2021 BLACK FARMER NOMINATIONS: MARKETING & BRANDING MAKEOVER

NOMINATIONS OPEN JAN. 15, 2021: The award-winning marketing team of Black Farmers’ Network (BFN) wants to help promote, brand and market up to 3 innovative producers and their agribusinesses based in Georgia’s Black Belt Region. In an effort to advance the region’s Black farmers, BFN developed this experience so modern Black Belt farmers can compete in today’s digital economy. The network’s inaugural class of successful, marketed and branded agribusinesses is an opportunity to expand the ways in which Georgia Black farmers sustain their enterprises in the 21st century.

WHY WE CARE: Black Belt Region farmers are often unaware of the online resources available to build and sustain their agribusinesses. Black Belt farmers are often unskilled when using new Web technologies to launch and sell their products and services.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU: For an entire year, you will gain access to the pros and learn tips and tricks to build an unforgettable brand story, connect with new customers through email marketing and put brand awareness, development and positioning into practical use.
