I cant believe I didn't think of this before.

Our business relies on the ability to sell to farmers. We are only a couple of years old and very open to new ideas.

So my question.....

What is the most effective way to sell to a farmer? and what is the most original way you have seen?

New machinery rep - drove through farmyard - made a list of all the equipment he could see - phoned up for an appointment and gave me a quote for wearing metal on cultivation equipment and other spares we might need for our tractors. I thought it was very effective and straight to the point.

Reply to feckin enquiry.
Re doing a cubicle shed this year and contacted 3 firms for prices on fixtures.
Not a dicky bird back.
Chased them up today, was promised call backs. Nothing:mad:.

I'm sure it's just agriculture that's like this as we are replacing the doors on the house as well.
Had people out, doors measured, new ones chosen and quotes given from 2 firms inside 48 hours.
