What's in your marketing plan?
Do you offer
mini horses/ponies for sale? have tack for sale?
How do you drive visitors to your Website?
Do you have a Website?
If you are serious about your equine business you will
eventually need a way to market your horses for sale. If this applies to
you then I'm sure you have a Website to represent your farm/ranch/business,
most importantly you keep the information on your
Your Website will speak volumes about your
business, it does not have to be fancy or expensive but it does need to
be current. Without current information and photos you are better served
advertising only your business card and have a sales list with photos
ready to send to people who inquire.
It's actually better to have no website at all
than to have one that makes your business look bad.
When you are looking to buy horses what impresses you? The
Website that says "Look at us, we take our equine business seriously, our
horses are presented clean and fit and our information on them is complete and current!"
or,, "Look at us, we're on c-list or have a photo
gallery we sell from... I surfed around mid Summer 2016 and found Websites with these
old announcements: "presenting our 2009 (and earlier) line-up!" and
2011 and 2012 foals arriving now :o( On the sales page
I saw many horses for sale that are now
2 and 3 years old ( and up ) but listed as unnamed and selling registration pending....
One of the hot topics the last few years is "when will the market pick back up".
Look no further than your own marketing plan!
A good well conformed, and well presented horse will still bring a good
price today -
A well run equine business will still command a good price
for it's stock.
Driving people to YOUR personal space to view what you have for sale is
paramount in this industry.
So..what is in your marketing plan?
