Letter From The Founder
I created Franchise In-Sites in response to what I have seen as a thorn in the side of many franchise systems…the ability, or lack thereof, to efficiently and effectively market their franchise concepts online. Many companies don’t have the budget for the trial and error involved to find good online sources. Still more companies don’t put the correct work toward their effort in regard to campaign management, content evolution, and analytics, in order to get the most out of what they pay for. They simply throw up an ad and wait for the results that they feel they deserve or they pay an advertising agency to do the exact same thing. Compounding these problems is the fact that the advertising industry is a dynamic and the tactics that worked best in the past may not work as well today.
Franchise In-Sites was created for what I would deem “smart” franchise systems. By that I mean for companies who have a solid foundation, the right systems and staff in place, enough budget to realistically achieve their goals, and an understanding of the importance of regular tracking and reporting. We’re here to guide those companies through the maze of advertising their franchise online with customized campaigns that place their concept on the right sites, in the right packages, and at the right prices. Of equal importance, we’re here to analyze the results of the campaign and work with the client to hone their content and processes until it produces the best results possible.
