Franchise marketing is failing; most approaches don’t scale past 20 locations. In our latest discussion, Dakota Zirk from Vendasta cuts through the noise, revealing hard truths about structured processes that actually work. Here’s a no-nonsense breakdown of what franchisors are missing and how to fix it.
Structured Processes: The Key to Franchise Success
Dakota emphasized the importance of structured processes for franchises. With growth, repetition of successful strategies is essential. However, many franchisors struggle with inconsistent implementation across different locations. The lack of a unified system leads to divergent practices and inefficiencies. Dakota’s approach is to ensure that all teams operate from a single source of truth, particularly regarding data that informs marketing strategies.
Overcoming Franchise Marketing Challenges
One major hurdle for franchisors is keeping up with each franchisee’s marketing efforts. From community outreach to online reviews, every aspect counts. Dakota points out that most franchisees aren’t inherently marketers, yet successful marketing is crucial for their success.
