ServiceMaster Clean Testimonial For U.S. Image Design
|Tirrell has got us into the internet market from the ground up. All we had to do was tell him what we wanted to happen. He explained to us what we needed to do and after we had all of our information together, he made it happen. Great customer service anytime we needed a change or update he was right there when we needed him. firstname.lastname@example.org, send me an email for a reference, anytime. We have tired yellow pages, online directories, and newspaper. At first these methods of marketing worked but in 2009 our leads took a dive. U.S. Image Design approached me in Aug. 2009 along with 4 other web design and internet marketing companies. We received 5 quotes and by the end of 2 weeks we decided to use U.S. Image Design. It was one of the best decision we have for our company. I highly recommend U.S. Image Design to any Franchise or company looking to get STRONG LOCAL MARKETING. ServiceMaster Atlanta
Marketing a franchise online can be very time consuming and quite complex. With all the many techniques and solutions out there… how do you select the right one? First of all you need to find the methods that work for your industry or franchise. What works for a small company may not work for your company, and what works for one franchise won’t work for another. To succeed with your online campaign, you need to know what products are available and how they work for your industry. Below are some great marketing tips that can increase traffic to your business. Your job is to find which one or combination of these solutions will work for your web site.
There are three things to consider when marketing or advertising your new or existing franchise.
1. Marketing in Your Location
One of the big no no’s with owning a franchise is marketing in another franchisors territory. If you market in another franchise territory, it’s like going into someone’s house and stealing their TV and selling it to a pawnshop. In this case you won’t go to jail but the organization you purchase the franchise from many fine you and if this continues, they take away your franchise. That is why it’s highly important to work with a company that provides pinpoint marketing and knows the rules of your franchise organization.
2. Co-op Dollars for your Franchise
Co-op is when a franchise organization develops a national marketing budget that is divided amongst the franchise owners. In many cases an experienced marketing company is able to work out the details of a franchises co-op program. This allows the franchise owner to spend little or no many out of pocket to generate to new business.
3. Get involved in your Community
Getting involved with your community is very important. Many franchises fell because the community never embraces them. When hiring a marketing company you need to know that they have the ability to get you exposure in your community. One of the best ways of doing this is through social media (twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc…). Your social media program need to be customized to fit your industry and demographic.

Greg Jarboe Webpronews.com The Death (Or Redefinition) Of SEO Discussed
In the past it was very easy to optimize a website. All you had to do is create a strong title, write up a keyword rich description and throw in a few industry specific keywords to get your site to rank on the first page of Google, Yahoo, MSN (now Bing), etc. There is a major flaw with this method today. EVERYONE IS DOING IT!
Don’t be mistaken, in some markets this method of SEO is still highly effective. Places like Virginia, Kentucky, and South Carolina (just to name a few) still has a lot of opportunity for growth. Trying to rank in places like California, Atlanta Georgia, Dallas Texas and New York for industries such as roofing, water damage, carpet cleaning, plumbing, etc… is nearly impossible using basic SEO strategies. This is where more advanced forms of lead generation are needed.
What other ways can a small business, franchise or new company get presence on the web without using SEO?
The number one thing to remember about marketing on the web is, YOU MUST THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX! One method of marketing will not be enough to successfully promote your company. You need to be in a mind set of lead generation. Here are some great tools that will give your company a leg up over the competition.
- Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn – is taking lead generation to the next level. (Social Media)
- YouTube and Photo Bucket ( Video and Image sites)
- EzineArticles, Buzzle, GoArticles, etc… (Gives people from all over the world a way to promote products and services through article writing)
- Social Bookmarking Digg, Stumble Upon, reddit (A great way to share your videos, images and articles with thousands of searching consumers)
- Blogging – WordPress and Blogger.com (Gives you the ability to write fresh new content that creates links, drive traffic and give you a boost in the search engines)
All of the methods above have two things in common, fresh content and link building. Though Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is not completely dead, in this day in time it would be a tremendous mistake to rely on this method alone. If the tools above are used correctly, when SEO does die out your company will be sitting pretty.
Note: The methods above are very time consuming and in some cases tedious. Don’t feel like you have to do it on your own. There are some very capable internet marketing companies that will be glad to give you a hand at creating leads for your company.
