ORCA Websites continues to enjoy excellent growth, with the help of an expanding national network of franchisees who work with local businesses and help them to increase their market and profitability by harnessing the power of the internet.

With so many consumers now shopping and researching online, local businesses have recognised the importance of a strong online presence. We help them by creating big brand, professionally designed websites, complete with e-commerce facilities, email marketing campaigns and the best search engine results.

The Franchisee's role is to spend time working with business owners, helping them to understand how the internet can increase sales and raise their brand profile, and then our team of technical experts do the rest.

Since its launch in 2006, over 60 franchisees have joined the ORCA team, operating within exclusive territories around the UK and the Republic of Ireland


We are perfectly positioned to take advantage of the current economic conditions as more and more local businesses look to the internet to help them become more profitable.

A recent report from the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has revealed that nearly half of the small businesses that use the internet to advertise their firm, increase their turnover by one fifth!

John Walker, the Federation of Small Businesses National Policy Chairman, said: "Despite the onset of an economic downturn, all small firms should look to the internet to maximise their sales and increase efficiency."

When you realise that there isn't a small business out there that you can't help, you'll appreciate just how big this market is!


As the UK's most popular internet franchisor, we're launching a NEW internet franchise called ORCA LOCAL... and we're giving it to you for FREE with the ORCA Websites franchise!


Every ORCA Websites franchise now comes with a full MONEY BACK GUARANTEE! So now you can start your own internet business without any risk whatsoever.


For many, the hardest part about starting and running a business is generating new business leads. New business is the life-blood of any organization and that's why we support all our Franchisees by setting up your business meetings for you.

Our highly trained Business Development Executives are at your disposal and will work on your behalf to ensure that you are meeting with the right people. With an industry busting conversion rate, we'll make sure that you're seeing as many clients as you want to.


The key to our success is in the time we give to every individual and we will work closely with you to ensure that your bespoke development needs are met via the ORCA Training Academy. Every member of the ORCA Management Team will make themselves available to you and our Business

Development Director, Magnus de Woul, will make regular trips to your exclusive territory to progress your training, help you research and target new clients and even attend client meetings with you.


Our aim is for every new franchisee to have their first client on board within four to six weeks of completing your initial three days training at the ORCA Academy. We have found that the average profit margin per website for new starters is between ?1,000 to ?2,000, so if you bring in just two new clients per month, your first year earnings will be substantial (between ?25,000 to ?40,000).
You should look to double this from thereon. You will also earn an annual residual income of ?125 from each of your clients' annual renewals - so with just 40 clients on board, that gives you ?5,000 per year, every year! And don't forget the earnings potential from your free ORCA Local site!


As a professional E-Business Consultant, you can earn significant revenues by providing your clients with Website Management Services, charging anywhere from ?100 to ?400 per month by helping to run their websites for them - you will even be able to take a commission per sale for the products they sell online!

These Management Services can be very lucrative and are all part of the client relationship building process - they are covered in detail as part of your training and include Search Engine Optimisation, Email Marketing and Website Content Updates.

Through the ORCA Websites brand, we've made it our business to understand the small business owner's mind-set. We don't use technical jargon but instead talk in terms that make sense to them and their
businesses and, like any good service provider, we build long lasting relationships with our clients that bring them back time and time again.

We have found that busy business owners prefer our professional, e-business consultancy approach, as
opposed to the "sales" techniques employed by media sales people.

We are not just 'selling' websites - we are providing a genuine, measurable and extremely effective online marketing strategy that enables our clients to promote their businesses more effectively.

We believe that a website should be a business tool that generates revenue from day one."
Steve Elles-Goldsmith, Creative Director

"After attending the initial 3 day training course, I managed to secure my first order just 10 days
later! The client had previously spent 18 mths and over ?3k with two different web design companies trying to get online, but to no avail. As soon as I'd presented their sample designs, they signed the order form there and then!"
Stuart Harling
Skipton Territory

"The support and encouragement I have received from ORCA has been absolutely second to none. If you have a problem you can speak with one of the team or a fellow franchisee (the ORCA blog is a great way to communicate) and a solution is found. I really feel as if I'm finally in control of my own career and I'm loving it!"
Graham Youd
Chichester Territory

"The franchisee is at the heart of the ORCA Business Model and I have been seamlessly integrated within their team, making me feel very welcome, comfortable and valued. I am amongst a strong and supportive team of head office staff and other franchisees; all keen to help each other to be successful. After a lifetime in the corporate world, I'm delighted to say it's finally a joy to go to work."
Doug Mellor
Guildford Territory

"Despite having absolutely no experience of web design or of marketing the benefits of the web, I am likely to over achieve my own plan for the business in my first year! All of my appointments have been made by the ORCA Business Development Team who are working their collective socks off to really good effect."
Peter Mann
Ipswich Territory

"When you realise that their isn't a business you cannot help, you'll understand just how huge this market is!"
Magnus de Woul, Business Development Director

"Before deciding to set up a website for my business I knew very little about developing a site. The team at ORCA guided me through the process, making every step of the journey easy and enjoyable. The one to one personal service has been invaluable and has produced a
really good looking and feeling web site that works brilliantly alongside the rest of my business."
Royston Bayfield, Director, Bayfield & Bartlam Opticians

"Our fully integrated ecommerce website has made a huge impact to the business. The site
generates an average of ?1000 per week with approximately 45% sales coming from overseas! We regularly sell to Japan, Australia, Malaysia and the USA and we're at the top of Google for our most popular items and brands - not bad for a little shop in Bradford! The team are great and they're always on hand when we need them."
Alex Shaw, Owner, AN-X Menswear


"The ORCA brand is extremely well respected and ORCA franchisees quickly become highly regarded members of their local business communities.

An ORCA Websites Franchise is your opportunity to join a select group of people who are committed to being the best they can be. We are extremely protective of our brand and our extremely successful business model. So, if you're happy with your lot, please do not respond.

Although technical experience is not necessary, we only recruit the most professional and highly motivated people who have the ability to build rewarding, long term business relationships and who have a burning passion to be their own boss.

We're not trying to put you off - we just want you to be aware of some of the realities before you go further."

Dean Watmough, Managing Director
