Top Franchisee Communications Skills

Franchisee communication skills are imperative in business. To be able to sell your franchise and brand effectively, you need to be able to communicate your franchise message in a clear and concise manner to a range of audiences.  

This sounds pretty simple, right? 

For some people, communication comes naturally. For everyone else, there are proven strategies and skills for developing effective communication. 

Below, we discuss our top franchise communication skills and how you can develop them further. 

Always be clear

Strive to make all franchise communication as clear and concise as possible. You want to get to the point straight away and as simply as possible. 

This notion should be followed for all franchise communication. You need to be able to communicate the message of your product or service in a few short words across all customer interactions, marketing materials, pitches and presentations. 

Show passion for your franchise

Franchise owners who display enthusiasm for their franchise product or service are the ones who succeed. 

You know yourself that you don’t want to deal with a business owner (as a customer or employee) who portrays a glum, bleak view of the world. 

Having a positive and upbeat attitude will encourage those around you to uphold the same attitude and passion for the franchise. This is a must for franchisee communication skills. 

Be a good listener

A large part of effective communication is being a good listener. As a franchisee you will be dealing with negotiations across numerous levels and the ability to listen, think, and brainstorm during this process will make it easier and more efficient. 

Listening is also important in recognising what your staff are saying and achieving. The more you listen to your staff they more they will be willing to voice their ideas and concerns for your franchise. 

Always ask questions

Following on from being a good listener, you need to ask questions. Asking questions whilst in discussion indicates to the person you are communicating with that you are paying attention and are focusing on what they are saying. 

It can be a natural instinct to think about what you are going to respond with whilst the other person is talking. Refrain from doing this and instead acknowledge what they are saying and probe further. This also gives you more time to come up with a clear response to further the communication.
