The Challenge

When Yona Smith was hired to manage franchise development marketing at Homewatch CareGivers in 2011, she knew she was entering into a fast-paced environment. (After all, Homewatch CareGivers was a growing senior care franchise with a footprint the United States, Canada, and Latin America.) But in 2017, a new development was thrown into the mix—one that required Yona to be ready to adapt more than ever before...

Homewatch CareGivers International was acquired by Authority Brands, LLC.

With the acquisition came many changes—including the switch to a new fran dev marketing partner. While a change of this magnitude is always a challenge, Yona saw it as an opportunity. She set out to use the new resources available to her to grow the Homewatch CareGivers brand. She was ready to bring more franchisees on board, and part of that goal involved attracting the right prospects.

“My focus has always been on quality over quantity of franchise candidates—only after we get the quality piece right can we begin to think about increasing quantity. When we started working with our new marketing vendor, that was my goal.”

The Outcome
Improved web traffic and digital visibility.

“Our old website was built by a different development team. Your team took our website and turned it into a true digital brochure for our business—the traffic and visibility have never been better.”

The best tools in the business.

“Relying on Google Analytics for measuring website performance was not ideal—I felt like I needed a specialized degree to understand our web metrics. Your dashboard makes things SO much easier. There’s no guesswork and I have total transparency.”
