Data from The Society of American Florists indicates that the number of locally owned and operated flower shops in the United States continues to decline at an alarming rate. This downward trend has been going on for years. Industry leaders and flower shop owners have all shared opinions and feelings about what they feel are the root causes. In our estimation, there are likely many factors that are truly to blame. One red flag that stands out to us is, we see far too many local flower shops who don’t know how to effectively generate sales leads for their organizations. Relying too heavily on wire-in order volume could potentially be a formula for disaster, if you haven’t laid the proper ground work to win with that business model. Our advice. Learn how to generate your own sales leads.
