Branch Out Your Vermont Brand

A Guide to Growing Your Business with Social Media

Manchester, Vt. – The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets is partnering with Northshire Grows Inc. to provide professional development opportunities for farm and food businesses in southern Vermont. The interactive Social Media workshop, led by marketing expert Nicole Ravlin from People Making Good PublicRelations in Burlington, is open to farmers, producers and local food entrepreneurs on Wednesday, July 25, from 5-7PM at the Hildene Welcome Center in Manchester Village.

The free learning session will offer Vermont businesses and producers the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to better promote and market themselves and their products.

“Southern Vermont is filled with small businesses that are generating high-quality agricultural products. We hope our producers will take advantage of this opportunity to learn how to share their story and better market their products, so that they can continue to branch out and grow,” said Vermont Secretary of Agriculture, Food & Markets Anson Tebbetts.

The workshop will explain why a presence on Social Media is critical to business, provide useful examples and tips on ways to use Social Media to help connect Vermont businesses with a larger audience, explore the Social Media channels that might be most beneficial and address any concerns.
