This clientèle is primarily focused on the business sector with an emphasis on smaller businesses.

How to Apply and Training
Spoton.net applications can be handled via email or phone and follow a relatively simple process, especially when compared with some franchises I have looked at. As a Spoton.net franchisee you should have strong personal skills and arguably most importantly salesmanship. In return you will receive training on how to sell the Spoton.net service as well as training on the technical side of things so that you can successfully manage your business. As a Spoton.net franchisee you are guaranteed to have exclusive operating rights within a certain patch.
What is the Initial Investment?
The franchise fees for Spoton.net are very reasonable at just £12,495 + VAT. For this you get everything that you need to get started such as a laptop, sales leads etc.
How Much Can This Earn?
An existing Spoton.net franchisee claims that you can expect to exceed (the figures mentioned on the original review have now been removed at the request of a representative from Spoton). Spoton.net themselves suggest that £50,000 after 2 years of operation is a realistic forecast.
Although not technically your own business, Spoton.net offers an inexpensive way of working for yourself. I feel that the claimed earnings are perhaps a little exaggerated given the start up costs, but otherwise everything seems to check out. Perhaps the most off putting part of Spoton.net is that in many regards you are acting as a sales representative rather than in a traditional business role and this is something that some people would understandably begrudge paying for.
