  • 10 Tips for Leveraging Social Media Surrounding a Big Event

    by Jessica Weber | Sep 26, 2017
    When big news hits your Industry or breed, are you prepared to leverage it? Last weekend at the historic Fort Worth Stockyards a Texas Longhorn bull, Cowboy Tuff Chex, sold for $165,000. While some speculated that he'd bring a half of a million dollars, this sale amount was still a big deal for Longhorn breeders across the nation. ABC News awarded the event national coverage and dozens of other local news sources also put out stories. But how do you, the general Longhorn (or any) breeder, who may not have a $165,000 bull or an $80,000 cow, leverage the national buzz and increase awareness of your breeding program? How could you try to increase your private treaty sales in conjunction with the popularity of the breed under topic? These 10 tips are aimed at helping you make the most of big news by using the social media platforms available to you in conjunction with your Hired Hand powered website.

  • Success Stories from Spring Sales: Keeping Your Momentum Going

    by Molly Clubb | May 27, 2014
    On April 25th we shared a blog about Making the Most Out of Sale Weekends. This is a follow up to that blog as well as a supplement to an article called "Making an Extra Marketing Effort" that appears in the June 2014 issue of the Texas Longhorn Journal. Please feel free to contact Molly with any questions, comments or suggestions for future posts. Once again this Spring, I was able to attend most of the Texas Longhorn consignment sales held throughout the nation, representing Hired Hand Website Software. It’s always so nice, after a long winter, to see some of the best samples of this beautiful breed of cattle in addition to all of the breeders who make our Industry so welcoming and successful. One of my favorite parts of the Spring Sale Season is seeing various breeders who have been striving to make a name for their programs for years, or maybe only months, get their break-through in the sale ring. I’m happy to share just a few of this Spring’s success stories in this article. It’s also nice to see that seemingly each of the Spring consignment sales have made a nice niche for themselves in the Industry. Serving various groups of breeders through the caliber of Longhorns the sale encourages; buyers the sale attracts; convenient location; co-hosting with a competition or another event; or the tradition of a good time and good prices is what can allow for a variety of breeders to see success during any given year and sale.
