When it came to digital marketers in the city of Chicago, Blackhawk Digital Franchise has seen plenty of growth.
In the past two years, the Chicago-based company has seen its share price double, and it’s the second-largest online marketing platform in the US.
Blackhawk has grown its digital portfolio from five teams in its infancy to 20 teams across the country, with a focus on social media, SEO, and advertising tech.
The Chicago-area team has been working on its latest project: Blackhawk’s first digital marketing franchise.
The team is working to grow the franchise, which it says will include the ability to reach consumers via social media.

“We’re working on a new digital team to build our franchise, and we’re looking to do this with a lot of resources.
We want to build a brand new digital business and we want to do it quickly.”
While the team has yet to announce the location for the franchise yet, Nevin said the Chicago team will be located in Chicago.
The company has had success with digital marketing over the years, with its teams growing in size as it has expanded its reach.
In 2014, Black Hawk had 10 teams spread across the US, with six of those teams based in Chicago and the remaining six in Atlanta.
That year, Black Hawks digital teams expanded to 18 teams.
That’s about double what it has now, and Nevin expects to see that number grow in the coming years.
“The reason for that is that we’ve always had a lot to offer in terms of a brand and brand visibility,” Nevin told Business Insider.
“There’s a lot more to it than just social media marketing.
There’s a brand, a mission, and a vision behind it.”
The Chicago team also has experience with SEO and brand building.
The city is known for its vibrant tech and startup scene, which is reflected in the team’s focus on SEO.
In 2016, the team spent the summer working on an SEO team.
Nevin also pointed out that the Chicago teams team has worked on many projects with digital teams over the last several years, including the Blackhawk SEO franchise.
“I’ve been involved in digital for a number of years and I’ve seen it grow,” he said.
“That’s not something we’re reinventing.”
The new team will have the same focus on marketing, but Nevin is confident that the team will grow and be better positioned to deliver its brand and mission.
“In the short term, it’s about getting us better positioned for the future,” he told Business Insider.
“But in the long term, we’re going to be better placed for the business and the growth that Blackhawk can offer.”
For the new team, the goal is to grow its digital footprint to reach its target audience, including millennials and other digital marketers.
“If we can reach a lot and we can grow and reach a bigger audience, then we’ll be more able to serve those customers better,” Nvin said.
The Blackhawk team will also be able to better serve advertisers in the future, with Nevin noting that Black Hawk will be able “be more focused on their core business.”
The team will continue to build the franchise.
It plans to expand the team to a third team in the near future, and will likely have at least two teams based out of the city in the next two years.
For the Chicago franchise, Nvin is confident in the brand.
“It’s a great company,” he explained.
“When we started, there was just a brand.
We’re now at a brand-new business that we want the team that will help us grow that brand and help us reach that target audience.”
Blackhawk is currently focused on growing the franchise’s social media and SEO efforts.
In a recent report, BlackHawks team noted that it was working on “the best strategy to reach Millennials” and that it will also reach younger audiences.
“One of the biggest challenges is to get people to engage with their content and their brands and our mission,” Niven said.
In addition to expanding the team, BlackHawk has also expanded its business model.
The startup has expanded the reach of its marketing teams, with some teams having a presence in over 50 markets.
BlackHawks first team, however, was focused on building the franchise by focusing on social.
“Our teams are in the social marketing space.
The people we’ve built around social are in that space.
We have an existing social media team and we’ll build a social team for
