We Drive Results

I was up until 3:30 responding to inquiries from the NBC piece. I got through about half of my 50+ inquiries and should start booking appointments in the next day or so. So far, there have been 91 goal completions, the equivalent of a month+ of leads in one day. The CEO is thrilled. I reminded him, ‘That’s why I suggest you retain 919. Nobody does this as well as they do.'”

Brand Experience

Why We’re Different From Other Franchise Marketing Agencies

1. Integrated Services

We offer a full roster of franchise marketing services under one roof marketing strategy, digital and social media marketing, PR, media buying, direct marketing, web development and full creative services. You reap the cost and time benefits of not having to hire and manage multiple agencies.

2. Access to Senior Staff

At other franchise marketing agencies, unproven and inexperienced junior staff are running your account on a day-to-day basis, with a thin senior staff jumping in when problems arise. Not here. We put our deep senior staff on the front line, so our clients benefit from the most experience possible.

3. Results-Driven Marketing Programs

We insist on setting clear marketing program goals that dovetail and directly impact the numbers you are paying for top line revenue, market share, brand impressions and preference, franchise unit growth, etc. If the expectations aren’t set up front, it’s hard to evaluate our mutual success.

4. The Most Strategic Franchise Marketing Agency in
the Business

Yep, that’s a bold statement. But we can back it up. Our CEO developed our trademarked LINK® marketing planning process, which has been used to accelerate the growth of well over 100 companies. We also introduced the franchise industry’s first content analytics platform, called 919 Insights that uses predictive marketing analytics to make more informed decisions about our clients’ marketing efforts.

5. A Reputation Built on Industry Knowledge, Not Connections

WE LOVE FRANCHISING! We are active, long-term IFA members, but we are not one of the “inner circle” franchise marketing and PR firms – and never will be. We have a distinctive and disruptive franchise marketing approach that sets us apart and has led us to a reputation and client roster built on WHAT we know, not WHO we know.

How We Do It

We create a customized franchise marketing system for your brand, using proven processes and methodologies that powered hundreds of franchise marketing campaigns for 919 franchise clients over the past decade with proven, documented results.

Every client relationship starts with the development of a clear and measurable franchise marketing plan with clear sales and marketing goals and expectations before work begins. Our trademarked LINK® franchise marketing planning process ensures that everything we do is based on unbiased third-party market intelligence.

Our trademarked strategic planning process has generated documented results for over 100 franchise brands, and it can work for you too.​

What Makes Us Different

We know when it comes to franchise marketing, it’s always about making the numbers work for our clients — and we aren’t afraid to set the bar high.

We work in the trenches with franchise marketing departments and franchise development teams to develop and implement franchise marketing strategies based on sound market intelligence, shared expectations, and clear measurable program goals.

We offer our clients the franchise industry’s first and only AI-powered data analytics platform, called 919 Insights, that identifies exactly what topics your customers and candidates are searching for online and on social media, as they evaluate franchise brands and options.

However, we aren’t the right franchise marketing agency for every brand. As a matter of fact, there are only three kinds of franchise brands we work with.

What are the three types of franchise brands that are perfect candidates to work with us?
