What do you get when you combine dozens of franchisees, insightful presentations, tons of networking opportunities, hours of fun and three days in the warm Florida sun? The 2016 Bin There Dump That Franchise Conference!
This year’s event, held in Tampa, was the best one yet. It brought together more franchise operators than ever before — a reflection of our growing footprint and rising revenues throughout the United States and Canada. These franchisees were joined by members of our franchise leadership team, great guest speakers and key vendors.
Together, we learned a lot about what it takes to make a franchise business successful, and we wanted to share the most important lessons learned with you.
Here are three key takeaways from this year’s franchise conference:
Teamwork Is Tantamount To Success
The theme of this year’s conference was “Teamwork Makes The Dream Work,” and the importance of working together was echoed throughout the conference.
Our keynote speaker, Michael “Pinball” Clemons, is a former star running back in the Canadian Football League and a member of the CFL Hall Of Fame. Michael shared his unique perspective on the role teamwork played in the success of his teams, as well as in his individual career. He emphasized that having every person, every unit and everyone as a whole on the same page was the key to producing winning results.
Teamwork doesn’t just lead to winning results on the field; it plays a prominent role for businesses as well. When everyone in an organization works together, they create something bigger than themselves, and bigger than the sum of individual parts.
We explored how teamwork is a synergistic concept; your success can be driven by others and, at the same time, others are relying on you for their own success. Thus, the effort you exert doesn’t just reflect on you, but it reflects on your colleagues, peers and the brand. That’s why it is so important to continually strive for excellence; you’re not the only one counting on you.
Make Online Marketing A Priority
For any business, generating revenue and sales is the ultimate goal. But without effective marketing, businesses will ultimately fail.
Today, traditional marketing efforts such as networking, print advertising and fliers, must be complemented by a strong digital marketing strategy that makes it easier for customers to find you online and more likely to select you over the competition.
There’s no magic bullet for online marketing success, which makes it essential to stay ahead of the latest trends and best practices in search engine optimization, reputation management and Web design to create a comprehensive approach.
Of course, we recognize that not everyone is a digital marketing maven. That’s why, at Bin There Dump That, we help our franchisees set up their websites, enhance their Google rankings and develop winning digital advertising campaigns. In short, we work as a team to drive your success online.
Getting Together Is Key To Getting Ahead
The Bin There Dump That annual conference is the embodiment of the concept of teamwork, serving as a forum for collaboration, idea sharing and collective improvement every year.
It provides an open forum for all of the people that help set Bin There Dump That apart — national account representatives, the leadership team, franchisees, and strategic partners — to have their voices and opinions heard on critical topics.
For instance, some of the topics discussed this year included emerging best practices, maximizing equipment, ways to enhance and ramp up business and proven account management techniques.
However, teamwork isn’t just a one-time-a-year event, it is an ongoing initiative. At Bin There Dump That, our culture is built on open communication and teamwork.
The franchise leadership team regularly evaluates trends in the marketplace and provides ongoing guidance to franchisees, whether they are new to the team or established veterans. We also provide continuous training and support, to ensure that our franchisees are always improving themselves and their results. Just as important, we encourage our franchisees to share best practices and insights with one another to elevate the organization as a whole.
