Toronto, Ontario, December 10, 2008... WSI, the number 1 Internet services business, according to industry leading Entrepreneur Magazine, announced today the opening of a Master Franchise office in the Baltics. Kristjan-Paul Raude of Tallinn has shown outstanding success as a single unit franchisee in Estonia, earning him the opportunity of becoming WSI's first Master Franchise in the region.
Ron McArthur, president of WSI, says, "WSI is dedicated to efficiently bringing small and medium sized businesses to the forefront of the Internet marketing era. Tapping into the profitability of online marketing is a crucial step forward for business owners in the Baltics, especially with the current global economic crunch. With his strong entrepreneurial background and expertise in the industry, I am more than confident in our decision to appoint Kristjan-Paul as the owner of a Master Franchise."
As a Master Franchise, Kristjan-Paul will be responsible for developing a network of single unit franchisees in the Baltics and providing ongoing training and support to help them offer high quality, best in class online marketing solutions to local SMBs. The goal of this initiative is to expand WSI's leading edge Internet marketing services to the local business community in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania through the opening of additional Internet consulting offices.
Kristjan-Paul Raude, WSI Master Franchisee in Tallinn, says, "I am incredibly honoured to receive this opportunity to help grow my market. The Baltics is in no way immune to the economic slowdown. And now more than ever, business owners need to properly allocate their marketing dollars toward a medium that will generate results that's the Internet. I look forward to developing a strong network of consultants in the region who will deliver WSI's proven online marketing solutions to local businesses all across the Baltics."
