Challenge: Overcoming operational hurdles and reducing launch time of key campaigns 

In turning to Fluency, Five Mile Marketing faced the significant challenge of deploying new creative content across hundreds of accounts and multiple marketing platforms efficiently. Its existing process was time consuming and prone to errors and inconsistencies from location to location, posing a constant hurdle to scalability and operational efficiency — especially because it monopolized valuable time and resources to fix errors once they were discovered. 

The Five Mile Marketing team aspired to not only mitigate errors, but significantly reduce the launch time of their campaigns from its 5 to 10 day process, with fewer mistakes. In order to do this, Five Mile Marketing needed a solution to transform cumbersome manual tasks into a streamlined, automated process.

Solution: Streamlining operations and boosting performance with automation 

Five Mile Marketing’s collaboration with franchise systems has underscored the importance of enhanced speed-to-market to significantly amplify their competitive edge. Their team needed the ability to launch new campaigns, ads and landing pages across a diverse client base.

Fluency helped Five Mile design a solution that activated and scaled its data-driven approach, so that it could drive better outcomes while ensuring their ability to respond immediately to changing market demands and opportunities.  

The process involved the creation of marketing campaign blueprints, which is then implemented across all franchise locations. This method facilitates the aggregation of unified data that enable them to derive deeper insights into marketing efficacy and make more informed, swift decisions. This strategic approach leads to enhanced and more uniform performance across the franchise system, ensuring a cohesive brand experience and optimized results for their clients.

Five Mile Marketing is now meeting their goals in streamlining their operations and boosting their overall performance. Previously, creating campaigns and ads manually led to errors and inconsistencies across locations. Now, the team can create their marketing campaigns at scale across multiple advertising platforms, thereby mitigating errors and fostering a more unified and efficient marketing strategy.

“We can deploy ads to large multi-location clients in minutes, versus days. This has allowed us to test more creatives, funnels, and landing pages and improve performance for our clients. I never expected to get the level of support we received. They have gone above and beyond our expectations.”  - Curt Feather, Founder at Five Mile Marketing

Result: Revolutionizing operational efficiency and scaling impact with Fluency 

Five Mile Marketing team has significantly improved its operational efficiency and effectiveness in launching new campaigns, ads, and landing pages. Previously, a launch process would take 5-10 business days to get off the ground. Now, they’re capable of deploying campaigns for large franchise systems within minutes. This enhanced efficiency enables their team to engage in rapid testing — creating tests in a matter of hours or days as opposed to weeks or months. Without automation, the business landscape at Five Mile Marketing would look drastically different. The company would need to employ a sizable team of ad managers dedicated solely to the creation and day-to-day management of campaigns. 

By leveraging automation, the Five Mile Marketing team has also reduced errors and minimized manual mistakes. In addition, responsiveness to market changes has dramatically increased, allowing for quick adaptability and optimization. These process improvements have led to key outcomes, including:

  • A 30% boost in performance within the first month alone with the adoption of Fluency’s notification-based feature
  • A 30% increase in lead and impression performance within the first month for a major client with a 200 location franchise system
  • Lead and impression performance has improved 250%

With the partnership, Five Mile Marketing has fundamentally shifted where the team directs their efforts, pivoting from manual campaign management to focusing on strategy and creative development. This shift has not only optimized resource allocation but also enhanced client outcomes because of the superior level of customer service they can provide. 

These efficiency and performance gains have enabled the company to allocate more resources toward growth: They can now confidently increase client acquisition while delivering on their core value proposition of bespoke strategy and execution for multi-location brands. 

“Fluency is the only platform I found that was both robust and flexible. We tried every platform on the market; this was the only one that met our needs.” - Curt Feather, Founder at Five Mile Marketing
