Previously we discussed the essential tools for marketing your franchise. Now that you are aware of the tools you need to market your franchise, are you ready or do you have the expertise to implement them yourself??? Probably not…this is where managed marketing services come into play and why you should consider investing in it.
First, what is managed marketing service of MMS? Managed Marketing Services (MMS) provides a company with everything needed to create, implement, execute, and maintain a successful marketing plan. In addition, with MMS businesses are typically given access to a marketing team to implement this plan.
In a recent report, The Gartner Marketing Organizational Design and Strategy Survey, Gartner exposed, “…a lack of internal team coordination, a skills gap and other shortcomings prevented marketing leaders from delivering business outcomes that match expectations.”
After all, most businesses or franchisees don’t have the expertise in-house to deliver on the latest and greatest in digital marketing. MMS is ideal to grow and scale your franchise.
Benefits of Managed Marketing Services
Saves You Time
If time were an unlimited commodity, then you might be more inclined to keep your marketing strategy in-house. However, time is a finite resource, and it is never more precious than in businesses.
With MMS you are freeing up time that you can spend working on the core of your franchise. As an entrepreneur, it’s imperative that you focus your efforts leading your business, not running day-to-day functions. For your team as well, it makes sense for them to focus on their core roles, not get distracted by tweeting or blogging.
Even if you are currently thinking of employing an in-house marketing executive, it’s likely that outsourcing would still save you time. Having to manage and train an employee is likely to take more time than coordinating marketing efforts through an outsourcing arrangement.
Saving time isn’t just good for business – it’s good for you. Make sure you invest in yourself and your work-life balance. Keeping healthy will ultimately give you more energy to work on your business and its future potential.
