This FREE learning session will offer farmers and producers the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to better promote and market themselves and their products. Southern Vermont is filled with small businesses that are generating high-quality agricultural products. There is a strong demand for these products across New England, presenting an opportunity for businesses to branch out and grow. Proximity to large markets like Boston and New York City adds to this potential. Does this opportunity resonate with you?

Farm and food business owners often say:

  • I don’t want to brag about myself
  • I’m way too busy to use social media
  • I’m intimidated when it comes to promotion and technology
  • I’m unsure about the return on investment that social media offers
  • I’m confused about how to make social media work for my business

Come learn how to share your Vermont story, feature and promote the products and people associated with your business and showcase the dedication and hard work that goes into making your products so delicious and desirable. Nicole Ravlin, principal at People Making Good will address your concerns and explain why a presence on Social Media is critical to your business. She will also provide useful examples and tips on ways to use Social Media to get the word out about your business and its products. Explore which social media channels might be most beneficial for you and which Social Media techniques and tools will help connect your business with a larger audience. In addition to this excellent training, we all have awesome snacks on hand!
