What Marketing Resources Do You Provide?
One of the great benefits of owning a Made in the Shade franchise is that you will start out with a proven marketing plan that helps drive customers to your business. You will not have to reinvent the wheel!
You will have direct access to a robust collection of first class, pre-designed marketing materials to grow your business with quality branded marketing. Printed materials include business cards, brochures, door hangers, postcards, banners, signs, ad slicks, and even vehicle wraps! We also provide our franchisees with our own in-house print provider so you can conveniently order affordable, customized printed media as needed.
Each of our Franchise Owners receives access to a fully mobile-friendly website ready for you to customize with your own photos, social media, bios, customer reviews, and contact information. Unlike other franchises, whose owners share a national web site with a single landing page, we allow you both privileges: You will receive a customized, local website, which is also integrated with a landing page on our national website. Truly, this is the best of both worlds and double the online presence! As an added bonus, our marketing team has created a MITS exclusive tutorial library for personal training on how to use your website, so you can become the expert in customizing your marketing presence. Our high-performance websites are also Search Engine Optimized for superior local ranking in your sales territory.
As an added bonus, each of our Franchise Owners can partake in our ongoing marketing training via online webinars, exclusive to our Made in the Shade members. These webinars, conducted by our partnered team of experts, are invaluable in keeping you current with today’s marketing trends and strategies. We teach you how to secure and maintain a strong website presence in order to drive traffic to your site and generate leads for those profitable revenues!
We have partnered with a team of web developers and designers who provide the latest technologies and marketing techniques through combined decades of being in the web industry. There is so much more to online marketing than just the great-looking websites we provide and social media presence. Our highly skilled team works with our Franchise Owners to effectively use the latest state-of-the-art marketing tools to generate leads and maximize sales. Their professional support truly helps us reflect our trusted brand image and engage new clients.
You will receive expert guidance, support and shared best practices from our stellar Made in the Shade family of Franchise Owners through our private online forums and outstanding annual conferences. Ask any one of our team members and you will discover the generous camaraderie that a family-focused environment brings. One thing is for sure: You will never be without ongoing support as you grow your business!

We started our Made in the Shade Blinds & More (MITS) business earlier this year (2016) and initially felt that one of us could work the business full-time and the other could provide supplemental income and benefits. We soon realized that there was a lot of potential in the business that we were leaving on […]
We joined Made in the Shade in August of 2010 and have never looked back. After being in sales most of my career, and then having a baby, I was looking to get back into the workforce. However, I wanted to do something different. I had never owned a business and I didn’t have any […]
