How was The NanoNet originally conceived and started?
I am from a large family and have always felt it was very unique that each of us ran our own small business. When discussing some of the advertising/marketing roadblocks among these small businesses, the Nano Net was born. We wanted to find a way to support the local economy. While also helping small businesses compete against the Multi-billion dollar marketing campaigns. The Nano Net is the solution. It will bring small businesses to their most valued demographic, those that live within a 20 mile radius.

What is your favorite advice for new franchisees to help them succeed?
You won't be able to build your city in a day, but no great company can. As David Bly, a politician from Minnesota, said, "Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you haven't planted." Hard work and dedication are the key to making Nano Net successful. Make a plan including goals for yourself, and stick to it.

There are 5.9 billion mobile subscribers in the world today.

What was your background and experience before founding this franchise?
My husband and I have owned several successful small businesses. The most challenging side of the business for us was knowing which stream of marketing was working for us, and where to spend our limited marketing budget. The Nano Net provides customers with instantly updated, trackable information 24 hours a day.
A business can see who has viewed their coupons, what time of day, how many customers have "locked" their deal all accessible from any internet connection. Also, a business can change the offer that is posted on the Nano net as many times a month as they would like. Using our easy to use interface, there is no expensive formatting or having coupons sit out there for months at a time.
Do you have any franchisee testimonials or success stories that you would like to share?
My husband was laid off from his job when the recession hit. We did not know what we were going to do. A friend of my told me about The Nano Net, so I thought, what do I have to lose by calling? Within a week, I had my territory outlined and everything I needed to be successful. I instantly realized that I had not just started a company, but I had joined a family: The Nano Net family.
The support was amazing. Within the first month, I had my city built and 30 businesses signed up.
