    1. 1. LCM Wave 16 Spotlight: Franchisees of National Companies April 2013
    2. 2. 2BIA/Kelsey Local Commerce Monitor™ (LCM), Wave 16, Q3 2012 Proprietary and Confidential. Copyright © 2013 BIA/Kelsey. All Rights Reserved. LCM:Franchisees Executive Overview  Franchisees have aggressive plans for media spending, including for digital/online media over the next 12 months.  They’re sophisticated media users. They see the highest ROI from mobile, social and video advertising.  Franchisees spend about 2.5 times as much on average for their online presence as SMBs in the full LCM sample. They have a diversified and robust online footprint.  About two-thirds of franchisees have a presence on Facebook. They value customer reviews and opinions more than other SMBs. They typically monitor this activity through digital product bundles rather than stand-alone solutions.  Franchisees are heavily engaged with their customers, with 87% reporting they frequently track sources of leads and 75% using some sort of CRM system. They give the highest quality ratings to in-person and website-form leads. More than 70% offer a customer loyalty program.  Franchisees use agencies/digital agencies at almost twice the level as the full LCM sample (37% vs. 20%), underscoring the importance of channel sell-through efforts.
    3. 3. 3BIA/Kelsey Local Commerce Monitor™ (LCM), Wave 16, Q3 2012 Proprietary and Confidential. Copyright © 2013 BIA/Kelsey. All Rights Reserved. LCM:Franchisees Selling to Franchisees  They Like Personal Contact and Education Franchisees like face-to-face contact with their sales representatives – 45% rate an in- person visit as “extremely important”. In a self-service environment, they value tutorials, performance guarantees and discounts (on media purchases).  They Are Media Savvy Franchisees are strong in digital advertising, while continuing to use traditional media. They see mobile and social media as providing high ROIs. They know what works – nearly all track lead sources and three-quarters use some type of CRM.  They Already Have a Strong Digital Presence Given their robust online footprint and high level of spending for online presence, franchisees are good customers for a variety of online services. Given their general inclination towards data and analysis, there are opportunities to include tracking, analytics and online management services in the mix.  They Want Help in Engaging Customers Franchisees are trying to engage their customers in many ways (using social and mobile media, tracking customer comments, offering loyalty programs, etc.). Franchisees are likely to be receptive to solutions that improve customer engagement, possibly by connecting various programs and platforms.
    4. 4. 4BIA/Kelsey Local Commerce Monitor™ (LCM), Wave 16, Q3 2012 Proprietary and Confidential. Copyright © 2013 BIA/Kelsey. All Rights Reserved. LCM:Franchisees Franchisees Spend More on Media in General and on Digital/Online  Franchisees are more aggressive advertisers than average SMBs, with Net Increasers on media spending at 51.6%. Given these intentions, they’re good candidates to increase their media spend and make multi-product buys.  Their ad spend is higher than for average SMBs. And they appear to understand the value of advertising – with the great majority tracking lead sources and using some type of CRM system.  Franchisees’ faster than average adoption of digital products makes them good prospects for a wide array of digital/online media.  A larger percentage of their ad budget (32% vs. 25% for the full LCM sample) goes to digital/online media. Their use of mobile and social media is particularly high.  Franchisees also use significant amounts of traditional media. About one-third use radio, magazines, TV, outdoor and direct mail. Nearly one-half use newspapers.  Nearly a third of those that currently use print Yellow Pages (31%) expect to “significantly” increase their spending next year.
