4 Tips For Stronger Franchise Email Marketing Software Campaigns

  • Save time and money with templates. Templates are great for upping brand consistency and also saving time that would otherwise be spent agonizing over how to start and end every email. You may have 10+ locations, all with different marketing strategies, but each email should use the same “on-brand” foundation. By doing so, you can redirect that time saved into crafting the content that readers actually care about–the “body” of your email.
  • Set up an efficient content approval process. Giving each franchisee the freedom to create their own email content using your templates allows you to focus your attention elsewhere (sometimes delegation is as good as automation), and it can also increase morale by boosting the franchisee’s sense of autonomy. But you need to be sure all marketing materials align with your brand’s tone and systems. Setting up an approval process that sends review notifications to a central dashboard is a great start. Working from the same shared documents using cloud technology makes editing, suggesting, and collaborating much faster.
  • Build a strong email list. Even the most sophisticated franchise email marketing software fails when there’s no readership. There are plenty of ways to grow your email list, from setting up franchise competitions to see who can collect the most email addresses, to adding email sign-up to your online checkout process to receive product discounts.
  • Personalize your emails. Templates are great for saving time, but they’ll backfire if your copy seems irrelevant, robotic, or mistargeted. Spending a few seconds personalizing the opening lines–or better yet, creating a list of reliable openers you can tweak depending on the individual–is a great way to up reader engagement without much effort.
