Local Flower Shop Vs Florist Online

[ad_1]

With almost every home having a computer and the convenience of the internet, it has made buying and getting flower arrangements delivered to friends and family so much easier and less time consuming than ever before. Is this actually all correct information or is the public being fooled?

It appears that now-a-days Florist shops are fighting to keep businesses alive, mostly because internet companies are pretending to be local live flower shops. While these internet florists have the revenue to pay internet sites to increase their ratings as “local florists”, the actual local Florist is pushed down lower on the search engine receiving less business. The majority of people don’t even know they’re not talking to a local Florist and are fooled from the beginning.

In reality this is costing the local Florists tons of business and essentially putting some out of business. The “middle man” flower shop individuals are ordering from creates several problems with ordering issues and even delivery issues. Most cases the customer is paying much more money than what the “filling local florist” is receiving because of unnecessary fees the customer is paying.

In order to battle this issue with trying to cut out and be aware of who the middle man is, there are a few things to look at.

First, when you go to the florists website make sure you see that they have local information (such as phone number and address located where the flowers are being sent).

Make sure the site has information about their shop, such as a section of the site that shows who they are and about the local flower shop. All local shops will have sections on their site that explains their business in more detail.

Check on the Flower Shops site for a ‘Facebook’ link or ‘blog’. This is a way to see the shops individual photographs and also the information from customers who have used them in the past.

Another good way to see if a business is local and accredited is to research a major search engine for the shops name and city. See if they have reviews from previous customers and what they say.

If you decide to call the local flower shop, you can find they probably have more than just flowers. They may have fun and corky gifts as well. That can be fun to send with the arrangements that you have chosen. Also, when talking to the designer personally, you can usually get a better idea of what exactly will be sent (since not always will the flowers you choose be in stock).

If you want to send out a flower arrangement and are out of the area, it is always a better idea to deal with a live and local flower shop. When dealing with a personal florist, most of the time you can talk to the designer creating your arrangement. You receive more for the money that you spend and you can create a relationship with a local business for future transactions.

With all his information, the next time you decide to order flowers to a loved one, try to find a true local flower shop. If you plan on going to visit the person you are sending flower to, stop by the local florist shops location and introduce yourself. Everyone likes to see a face to a voice and name.

If you are having a hard time finding a local florist, go directly to Google. Type in the City, State and “local florist” in the search box. After the paid advertisements you will find a list of florist shops that have A, B, C etc in front of them. Along the right side of your monitor you will find a map that corresponds to where those flower shops are located. Those are local florists.
