Today, buying and selling flowers doesn’t just happen in brick-and-mortar stores. The majority of transactions take place online. Farmers, wholesalers, florists, and consumers alike use the internet to facilitate their floral needs. Whether it’s a wholesaler ordering hundreds of thousands of flowers from a grower, or a customer placing an order for a single red rose, websites have become a must in this day and age. Thus, certain website features are mandatory and should be embraced by everyone in the floral industry.

High-Quality Product Photos

Whether you’re a grower or retailer, high-quality photos are a must. The floral industry is inherently a visual one, and one of the reasons people buy flowers is their beauty. When buying products online, it’s essential to see exactly what is being purchased, making high-quality product photos critical. Services like Fleurography.com make this simple and affordable.

Google Reviews Integration

Social proof allows potential customers to see what a great experience past customers have had. Therefore, if you want your floral website to succeed, a Google Reviews integration is a must. Not only can potential customers find your website, but they can also see your success in the industry and reviews from happy and satisfied clients.

With over two decades of cross-segment experience, I've witnessed the flower industry's metamorphosis first hand. From the introduction of digital commerce, social media, and venture innovation—I have a clear understanding of the limitations, and the opportunities available to the stakeholders of our markets.

​The segments of our supply chains are strictly fragmented, in ways that can at times inhibit our own growth potential. For many outsiders coming in, 'disrupting' our long-standing processes seems almost too easy. However, New Bloom was founded on a firm belief that it is those that best understand each corner of this industry who will be most apt to transforming inefficiencies into innovation—and delivering long-term, sustainable growth.
