Franchise Brand & SEO Marketing
SeoSamba was built from the ground up to maximize results for networked organizations and deliver benefits from group marketing concepts applied to the online world. SeoSamba’s exclusive, patent-pending ‘hub & spoke’ architecture is the only true distributed franchise marketing network technology that let's you market your sites network like Wikipedia.
Perhaps you've tried something like this in the past. Maybe your current solution is supposed to work like this. It seems that, though you think you're doing everything right, you've yet to realize the level of results you expected. How is SeoSamba's solution any different?
The answer lies in the technical framework. In a 10 year study by SeoSamba into commercial franchise and multi-site marketing systems, we've found that most operate technical frameworks that are flawed at the core. They're inevitably missing one (or more) of the 4 pillars required to successfully achieve the Wikipedia effect and build network momentum.
The good news is that if you already have a site network, you halfway there. If you are using SeoToaster or WordPress as a Content Management System, you're even closer. Regardless, we will map out a plan for you to quickly complete that journey towards success, retrofit your sites and get your sites' network on a new trajectory.
