Daily Deals

I received an email from a colleague telling me about this new online marketing websiste.  I don't know much about it but wanted to pass it along anyway.  (debi kelly)

We have gotten many, many requests like: “The frost is coming and I have 30 bushel of peppers I have to sell right now!” or “My husband apparently can’t tell the difference between spinach and arugula because he just harvested the wrong crop. Know anyone who will buy 1,500 lbs of spinach?”  Because of this, we are starting the “Daily Deals” email.

What is “Daily Deals”?
Daily Deals is a weekly, soon to be daily, email featuring any “deals” farmers would like to get bids on. This email will be sent to the grocery stores and restaurants who have requested it. There are separate Daily Deal emails depending on the buyer’s location.

How It Works
1. Contact us with your deal. Reach us by phone 608-554-4800 or email.
2. Receive offers from buyers through email or the phone.
3. You decide which offers to accept. Arrangements are made directly with buyers.

Deal Details
· Product can be offered up to 2 weeks. We expect products to be sold (or never to be sold) by the end of that time. Product does not have to be ready now (if you know the product will be ready in September, better to make the offer now instead of last minute).
· Deals can be viewed anytime online.
· Any deal can only be featured only once.
· There are separate Daily Deal emails for locations.
· It’s free. Daily Deals is just an email with information. The rest is up to you.

Who is sending the Daily Deals email?
Local Dirt is a project funded by the National Science Foundation, a federal agency created to “advance the national health, prosperity and welfare”.
