Our headquarters is in beautiful Nara Visa, N.M., but we have FMG staff members located across the country. We think this makes us unique, and ensures timely delivery of the images, videos, advertisements, websites, etc. we produce for your livestock operation. Our team is dedicated to customer service and will do anything to ensure you are happy with your completed FMG promotional product. All of the sales we photograph, are listed on our events calendar on our website (http://www.focusmarketinggroup.net/events.html). Additionally, photos and videos from these sales, and our design work is promoted on our social media outlets. With these complimentary services, your sales (and your operation) are exposed to more than 3,000 people every day.

Providing the best for our customers is the only option. As we like to say here at Focus Marketing,

“Our only FOCUS is you.”


Raising livestock is just like any other business, you always want to put your best foot forward. You wouldn’t trust an amateur to do your taxes, so why trust one to promote your stock?

More than anything, we want to see our customers’ businesses flourish.

“One of the best decisions I’ve ever made was to engage Focus as a marketing partner to redesign my website and take care of picturing and videoing sale cattle, not only were they professional and timely, the quality of the end product is second to none.” Jungels Shorthorns, Derek Jungels, Kathryn, N.D.


On Farm Photography “The FOCUS team has you covered from the picture pen to the banner at the backdrop. Taking images

that you can’t wait to have them design an ad for and get up on your website! Easy to schedule,

and get a hold of, and a work ethic that gets the job done on your tight timeline. It’s always a pleasure to work with the best.”

Coudron Charolais, Kim Coudron, Monticello, Minnesota

On Farm Photography Our photographers have been training for years. We know the “look” you want from your livestock. We will quickly evaluate your animals in the pen and work with you and your help to get that animal in the ideal location and stance. The photographer, the pen size, lighting and the people in the picture pen all determine the quality of your pictures. Let’s work together to ensure your animals are looking their best! We strive to capture genuine, quality images of your livestock to appeal to your audience. Contact us today to schedule a picture or video day for your online sale, production sale or private treaty bid-off, as well as your donor cow and promotional bull images.

When booking your sale and promotional photos with FMG, we aim to provide the best possible service, quality images and a stress-free day in the picture pen. You will also receive: • A pre-shoot client consultation to discuss the details of picture day • Professional and friendly service from your photographer • Photos/videos sent to the correct parties, including web designers and sale hosts • Storage of photos/videos for future use • Personalized and prompt service from the Focus Marketing Group team


Videography Videography When sound moving, structurally correct animals are important to your customers, a great video has the potential to stuff your pockets. Our field staff makes the video process easy, effectively capturing all angles and editing it into a quick, succinct and accurate representation of the animal. Please visit our YouTube channel to see examples of our work! Visit our website at www.focusmarketinggroup.net to link to our YouTube channel or simply scan this QR code to access from your smart phone. In this day and age, a lot of production sales are playing videos on large screens during the sale rather than bringing live cattle into the sale ring. Let FMG take the stress out of the set up and playing the videos during the sale. Contact us for a pricing. We also offer promotional video work — let us capture what your operations are all about! A field staff member can spend a couple days with you videoing the day to day operations at your farm or ranch and turn it into a informative video to play on your websites or at stock shows… all to promote your operation. Contact us for pricing.

“The purebred seedstock business is tough. As producers, we have invested years of hard work and dedicated

ourselves and our breeding programs to better the overall cattle industry. What a shame it is to have invested all that time and energy in making good cattle and not have them marketed appropriately. And let’s face it, time

management and time constraints are often the biggest obstacles to overcome. That’s where Focus Marketing Group

comes in. Whether you are checking Spring Borns in the North pasture, standing behind a donor in the breeding

barn, or clipping that anticipated last one beforethe trip to the NWSS, the staff at FMG is always working for you. FMG is an all-in-one marketing solution for us at Walter Cattle Company. The talented staff handles not only our photo and video needs, but our website design/updates and all of our social media aspects as well.

At Walter Cattle Company, the work force is very small. It has been such a relief to know that while I am busy

with feeding, breeding, planning, clipping, rinsing, and all the other aspects of this business, FMG has got my back. I have tried other individuals and companies that claim to have great service, but none of them come

close to the quality and professionalis that you find at FMG. Another bonus is that most, if not all, of the staff is greatly invested in the industry themselves, so they know what it takes to make it work, and they work hard

to make sure that your program is seen and represented in thebest light possible. All the staff is so easy to work with, and their knowledge and skill sets are invaluable.

We have had the good fortune to have been in this business for a number of years, and I can say without

reservation that FMG has made such a difference in our program. I am so thankful and blessed to have them as a part of my team!”

Walter Cattle Company, Kyle Walter & Family, Elk City, Oklahoma


Show Photography

“The Focus Marketing Team is willing to work with you no matter what your set-up may be. They were even

willing to go right to the pasture and picture calves in the pasture on their momma’s. They are also great to

work with at the picture backdrop when you are fortunate enough to make the banner backdrop. An all-around fun and get the job done group of folks to work with.”

Thomas Ranch, Troy, VeaBea & Cally Thomas, Harrold, South Dakota

Web Design Web Design Every marketing plan should include an online presence. One of the best ways to reach out to your customers is with a custom-designed website for your livestock operation. Our web design team strives to create websites that are both functional and visually pleasing. As always with FMG, we will work with you to assemble a website that will best suit your needs. Our friendly, personalized service is second-to-none. Pricing for a website includes a one-time design fee, determined by the number of pages you need. Also included in this price is a text-based logo, for use on the website only. If you are interested in a graphic logo, our design staff will be happy to create one for use in print advertising, apparel embroidery and other promotional items. After your website is designed, we then create a quarterly service contract that includes domain name registration, web hosting, as well as unlimited updates to text and photos on your site. Additionally, your website may include any number of email addresses, search engine optimization, web traffic reports and links to the livestock directories of your choice (such as www.showsteers.com or www.heifershop.com). Contact us for a free quote or to book your web design project. Visit our www.focusmarketinggroup.net to view all our websites.


Social Media Management Social Media Management Let’s work together to complete your marketing plan. Social media gives your customers and potential customers an inside look at what goes on at your farm or ranch. In today’s world, livestock operations must have a presence on social media – whether it is with a Facebook fan page, Twitter profile, Instagram account or a blog. We like to think of social media as the cherry on top of your marketing plan sundae. An active Facebook page or Twitter profile can ensure you distribute the correct information about upcoming sales, and can give you more exposure than print advertising or a website. It also makes your farm or ranch easily accessible to all generations. But, we know all managing these accounts takes time. Let us manage your social media efforts for a low quarterly fee. Facebook management includes – Page set-up, or revamp/organization or current page 4 posts per week Comment moderation New cover photo every quarter (designed by FMG) Instagram management includes – Page set-up, or revamp/organization or current account 4 posts per week Comment moderation Twitter management includes – Profile set-up, or revamp/organization of current profile 3 tweets/day, 7 days/week New cover photo every quarter (designed by FMG) Blog management includes – Page set-up, or revamp/organization of current blog 1 post per week Comment moderation

Whether it be taking pictures in the cold or

designing ads on tight timelines, the staff at Focus bends over backwards to get the job done

right. Focus is always worth the investment. Wienk Charolais, the Eschenbaum Family Lake Preston, South Dakota

When you are in the picture pen, you need someone that really knows the cattle business. The Focus team knows

cattle. And knows how to get the perfect shot or video. That is so important, because cattle do not always cooperate. Focus team members always work hard to satisfy their customers with their best work. It is always a pleasure to work with Kyla, Kent and their team.
