Franchise Networks Are Heating Up In July

International Franchise Association’s  Franchise Business Network (FBN) commenced October 1996. The FBN meetings were grassroots networking opportunities for the franchise community. They were designed to bring local franchisors, franchisees and suppliers together on a regular basis to create business-to-business opportunities and offer affordable educational programs.

FBN’s in Atlanta and Houston have exciting sessions scheduled for the month of July!




Jack Monson is speaking at the Southeast Franchise Forum / IFA Franchise Business Network July 12 in Atlanta. He is discussing best practices in Social Media Marketing specifically for Franchises.

Tactics that worked in the “old days” of four or fives years ago may not cut it this year or next. Jack will explore:

Yesterday v. Tomorrow

National v. Local

Paid v. Earned
