We introduced Charlotte Smith’s new podcast back in June. Today, we want to share one of her latest episodes because it answers many of the questions farmers have about how to find customers and get the word out about their products. Enjoy!

The social landscape of Facebook and Instagram have drastically changed in the past several years and “things aren’t what they used to be.”

The days of posting on social media and actually having all your friends see it are long gone. Today, you’re lucky if 6 or 7 friends see a post.

With all the changes occurring on social media, you may be getting frustrated, wondering where to put your time and attention. Facebook? Instagram? Email? Blogging?

I’ve got some answers for you. In this episode of the Profitable Mindset Podcast, we’ll talk about what you can do and where you should be focusing your time when it comes to marketing. I also set you up with a free step-by-step video course on setting up your farm’s website and a worksheet on how to retain and attract new customers with blogging.

Yes, social media has its place in marketing, but when it comes to selling and making money, Facebook and Instagram are the last place you want to go.

Find out why, and what you can do to find and connect with your customers.
