WSI Organizes Business Opportunity Seminar Series in the Baltics
Aspiring Entrepreneurs in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania will Learn the Ins and Outs of Starting Their Own Franchise Business
Toronto, Canada --(PR.com)-- WSI, the global leader in Internet marketing solutions operating in over 80 countries worldwide, is organizing a 3-city seminar series in the Baltics to educate aspiring entrepreneurs on how to run a profitable franchise business. The business opportunity seminar series will kick off in Tallinn, Estonia on March 1, move to Riga, Latvia on March 3 and end in Vilnius, Lithuania on March 5. With two sessions taking place in each city, local entrepreneurs will learn the ins and outs of operating a successful business and the revenue opportunities available through the WSI franchise.
Ron McArthur, president of WSI, says, "Over the past year, the word 'recession' resounded among various markets all over the world, impacting the decisions of business people everywhere. Many people were laid off from their long-time corporate positions where they earned a comfortable salary, and were forced to look at other career options. As a result, WSI has seen a considerably increase in the number of Internet marketing franchise offices opening around the world. Through our business opportunity seminar series, WSI aims to educate entrepreneurs on the freedom and advantages of owning a business and the benefits associated with the WSI Internet marketing franchise opportunity."
The seminar series will be facilitated by Armin Tull, the WSI Master Franchisee in the Baltics. Joining the seminars as a special guest speaker will be Ray MacNeil, International Franchise Director at WSI Head Office. Ray will give attendees a 360-degree overview of a typical franchise system and the opportunities of WSI's Internet marketing franchise. There will be two sessions for each seminar:
- March 1 at 12 PM or 6 PM – City Hotel Portus, Tallinn, Estonia
- March 3 at 12 PM or 6 PM – Elefant Hotel, Riga, Latvia,
- March 5 at 12 PM or 6 PM – Reval Hotel Lietuva, Vilnius, Lithuania

Ray MacNeil, International Franchise Director at WSI Corporate, says, "According to ZenithOptimedia, this year, Internet advertising is expected to reach $13 million USD in Estonia, $12.9 million in Latvia and $18.9 million in Lithuania.
