Automate Your Brand's Operating System

When someone buys a franchise, a significant part of what they are buying is your franchise's process. This covers everything from how to get leads, how to sell to them, what you sell and how you track the results. They are essentially buying an "operating system" for a business. Your operating system can be as simple as an operations manual that describes how to do all of these things or a mix of process and technology. The more you implement and automate with technology, the easier it will be to implement as well as monitor and track the results of the franchisee.

Building an Automated Marketing Pipeline

Does everyone that calls you book a job? Probably not - they probably reconsider on their own, realize the err in their ways and call you back later, right? Yeah, probably not. You need to be proactive in reaching out to these leads and convert as many of them as you can or you are leaving money on the table.

Every lead that contacts you costs you something. If you have a process to convert more of them into customers, your revenue per lead will go up, which puts more money directly into your pocket. So it makes sense to continue the conversation with prospects.
