Small businesses operate in a variety of industries and under an assortment of business models. Franchising just happens to be a very popular business model that has been embraced worldwide. The difference, outside franchising, is the small business owner’s sole responsibility and efforts to market the business to consumers (B2C) or to other businesses (B2B).
In a franchise environment, franchisees are often involved in the brand’s local cooperatives where economy of scale prevails, making marketing much more cost-effective than for one location. Further, as many franchise organizations have internal marketing departments, or the luxury of a marketing agency, a great deal of professional experience is available to assist franchisees in developing effective marketing strategies and exploring new tools and technology that enhance otherwise mundane marketing efforts. Outside the franchise arena, small business owners must fend for themselves when developing strategies that must be innovative, just to compete. Often, trial and error becomes the norm, rather than the exception.
