Social Media Marketing, Farm Products” – Oswego County Today

OSWEGO COUNTY – There’s no denying that using social media and the internet to market products has enormous benefits for businesses of all sizes and in all sectors, including those in agriculture of course.

These benefits include, but are not limited to, productive brand awareness building, audience targeting and engagement, and cost benefits (usually free or low cost to the user). Understanding how to make the most of what social media marketing (or SMM) has to offer your business can make all the difference in launching an SMM campaign that yields positive results.

Find out how simple and rewarding SMM can be for your agricultural business at an upcoming workshop, “It’s All About Clicking: Social Media Marketing and Agricultural Commodities”, proudly hosted by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County (CCE Oswego).
