Web.com Enterprise VS SeoSamba

One software to scale your marketing

Franchise marketing is all about being able to draw a consistent action plan that matches the brand’s messaging and goals. However, a marketing plan without the right tools to execute is still insufficient. 

Most franchises face the exact same dilemma, they have a strong marketing plan in place but without a tool to fulfil their KPIs. In this article, we compare and contrast two of the best known Franchise marketing software, Web’s Enterprise Centermak solution and SeoSamba’s FMOS (Franchise Marketing Operating System). 

Integration and on-boarding process

Marketing tools have very similar features and all require careful setup. However, the integration process varies radically between tools, and so does cost and timeline.

As such, integration, and on-boarding is crucial to any marketing software adoption and customer experience. 

Minimize integration costs, speed up time to delivery, and reduce risks

Integration cost is always a turn off for businesses. When it comes to SeoSamba’s software, it features a vertically integrated marketing framework, which makes it not only affordable with minimal integration cost but also the fastest way to deploy a featured-rich environment flawlessly in a minimal amount of time. 

E. g. chat, inbound calls management, SMS marketing and lead intelligence dashboards etc. are all pre-deployed. Most of the time, similar marketing software providers would have you pay extra for the additional marketing integrations your business demands. And since all these parts are pre-integrated, and everything is delivered by a single team, you avoid the circling service providers firing squad syndrome, and considerably reduce risks.

Highly processed on-boarding to deliver a high-quality product every time

At SeoSamba, a dedicated account management team makes sure everything is up and running according to a formal process that covers from 180 to 300 delivery points. Our on-boarding process features not only technical but also strategic guidance. 

The migration is also a big factor to take into account. If you are using an already integrated platform, you are most likely to need migration to your new solution. SeoSamba supports migration from all Content Management Systems, provided by the SeoSamba team. With additional seasoned consultation and guidance throughout the entire onboarding process.
