Where do you sell your farm products? Updated on : March 26, 2017
Where do you sell your farm products?
At a nearby local market or to a wholesale dealer or direct retailing?
The amount of time & effort you spend in the marketing would be relatively as equal as you spend in growing your crops.
The logic in marketing is very simple – more the time you spend more the money you get.
If you attempt to sell your products on your own i.e., direct retailing, it consumes lot of time & effort. It also needs man power, storage & transportation facilities. And another important factor is you cannot get the returns on bulk on the same day of harvest. But if you wait, you can make more profit, cut off the middle man commissions and to an extend you can decide the price of your product.
On the other hand if you aim to get the returns on the same day of harvest and don’t want to take the risk of direct retailing which has the difficulties interms of man power, storage & transportation. Then the quick option available for you is – middle man, dealer, wholesale buyer & commission mandis. But no profit is guaranteed on this since those people fluctuate the price quite often and you may end up paying more commissions to them.
Is there a way to balance the these problems ?
Is there a way to do retailing/reach people without the worry of time & effort?
Is there a way to find potential buyers & dealers without compromising on the profit?
Yes, marketing/selling your product online will help you to balance time & profit.
But how? Imagine, banana which you have cultivated in 5 acres of your land is ready for harvest in another 1 month. You might be in the tension of selling it and make good profit. And more over you don’t have choice to store banana and wait for a good price.
Now if you post an advertisement about your product online, you will start getting enquires received from many people that too without the worry of you call the buyers/dealers. On seeing your ad, they would call you and approach you for the sale.
You can describe your product, negotiate with the buyer and make a good profit.
The moment you harvest your bananas would be sold with the profit which you expect. You need not to be in the tension of losing a buyer since the price is not convinced for him, you will always get leads from 100’s of potential buyer.
