Gone are the days when butchers relied on local word of mouth and newspaper advertising as the only sources of foot traffic.
In fact, gone is the foot traffic. Today’s savvy butcher and local business rely on the internet to do the selling before the customer sets foot on the premises.
If you don’t have a good online presence your business will suffer. This is a fact. Millennials and younger conscientious food buyers check with Google, Facebook, Yelp, and even Instagram and Pinterest to find out where the best products and services are to be found.
The butcher, meat market, artisan food store, or organic meat delivery service that doesn’t have a modern, easy to use website, stellar social media presence, and five-star ratings across review sites will lose out to the website that does.

What are they doing right? What sets them apart from the competition and why are they making a lot of money doing what butchers have done forever?
The answer is that they understand new media. They know their customers and they move with the times. Their customers are changing and the new buyers of quality meats use the internet, mobile phones, social media, and chat to make decisions, buy products, and communicate their discoveries to their friends.
