Some Valenines Day Online Flowers Shopping Tips

Valentine’s Day is almost upon us.  As a florist, and those of you who have stood in line at the flower shop on Valentine’s Day, we know that this is one of the biggest shopping days of the year for the retail flower business.  It is also one of the biggest weeks for ordering flowers online, with the exception of Mother’s Day week.

If you have been reading our blog for a while, you have definitely seen some of the potential pitfalls that you can encounter when ordering flowers online.  In this changing economy, as a Real Local Florist, we feel that it’s our duty to educate the public a little on how to get the best bang for your buck on Valentine’s Day!

There are a few key things that you can watch out for this week when you are considering your flower purchase online:

1.  What kind of product or message do you want to send?
2.  Who am I really dealing with for my online purchase?
3.  Am I really getting value for what I am sending by using an Order Gatherer, like FTD or Teleflora.
