The WSI Consultants’ network is an invaluable source of knowledge, information, business innovations, industry best practices and real-life experiences in the world of Digital Marketing and Consulting. And we tap into this network on a daily basis in some of the following ways:
- The WSI Internet Consultant Advisory Council (ICAC) was formed in 2004 with 12 members elected to represent all regions of the world where we operate. ICAC members contribute ideas, share feedback and exchange best practices across the WSI network on an ongoing basis.
- Several classroom and virtual training initiatives at WSI include the 90-day Quick Start Program (QSP) conducted virtually for new Consultants, ongoing Area Rep Trainings in your region, daily webinars called “Coffee Breaks”, video presentations and so on. All of these are aimed at sharing best practices and case studies of success to encourage, teach and inspire everyone in our franchise community.
- WSI Excellence and Innovation (E&I) Conferences are global events with industry leading experts as presenters. These presentations are founded in the objectives of sharing best practices that can be adopted and duplicated in a flexible manner across cultural boundaries by WSI Consultants anywhere in the world.
- The WSI Mentoring Program offers Consultants the opportunity to team up and be mentored by their more experienced counterparts through a structured program involving collective business development, project delivery and customer relationship management.
- We also work closely with our partners in the WSI private e-Marketplace to continuously upgrade the skills and training that keeps our franchisees on top of the latest industry trends and demands of the SME market.
- We continually conduct market research around the world through our corporate headquarters and online, in order to keep our pulse on the needs of the SME market and global franchising trends. Participation in seminars, symposiums, trade shows and panel discussions is also a useful market information mechanism. WSI is a member of leading Internet industry associations like the Search Engine Academy and the Modular Development Technology Consortium.
- At all times, we make it our number one responsibility to reach out and touch our franchisees and their customers.
