Growth. It’s what every parent wants for their children, and what every franchise digital marketing agency wants for itself. Ten years ago, Integrated Digital Strategies (IDS) started as an idea on a shoestring, setting up shop in three rooms where a handful of hardworking people dedicated themselves to the digital marketing needs of a dozen clients.
Today, we’re a global team of nearly 100 fully remote experts who excel at what we do - writers, marketers, designers, and more - all of whom strive to meet the needs of the 70 brands we service every day.
Our growth, our commitment to our clients, and our belief in our team means we’ve earned some recognition over the years, and today, we’re exceptionally proud to announce that IDS has made the 2023 Inc. 5000 list, a nationally recognized compilation of the fastest-growing private companies in America.
Making this roster required us to meet stringent criteria, including a minimum percentage of revenue growth between 2019 and 2022.
Our franchise marketing company has been committed to the needs of our clients from day one, and that dedication has allowed us to grow in impressive ways, as we fine-tune our franchise development marketing to help each client achieve their unique goals.
As proud as we are of the recognition our agency has received over the years, we know two things: It’s not a given, and it’s the result of the many, not the few. It’s no coincidence that the success IDS has enjoyed has come as our company has added more and more talented and dedicated individuals to our team, allowing us to achieve more for ourselves and our clients.
We’ve invested in human resources because we know it’s an important part of who we are and how we grow. They say it takes a village, and at IDS, we know that better than most.
As a full-service boutique digital marketing agency that specializes in franchise development, we help both big and small brands reach their full potential. To do that, we rely on a team made up of US members in Texas, Florida, Connecticut, Maryland, and Massachusetts, and international members in South Africa, Prague, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, and the Philippines.
And while we might be scattered across the globe, we act as a single entity, working together to set standards, reach goals, and support not just our clients, but each other.
Leading a global team is extremely rewarding and comes with important benefits we wouldn’t otherwise enjoy. We’ve learned to fine-tune communication and cooperation to accommodate something as basic as different time zones or as nuanced as language or cultural differences.
This kind of flexibility and responsiveness is something we’re able to offer our clients as well, as we strategize to help them grow their brands and adapt their digital marketing campaigns to meet their changing needs.
The fact is, the IDS team benefits from each member’s life experiences, skills, and perspective; it’s what has allowed us to develop better business strategies and solutions for ourselves and for our clients - and studies bear out that fact. The more diverse a company is in terms of gender, ethnicity, and culture, the better able it is to outperform businesses with a less inclusive approach.
International teams are far more likely to collaborate, and because members work in different time zones, they can tackle tasks around the clock for quicker turnaround times and increased productivity.
We believe - no, we know - the expert services we can provide our brands are a result of the breadth of experiences each member of the IDS team brings - knowledge they use to exceed our clients’ expectations every day.
The IDS team provides a robust suite of online marketing solutions for franchise and multi-location businesses, considering the needs of clients to find the best mix of products and services to help them grow. We can help your brand reach its best customers through the following:
