Use IT to Market Effectively

Times are tough. Money is tight and business owners are having to make difficult decisions. Cutting back on marketing can appear to be an easy and quick way to decrease expenses. However, it's during a recession that it becomes ever more important to maintain and grow your business. You want to be in a position to take advantage of recovery when it comes, rather than playing catch up.

I came across this article today on the importance of marketing in recovering from this economic recession. (Ok, I'll admit it, the article was sent to me by my sister since her husband was interviewed for it). In any case, the article contains some excellent tips for using technology to effectively market and grow your business in our current economy. The tips offered are just as important when times are good. And while the examples are not related to agriculture, it's the principle behind them that should be focused on.

As a farmer or ag business owner, do you see ways to use the tips offered to improve the effectiveness of your marketing? We'd like to hear from anyone with examples to share.
