That critical decision to invest resources into seeking sage marketing advice from an agency is an important move. For those in agriculture, there are several hurdles you must tackle when trying to grow your business. Nine to Five-ers are few and far between in this world, and the traditional structures of the B2B space are turned on their heads. When agriculture or life science companies struggle to quantify results and have a ton on their plate, an agency may seem like one more thing to juggle. Luckily, an ag-specialized agency will work to streamline your processes, reach (the right) growers and distributors, and do it all with tailored research to ensure you’re not shouting into the void.
Getting started with an agency is like establishing just about any other relationship: you want to start off on the right foot with a basis of trust, mutual respect, and shared goals. Find an agency that knows your field as well as you do. From tackling the tradeshow gauntlet with ease to nurturing the correct grower/distributor/retailer customer, here are a few ways an agency will get you growing in the right direction.
Stratagon was a proud recipient of a Regional Best of NAMA award for our kickoff campaign work with Cibus. The agency was recognized for our SU 2017 Canola Kickoff Campaign with Cibus and placed as a NAMA National Finalist in the Multi-Media Campaigns division.
This campaign, in particular, was uniquely positioned in that Stratagon and Cibus determined the most success would come from aligning ourselves with two separate target markets, identifying both canola retailers and target growers primarily located in North Dakota and Montana.
Through carefully curated individualized and eye-catching collateral, we positioned Cibus (a newer contender breaking into the canola seed market) as a trusted high-yield research and technology backed player.
