You’re in the right place.
You’ve heard about Agency X. Maybe you’ve even dealt with them, and seen their work. Most likely, their approach is standardized, and they have never ventured into a barn.
These are marketers who take themselves a bit too seriously, and end up proposing generic strategies that are really not tailored to the world of agricultural and its market.
Think of it this way: they haul in tons of soil, spread around some seeds and wait to see what takes…which is usually nothing.
