The Amish Marketplace
The Amish are suddenly hitting the radars of businesses everywhere. They are one of the fastest-growing people groups in the U.S. today. Right now, there are approximately 350,000 Amish folks, and smart businesses realize the massive potential this burgeoning market holds. Since you’re reading this, you are probably one of the more insightful leaders in your industry.
What makes the Amish market such a desirable nut to crack is their wealth. Entrepreneurship runs deep and wide. According to our own research, 53% of households own a business, and according to Erik Wesner from Amish America, the success rate is a phenomenal 95%. If you’re at all familiar with the Amish lifestyle, you know how simple a life they live—no TVs, radios, computers, smartphones, or Internet. This means the only marketing that reaches the eyes of the Amish is exclusively print.
