Toronto, Canada, May 13, 2011 – WSI, the world’s #1 Internet franchise, is pleased to announce that it has opened a new Master Franchise office in Morocco, meaning local businesses will have the opportunity to leverage WSI’s advanced digital marketing strategies. Located in Casablanca, Morocco, this office will be operated by Ahmed Laassri and Grant Erasmus. The pair will be responsible for developing a network of single unit franchisees in the region and providing ongoing training and support programs to help them succeed.
“The Internet continues to be the fastest growing communication channel today, giving business owners the opportunity to take their marketing strategies to the next level”, says Ron McArthur. “This places a digital marketing franchise like WSI in a very competitive position. With a modern business environment and several free trade zones and agreements, Morocco is an economically growing country. I believe WSI’s presence in Morocco through our Master Franchise office will drastically increase the profitability of the business community. With the opening of additional WSI digital marketing consulting offices, companies will have access to advanced Internet marketing services”.
With a strong background in IT, Grant brings to the table several years’ worth of experience operating a small educational hardware and software company and a Web design company in Ireland. On the other hand, Ahmed comes from a restaurant management background after starting 2 very successful, award winning restaurants in Ireland and a recycling business in Morocco. Together, they lead a skilled team of digital marketers and business developers who have been trained to support new WSI Internet franchisees.
“The increasing popularity of Internet usage in Morocco shows that the country is growing economically and leveraging new forward-facing technologies”, says Ahmed Laassri, WSI Master Franchisee. “This is exciting news for us, as we embark on delivering WSI’s digital marketing services to local businesses. We believe Moroccans will catch the WSI fire and get on board for success and reward!”
Grant Erasmus agrees, “Internet marketing is one of the very few growing industries in today’s globalizing economies. The market in Morocco specifically has progressed enormously in recent years. We look forward to initiating programs that will expand WSI’s presence in the region while educating businesses on the importance of digital marketing”.
The WSI Master Franchise program was introduced in November 2008 with the goal of expanding WSI’s leading edge digital marketing services to businesses all over the world. In addition to Morocco, WSI also has Master Franchise offices located in the Baltics, Cyprus, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Brazil, Spain, Central Spain, Egypt, France, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Portugal. WSI is actively seeking compelling, entrepreneurial-spirited individuals for its Master Franchise opportunity.
