Action In Network has designed it’s products and supporting infrastructure to be comprehensive, scalable, and robust so that it is readily able to provide similar services to a large number of other potential regional markets worldwide.
Every regional market is chosen to provide the ideal balance between being so small that it would not have enough consumers to be of interest to advertisers, and being so large that it would have no meaning to local businesses or consumers.
The core of what we do is based on a local media model and each Action in business is tailored to its local market and operates as an independent entity but with the synergy of the worldwide network.
Being part of a world-wide network gives you many additional advantages to you and your local business clients. Name recognition and National exposure being two of those advantages.

Initial Licensee Training
Our interests are fully aligned, we have a vested interest – Licensee’s success equals The Action In Network’s success…
The Action In Network prides itself on the quality of its developing in-house training program and ongoing training and support. The initial licensee training is delivered remotely via tele-conferencing and is organized and run by experienced Action in Network management, support, technologists, and in-house trainers.
The training is focused and structured with the purpose of enabling our licensed operators to learn all the essential skills required to make their Action in business a success.
All Licensed operators will be supplied with access to our operations manual to which they can refer to after the initial training, not to mention help and support is just a call away.

Initial Licensee Training
The financial success of any licensee, is mostly dependent on the Licensee themselves and the amount of effort put forward. Sales and marketing is a numbers game. The more contacts you make, the more sales you make. It is quite a simple formula. The sooner you contact potential customers and start the process, the sooner you will start to generate revenues.
The fixed costs of the business are low and, in most cases, you will initially begin working from a home office. As revenues increase and you start building an in house team, you will evolve into a sales office environment over time.
Action In Network city operations have huge potential and are really only limited by the licensees efforts and vision. We cannot Guarantee your success or your revenues, but the potential is unlimited. The dollar revenue potential when fully matured ranges from $500,000 – $2 million per year for a small area, and between $1 million and $4 million per year for a major urban region.
In an advertising-based business such as the Action in Network, the rate of revenue growth will be directly linked to the quality and quantity of sales resources applied to the business.
We expect one full-time salesperson to increase the net customer base by around twenty new customers per month and to up sell between 1 – 5 existing customers per month.
Depending on geography and resources, it makes perfect sense to build a qualified team of sales reps. The Action in Network is developing a sophisticated customer relations management (CRM) system to support both face-to-face and telephone-based sales and will be made available to licensees on a small per seat cost.
The Action in Networks business is based on delivering value for customers and, providing the right product is sold to the right customer, most customers renew again and again. Which means your income and business value grows year after year, as the renewals have very little marketing expenses accredited to the sales and thus are pure profit year after year.
The Action In initial licensing fees vary depending on the size and location of the licensed region, range between $29,999 and $49,999.
You will also need some working capital to tide you over as you build your revenue streams. Double your Licensing fee is recommended. The actual amount needed will vary depending on circumstances and abilities.
Financing may be available for qualified parties and production is one of those main qualifications. The main factors that are weighed to determine qualification are based on your skill-sets, your abilities, your financial backing, and our objective evaluation on the odds of your success.
If you are a US Veteran, we offer startup assistance based on sales revenue generated from the Action in Network’s “Battlefield to Boardroom Project”. This project is especially formulated to assist our hero’s returning from war. If you qualify, our program will cover the majority of the costs to place you into an agency agreement and train you, so do not hesitate to apply.
