What were you doing 10 years ago — do you remember? Unless it was something remarkable, most of us wouldn’t be able to say what we were up to. But there are two people at Integrated Digital Strategies (IDS) who know exactly how their time was being spent 10 years ago: Steve Galligan and Joe Mohay were co-founding what would become our award-winning franchise digital marketing agency that now celebrates a decade in business, adding new team members to our roster and signing on more A-list clients on a regular basis.
Our longevity is no accident. Whether emerging or established, brands have trusted us to become an extension of their team, working hand in hand with their leaders to deliver a suite of boutique franchise marketing agency services that translate into exceptional results.
“We’ve been working with IDS for 10+ years across three brands, and they continue to demonstrate superior customer service and deliver industry-leading results for us as the franchisor, and more importantly, our franchisees,” said Chris Buitron, Chief Executive Officer, Mainline Brands.
Currently, IDS works with 75 franchisor clients and upwards of 1,000 individual franchisees, making it an exceptionally exciting time for us. Born as a natural extension of the decades of industry experience CEO Galligan and CRO Mohay have in the marketing and media realms, IDS is an international franchise development agency with team members located across the country, as well as in South Africa and the Philippines.
“It’s pretty hard to believe we started out with only a few employees in the US and today we employ a family of four dozen across the globe who are all committed to client goals and growth,” said Mohay.
“We are incredibly proud of our marketing experts and our roster of clients,” added Galligan. “Our growth is a direct result of our commitment to the growth of our clients. They know we have their back!”
During the last 10 years, our franchise digital marketing agency has had the pleasure of working with a wide spectrum of brands in far-ranging industries, including food and home services, healthcare, education, and more. We’ve recently added several marquee brands from private equity groups and have been tasked with executing digital marketing strategies for their combined portfolio of companies.
“We braced ourselves for a downturn at the start of the pandemic and had to do a bit of restructuring as a result,” Galligan recalled. “But we also did some pivoting to emphasize our franchisee marketing services and have seen a tremendous return from those efforts,” he continued. “Best of all, our clients are happy with their ROI, which is what matters most. They give us a dollar and we give them back several more. Who doesn’t love that?”
“IDS took on a huge project for us, orchestrating full website redesigns for all 10 of our brands in the middle of a pandemic — without skipping a beat,” remembered Brady Lee, Chief Operating Officer, United Franchise Group. “Their professionalism and the quality of their work has been instrumental in consistently delivering high-quality leads, month after month.”
With all its growth and successes, IDS is proud to have reached this 10th-anniversary milestone and is looking forward to the next 10 years of high-quality digital marketing for franchises. We know our success is a direct result of the support our clients and the franchise community at large have shown us, and we’re excited to continue serving them.
“This is a great time for the company, for our team, and for our clients,” said Mohay. “We can’t wait to see what the future has in store!”
