Robust web presence builds continuous stream of leads
That’s because Chem-Dry supports franchise owners with a solid national web presence, as well as online and traditional media advertising. It’s part of a comprehensive, always-evolving strategy to build name recognition, and get leads into the hands of franchise owners who can then book appointments — and business.
The national website is currently seeing 3% more visits than in 2020, which was a busy year. And it’s also converting traffic into leads at a rate of 76%. “Tweaks and upgrades are constant, so franchise owners can always rely on the national presence as part of their overall marketing strategy,” says Doug Smith, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development.
National and local marketing pair well to build brand visibility
“Every Chem-Dry carpet cleaning franchise owner can have their own website, where they can promote specials, talk about all the services they provide, and generate their own leads,” Smith says. “Those owners can, and do, also build very strong email campaigns to current customers, so they can book repeat business. This allows them to have a very visible local presence.”
“The national site,” he adds, “is another layer on top of that. The same messaging is being used, and the national site also promotes sales and specials. When people ask for more details, their contact information is funneled down to that local franchise owner. From there, it’s just a matter of booking an appointment to provide an estimate and landing that customer.”
