The Internet is a high demand, evolving, growth industry.
According to a recent study by Boston Consulting Group, by 2016, there will be 3 billion Internet users globally—almost half the world’s population, and the Internet economy will reach $4.2 trillion in the G-20 economies (up from 2.3 trillion in 2010). If it were a national economy, the Internet economy would rank in the world’s top five, behind only the U.S., China, Japan, and India, and ahead of Germany. Furthering this growth, mobile devices (smart phones and tablets) will account for four out of five broadband connections by 2016. And according to IBM, a total of 1 trillion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2015.
Internet users and businesses need help.
As consumer Internet usage continues to skyrocket, the need to educate people about rapidly changing trends increases and so does the need to service the business owners who are trying to target them. These businesses need to rely on web professionals to help market their products and services online. They are looking for a full range of professional Internet services, yet the Internet service provider industry remains dominated by small contractors with limited technical capabilities and credibility. That’s why WebWizards® is taking its proprietary method of web servicing and expanding it into a retail chain of individually licensed brick n’ mortar locations across America.

We guide you through it with step-by-step instructions.

No, the licensee does not need to meet any technical requirements but we highly recommend you hire at least one qualified web designer/programmer and at least one qualified technical support person familiar with web development and a full understanding of how web applications on the Internet work. If you are offering web related classes (highly profitable and sought after by customers), you should also seek the best qualified instructors possible locally.
All should go through training to become certified WebWizards Technicians or take our online certification tests.
Our Dealership Kits and Video Library provides all the necessary documentation needed to guide your staff through various customer support scenarios.
It depends on your location, how aggressive your advertising plan is and the amount of work your staff can handle. But, we are confident that we have built a system that should assure a realistic profit potential.
WebWizards licensing opportunities are available across the United States. We will work with you to identify and select a location in your area of interest. Each WebWizards licensee has a protected geographic territory that ensures no other traditional WebWizards Dealerships will be placed in an assigned area. Speak to our Licensing Team for additional details on the site selection process.
That’s up to you. You set the hours that best serves your community.
No. All licenses are based on retail units only – to gain maximum exposure of the WebWizards brand. Home based licenses are not issued. (You may however, become a Certified Web Developer through the WebWizards certification training courses (and work at home), but you will not be allowed to gain any licensee benefits, marketing materials, nor use of the registered trademark logo or mascot).
Yes, you may use your own dedicated servers to host your clients, but if you are using our online billing software, you would be using the WebWizards cloud servers. You may even set up your own servers networked within your retail location and we can even help you to set up such a configuration.
