You posted some great tips here.
I really like the idea of having pictures of products in use. It makes total sense, but I wonder how many people actually do it. I think it can be too easy just to use the regular photo instead of one in use.
Also, pinning your own blog posts is a good idea, but people need to use interesting photos otherwise people won't bother with it.

Oh man the things we say to our dogs that would be creepy is pretty funny. I had a good chuckle at the last one in regards to bathroom etiquette.

@RebeccaTodd I can't believe that he knew all the words that he was going to say. That's pretty impressive.

I know one new farmer who uses his email list to sell extra chickens from his CSA.
Another great example is informing your customers of what you will have at your farmers market booth.
That's what comes to mind at least.
Lead magnets are great. Not sure what would be good for a farm website. Recipe? Guide to x ? Tools that you use on your website?

Great job on the podcast. It isn't easy at all to get started with something like that. I did one for a bit on another website then stopped because it wasn't focused enough at the time.
Keep up the great work. You rock
Here a couple comments:
I like how clean your website is. It's not overcrowded with tons of stuff. However, the double navigation bars are a bit odd, but that is just me.
Also, I am curious as to why you don't promote your email list a bit more? As a follow up question, what are your thoughts on farm websites using email lists.

The highway singalong is just one of those feel good videos. Put a smile on my face this morning.
Also, I'm glad I don't have kids so they can't overflow the toilet. :P
@ginidietrich @IpjRobson I think it would be awesome if companies did it.
It would allow people to be more creative with their commercials. It would be nice to be entertained instead of "buy this now"

@BillSmith3 @ginidietrich @IpjRobson Yeah in Canada we don't get too much funny stuff.
Reddit definitely has its own type of culture going on. It can be harsh if you're not used it.
I think I was slightly desensitized to it because I played a lot video games in the past.
At least that's what I think.

Oh man my gf laughed so hard when she saw the poopuri ad.
It's definitely an innovative way of promoting the product. I wonder if other companies could take a comical approach to their business.

Love the points you made here.
It always surprises me how neglected about pages are. I am sure mine has been a bit too.
I'm a big fan of using videos on about pages. It can help people get to know you even better. Also, it adds that be human quality you mentioned.

One thing that I have always thought bout is being the connector.
As you mentioned, be the bridge between two people who are looking for something similar. If you can connect two people together and they find value in that connection, they will always remember you for being the person who connected them.

@@corinamanea @IpjRobsonThanks for pointing that one out to me. Jay Baer actually talked at a farming confenrence not too long ago. If memory serves me right

@@corinamanea @IpjRobson @ginidietrich
In agriculture it starting to happen with the younger generations taking over farms and what not.
It's a slow process.
While farming will never die because that would just be bad for everyone, it may not progress like other industries in the same way.
@ginidietrich @IpjRobson Unfortunately, that seems to be the mentality. I can't say that I agree with it, but it is rather difficult to change someone's mind when they are set in their ways.
There's always hope though.
I completely agree with this, "That said, many organizations aren’t yet taking advantage of what the web has to offer them for business growth..."
Many farmers don't take full advantage of the web. They could help educate so many people.
They could increase their business as well.
However, many don't take full advantage of the potential, which constantly surprises me.
Remember to always keep the fires burning with Waldow Social because then you know you will always have something you built ready for you.
Good luck and have fun. I look forward to hearing more about how your job at Marketo is going when you start.
