The 3 Steps to Strong Franchise Growth

Here’s the general outline of how to develop a franchise brand. Keep in mind that each industry and brand is different, so each step needs to be customized to your business’ specific needs.

  1. Develop brand equity

    This is where an agency with branding chops comes in handy. Your branding and look-and-feel can make a brand stand out amongst other franchises. This includes both your in-store and online brand presence. Ensure that you are using the latest and greatest consistently across all your ad placements and store locations.

  2. Grow paid and unpaid leads

    With the fundamentals in place, we can expand our outreach. Organic search optimization is a great way to capture the interest of potential franchise owners and direct them back to your website. And combine this traffic with efficient ad campaigns that target your audience on their favorite sites. Finally, develop your brand presence on social media and in industry networks to become a valuable resource to your audience.

  3. Improve qualified conversion rate

    Once the flow of leads is improving, we whittle down your audience to the leads that are most likely to convert. By analyzing ad and social campaign success, we can reach your audience at a lower cost per click. Use data to identify which efforts are most effective and focus on those efforts moving forward.

At Buhv, we focus on measurable ROI to ensure each of these steps is performing as well as possible.
