The Internet franchise provides a creative way for just about anyone to earn an independent living. These businesses can be run from a home office or even from a kitchen table, allowing stay-at-home moms, retirees and even full-time employees to enjoy the freedom of earning money from their own businesses.
Some businesses are just naturally better suited to Internet franchising. Among the businesses well suited to running over the Internet are:
- Medical billing
- Specialty printing
- Travel booking
- Video business card opportunities
