The Importance of Digital Marketing to a Franchise
December 23, 2019
Finding the right franchise, finding the financing for your franchise, and learning how to step into the role of "boss" are some of the challenges you must meet when you buy a franchise. There are other challenges as well. What about the marketing side of the business? Marketing your franchise is an important part of the business.
Many franchises run nationwide ads that can be beneficial to your local franchise, but you'll also need to run local campaigns to help target the potential customer base in your area. This is essential for success in today's digital market, but what does "digital marketing" mean and how do you know where to start?
According to RetailDive, the vast majority (87%) of shoppers begin product searches on digital channels.
Clearly, an online presence is crucial in today's digital world. For a business to compete, it needs to have an online presence, but having a website is only the beginning. A website that isn't built properly, that lacks interesting and relevant content, or that doesn't meet the requirements set forth by Google is really no website at all. It will be overlooked by Google and rendered useless. That's why it's so important to have all the necessary digital marketing tools and technologies available that you'll need to maximize your presence online.
Digital marketing starts with a company website, but it must be SEO optimized. It should also incorporate responsive technology so it looks good on any device, not just a desktop or laptop computer. SEO (search engine optimization) is super important to the success of your website. It's what keeps your website from getting lost in Google and other search engines. There's also SEM (search engine marketing), which is entirely different but just as important as SEO. SEM includes PPC and other paid tactics designed to gain ranking in Google. Other components of effective digital marketing include email marketing, social media marketing, Google and Bing local maps, share buttons, chat, write a review technology, tracking technology, effective CRM and relevant SEO optimized content, such as blogs, etc.
As a franchise owner, you will need to understand how all of this works, contract a marketing agency that does, or the franchisor needs to already have a relationship with a reputable digital marketing company that provides cost effective solutions to provide all of this for you.
