Just like other franchisors, you have probably searched the web and spoken to other firms to discover the best platform that can do all phases of your online presence. Perhaps you got a company that does webdesign, another firm is your CMS vendor, another guy is your SEO expert, then lastly a PPC guru. You surely have spent valuable time trying to track different web companies down, rather than just focusing on your core business.

1stbay brings your entire digital presence under a single umbrella. We offer you a flexible service at an unmatchable speed. In addition, our marketing platform will integrate with your legacy systems. You don’t have to worry about losing business continuity or having to manage two separate sets of data.

As a franchisor, you may find it hard to maintain and control your brand image as well as message at the local level. Your franchisees want options. They need fresh content, whether it’s a simple blog post, a local discount, a video, or a Facebook post.

1stbay makes sure that you are allowed to create your brand and approve content which would be consistently made available to the franchisees in a franchisor controlled environment.

Marketing is merely a numbers game. What works and what doesn't can be easily quantified. It can be in the form of knowing which PPC keywords drive actions on your website to help write other marketing collateral. It can also be through quickly testing different landing pages to help guide a larger design objective. Numbers don't lie.

We believe in transparency. We know how much valuable it is to show you everything. It's up to you to decide what information is important and what isn't. Data without action is meaningless. We'll be there to do the heavy lifting for you or give you the tools to make changes on your own.

Finding customers online can be a daunting task as a franchisor. It can be frustrating so we will handle it for you.
