choose Spotlight? After 6 years as a franchisee of a business that didn't have franchisee interests at heart, we set out to create more than just a franchise. We created Spotlight with the aim of replacing franchisees with true business partnerships. To achieve this we have created 3 areas of focus with specific aims:
Business Members Area Partners Spotlight (Us)
Business Members Spotlight must be cost-effective and deliver results.
Use Twitter to shout about your members
Area Partners Spotlight must be cost-effective and easy to use. It should allow area partners to have input on how Spotlight moves forward and grows. We want our network to work together to build both their individual businesses and the brand going forward.
Spotlight (Us) We are about working together in a profitable and positive environment - this is key. We are not looking to build a lifestyle business, we are looking to build a selfsustaining vehicle for business growth for members, partners, and Us.

first 25 clients (per area). Once you exceed 25
no further charge. For example, with 50 clients you would still pay only £250 a clients there is

does a Spotlight Area Cost? It is possible to make your area 'cost neutral' by splitting your area and growing your own Spotlight team.
You can subdivide your area and sell cities and towns to others which you would oversee and lead. Our model suggests:
£1,000 per Year Town Partner £500 per Year City partner
This means that you can easily cover the cost of your area, achieving a profit from day one. The Spotlight model means there are some limits to how much you can split your area and some associated costs which we can discuss.

"We love being part of Spotlight. For us the satisfaction of helping local businesses grow was a great attraction to the business. Being able to work from home, and having the flexibility to run the business around our lifestyle has been a huge bonus, along with the low startup costs.
The team at head office have been great – helping with graphic design work, ideas and strategies, support and training, as well as a great website, and innovative ideas to add extra income streams to grow our revenue. We highly recommend Spotlight to anyone looking to set up a new business in this exciting industry."
