As the owner of ShopBarrie.com, you'll provide local businesses with an internet marketing platform that enables them to sell online, be found on Google, send email newsletters and manage their social media accounts, as well as build websites and get assistance from dedicated account managers.
ShopBarrie.com already has hundreds of customers and generated six figures of recurring revenue last year.
The business is being licensed under the SHOPCITY.COM franchise-like 'City Manager' model, and you'll join dozens of other entrepreneurs across Canada in building a great business that leads the Shop Local movement in your community.
You'll have access to a turn-key team to help you build your market, including account managers, graphic designers, web developers, bookkeepers, online marketers and customer support agents.
Your online platform will continue to improve and evolve as technology changes, and you won't have to worry about the technical side of the business.
An ideal owner is someone who thinks like an entrepreneur, enjoys sales and marketing, likes talking to people, meeting and helping other business owners, wants freedom - control of your calendar so you can be there for your family, but is willing to work hard to build a company that generates $1m+ in recurring revenue.
Barrie is a market big enough to support 5-6 sales representatives. It's been run to-date with just a single corporate representative, or managed from outside the community.
We are looking for someone capable of managing a team, doing the marketing necessary to take the business to the next level, and building a great brand in the community.
We want ShopBarrie.com to be the model community for the ShopCity.com platform and will be heavily involved in working with the new owner to ensure this business reaches its potential.
There is more than $50k in cashflow currently that the new owner would receive.
There is already a substantial base of business participants and significant consumer usage and awareness.
The foundation is in place. For the right entrepreneur, this is an amazing opportunity to build a brand that everyone in Barrie knows, while your business grows to provide a huge recurring revenue stream.
For information, please fill out the form at www.shopcity.com/#contact or call Andrew Perkins at 416-576-5001.
With more than 15,000 businesses in Barrie, there is definitely the potential to build a $1m+ business.
