ZimmNews – May 23, 2014

Hello ZimmComm Fans:
What if you held a Symposium for about 2,000 of your friends from all over the world and they all showed up? It would be days of education, fun and fellowship. And that’s what happened again this year at the 30th Alltech Symposium in Lexington, KY. Chuck covered it all. It is his 10th trip to the world class customer education event and he took a lot of photos and still has stories to post. A new addition to the schedule this year was the Alltech Craft Brews & Food Fest. He made it there in time to get a ZimmGlass look at the activity.
Last week our ZimmPoll asked the question, “What is the best way to market to millennials? “ Over half of our respondents said “Online.” Good choice. Other more traditional channels got mentions with radio, tv and other showing the next highest. Now we could delve into all the online choices next but there are too many to list!
New Holland is our longtime ZimmPoll sponsor and this week we’ve dedicated our new question to last month’s launch of MyNewHolland.com It is online destination for all things New Holland and open to all farmers. Current features include the ability to create an inventory of your equipment, a section on Precision Land Management, a Configurator tool to let you design your own configuration of new equipment you’d like to order, a topical discussion on ethanol which you are invited to read and comment on and more. More features will be rolled out in the future as the community grows.
We’re seeking your input on this new global New Holland project. It started first in Europe and was just launched for North America on April 22. So let’s get to it, “What features of MyNewHolland.com do you like?”
Feel free to take the poll or even email Chuck with your thoughts.
