Joining a franchise business has many benefits when it comes to marketing. A local business can benefit from a huge marketing campaign which would be otherwise unobtainable without the support of a business franchise.
Potential franchisees that are looking at franchises for sale need to be aware of how each franchisor’s marketing works. It may be that the franchise fee includes marketing activity or there is a marketing levy to cover national franchise marketing.
National marketing activity may include TV, radio, press advertising or sponsorship at a national level. This can be beneficial when looking to buy a franchise as national awareness of your brand will benefit the franchisee on a local scale. This also applies to regional marketing, which is a key consideration when looking at franchise opportunities.
Franchise businesses are also likely to invest heavily in digital marketing to increase the presence of the brand. This can benefit franchisees immensely by driving brand awareness online, helping consumers to locating individual franchises, providing an online platform for franchise retail as well encompassing brand promotion via email campaigns, social media and pay per click advertising.
Franchisees also benefit from a wider marketing strategy, including professionally designed leaflets, posters and marketing materials. The franchisor will also invest in store POS that will run throughout the chain to provide brand consistency across the business.
Franchise marketing raises brand awareness and enables the brand to provide a consistent image that consumers can identify with on a national basis and increases brand awareness. This in turn drives footfall to stores and increases profits at franchisee level.
