Great webinar for farmers selling at farmers market.
"Are You a Supermarket Vendor or a Super Market Vendor?"
Are you a farmer or food producer and can spare an hour to learn how to improve your sales at farmers markets? Yes? Then tune to our upcoming webinar for a crash course in how to provide customers with an amazing shopping experience while browsing and purchasing your outstanding products. Hosted by University of Maryland Extension Agricultural Marketing Specialist Ginger Myers, this webinar will help you stand out in the increasingly competitive farmers market landscape so that you leave the market with an empty truck and full cash box.
Myers will teach you the fundamentals of “relationship marketing” where the customer experiences a value-add connection with you as the producer. This webinar walks you through display techniques, signage, communication using social media, and vital customer service techniques that convert farmers market shoppers into your loyal customers who will shop with you with you rain or shine.
This webinar is offered in partnership with the University of Maryland Extension Women in Agriculture Wednesday Webinars and the Rural Maryland Council.
