Social Media.

What is it?

And, why use it in agriculture today?

Carroll, Iowa (AgPR), July 28, 2008 --Tune your phone lines to a special event this August 6th, as some of the ag industry's brightest social media minds converge in one jam packed tele-seminar. Hosted by, Aggie-Lance.com, founder Mark Jewel this seminar will feature Chuck Zimmerman from Agwired.com and Zimmcomm.biz, John Blue from Truffle Media, and Liza Markle from the National FFA Organization. The topic at hand: What is social media, and WHY do we need to be using it in the agriculture industry today? Expect to come away with a couple tangible ideas that you can apply straight away!

Social Media has grabbed hold of the marketing world – yet in traditional fashion, the Agriculture Industry is one of the last ones to catch on. It doesn't have to be this way! Are you prepared to bridge the generation gap by facing the facebook crowd? Did you know your business can benefit by using this online social media tool? There are more than 72 Million blogs on the internet, does my company really need one…and can it help our marketing? Now wait a second, that YouTube thing is just for kids right? And pod casting is only for people with iPods, if I am not mistaken. "Don't fool yourself; there is business value in just about every aspect of social media," says Mark Jewell of Aggie-Lance.com. "This tele-seminar will help people to better understand the world of social media."
