Social Media in Irish Farmers Magazine

Farming in the global village – SocialMedia.ie in Irish Farmers Monthly Magazine

Conor Lynch from SocialMedia.ie is delighted to be featured in Irish Farmers Monthly Magazine this month. The article where Conor talks about the opportunities on social media for farmers is below.

According to the book Future of Farming, social media can be a trigger for farmers worldwide. In the US, 76 per cent of farmers between the ages of 18 and 35 use social media to share knowledge, connect with consumers and promote their business. It is not a matter of whether social media can be of added value to the agricultural sector, but how.

Social Media Marketing offers a new and inexpensive way for farmers to get their name out there. But with so many social networks to choose from, farmers have to make sure they are using the right platforms in the right way. They need to know how, and where, best to reach and engage their audience, in the most cost-effective way possible.

SocialMedia.ie is passionate about helping organisations, SMEs, startups, government agencies and individuals create their digital destiny.

Let’s talk and see if you would like us to be ‘Your Digital Business Partner’. We’d be delighted to talk to you!
