Franchise and Multi-Location Digital Marketing Can Be Puzzling.

Let Us Help Put The Pieces Together.

Franchise Digital Marketing puzzle

V Digital Services understands that creating a successful digital marketing campaign is like piecing together a complicated puzzle. Until all the individual pieces are connected correctly, the puzzle is incomplete.

It’s even more challenging to connect the pieces correctly to leverage a national brand in the local market space.

With our industry experience, V Digital Services can develop, implement and execute holistic digital campaigns to give your brand a stronger online presence, reduce costs and produce consolidated, easy-to-manage data.

V Digital Services is part of Voice Media Group, a multi-national media company that’s been in business for more than 50 years. We’ve been the local asset your franchise owners have relied on for print advertising for decades and no one knows our local markets better.

We also fully understand the big components of the franchise puzzle and how to fit them together to maximize your digital marketing spend:

  • Franchise systems are unique, operating either from a centralized or de-centralized position.
  • The majority of franchise brands are investing more in digital marketing each year, but most still haven’t figured out how to properly budget for digital or leverage their digital buy to get maximum results.
  • We know that both the ‘Zors and ‘Zees are quick to adopt digital marketing strategies, but at varying levels of sophistication.
  • ROI and ROAS are bigger acronyms than SEO and PPC.

V Digital Services can successfully put together the digital marketing puzzle for your franchise brand to maximize your ROI. We will leverage our Google Premier Partner status and longstanding industry relationships to reduce the number of vendors you use and simplify the data you need to collect.

Yes, we are an approved supplier and supporter of the IFA. Our team features digital franchise marketing experts who have routinely presented at and hosted round table events for IFA events and shows.
We’re the best digital agency you’ve never heard of… yet. To date, we’ve worked with over 100 different businesses with multi-location digital marketing needs. Not all want it to be known who is handling their business so we respect their right to keep that quiet. We’ve partnered with some of the largest legacy brands in American history, including all major beverage brands, several food/QSR chains and other legacy operations.
Our dashboard and technology make roll-up reporting a breeze. If you need reporting by region, state or at a national level, we can quickly deliver that data to your fingertips.
We easily can. We generally prefer to develop holistic digital marketing campaigns for your brand and owners. However, we realize that prior relationships might exist and you might need us to help on a project, pilot or singular solution basis. We can easily bundle services like local SEO, organic SEO, SEM, Facebook/Instagram management as well as paid ads, programmatic display, email marketing, video production and a whole lot more! We can work with your brand and franchise council to mathematically demonstrate appropriate budgets and handle multiple billings.
As long as the locations aren’t right across the street from each other (yes, we know Starbucks is notorious for this), we’re able to provide SEO and PPC that doesn’t compete with another franchise or cause them to take a hit. It’s a delicate balance that needs to be maintained, but we are experts at doing so.

We regularly work with brands who have found themselves at a digital crossroads. We’ll audit all of your locations and their geographic markets, and then produce custom campaigns that will address all of their needs.

I’m sure you have more questions, so reach out to us via email at [email protected] or give us a call on our Franchise Hotline at 480-236-6394.

Case Study:

Miller’s Ale House


Facebook & Instagram Ads

Programmatic Email

Pitcher Sales

Miller’s Ale House came to V Digital Services to run a promotion for NCAA March Madness across their 78 locations. Miller’s Ale House primary goal was to focus on promoting their March Madness Menu and wanting to deploy multiple digital strategies, including social ads, to drive sales.

We deployed multiple digital solutions to drive one result: more in-restaurant traffic. We leveraged multiple Facebook ad campaigns (targeted as well as remarketing); programmatic email acquisition leveraging multiple data points, interests, and likes; display ads that focused on specific behavior sets we wanted to target.

By frequently updating our ads to tailor for the tournament, it allowed us to continuously increase our relevancy and decrease our cost per click. This resulted in us being able to increase our daily clicks to over 3,000 by the end of the campaign.  Further, the social campaign saw a click-cost of 48 cents to drive traffic to the web site. We generated over 7,000 social media interactions in 25 days for Miller’s Ale House.
