Fully Promoted is a Local Business Resource with Worldwide Reach in Meeting Promotional, Branded Needs & Local Business Goals
(West Palm Beach, Fla.)—Business owners everywhere are looking for unique and different ways to ‘stand out’ and be noticed in an increasingly competitive marketplace. Often, they turn to their local Fully Promoted expert for guidance on how to get more customers. Now, Fully Promoted represents an evolution that provides a wider variety of marketing and advertising solutions to their clients. Fully Promoted was formerly known as EmbroidMe. The name change was prompted by company research showing the strong, lasting relationships franchisees have with their customers.
“Customer confidence in what we have to offer prompted us to look at new ways we can better meet our customers’ needs. The pillar of our business will always be branded apparel and products but now we are evolving to ensure that we are providing local business owners with a variety of marketing services that will help them grow and be successful. The same customer who needs their business logo on a shirt or promotional item often also needs print services or digital marketing solutions. Now we are uniquely positioned to meet all those needs”.
Those are the words of Joe Loch, President of Fully Promoted, the world’s largest promotional products franchise, who sees Fully Promoted’s more than 300 Resource Centers in 12 countries working with multitudes of community businesses they serve by providing the answers to the question “Are you Fully Promoted?”.
Fully Promoted is part of the family of brands under United Franchise Group, The Global Leader for Entrepreneurs. It is a unique retail location that serves as a marketing resource for small to medium business owners, who need access to marketing expertise. Fully Promoted provides a customized customer experience their customers value and that keeps them coming back. For them, Fully Promoted is like having their own marketing department!
As testament to its success, Fully Promoted was ranked 20th by The Advertising Specialty Institute’s (ASI) Counselor magazine in its annual Top 40 Distributors listing, which recognizes the top distributors in the promotional products industry based upon the previous year’s gross revenue.
“Our business is still very much a ‘touch and feel’ operation,” Loch said. “Our customers enjoy coming to our Resource Centers and actually seeing the quality of the item they are going to buy. We are a consultative business and we work closely with our customers to determine which items work best for the goal of what they are trying to achieve.”
Fully Promoted expects to add 70 new Resource Centers during the remainder of 2017, targeting markets across the U.S. for domestic growth. By 2020, the Fully Promoted brand is expected to boast 500 locations worldwide.
With a proven track record of success, Fully Promoted offers prospective franchisees a proven B2B model with standard business hours and no industry experience required.
“We are looking for good people who have the desire to work hard, operate and manage their own business” said United Franchise Group CEO Ray Titus. “From a ‘needs and wants’ perspective, the Fully Promoted investment isn’t just about the income it will create, it’s about the positive quality of life that we offer. It’s very fulfilling to know you are helping other local business owners to thrive and grow”, said Titus.
While many franchise concepts push multiple-unit ownership, Fully Promoted not only features a modest investment cost, but a business model that offers the potential to build a strong business from a single location.
“Our business model attracts a high-level person who wants to build a large company from one location,” Titus said. “We consider ourselves fortunate that our franchisees aren’t forced to manage multiple locations just to make a significant income.”
The promotional products industry has seen eight consecutive quarters of growth. Fully Promoted, whose customers benefit from its enormous buying power as well as a worldwide network of specialists, has outpaced the industry average.
“The industry is still very fragmented with small, independent operators,” Loch said. “Fully Promoted should be the name you think of when you when you need to grow your business, whether that is with branded shirts, promotional products, or a variety of other advertising solutions.
