Leveraging Inclusity to Improve Sales

Farmers, like people in other occupations and communities, often work through the relationships they have and the institutions they know. In this conversation, we’ll get a chance to explore how you might expand beyond your traditional customer base. We’ll take a look at who your customers are now, and who they could be. We’ll talk through creative strategies for reaching those people, and what barriers you might need to navigate. This course will be interactive and practical.
