PINNACLE OF YOUR
TALK TO US
There is a lot of great news for franchise brands and owners as we move toward the end of this calendar year. According to the International Franchise Association, franchise businesses are expected to increase by 15,000 units, adding approximately 254,000 new jobs to the nation’s workforce—outpacing pre-pandemic levels. So, the opportunities are out there, but how do you attract the right candidates? Experts at Pinnacle Franchise Development are here to help.
Try these five tips to grow your franchise.
Your marketing strategy is a “road map” for attracting prospective sales leads and converting them into franchisees. It should include the four P’s:
Having a clearly-defined brand identity and philosophy is critical before you search for franchisees. You can’t expect investors to “buy in” if they don’t understand who you are.
Current franchise owners are an excellent way to connect with new business owners. After all, a thriving franchise is your best advertisement. According to the Franchise Motivation Report, 94 percent of participants spoke with franchisees when considering opening a business.
Try implementing a referral program that encourages franchisees to find new leads and promote the benefits of franchise ownership in their immediate community as well as social and professional networks.
A confusing or lackluster sales presentation will discourage potential leads. Instead, keep your pitch simple, informative, and tailored to your audience. Be sure to answer all the questions investors have at this stage to keep the process moving. Your sale may lose momentum if you overwhelm them with data and buzzwords.
Social media is ideal for promoting franchise opportunities. It requires minimal investment, and it yields big returns when it works. Keep in mind; users like to interact with brands. So when you post, be sure to respond to comments and answer questions in a timely manner. Hire a social media marketing team to manage your online presence if you don’t have time.
