Untapped Holidays Your Flower Shop Should Utilize!
The need to send flowers doesn't stop with the major holidays. Increase your sales by utilizing the untapped gift-giving holidays that occur through out the year.
With the rise of social media, it has never been easier to directly communication with all of your customers â€” present and future.
Plan ahead for upcoming holidays. If the upcoming holiday's main color is purple, be sure to have purple flowers, purple ribbon, or some sort of holiday accessory on hand.
Offer specials and promote these holidays as if they were the major floral holidays.
Show photos of holiday specific arrangements to spark your fans interest.
Suggest uses of holiday flowers on your social sites. "This beautiful purple, green, and yellow arrangement would be a perfect centerpiece for your Mardi Gras party!" The power of suggestion is a powerful thing!
Be versatile with your floral designs. Adjust the color pallet on your everyday designs to match the holiday. Add a ribbon or accessory to give it a more festive look!
Keep an eye out in your daily routines for unique containers, decorations, or other accessories you can use for designs.
Just because you don't celebrate a specific holiday, doesn't mean it isn't very important to someone else. If you are unsure about a holiday, do a little research to find out what types of arrangements or other gifts are appropriate.
