Advertise your franchise the right way!

Handling all your advertisement and marketing for your business can be a daunting procedure, but with the proper techniques and tips it can be a breeze. Here you will learn how to invest your precious dollars where they will bring the most results.

Get To Know Your Audience

Before you put your money and/or resources into any kind of advertising or marketing you need to know who your customers are. What age demographic do they fit in, activities, and what advertisement style they react to the most.

Learning how your customers interact with brands and how they look for ways to save money will help you figure out what advertising opportunities will work best for your franchise.

Search All Your Advertising Options

At a local level, there are several advertising options such as:

Local publication & Newspapers

Social Media

Television

Websites/ Website Ads

Sponsorship of Community Activities & Events

Create a list of all the available local advertising opportunities you can find. Next see what the costs will be. What will the cost be to run your available campaign of choice?

 Create Your Budget

After you have determined the cost of your advertising, you can now see what you are able to afford in terms of marketing. In the beginning, you won’t be able to spend a large amount on marketing, but you can budget for a smaller ad on a website per say, or a newspaper ad.

Your first rounds of advertising will be about experimentation to see what results you achieve. So it’s smart to aim for a smaller budget on advertising at first and then spending more on it after you see the results.

If you advertise with one method at a time, it’s much easier to keep track of exactly what source all your results are coming from.

Track Your Offers

If you do want to advertise with more than one source at a time, make sure that you offer different promotions with those sources to keep track of where the traffic is directly coming from. Or you can use an online advertising option that tracks leads with technology.

 Tweak Your Techniques

Certain advertising sources will generate different results, some may be lower than others and not produce as much profit. After about three months is when you can asses what is working the best for your franchise. In  the case of the lower results source, you should drop those advertising sources and focus on the ones that are generating results.
