The development of content in online marketing media causes online promotional materials to become more attractive, thus encouraging consumer buying interest. To manage resellers, it is necessary to design a reseller database so that it will make it easier for Hero Bakery to monitor reseller activity.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion - </strong>Hero Bakery needs to adopt this online promotional media well. Apart from that, efforts to increase the attractiveness of consumers (resellers) can be done by designing attractive and informative product packaging and labeling. Considering that Hero Bakery operates in the B2B market, resellers need to be managed well.</p> Audita Nuvriasari, Frisca Octavia, Aditya Sunny, Bayu Agung Widyanto, Galih Wibowo, Nandito Limor Copyright (c) 2024 IMPACTS: International Journal of Empowerment and Community Services Sun, 31 Mar 2024 00:00:00 +0700 Socialization of The Green Economy Concept to PKK Women’s Group Community at Moncongloe, Gowa, South Sulawesi, Indonesia <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Purpose ­ </strong>This community service aims to introduce the concept of green economy to the people of Moncongloe, Gowa, South Sulawesi, Indonesia.
