It’s hard to reach the Amish. Most of the technologies that marketers use to reach their audiences – TV, Radio, Internet, Phones, etc – are not a part of Amish life. So, what’s the best way to get your product or service in front of the Amish? That’s easy – advertise in Just Plain Values and get your ad in nearly every Amish household in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Michigan! We do this the old fashioned way – through the mail! We have spent considerable time and energy cultivating a comprehensive mailing list of over 30,000 (and growing!) Amish households.
The Amish selectively use technology – and what technology they are permitted to use varies from community to community. However, they are still consumers of many goods and services from the “outside” world. Because the Amish live off the grid, they make use of battery and solar powered items, and will often use a generator for work. Health products, financial services, and farm equipment/tools are also popular. See the list below for more details.
