FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How can I be successful as a Big Frog owner?
In a “normal” retail business, you might rely heavily on the location of your store and advertising to get customers. With Big Frog, both of these methods are effective. Additionally, we have found that if our owners spend time in the community networking, and getting involved in community activities and events, the store can do even better. Networking within your chamber and with other business owners can generate more awareness and sales. Digital advertising including SEO – search engine optimization – and social media can be very effective. Big Frog can train you on some or all of these opportunities. Owning any business requires hard work and dedication to be a true success.
