This special connection is also important to myAGRAR: the online shop for farmers is operated by AgrarOnline GmbH, which has its headquarters in Ratzeburg, Schleswig-Holstein, and is part of the tradition-steeped ATR Landhandel group. With traditional sales methods, ATR Landhandel has shaped agricultural trade in Northern and Eastern Germany as well as in Denmark and Poland for around 100 years. myAGRAR, however, has also been part of the group since 2017, reaching its target group with future-oriented e-commerce and enabling customers to order not only high-quality seeds, but also animal feed, fertilisers and agricultural technology 24/7. This means that today’s farmers can benefit from the same advantages in their everyday working lives that they have long been used to in their private lives.
»Can you see me?«, »Do we want to start?«, »I will share my screen, ok?« – this is more or less how most online meetings start. Technological hurdles – okay. Digital divide – that is fine, too. But starting an online meeting right away, just like that?

Live stream shopping – the »new« big thing on various social media platforms. These days, it is becoming increasingly difficult to go to the fashion shop around the corner or to the local consumer electronics retailer. Nevertheless, customers do not want to miss out on the first-hand live experience.
This is where live stream shopping comes into play. However, the question is: how can brands and companies jump on the bandwagon and create a first-class customer experience that resembles an in-store visit as closely as possible and boosts sales? We take a closer look in today’s reading tips of the week.
The GDPR legally obliges operators of digital platforms to clearly inform users about the storage and use of personal data. In May 2020, a ruling by the German Federal Court of Justice added an additional article to the regulation, stating that users must not only be informed about the use of personal data, but must also actively consent to it.
However, many companies are unsure whether they even comply with the currently applicable regulations and how they can do so. Simply put, online retailers have two options to respond to the legal changes: use a consent management tool or switch to cookie-free methods.
Today, it is no longer enough to simply present products and sell them. Instead, customers expect interesting, high-quality content. Content management systems (CMS) can help with this. They are useful tools to easily and consistently create and manage content (texts, images, videos) for shop pages, social media channels or blogs. These systems can be used to manage content more productively, quickly and flexibly.
The big advantage is that CMS users do not need extensive programming knowledge to be able to put substantial content on homepages. There is a wide range of content management systems, which makes it difficult for many companies to find the right provider. Things get even more difficult when an existing CMS has to be changed. In today’s reading tips of the week, you can find out more about the possible reasons behind this, suitable systems and the best way to proceed.
Google. The most popular search engine is constantly trying to improve its search results for users, for example with regular Google updates. It wants Internet users to be able to get information quickly and to have an overall positive experience on websites. That is why Google supports admins and content creators in improving their websites.
With the Core Web Vitals, Google has initiated such a measure to improve web content: uniform metrics for clear statements about the technical quality of a website. Those who run a website themselves and do not want to drop down in Google’s SERPs should make the Core Web Vitals part of their future SEO strategy.
