’s role is to ensure businesses realize the full profit potential of the Internet. Our Internet Marketing Consultants utilize a detailed set of processes to consistently deliver effective online marketing strategies for their clients. With the opening of more Internet consulting offices in the region, businesses will have more access to online marketing services, such as conversion-focused Web solutions, search engine optimization, pay-per-click advertising, social media marketing and more.
