- Assist in the development of the brain
- Prevention of heart disease
- Lowering of cholesterol level in the body

#2. Be Social
You don’t have to be a guru when it comes to selling, but please be social.
Most of the salespeople you will see out there are not all good with selling. Trust me they are good at building relationships and audiences via social media.
If you can build a brand where your audience can easily interact with you and easily get words out of them, you can easily sell anything by presence or pitching.
#3. Helping People
Everything is not about money, try to render free services to them at times. Provide them with content that will solve their problems than watch them stay loyal to your brand.
#4. Leverage on Digital Marketing
You can make use of your Social media pages and groups to create content but do you know that there is more to Digital Marketing?
Implementing Digital Marketing into your business of snail meat selling will give you access to more audiences and those who are genuinely interested in what you are selling.
Making use of right hashtags on Instagram, ranking the right keywords on search engines, leveraging on Google Ad words, having the right email list combine with good content marketing will surely give you more sales online.
Getting more sales for Snail Meat in the Local Market
The difference between getting sales from the local market and the local market has no much difference, the difference between the two is from the use of Technology.
Getting more sales from the local market needs you to convince people, restaurant owners, and Hotels. You can make contracts with Hotels on supplying of certain amounts of snails meat in a week.
It all boils down to doing something different, packaging your snail’s meat differently, and staying consistent with your product.
Making millions from snail farming is not rocket science neither is it as simple as ABC, but trust me it is what you can achieve when you have proper knowledge of what snail farming and right Marketing skills.
