At a recent meeting for aspiring entrepreneurs, Rick gave a lecture about franchises and marketing. Rick said, "One of the several advantages of joining a franchise is the marketing that is made possible when you're part of a large organization. The franchisor is a key resource that works to your advantage because he can negotiate national pricing agreements and pass the savings on to the local franchisees."
Rick told the group what questions to ask when considering purchasing a franchise. "Ask how much marketing the franchisor will execute in your area and how the marketing dollars are allocated and the type of marketing that is done for your area. Understand who is responsible for different components of marketing and how much of the cost is included in the mandatory marketing contribution. Most importantly, find out the opinions of other franchisees; are they happy with the marketing and does it appear to be effective?"
