Compared to traditional startups, founders who step into self-employment and want to become part of an already established franchise system, enjoy decisive advantages. Among other things, this includes the adaptation of pre-designed marketing measures that are already being used at other franchise locations. The franchise agreement also provides some options for managing your company's marketing despite these "sample plans". Engel & Völkers shows you which methods have proven to be successful for franchisees.
By signing the license agreement, you gain access to relevant franchisor strategic instruments, such as corporate identity, marketing or corporate communications. A deviation from these instruments is usually not provided. It is precisely this clear policy that is your benefit as a franchisee, as it is the foundation of the success of any functioning franchise. However, in terms of the content of the individual measures, you are occasionally given free rein. You can write your own marketing content on your website (as part of the franchise's own wordings), set up social media campaigns, or customize your salerooms according to CI guidelines. Appear and participate at local festivals or fairs to gain regional visibility beyond the benefits of CI, or plan special promotions such as sweepstakes and giveaway. You will find that your scope within the franchise agreement is significantly greater than initially assumed.
