bfa top tips for being seen on the virtual high street
Paint a picture of the franchisee experience
Providing a deep understanding of being a franchisee with you is crucial when engaging with prospects. It’s highly likely that the prospect will engage if they can put themselves in the shoes of your franchisees and see the benefits. Paint that picture for them to pique interest and use your network to authentically promote the benefits.
Your brand should be front & centre
With so much competition for franchise investment, it is vital to stand out from the crowd. Your logo must be present, and it must be unique. Stay within your brand colour pallet and try to use eye-catching imagery that brings your brand to life. This attracts attention and will help people to engage with your proposition.
Build a story telling momentum
When people search for an investment opportunity it is more likely they will be attracted to the ones that are clearly moving forward! Whether it is due to innovation, investment, network achievements, industry awards or growth… Ensure you take the time to share what is happening in your business, and why that makes you the obvious choice.
Care about where you are – location is everything!
Yes, a sale is a sale, but do not sell yourself out by promoting your offer in the wrong place. It could devalue your reputation!
