Ep 54: Fear Based Marketing!

January 14, 2022

Fear Based Marketing... a technique used that is often low in facts and high in emotion and false perceptions to gain trust.  The Farm Babe, Michelle Miller, joins me to talk about how fear based marketing has perpetuated an anti-agriculture movement across our country and has also created conflict within our own industry by pitting producers against each other.
