Selling products online, selling from your own retail stores, selling to distributors, selling to wholesalers, Facebook marketing, link building strategies can all get very confusing and challenging for the food entrepreneur.
According to Andy LaPointe, Director of Marketing with Traverse Bay Farms/Fruit Advantage, “Gourmet food businesses not only have the challenge of producing an excellent product, but they also have to get their product into the market. While these are the same challenges that face any business, the food entrepreneur is held to a higher standard. What I mean is, if you buy a shirt that may have flaw in the stitching you can still wear the shirt. However, if you buy a food product and the product tastes terrible, the consumer will simply throw away your product even if the entire jar remains.”
Mr. LaPointe continued, “Having this extra layer on top of have to market your products online, offline, through distributors and more places a lot of pressure on food entrepreneurs. My new course entitled Omni-Channel Marketing for Gourmet Food Businesses helps food entrepreneurs to create a step-by-step marketing strategy with ease so they can spend their time focusing on recipe creation and tasting profiles.
