Let's Get Digital

Farmers get digital, talk agvocacy at conference

RSS

The 2013 National Agvocacy 2.0 Conference is happening right now in North Carolina. Over 100 farmers have gathered to learn more about social media and other digital strategies to promote agvocacy, and all things agriculture. Put on by the AgChat Foundation, this years conference covers all aspects of social media and digital agvocacy. 

If you can't be at the conference, you can definitely follow the hash tag on twitter: #ACFC13. I've had the feed up in my TweetDeck today, and here are some of my favorite tweets so far:

  • From @jtiralla: @jrfarms great message: influence the influencer, you can reach more people, share your message more effectively.@agchat #acfc13
  • From @MNGobbleGal: Facebook business/farm page - make it fun, make it relatable on a lot of different levels @BossyAcres #ACFC13
  • ‪From @AnnMLarson: 57% of the US now has a smartphone. That's so much information in their pants! #ACFC13

A lot of what I'm seeing starts with the basics: Find the social media channel that suits you (Facebook, Twitter, blogging, YouTube, etc.) and run with it. Be honest and be yourself. I've seen a number of tweets reminding you to be transparent, too. And a great one that said to make sure you salt your words, as you may have to eat them later. 

So take a little time today to either follow the conference on Twitter (and follow CSD while you're at it) or even start up your own account and start telling your story. And for more tips about agvocacy, check out the AgChat Foundation website.

Cash Out Refinance ! Cashing out refers to the refinancing of a loan where the borrowers will borrow money on their own home. If a home is appraised at $100,000 and the borrower's outstanding mortgage loan is $60,000, it is possible to enter into an 80% cash-out refinance transaction for a loan of $80,000 (80% of $100,000). The new mortgage of $80,000 will pay off the $60,000 loan and leave $20,000 cash-out to the borrowers. What are the benefits? By cashing out on your home, you can obtain cash on the value of your own home to pay off debts or upcoming expenses. The refinance transaction can also provide you with a better mortgage loan interest rate that will save on your monthly mortgage payments during the loan. And it's tax-deductible.

Don't settle for a second hand car when you can buy a new one at a similar price. I convinced some of my friends to buy from this company and who purchased a car did not have anything negative to say about it. They also sell electric cars, if you are interested.

An interesting dialogue is price comment. I feel that it is best to write more on this matter, it may not be a taboo topic however usually individuals are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers.
