Marketing for your farm

Understand the market of your farm

If someone today asks you a simple question that “Who do you think your products from farm are marketed for?” then chances are there that you will only say that “people who will purchase” as the answer.

But if you provide it with sufficient time and consideration you will definitely realize that it is much bigger than just “people who will purchase”.

Do adults like men and women purchase more often from you? Or are they the old aged people? Do your customers belong to a specific kind of ethnic group? Do they reflect that they belong to a certain income level class? Or are they all from a specific area or locality?

If you already have a large base of customers then you have to do very little task of thinking about the best customers out of them.

According to you, who are these people and in what category would you, consider them to be in? If you are among the newcomers and you currently do not have any base of customers then you may need to find out about your competitors and get a firm grip on understanding of their base of customers.

By understanding the customers of your niche and the various prospects of them, you can take a hike in the possibility of them purchasing the products they need from you by manipulating the messages that you possess to the market for their required needs and desires.

As a matter of fact, the demographics for your target may differ a lot on the basis of a variety of products and the services you are offering.

As an example, if you won a farm of sheep then the stock of your breeding may be lower like up to 4-Hers, but on the other hand if you deal with the pasture-raised lambs then your customers might be the ones that reside in a big city that require a traveling time of around two to three hours.

Moreover, you might have a customer base that is spread all over the country if you are dealing with the fleeces which are purchased mostly by females of middle age.

Make your farm stand out of the crowd

It is extremely necessary for your business to make its unique establishment in the seller’s market or the USP.

A USP might be considered as an answer to the most complex question “why would someone ever purchase something from me instead of buying from my competitors?” what are the various distant benefits that can be offered by your farm? It can range from a large variety of properties such as quality of the products, their freshness, the quality of service, and rarity.

These all are some great examples for the part of your USP.

A good USP is a perfect combination of being very clear, simple, and a purely concise description of the various benefits that you are willing to provide to your customers.

Your USP acts as a guide for you so that whenever you feel lost and your starts to become unclear, you can rely on it as well as on your products and the demographics of your targeted customers.

Therefore, make sure that you provide a good amount of time to create a USP and make sure that you note it down in a prominent place.

Whether it is a USP for the field of gardening shed, barn, or the office, your USP should always be in front of you and should be visible to you so that it can always provide you with the purpose of your farm and the direction you are taking it to.

The moment you get familiar with what are you selling and to whom you wish to sell and ultimately what is the thing that makes it apart from the crowd, you are all set to go for implementing a plan for your marketing.

There is a wide range of components that are incorporated by a lot of marketing plans. This includes a lot of things that are needed to be put into consideration such as a logo, tagline, website, and advertisement.

Create a logo for your farm

A logo for your farm can be anything that ranges from a highly simple text with the name of your company in a different font, or it can be something that makes use of a variety of elements for illustration that reflects your brand name in a well-organized manner.

A logo should be able to possess the image of the business that is completely dependent on your goals and the objectives you have planned.

They must also contain a general feeling of your brand. As an example, if you are among the people who own a farm of wildflowers that majorly deals with female clients then you should and have to include a lot of romance spreading elements for your logo such as using only soft colors, making it more natural and a font that looks a more girly.

However, if you have a farm that deals with horses, then your main purpose should be to possess a great strength and a sort of majesty with your logo. This can be achieved by making use of darker fonts and bolded letters. Your main purpose then should be to make it look as manly as you can.

It can be admitted that designing a logo is not a very big deal and the task of making it can be easily achieved by using a desktop computer but if in future you plan to expand your business and to make use of the logo in the packaging, you may require some aid from a professional logo designer.

These professional service providers will help you with the quality and the appropriate format that you are in need of and are nearly impossible to achieve with the usage of normal software for such purpose.

He will also be useful in case that you require something which is more of a polished work and follows all the standard fonts and formatting that would be required by you when you will consider using it in industrial packaging.

Also when you decide to get your logo designed professionally, the task of finding the right designer becomes dominant.

Have they ever worked with someone with a similar business like yours? Do they provide the appropriate designs that are required for your logo? If you are in need of illustrations for your logo, can the designer you choose deliver it? Can they work with advanced tools or are they limited to regular old clip arts?

You can expect the designer to provide you with some different versions of the logo you wish to get designed.

This includes a high-resolution file that would be ideal for the purpose of printing and a lower resolution of the image for the usage by the web and he should also provide you with a vector kind of file for the usage in embroidery purposes.

  1. Writing a tagline

According to the idea, the tagline of your brand should be something that is related so close to your brand that your competitors find it impossible to include the names of their brands.

Start processing the tagline for your brand by relating it to various ads that you see on your TV. Note them on a piece of paper and then try relating them. No matter if your initial ideas sound foolish, it may become the next most viral jingle of advertisements.
