Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Food Crops and Products Business

You have to be light on your feet to stay ahead of the curve these days, especially when you're promoting a food crops and products business. We have the information you need to create a nimble, yet effective marketing strategy for your business.

It's a misconception that small businesses can't compete with larger companies when it comes to marketing.

Top performers habitually integrate sound marketing concepts with market demands.

Mailings

There are a lot worthwhile reasons for food crops and products businesses to conduct direct marketing. Unlike other marketing tactics, direct mail has the potential for exceptional ROI, as long as the messaging is strong and your mailing list is targeted toward likely customers. Third-party providers have a reputation for generating accurate mailing lists that can be sorted to accommodate niches and subsections of the market. Despite the added upfront expense, premium mailing lists are a smart investment if for no other reason than their ability to generate higher conversion rates.

Competitive Awareness

Competitive awareness is the starting point for creativity in marketing. There's nothing wrong with creativity, but if it precludes your messaging from being represented alongside other food crops and products businesses, it could be a sign that you're out of touch with the marketplace. At a minimum, we recommend seeking a third-party perspective before you adopt any innovations that dramatically alter your marketing model.

Social Media Monitoring

Social media has become a prominent fixture in marketing. For small businesses, an aggressive social media campaign can level the playing field by generating online buzz that competes with corporate marketing initiatives. Even though the potential for social media to generate positive conversations about your product is good, the potential for it to create negative, online word-of-mouth is a concern that must be taken seriously. These days, food crops and products businesses have too much at stake to ignore derogatory social media mentions. To counter negative social media, you'll need to monitor your brand's online presence and enter the conversation, redirecting negative discussions toward more positive topics.
