Godsey and Pense plan to sell affordable and lucrative sub-franchises within this area, while retaining about 20% of the master territory for their Vanguard Digital Marketing LLC subsidiary, which will sell Big Mouth Direct’s digital solutions to businesses.

Business Partners With Entrepreneurial and Technical Expertise

Godsey and Pense both have extensive business and technical experience. Godsey has strong software and e-commerce business development skills, garnered from owning his own business since 2005. He has also maintained an active membership in professional organizations dedicated to the following:

  • Study and practice of business ethics
  • Relationship development
  • Clear communication
  • Leadership
  • Sales
  • Success principles
  • Team development
  • Mentorship
  • Applied knowledge
Godsey says,
Nearly a decade of applying these skills has given me valuable experience in working with people for truly win-win outcomes. That’s what it’s all about—all lasting businesses are built on solid relationships and with integrity.

Pense developed his business skills early and firsthand, watching his parents as they ran their own businesses—from a family farm to a startup information technology provider.  By 1999, he had gained hands-on experience as he joined them in business and through his own ventures:

It is all about people—relating to them, listening to them, asking them thoughtful and relevant questions, and meeting the needs that they express and even some that they don’t. In becoming a master franchisor, we can empower those who have already taken the leap into business ownership through our product offerings but also, via our sub-franchises, provide opportunity for those who long to do so.

Financial Rewards for Sub-Franchisees and Arkansas Business Community

Godsey and Pense claimed an exclusive Big Mouth Direct territory in most of Arkansas and the eastern part of Oklahoma because of the growth potential and financial rewards for all involved. They also want to be at the forefront of shaping the e-commerce industry in their region and having a clear positive impact on their clients. They highlight the following advantages of Big Mouth Direct’s franchise system:

  • Proven business model
  • Parent company advisory support
  • Complete digital product offerings
  • Increased success rate for franchisees
  • Affordable Internet visibility for small- and medium-sized business owners
  • Advertising solutions to stay competitive and, ultimately, be successful
Godsey and Pense note that sub-franchisees who qualify and join their Big Mouth Direct Arkansas-Oklahoma territory will be part of an organization whose goals and values line up with those they hold personally—a rarity in today’s work environment. They will have the opportunity and support to develop a strong and profitable business that can make a meaningful difference in the lives of their families and in their communities at large. Godsey says,
Our master territory is our own backyard. It’s where we live, work, attend church and raise our families. It’s where our friends who are like family do the same. In short, we are invested here.

Pense adds,

As we expand with qualified sub-franchisees, we are able to extend this reach beyond our backyard and give others the opportunity to do the same. But it’s not just about capturing a sale or selling a territory, it’s about the long term. When we all win over the long haul, it means better lives for those involved in the franchise, our families, the business owners, their families, their customers, and the community as a whole.
