The marketing skills you'll need to grow your franchise business vary with the type of business you're in – as well as where and how you do business. Food, retail, and service businesses each require different marketing skills; storefront, mobile, and home-based businesses mean different approaches to finding customers; and the ways to attract customers are not the same for different industries or sectors (restaurants, senior care, or home repair service, for example).

You have to spend money to make money. So the old saying goes. In franchising you can spend a lot or a little, and still make money. Once you've decided 1) that you want a franchised business, and 2) what industry segment you'd like to work in (fast food, home repair, pet care, etc.), it's time to determine what you can afford. Your "budget" will limit your choices.
