With this new scam, called “smishing,” scammers are trying to get you to send them your personal information that could help them access your bank account or other online profiles. “Smishing” scams are so named because they’re like a phishing email, except sent via SMS, the technology underlying the typical text message.
I find that text set up a good transition time for me as well - going from staging and loading and managing a busy enterprise, to moving to full time marketing for the next 3 hours.
We know you might need time to start building your list. Sign yourself up, build your list, and start to pay only once you are ready to start sending reminders to your Farm Fans.
People love being a part of something, like it was a special club - 'Yeah, I'm a Farm Fan' - they really bought into that.
The weekly reminder, from a practical perspective, made a huge difference for folks at our Wednesday afternoon market.
