Where would you like your business to be in three years?

That’s the question we start every project with.

At Collective Seven and our new Franchise Marketing Consultancy company SparkVertical, we’ve designed a comprehensive portfolio of services that we specifically tailor for each individual franchisee. We focus our marketing on what works best for your individual franchise location so you can strategically grow your business at a pace that works best for you.

We bring to the table an incredible team of marketing professionals and designers that focus on growing your specific franchise brand. Our two founders have decades of experience in marketing, design, and business development (co-founder Barney Cohen grew his business from startup to $1Billion in annual revenue within 15 years.)

If you would like to double your business we can help.

We’ve worked with Michael Smith and his team at the Collective Seven Agency over the past few years now and could not be happier with their work. From the initial strategy, our new website, and social media presence, to being sure clients found us online in searches, they set everything up and allow me to have an outsourced design and marketing company without the overhead. As a business owner, I love that the phone rings off the hook and we are very excited to have them on our team!
— Ken "Rico" Smith, Rico's Auto Buff

At Collective Seven we don’t work with hundreds of different brands – we work with a select few that we get to know really, really well.

We know and love our franchise partners and are really excited about everything we’ve learned working directly with the owners to help grow their businesses. We dive deep in our research of the brands we work with, their local marketplaces, and have tested our work over and over again to learn what brings each franchisee owner the best results.

We offer you efficient, cost effective localized marketing programs to boost your search results and generate real business. In addition, we can not only dramatically cut your advertising spend but will get you more customers.

From increasing brand awareness in your local franchise region, to providing complete solutions for all of your marketing, advertising, business consulting and more - we’re the team you’ve been looking for and are just one phone call away.

A Few of our franchise partners


Collective Seven knows franchise marketing.

Collective Seven and our new company SparkVertical bridge the gap by making it easier for consumers in need of your services to find you on the local level-- and we do it without snowing you with technical mumbo jumbo or selling you outdated SEO services you don’t need. Every franchise location is different; there’s no sense in generating leads that don’t apply to your franchise location, especially if those leads cost you more than the sale is worth. We’ll help put the right street-level marketing strategy in place to generate the calls you need to remain competitive and profitable.

Any national franchisor website, advertising, and marketing campaign, by nature, has to be all things to all people; but the Pacific Northwest market is vastly different to the Miami, New York or Austin demographics and markets. Often times, the national franchisor and local franchisee are not sure where to start when developing the most cost effective marketing and advertising strategies that work at national, regional and local levels. That’s where we come in.

We help the local franchisee to get more customers in the door and the national brand to sell more franchises.

In addition to business development strategies, our research, creative, and marketing processes allow us to create highly converting local and national brand awareness, advertising, and marketing campaigns that cost-effectively integrate and seamlessly align with the national franchisor brand guidelines.

Collective Seven identifies ways your national ad spend and the franchisee local advertising can work together more effectively.
