How can I improve my listing?


For Franchise Listings: Try to write the content like it is a marketing flyer that you would expect someone to pick up and read. Visitors want to know about how investing in your franchise opportunity can provide them with the lifestyle they daydream about. It is important to know why your current franchisees chose you over other opportunities. Don't just state what the business does, provide details on how this business helps others and provides a quality lifestyle and career for the potential franchisee. Feel free to include testimonials from clients and franchisees. You need to include a Call to action it can be as simple as stating "use the enquiry form below to register for your free information pack" 

For Suppliers Listings: Try to write the content like it is a marketing flyer that you would expect someone to pick up and read. Visitors want to know about your business and how it can make their life easier. Not just a list of services you provide, but details and examples on how those services can help them. Feel free to include testimonials from past/current clients. You need to include a Call to action it can be as simple as stating "use the enquiry form below to register for your free initial consultation" or "call us and mention Australian Franchises to receive 10% off" etc. 

For all Listings: We generally find that including a couple of photos of people such as your team or shop fronts, products etc or even stock images of happy business people can enhance a listing quite a bit.

Finally if you send in regular articles (say once a month) then we can publish these and optimise them for SEO and link them to your listing. This increases your listings Google ranking and we also broadcast it on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and RSS feeds. This can have a big impact on the number of leads generated for you.

Franchise News publication is provided for free and preference will always be given to paid advertisers over free basic listings. We reserve the right to reject, modify and edit any articles sent in for publication on our site.

We have 2 articles sections on our site; News & Expert. We recommend you utilise both. For News send in articles about your industry; perhaps regarding new legislation or technology and how it will affect business.
If you are considered an expert in a particular field then feel free to send in articles about that field that may assist others. We will publish these in the Experts section the same way we publish News with the Social Media broadcasts to boost lead generation.
