My Digital Farmer | Marketing Strategies for Farmers

Apr 10, 2024

Every one of your farm products has a conversion rate.

The question is: do you know what it is?

I used to scream and rail and raise my fists to the heavens in frustration, when I couldn't get more people to buy my CSA box. What was wrong with me? Maybe nothing...

It just has a lower conversion rate.

Today, I want to introduce you to the concept of the conversion rate, and I want you to start TRACKING what they are for your most popular (and signature) products.

How can we get our conversion rates to go higher?
