Toronto, Canada, April 12, 2011 --(PR.com)-- WSI, the world's #1 Internet franchise, announces the opening of a Master Franchise office representing Czech Republic and Slovakia. Located in Prague in Czech Republic, this office will be operated by Jiri Drbohlav and Milan Drbohlav. According to WSI Corporate, these two individuals have displayed outstanding business acumen and strong entrepreneurial skills, earning them the opportunity of becoming WSI's Master Franchisees for the region. The goal of WSI's new Master Franchise office is to expand the company's digital marketing services to businesses across Czech Republic and Slovakia.
"The growing population of Internet users around the world coupled with the emergence of digital communication tool shows that media today is being digitized at a rapid rate", said Ron McArthur, President of WSI. "More and more consumers are leveraging the Internet to find information, research products and services and read and share reviews before doing business with a company. I believe that WSI's presence in Czech Republic and Slovakia through the opening of this new Master Franchise office will drastically increase the profitability of local businesses in the region. With the expansion of WSI digital marketing services, local companies will be able to leverage the Internet to grow their business."
The goal of WSI's Master Franchise initiative is to expand WSI's leading edge Internet marketing services to the local business community in Czech Republic and Slovakia through the opening of additional Internet franchise offices. As the region's Master Franchisees, Jiri and Milan will be responsible for developing a network of single unit franchisees in the region and providing ongoing training and support programs to help them provide best-in-class online marketing solutions to companies of multiple industries.
With a strong background in financial services, Jiri brings to the table 20 years' worth of experience in senior-level positions focused on regional business development. On the other hand, Milan comes from a technology background with a well balanced skillset combining management, business and IT. Together, they lead a skilled team of business developers and digital marketers who have been equipped to provide training and support for new WSI Internet franchisees.
Jiri Drbohlav said, "Internet marketing is one of the few very dynamically growing industries in the globalizing economies. The Internet is the only media where advertising spending grew rapidly in the year 2010 while the overall advertising spending remained stagnate. Very similar development is expected also for the year 2011. This places an Internet franchise like WSI in a very competitive position."
"As WSI Master Franchisees in Czech Republic and Slovakia, we are very happy that we can introduce the #1 brand in Internet marketing worldwide to the local business partners", Milan Drbohlav added. "Our goal is to help them to understand the importance of Internet marketing and social media in the current environment to become more successful, and we are looking forward to heavily expanding WSI's market share in this very interesting and fast-growing industry."
With the opening of additional digital marketing consulting offices in the region, businesses will have more access to Internet marketing services, such as conversion-focused web solutions, search engine optimization, pay-per-click advertising, social media marketing, content marketing and more.
