The Six Pillars of Franchise Marketing

Franchise marketing is different from the marketing of single-location businesses. There are six pillars of franchise marketing, and they are all equally important.

Advertising and direct mail are two examples of traditional offline methods that franchisees can use effectively to gain market dominance and positive ROI. Sales promotions, public relations, the internet & technology (which upgrades the former “five pillars of marketing” to six) also play an essential role in franchise marketing strategies by creating brand awareness among prospective customers.

When the mass exodus from traditional marketing happened years ago, everyone thought the old ways were dead. However, the loss of personal touch proved that the old ways still worked for franchisors and franchisees alike, causing a backlash in the industry. The real solution lies in a comprehensive approach to combining offline and online media.

The Internet is a new media, but time-tested, “old school” marketing principles apply. The franchise business model brings the added challenge of having multiple target markets. The Franchisor needs to create an entirely different set of campaigns and strategies to attract new franchisees and help build the brand for the franchisees. In contrast, the franchisee needs to attract new end-user customers in local markets. This requires a very sophisticated system and fantastic organizational and leadership skills.

Successfully marketing your franchise is not a “one size fits all” proposition. Our bespoke done-for-you or done-with-you marketing execution and support services are designed to help you master the critical elements of multi-location marketing and get the most out of your investment in advertising.

We have a proven track record of success in marketing for franchisors and their franchisees.

Franchise marketing is a unique and exciting challenge. A franchisor must market its brand to both franchisees and consumers but in different ways. Franchisors want to attract potential franchisees and need to make sure that current franchisees are getting the help they need. The Stoddard Agency, via a close relationship with top-level professionals in our network, has experience working with multi-location brands and knows how important it is for each location of your business to be successful on its own merits.

By combining the best of the traditional marketing methods and the modern high-tech marketing channels, we produce comprehensive business and marketing plans. These include the new six pillars of franchise marketing: advertising, direct mail, sales, promotions, public relations, and the Internet & Technology.
