SALES AND MARKETING STRATEGY
We are well aware that most pig farming businesses fail to make substantial profits because of their inability to market their business and products. Bearing this in mind, we have been able to come up with several marketing strategies to promote our business and products.
They are as follows:
- We will start by introducing our business and products to everybody. Starting with our friends and extended family.
- We will list our pig farming business in yellow pages ads.
- We will make sure to advertise our business and products in food-related and agro-allied magazines, reputable newspapers, radio and television stations.
- We will make sure to always attend agriculture-related seminars, food expos, etc.
- We will also do well to encourage our loyal customers to spread the word out to others.
- We will create customer reward programs and promos to reward our loyal customers.
- We will make sure we leverage the online world in advertising our business and products.
One notable trend in the industry is that pig farmers no longer focus on rearing pig livestock alone but are finding it pleasurable to compliment the business with either crop cultivation or pig meat (pork) processing and packaging.
Also, even though pig raising had been in existence for long, the industry has in no way become oversaturated. There is still room for innovations and improvements. Technology has helped the industry in no small way as regards the packaging and preservation of the products.
Another trend is that, because of improvements in technology, it has become very easy for pig farmers to experiment with cross-breeding. Various species of pigs are cross-bred to produce new breeds.
Our target market encompasses all. Everybody needs pig products in one way or another. Livestock products such as pork, milk, skin which serves as leather for bags, belts, shoes, etc are from time to time consumed by the general populace.
