How does your Commercial Consulting program work?
Brock Associates has been helping processors and other agribusinesses deliver on shareholder expectations of profitability performance for more than 30 years by developing purchasing strategies specific for their situation. In addition to regular communication, your Brock Associates consultant will meet up to twice a year with company staff to discuss strategies and provide a price outlook. Your dedicated third-party marketing expert will help your business maximize price opportunities.
How do I know which consultant to use as my personal consultant?
While each Brock Associates consultant listens to his clients, takes the time necessary to understand individual needs and goals and acts with integrity, you will be paired with a Brock Associates consultant that we believe will be a “best match” for you and your situation. This person then becomes your unofficial business partner dedicated to your marketing success.
How frequently will my consultant communicate with me?
Your Brock consultant wants the strongest possible relationship with you, and two-way communication is an integral part of that relationship. As such your consultant will communicate with you on a regular basis and will be readily available when you want or need to talk. Communication can vary from a brief or a long phone call to a text message, an email or a 35- to 45-minute Market Edge presention that covers the latest USDA report and Brock Associates’ insight regarding that report. You determine the amount and frequency of communication—rest assured that your consultant is your marketing partner and cares about your marketing success.
What can a commodity marketing consultant do for me that I can’t do for myself?
The buying/selling/trading of corn, soybeans, wheat, cotton, rice and other commodities has become a specialized profession amidst extreme volatility. Additionally, many businesses lack the people and/or the time to devote to marketing to achieve the returns necessary in today’s financial environment. A Brock Associates consultant can fill in that need.
