How fast can you roll out a Digital Experts Academy Network Worldwide ????

I wrote an article on the expansion of our chain of Digital Experts Academy franchises HERE just under a month ago. How are we doing ??
How fast can you roll out a global Digital Experts Academy franchise ??
Well, in just under a month we have franchises established in Virginia, U.S. , the Gold Coast, Australia
( 2 ), Warsaw, Poland and London, U.K. as well as the Head Office here in Lichfield. Other D.E.A. teams are also expanding their franchises as we aim to create 1000 Digital Marketing Experts by 2015.
We also have advanced discussions with another half dozen or so people.
The crazy thing is that we have opportunities going back and fore across the world as each of our team get’s online and starts talking to their networks.
In our team we have a lot of business experience including:
Michael Nelson – former Strategy Coach to the White House, based Virginia.
Sandra Hanna and Adelaide Kingsnorth – Global Callanetics Entrepreneurs, based Gold Coast.
Chris Butler – CEO and co-founder of WeCanDoBiz – a 21,000 member global network, based London.
Malgorzata Krukowska, Warsaw.
With this level of experience and expertise we are able to help new Digital Experts Academy franchisees get up and running very quickly.
We all help one another as much as we can and we all have slightly different skills and experience to offer. We are thinking ahead all the time.
We use email, social media and especially skype to talk to one another.
Of course we have the Six Figure Mentors and PRO U communities to help us aswell – particularly Martyn Hickey in the U.K. and Mark Hayes in the U.S. Stuart Ross and Jay Kubassek are always there if we need them.
I have built franchises before but never at this speed and with this level of co-operation. Also, almost definately without this level of FUN !!!!
I think the reason that it is all progressing so rapidly is that it is a FANTASTIC business model. It is also great timing for this business model. It is a set of products in an industry that has an almost limitless potential and will last until the forseeable future.
When I evaluate startup businesses I look at a few main things: People, Proposition, Profit, Potential, and Plan. I am not going to go through all of these but it is obvious that they all exist in spades. This is what we can all see as soon as we look into the Digital Experts Academy opportunity in more detail.
