3rd Tip for Success – Develop a Strong Marketing Plan
It’s tempting to rely on your franchise’s name and reputation to have a successful business, but it can take a lot more than that to get your location established. Perhaps you’re a franchisee owner of a lesser-known company, or you’re the first to bring your franchise to your area. Even if your franchise company is well known, you still need to be prepared to market and advertise in order to build a client base and get yourself off the ground.
First, make sure you understand and implement any and all marketing plans and campaigns that your corporate headquarters has in place for you. They likely have a solid base of marketing planned out that you can then build from and will probably have a marketing company available to help guide you.
Then, figure out the customized additional marketing strategies that you want to invest in. This could be flyers around town, advertisements in local papers or magazines, participating in community events or partnering with other businesses in your area. Be creative!
