    Hello to answer your questions:
    Question: Will this website continuously countdown to the following year’s franchise day or is it just for the 2011 franchise appreciation day?
    Every year it will countdown for each year. We are looking to do this annually.


    When I registered, and clicked submit, the page didn’t refresh. Im not sure if my information took. Is it supposed to refresh?
    The form should have refreshed after you hit submit. What browser are you using?

    I don’t see any obvious usability issues or glitches on your website.

    – Awesome!

    I wish there were some examples of discounts or coupons that participants get from registering on this website.
    – Closer to the day, we will list giveaways by Franchise

    I’m a little confused. Are we only supposed to vote for already participating franchises or are we supposed to nominate one?

    – No Voting


    Thank you for your feedback

    That’s not the take away I want consumers to have. It’s about Franchisees showing appreciation to their consumers an consumers showing appreciation for franchises. Building and Strengthening the relationships between consumers and franchisees.
     
    We already have all the share buttons on the top of the website, so we didn’t want to overwhelm them with more share buttons. But I guess If I do one (twitter) i might as well do them all.
     
    Thank you!

    Hello Matt,
    To answer some of the questions you asked..
     
    I guess “franchise” refers to restaurant chains, correct?
    Not just restaurant chains, but any franchise business which falls into multiple different categories.
     
    Why do I need to provide my mobile number? Will I be getting unwanted text messages or phone calls?
    First thing, based on your feedback and other feedback on here, we made it so the “mobile number” is NOT a requirement. We ask for the number so for consumers that doe not have a smart phone can receive text that day ONLY regarding specials.
    Should I be entering the name of my city along with the zip code? Or just the zip code?
    City, Zip Code or both. I also just added a brief explanation on why we need this information.
     
    Yes those franchises are the appropriate response.
     
    I hit the Submit button, and the message that appears has a few small details that need attention: “labor day” should be capitalized, and the last sentence is worded awkwardly. Flipping the sentence around to say “Share this with 3 friends to receive extra FREE giveaways” might make it more readable. Also, I notice there are Facebook Like and Send buttons, and a Tweet button, but no Google +1 button, even though a +1 button is included at the top of the page. Seems incongruous.
    – Yes we will be making all the necessary changes you suggested regarding “Labor Day”, Flipping the sentence around, and adding the facebook like/send button beside the twitter button.
     
    We slow down the rotating message on the home page. We will also be adding a FAQ and Policy Page.
     
    Truly Appreciate the feedback.

    Hello,
    Yes we will be adding a FAQ page as well as a privacy page.
    Once we start loading all the other participating franchises on the site, we will be putting more of a static layout of all the participating franchises on the participate page.
    Closer to the date is when we will release the deals that each franchisee will be giving.
     
    Thank you!

    Hello Latasha,
    We will be making all the necessary changes you suggested regarding “Labor Day”, and Flipping the sentence around.
     
    After this franchise appreciation day will your site automatically post he next date or have some type of countdown till next year?
    Yes it will have the countdown for next year.
    Under the participate sign up page you asked for a person’s mobile number, will customers be getting text on possible offers? Or calls about promotions?
    For consumers that does not have a smartphone, so they can also receive any extra deals specific franchises might want to give out.
    I would like to know what the purpose of that. I also see that you asked for age. Is this that some offers are for adults only? Or for demographic company purposes?
    So we can send appropriate info regarding specific deals for Franchise Appreciation Day.
    What is the reason for the zip code?
    So we can send you deals of franchises near you.
     
    Also all the verbiage and sentence changes you mentioned above, we correct them.
     
    Thank you.
