Our featured CloseBy® Text Marketing customer for October is Vermilion Farm Market located in Vermilion, OH! Vermilion Farm Market became a CloseBy® Text Marketing customer in September of 2013 and has grown its program to 1,814 members since then. We spoke with Store Manager Cara to hear how she has gained text program members that have helped grow the business.

Vermilion Farm Market has grown its CloseBy® Text Marketing program by utilizing the custom promotional materials that are included with the purchase of any CloseBy® program. Cara says, “The signs are at every single register and other highly visible spots throughout the store. We also put the text program in our ad that goes out weekly.” CloseBy® Text Marketing promotional flyers and tents are an easy way for customers to engage with and easily sign up for the program. Cara shared some customer feedback on the text program with us, “We send a weekly text with a link to our ad in it. Our customers appreciate that they can get our weekly ad sent to them directly to their phones.”

We asked Cara what the text program has done for Vermilion Farm Market. She says, “We are a small business that is constantly going against the Walmarts and Meijers of the world. The text program helps us to stay a lot more competitive with our marketing and sending texts to help us stay on top of mind. It helps us stay relevant and have customers choose us over the competition.” Business owners have a lot on their plate, which is why our CloseBy® Account Managers reach out often to help business owners utilize their program to the fullest. Cara loves that her Text Account Manager, Morgan, calls weekly to help her send text messages to customers. This call helps Cara to set aside a few minutes a week to send out text messages to her loyal customers. We are excited to highlight Vermilion Farm Market this month and look forward to seeing their continued growth!
