FRANCHISE

Comprehensive Franchise Marketing: Easily Evolving Your Brand & Network is Now Scalable.

Our job is to make your life as a franchisor easier. A franchise business has many moving parts — it helps to have an agency partner that understands the nuances of operating a franchise, and offers a turnkey, custom solution.

In the Franchise Disclosure Agreement, a franchisor provides a franchisee with three pillars:

  • The brand
  • An operational playbook
  • Support infrastructure


Here is how we support these three pillars:

The Franchisor/Franchisee Relationship

Over 80% of franchise owners mention online marketing support as a key factor in selecting a franchise. When you sell a franchise, you are selling marketing/advertising, and when it comes to franchise marketing operations we:

  • Understand the intricate dynamics of the franchisor/franchisee relationship.
  • Know the KPI’s and metrics for success that are important to you and your franchisees.
  • Develop the strategy for incremental co-op budgets for network-wide marketing programs.
  • Communicate the value of digital marketing to your franchisees, so they appreciate where the money is going and what the result will be.
  • Present and train franchisees on the company’s branding and marketing strategies.
  • Manage all Franchisor & Franchisee Cooperative Fund marketing initiatives on behalf of the network with our Managed Marketing (Corporate Managed Marketing) solutions.
  • Manage the cooperative fund on behalf of corporate, with our Managed Marketing (Corporate Managed Marketing) solutions.
  • Help franchisee onboarding by generating a Digital Manifesto, outlining what digital marketing efforts are in play and how they benefit the franchisee.
  • Generate marketing playbooks/guidebooks to assist your franchisees in their local sales and marketing efforts.

Turnkey Managed Marketing Solutions

Customized for the franchisor and turnkey for the franchisee. We develop proven strategies and performance tools to work within your environment including branded reports that your franchisees can access on your Intranet. Consistency of the brand is the reason why franchise organizations work. From high-level strategy to local listings management, we develop and manage branding and marketing plans across franchise networks in order to:

  • Provide a consistent brand experience.
  • Protect brands from dilution.
  • Ensure consistent messaging across online/offline channels.
  • Drive lead generation to specific franchised and company-owned locations.
  • Establish a dashboard to effectively communicate results.
  • Manage the brand online and offline.
  • Launch new locations effectively.
  • Maximize performance of established locations.
  • Turnkey Managed Marketing solutions for your cooperative fund.

A Scalable Framework

Franchise marketing solutions must be built on a scalable framework. For example, building a performance media account for a single business is different than one that has 200+ locations. Solutions must be effective at both the macro and micro levels, which is why we develop company-wide and franchise-specific reporting, strategies and tactics. Our reporting captures insights from hundreds of locations, which we use to optimize our strategies.
