Marketing is a very important piece in making a store a success, and we are here to help you in many different ways. We offer comprehensive marketing training as well as ongoing marketing support to all franchisees.
Marketing is made up of many areas including electronic media, print media, social media, digital media and local store marketing. During your training, we will cover all of these areas in-depth as well as marketing budgets and how to best allocate them. The following is a brief breakdown of the different areas of marketing:
This includes TV, cable, radio, Pandora, Hulu and others. We have a recommended media buyer that will help to get you up and running as well as plan long-term goals. Check out one of our latest Clothes Mentor commercials below.
We know the ins and outs of different forms of print media and how to best utilize them in our stores. We also create many items in-house for stores and work with proven vendors that make getting your print materials easy.
This is an ever-changing area and we offer a lot of support to franchisees. This includes assistance in setting up your social media, training, providing content as well as ongoing updates to be sure you stay current.
This includes clothesmentor.com, a comprehensive, mobile-responsive website that presents customers with easily accessible information about the brand as well as individual stores. It’s a place to learn about Clothes Mentor’s unique resale concept, be inspired by our trend guide and fashion blog and, ultimately, draw customers to your store. NTY Franchise Company works with a top search engine optimization (SEO)/digital company that helps to support the main brand website as well as provides a great option for you to promote your local store website with SEO.
Also part of digital marketing is the free Clothes Mentor app. It’s tied to Club CM, our customer loyalty program, and allows your customers to track their reward points and even store their receipts on their mobile device.
