JournoLink and Quality Franchise Association join forces to promote franchises

JournoLink, the innovative online PR platform, and the Quality Franchise Association (QFA), representing new and upcoming franchise businesses, have partnered to create a dedicated PR solution for members of the QFA, enabling them to engage with the media and promote the successes of their franchise models, and the local news of their franchisees.

Co-founder of JournoLink, Peter Ibbetson welcomed the venture. ‘We have built the JournoLink platform to enable businesses to engage with the media, but without the need for a large budget. Our model suits franchises perfectly in that franchisors can make the services available to their individual franchisees too, giving them access to local media to share their news in the locations where they serve their customers.’

Joel Bissitt, CEO of the Quality Franchise Association, and a long term franchisor himself, commented, ‘We have a growing membership, many being new franchises, and by linking with the JournoLink platform we are able to provide them with a member benefit that genuinely will help them grow their profile and brand reach, something that is at the heart of all successful franchises. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with JournoLink.’
