Flashmag for a franchise structure

Flashmag is an innovative way to display product and service offerings at the Franchisee level that reflects a first class visual online presentation at a fraction of the cost of other mediums. Flashmag empowers a franchisee to communicate with their existing and potential customers email lists instantly and also to track number of openings. They do not need to supply their email contact lists to anyone.

The Internet is the fastest growing communications medium in history. Its take up is so fast and the adoption of email is so prolific that just about everyone has an email address.

In today’s market it is a fairly standard approach for a franchisee to obtain email lists. Once these email lists are obtained they form part of the franchisees direct marketing program. In most cases a franchisee will jealously guard their email lists.

Current approaches have led to unprofessional attempts at direct email offers, poor newsletters that aren’t of much interest and a need for franchisees to up their efforts in email marketing. To employ web development specialists to prepare a professional online presentation is expensive to any one franchisee. Flashmag is offering a system which will provide the latest in technology for a highly professional presentation at a fraction of the cost of a normal advertising campaign because the product can be created directly by the franchisee.

The franchisee can use one or more Flashmag template shells and the franchisee or any nominated employee can log into the online administration centre and insert their own text or pictures to comply with the franchisors specifications. In the middle page of their Flashmag there will be one paid advertisement and one on the back cover. You can purchase this space if you have a particular product to promote or allow us to sell this space to a non-competing advertiser.

As soon as the franchisee has finished his preparation of his Flashmag he then sends himself an email from the system containing a hyperlink to Flashmag and he can then forward that onto his email list. Alternately we do have an email out tool that can be offered as an optional extra. Either way, in seconds the Flashmag is live to that email list. They can also track how many times it has been opened. As Flashmag is live any changes made to the Flashmag will be instantly viewable to anyone who clicks on it again.

The template setup and calls to action etc can be many and varied to suit your specific needs. You can commission us to prepare varying templates for different promotions etc to assist the creativity for the franchisee. There are so many possibilities for this amazing product. We will need to discuss these possibilities with you.

The greatest benefit of this system is it is not a flash movie production; it is a live database feed. So it is instantly changeable and delivered as a live feed. It is a living promotion with a call to action!

We would need to meet with you and discuss the pricing for this product and we would be looking for a 12-month commitment to run with this. As a guide to our pricing, we would indicate to you that a 12-month contract to use Flashmag would be less costly to you than ONE printed brochure campaign in terms of design, production, printing and distribution. If you elect not to take up the two advertising spots in the living Flashmag then the cost will be a tenth of one brochure campaign.

Flashmag is an excellent product to provide to franchisees as part of their franchise offer. It demonstrates the power of the combined franchise rather than an individual going it alone.
