As more and more entrepreneurs open franchises in the U.S, the competition is becoming fiercer. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to make your franchise stand out and succeed in this crowded market, starting with effective digital marketing strategies.

As Google searches, social media and online reviews become the primary channels where people discover new and small businesses, it is invaluable for a franchise to leverage certain tools such as easily searchable keywords and exposure on other reputable and high-traffic websites.
