Ron McArthur, as WSI’s President, is well-positioned to discuss the stages, or generations, that the Internet has evolved through. From the first stage of ‘brochure-ware’ websites that were flat and limited to today’s interactive, functionality-rich websites, the Internet has changed dramatically since the mid-1990s when WSI was founded. As the Internet changes the way we do business, Ron details why the WSI franchise opportunity is a unique one for entrepreneurs, giving them the tools and proven system they need to help small to medium sized businesses achieve unprecedented success online.
Ron explains how the WSI opportunity is as unique as the over
1500 WSI Internet Consultants around the world. Coming from
business backgrounds as diverse as sales and marketing and
information technology, WSI Consultants understand the needs of
their SME customers. They are entrepreneurs helping entrepreneurs –
that’s what makes a WSI Consultant so special. Ron believes that
all successful entrepreneurs possess the desire to be their own
boss and be successful, which means being a sales person, project
manager, marketer, book keeper and administrator.
