In this training, participants consisting of members of the Family Welfare Empowerment (PKK) and Azzaidah recitation received information related to digital marketing and were provided with information on interesting products that could be sold, such as ornamental chili varieties.
“This training aims to increase the income of the residents of Buduan Suboh village through urban farming activities. We introduced them to ornamental chili varieties as a result of research by IPB University lecturers. In addition, we want to increase the marketing of products sold by farmers in Buduan Village through digital marketing technology," said Dr Doni.
According to him, with this digital marketing training, it is hoped that farmers can be more familiar with trends or methods of selling and marketing products that are more attractive and follow the times. So that the resulting product can be known by the wider community.
"With wider promotions and attractive advertising packaging, it is hoped that sales will increase so that the income of Buduan Suboh villagers will also increase," he said. (**/Zul) IAAS/STR
