Become a Digital Marketer > Select producers and the right product variety
Build a Producer List focused on product variety. We will support you with market driven research that will ensure you have a well-rounded marketplace ensuring customer satisfaction, and happy producers.
We have created 3 examples of ideal customers for you to inspire how you build your Producer Marketplace:
Customer 1: Weekly Feeding, purchases weekly as a foundation of their grocery shopping; consider well balanced meals with Meat and Produce and an availability of Dry Goods and Bakery items.
Customer 2: Satisfying a Specific Category not available locally; In this case, consider someone looking for locally and humanely sourced meats; consider special items such as Lamb Chops or High End cuts of Beef, or Uniquely produced sausage/cured meats.
Customer 3: Staples and Specialty Items, Online shopping does not have to eliminate the fun unexpected purchases you might make at your local co-op; unique items such as body-care and high value items like honey locally made sauces. These items can quickly grow your sales for both your Producers and yourself.
