Our franchise community has always been very supportive, sharing tips, suggestions for how to handle various situations, training, etc. Being an active member of our franchise community is invaluable.

I feel there is a good, strong core franchise community especially amongst the Facebook page users and those who frequent the conferences. It’s great to be able to reach out to them at midnight when needed.

They continue to fine tune and tweak our processes (i.e. green screen shooting, or outdoor lighting) to help us achieve the best possible quality images.
