Advertising your gift experiences
While we advertise on your behalf and take bookings via our booking system, you will also be responsible for promoting the gift experience on your website and on social media. This will obviously promote the gift experiences to new customers for the benefit of yourself and family history gifts.
We find that once customers embark on a successful genealogy experience, they are likely to return, providing you with future income.
Should you apply and pass the job application process, we may also pay you a one off payment of £80 to help test the gift experience franchise with us.
You can still do your other genealogical work…
You do not have to work exclusively for us. While you work on our genealogy gift experiences, you are free to pursue other genealogical work with your own customers as long as they are not genealogy experiences.
