Alpaca Home's focus is the authorship of marketing materials aimed to give alpaca farms of all sizes unique tools to reinforce their presence in their hometowns and to promote the "ownership lifestyle change".

Alpaca Home began as a part time, retail apparel business. For the first few years our biggest sales came from being vendors at local, Ohio shows during the holiday season.
Eventually, I saw a need for some different items in the industry and proceeded to write several marketing handouts (see left). The goal was to offer farms affordable handouts that both entertained and instructed the reader as well as put something in their hands that they were less likely to throw out quickly; thus extending the farms presence before the buying public.
In my opinion, the need for personalized marketing and eye-catching gifts is essential to drawing in visitors and maintaining relationships and repeat customers long enough to generate successful sales of either alpacas or apparel.
Look for some exciting new lines to appear in 2012! And, always, thank you for your patronage.
