COVID-19 has resulted in a “new normal” when it comes to marketing to farmers and ranchers. Unfortunately, many small Ag businesses feel unprepared to create a strategy that will meet the challenges of this “new normal.”
An article from Forbes, Marketing Your Business in The Midst of Covid-19: 5 Tips to Stay Afloat, provides suggestions to small business owners – including those in the Ag industry – who are looking to pivot their marketing during these trying times. What follows are those suggestions:
- Reassure your customers
- Get creative
- Kick things up on social
- Build relationships virtually
- Improve your online presence
The article ends by emphasizing that now is not the time to put the brakes on your marketing efforts. Instead, it is an opportunity to be more strategic than ever, put yourself in the shoes of farmers and ranchers, and better market to those farmers and ranchers.
