Did you know that the average time a visitor spends on a single web advertisement is less than 2.4 minutes? You might ask, so what? What it means is that you have less than 2.4 minutes to explain a) who you are; b) what you do; c) why should they join you; and d) what the requirements are for becoming your franchisee--and still leave them time to fill out the application.

Belgium's proposed franchise law (the "Proposed Law") seemed to be headed for final adoption on October 18, 2005; however, the Belgian Senate had other ideas. The Senate took up the bill for reconsideration prior to the October 18th deadline, so the bill is now back in a state of limbo while the Senate debates whether to make changes to the draft that was approved by the Belgian Chamber of Representatives on July 7, 2005. The Belgian Senate has 60 days to decide whether revisions need to be made to the Proposed Law. If the Senate revises the Proposed Law then the bill will be sent back to the Belgian Chamber of Representatives for further consideration.
