Case Study - Scout & Molly's Boutique
How Scout & Molly’s Boutique used DigiSphere Marketing’s Corporate Franchise Marketing System to enhance their online presence and increased traffic and conversions for the Brand Development, and each Franchisee’s direct sales.
Scout & Molly’s Boutique was looking to enhance both the look as well as the conversion rate of their corporate franchise websites. In addition, they wanted to provide a more comprehensive digital offering to their Franchisees and engaged DigiSphere as their agency of record to create a comprehensive franchisee marketing package for their Franchisees to have access to. They also wanted to offer better free resources to their Franchisees digitally.
The first step was to come provide a better architecture and visual online presence for their Corporate and Franchise sites. The Corporate site needed to provide much better interfaces for finding Franchise Locations and helping those locations convert more sales when found. The Franchise site needed to tell the store faster and increase conversions of new potential Franchisees. Some of the challenges we had to solve included:
- Revamping the locations finder for domestic franchise locations
- Creating an online Corporate Portal for Franchisees to have access to useful information and brand guidelines/content/tools.
- Giving Franchisees a better digital presence that converts more direct sales and directions from the main corporate site
- Customizing the third-party Big Commerce e-commerce sites to match the Corporate brand
- Providing a better architecture and site layout/design on the Franchise site to be more concise, and direct, and increase franchising lead conversions.
- Implementing Schema Markup throughout the sites as well as marking up FAQ pages.
- Better Organic results from on-page and off-page optimization strategy implementation.
- Better GTM, and GA4 Implementation to refine is being reported on so the company can make better business decisions and have more visibility down to the Franchise store level.
- Providing a corporate marketing program that works for all Franchisees to increase their online presence and increase sales.
