We’ve been an extremely satisfied client of Franchise Gator for over 3 ½ years. We’ve engaged other portals during that period but none came close to producing the leads AND the deals that Franchise Gator has generated. Franchise Gator is integral part of our lead development portfolio. Since we started using them in April 2011, we’ve grown from 27 franchised locations to over 220 today. Franchise Gator has been a great partner and we will continue to use them for the foreseeable future.

Our ad response since starting our campaign with you in January 2010 has exceeded our expectations. We are very pleased with the quality of leads, particularly when compared to previous franchise portal sites with whom we've advertised. And while we receive more numbers of these high quality Gator leads than from sites we've used in the past, Gator's unique price-per-lead model actually gives us a lower net cost per lead. Your free assistance in coaching us to respond better to inquiries through your webinars and training sessions with your sales team is a real added value and has truly benefited our sales efforts and results."
