CEO David Chapman shares industry leading franchise marketing tips that drive sales.

919 Marketing, the nation’s leading franchise marketing agency serving franchise brands and non-profits, was featured in the November Forbes| Agency Council article titled “"Six Underappreciated Traits or Skills That Will Give You A Competitive Advantage."

The article explored unique business skills that content marketing and public relations agency executives use to better position their firms in the marketplace. Relying on over 20 years of agency leadership expertise, 919 Marketing CEO David Chapman shared that the most important differentiator is to connect on a personal level when doing business.

“Very few people take the time to make a person-to-person connection, but that’s what makes you memorable,” says Chapman, “While nurturing that connection takes some time, it also makes doing business more rewarding because you tend to be more invested in and trusted by the people to whom you are providing service.”

Chapman echoed that same sentiment in the article featured on the Forbes website, one of the nation’s most well-read and respected business publications:

“Oddly enough, it’s little things like sending a thank you note, remembering birthdays, finding out what someone’s passion is and asking about it. Sounds simple, but very few people take the time to do it consistently.”

Moving forward, Chapman will be featured regularly by the Forbes | Agency Council – an invitation-only organization of public relations, creative and advertising agency executives that offers industry insights and advice. The knowledge-sharing forum drives conversation around trends and best practices in the content marketing, public relations, advertising and marketing industries. Participants are pre-screened to ensure that they have a successful leadership background and can effectively share insights on today’s pressing topics.

Chapman was chosen as a leading expert due to his success growing 919 Marketing over the past 20 years. Chapman’s company, 919 Marketing, is a franchise marketing firm that works with franchise and non-profit organizations to tell their stories through a variety of mediums, including public relations, video and digital content. Based in Raleigh, North Carolina, the firm provides nationwide service to its clients with satellite offices in Florida, Texas and Washington D.C.
