October 06, 2014 // Franchising.com // Atlanta, GA - By helping local businesses turn new movers into long-term customers, Welcomemat Services has reshaped the customer-loyalty industry. Now Welcomemat Services is expanding its offering by introducing the Welcomemat Home Collection program.
Like the traditional Welcomemat Services package, the Home Collection program provides local businesses with in-depth hyper-local trends for prospective customers. However, the Home Collection offering is an option for home-service businesses that wish to connect with higher income demographic customers moving into single family homes.
After these higher-income level (high mid to upper class) individuals and families move into a home, they will receive a Welcomemat Home Collection packet with gifts from local home service businesses, such as plumbers, landscapers and pest control businesses.
"Several home-service businesses have reached out to our corporate office and franchisees, asking to be included the Welcomemat Services packet. But the traditional Welcomemat packet is mailed to those moving into homes as well as apartments and condos. By creating the Welcomemat Home Collection specifically targeted to this targeted demographic moving into single family homes, we are helping home service businesses maximize their return on investment," said Brian Mattingly, Welcomemat Services Founder and CEO.
The Welcomemat Home Collection will be rolled out in March 2015 in the Indianapolis; Seattle; Nashville; Gwinnett, Georgia; and Fort Lauderdale markets. By 2016, the company anticipates the offering will be available system-wide.
Welcomemat Services has become the go-to source for small businesses seeking big data. Unlike traditional direct marketing companies, Welcomemat Services franchisees provide their clients with new mover data, including the number of new movers in specific ZIP codes, and analysis on offer redemptions, helping them build long term loyalty and marketing strategy.
Welcomemat's ability to generate revenue for its clients is the reason the company is growing at an impressive rate. Since January 1, 2014, Welcomemat has grown from 19 to 33 franchise-owned locations, with four new franchisees expected to open before the end of the year.
Welcomemat Services also has its sights set on adding franchise locations in Houston, Texas; Charlotte, N.C. and Coastal South Carolina markets.
"A good first impression will turn a new mover into a long-term customer. With Welcomemat's addition of the Welcomemat Home Collection, we are providing our franchisees with another tool to assist local businesses, specifically those businesses focused on customers in single family homes," added Mattingly.
A leader in the $133-billion local advertising industry, Welcomemat Services is a marketing strategies and technology company that provides loyalty solutions designed to target families who have recently changed their address. Since 2003, Welcomemat Services' technological innovation and marketing sophistication has enabled the brand to change the face of the direct-mail marketing industry.
