#RuralBloggers Supporting Rural Content and Small Businesses

With 2019 arriving very shortly, a new year always brings positive resolutions or working out solutions through challenges. Last autumn, Haynet launched it’s #RuralBloggers channel with the aim to highlight the fantastic bloggers and small businesses that work or write from the countryside. The hashtag is now being used and shared socially which is a great way to make sure your content is read and followed by a likewise audience.

Samantha Hobden from Haynet wants to work further with this channel and encourage rural bloggers and small businesses to engage with each other. She is particularly keen to mentor those who want to learn more about how social media and content marketing can reach clients or increase a following online, particularly within the countryside sector.

There are so many positive benefits of small businesses and bloggers writing content and sharing their knowledge particularly when life in the countryside can be tough. Samantha said “the countryside is a challenging place at the moment with many bloggers and small businesses having their passion for rural life coming under duress through social media. I feel so strongly in sharing their knowledge, wisdom and dedication for the countryside through their writing and content. It is vital that bloggers or businesses who are from the farming, country pursuits, horse riding or countryside sector are championed and supported. By sharing content through social media and keeping rural life alive, is very much my aim for 2019”.

Haynet is currently working with two #RuralBloggers channels through Twitter and Facebook. There are plans for an account on Instagram to work and promote the hashtag in the next few months. The Twitter channel is growing daily and many now are using the #RuralBloggers hashtag to share their content to a wide countryside audience.

Samantha plans to expand and work with the #RuralBloggers Facebook group to encourage and mentor bloggers and small businesses to encourage them to expand on their content, especially in written form to grow their following. Samantha explains “if you would like to learn more about engaging with your audience and increase your following, then this group is a great place to work with other rural bloggers and small businesses sharing tips and taking part in group challenges. I plan to have industry experts that can do live chats within the group, giving their invaluable advice, all with the aim in helping rural bloggers and small businesses raise their marketing content game!”

If you would like some encouragement and support when it comes to rural marketing, whether this is for personal blogging or a small business, then please come and join the #RuralBloggers Facebook Group.

Let’s champion and support life in the countryside in 2019 and make sure it continues to have solid roots in social media.
