Where to find horticulturists in order to convert them to customers

The idea that helps Horticulturists

Horticulturists want to identify optimal growing conditions for plants. However, they can't get it because they struggle with determining the right balance of water, light, and nutrients.

Therefore, they need to use your solution, e.g. GrowWise.

Plant Growth Optimization Software : GrowWise is a smart software tool that analyzes environmental factors, plant characteristics, and historical data to recommend optimal growing conditions for horticulturists. It helps them achieve better plant growth and yields. Of course it is much better than the stuff from HortiPlanner, or GrowBuddy!

How to find Horticulturists

You can get insights about the pain points of horticulturists if you listen to them carefully, either in person or online. Listening online is much easier because you need not ask them for a customer interview but you can observe them talking about their problems, out there in their natural habitat. They won’t even notice that you are there, watching and listening to them.

The process, step by step

One process that we can totally recommend is this:

  • Find out where horticulturists hang out (Reddit, Mastodon, etc.)
  • Read what problems they talk about, and how urgent they are to them. (Did they try any solutions, yet? Did they spend money on anything, yet? Did they even cobble a homegrown solution together?)
  • Enter the conversation: Help them with tips, ask more about their situation and why they are in pain.
  • If you find recurring questions or pet peeves of horticulturists, create some helpful content for them (e.g. a blog post, a podcast episode, or a video) and share it with them for free, in the same conversations. They will be delighted.
  • At the end of the blog post, invite them to use your solution: Plant Growth Optimization Software.

I described the process here in my blog post: Identify a hungry audience.
