Direct Response Marketing For Emerging Franchisors
THE PROBLEM: As an emerging franchisor you have structural hurdles that you must overcome. These hurdles include a limited budget, larger competitors and a trust issue in finding a franchise development team that is committed to putting your system on the right track and obtaining real results and not just sell you services.
THE ANSWER: The answer is one that is far too often overlooked the vast majority of so-called marketing, SEO and franchise development "experts". The answer is "direct response marketing, understanding the principals of direct response marketing and to deploy these principals in your franchisee attraction and conversion process. The "answer" that direct response marketing offers involves a process that involves:
- Understanding and defining your USP (unique selling proposition);
- Magnetizing your marketing through your USP and a call to action that is focused on establishing a dialogue and conversation with your franchisee prospects;
- Building and managing a franchisee attraction and marketing funnel;
- Managing your franchisee attraction and marketing funnel through a CRM system that is automated to monitor and manage short-term and long-term franchisee conversion "drip campaigns".
Every year emerging franchisors waste thousands of dollars on consultants, websites, SEO experts, social media and other marketing channels without giving themselves a chance for real success.
