Flower Shops Enjoying Astonishing Growth

Flower Delivery 300Flower Shop Growth Rates Off The Charts

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.

10678508_869043607941_482773389807749643_nWhile the floral industry continues it’s shake out, flower shops supported by Flyline Search Marketing continue to grow at astonishing rates! We routinely hear back from our flower shop owners that their growth rates far exceed those of other flower shop owners in the industry floral groups they participate in. Why are they doing so well you ask? The secret lies in the great vision and leadership of folks like Charles Carithers, Brad Levy and John Veldkamp.

These florists didn’t just hire a marketing vendor to do some work. Instead, they chose to treat us with great respect and to add us to their team as a strategic partner. They placed their unwavering belief in us that we could successfully drive positive change for their businesses. Then they gave us the latitude to do our job to the best of our ability. Some think we are far too quick in taking on the heavy burden of helping a flower shop to turn their fortunes around. Heck, where we come from, we call that opportunity! Who wouldn’t want the chance to partner with some of the greatest families in the flower business. It’s a once in a lifetime chance to help these families thrive, while at the same time giving us the chance to deliver stunning results and prove that we are the best marketing team in the floral industry.

0f0d452The florists we serve are truly some of the brightest and most innovative minds in the floral industry. Most of them prefer to leave the industry spotlight to others. The vast majority of them actually seem to favor maintaining an effective degree of anonymity. These folks are simply brilliant, tactically gifted, forward thinkers who are the some of the most successful people in their industry. Oh the truth be told, not everyone we have served falls into this category, although the vast majority have truly embraced the value of a strategic partnership with our firm. At the end of the day, we can honestly say that we put every ounce of energy we have into our service. To those who continue to put their faith in us, we are honored, thankful and truly blessed for the chance to serve you and your family. Thank you for allowing us to contribute to your success.

FloristsWhat Flyline Search Marketing ultimately brings to the table is an incredibly well thought out strategy, a comprehensive marketing approach, industry leading PPC platform designs, relentless drive, a competitive spirit and and dogged determination to drive success for those we serve.

New Website For Pete’s Plumbing

Home Page Employee PhotoPete’s Plumbing Inc.

New WordPress Website | Responsive Design | Robust Framework

We are nearing the completion of the brand new website for long time client, Pete’s Plumbing. They are a local, family owned plumbing company that we have truly grown to love. The owners are Rick and Julie Lippitt. If you haven’t met them, you are missing out. They are two pretty incredible people!

aboutuspageJulie runs Pete’s Plumbing and Rick runs their sister company, R. A. Lippitt & Sons. Julie and Rick also have several children and some of them work in the business with them. Pete’s Plumbing handles residential and commercial plumbing business in Alpharetta, Atlanta, Buford, Cumming, Dawsonville, Marietta, Roswell and other surrounding communities. They can fix anything from a leaky faucet to a main waterline problem. R. A. Lippitt operates with a focus on commercial plumbing business. Their primary customers tend to be Condominiums, Apartments, Colleges, Schools and large office complexes. R. A. Lippitt serves customers all over the southeastern United States.

Wordpress LogoThe new website we are creating for Pete’s Plumbing is built on a robust WordPress platform. The design is responsive in nature, meaning the website is actually able to detect the specific type of device that is trying to access it. Once it determines the device, the website adjusts it’s display to maximize the users experience on the site. For example, if  a person with a Samsung Galaxy S5 were to try and access the site, the website would serve up a full mobile version of the content to that user. If you have a smartphone, you may want to visit the site to see what we are talking about. On your smartphone, open a new browser, then key in the development URL we are using, which is (http://www.PetesPlumbingAtlanta.com), you will see how the site configures into a full mobile website. Then, assuming you have an Apple Ipad or a Microsoft tablet, run the same search. You will see how the site adjusts the display for the tablet device to look more like the full desktop version, with the exception that everything is sized perfectly to fit the screen dimensions of the tablet. Pretty cool technology for sure.

Pete’s Plumbing is a second generation plumbing firm. The company was started by Rick Lippitt’s father, some 40 years ago. They are an absolutely fabulous company. If you are looking for a high character, ethical and professional plumbing firm, we highly recommend Pete’s. They have handled all of our plumbing needs for the past six years and honestly, the price, quality of service and professionalism of the plumbing technicians has just been outstanding!

Pete’s Plumbing Offers Beautiful Faucets

[one_third last=”no” class=”” id=””]Faucet 225 C[/one_third]
[one_third last=”yes” class=”” id=””]Faucet 225[/one_third]

Water faucets come in all different styles, shapes, colors and sizes. Pete’s offers virtually all major brands, including favorites such as; Delta, Moen, Kohler, Price Pfister and American Standard. Their prices for faucets and installation are very reasonable and Pete’s does offer a full guarantee on all work they perform. Again, we have been using Julie and Rick for all our plumbing needs for the past six years and they and their folks have really taken great care of us.

Pete’s Plumbing Offers Gas & Electric Water Heaters

[one_third last=”no” class=”” id=””]A.O. Smith Vertex 50 Gallon[/one_third]
[one_third last=”yes” class=”” id=””]American 30 Gallon[/one_third]

Water Heaters are the mission critical to any home. There are lots of brands out there and Pete’s offers all the most popular. The biggest question in most homes though is what size water heater do you need? We encourage you to contact Pete’s and let them help you to determine the right size and type of unit to best fit the needs of your home. We have a three story home and Julie recommended that we go with a larger 50 gallon gas water heater. We had a 40 gallon that originally came with the home and honestly, there were times when we just ran out of hot water. So far, the 50 gallon unit is working well and even when we are running lots of laundry, we still seem to have plenty of hot water for showers, the dishwasher and other needs. We were actually tempted to try a new, more expensive tankless water heater system, but, Julie convinced us the 50 gallon gas unit would do the job. Glad we listened.

Pete’s Plumbing Offers Tankless & On-Demand Water Heaters

If you have never experienced a whirlpool or garden tub, you are missing out. There is nothing better after a hard day of working in the yard than to come in and soak in a luxurious whirlpool tub. All the aches and pains of the day seem to just melt away. There are tons of great styles and models out there so it’s easy to get lost in all the advertising and special offers. My vote is to ask someone like Pete’s, who installs and services garden tubs. Folks, like the Lippitt’s do this for a living and are most likely going to be able to give you the best advice on which type would be right for your home. I know one thing for sure. If our whirlpool tub breaks down, we are calling Pete’s Plumbing to come and fix it!

Jack completed a similar run in 2013. The original journey took him approximately 7 months and two weeks to complete. Very soon, Jack will begin his second journey #AcrossTheLand. This trip will include even more stops at Alzheimer’s facilities, nursing homes, senior care facilities and hospitals. Jack also hopes to stop in and visit with each of the Alzheimer Association offices that he meet with during his 2013 journey. He formed many friendships with the various staffs and volunteers who work in those offices and he forged a very strong bond with many of them.

Tybee IslandJack will be leaving from Tybee Island, Georgia on November 6th, with the intention of running all the way to Monterey, California. He will plans to stand in the Atlantic Ocean that morning and to finish his journey by standing in the Pacific Ocean 10 – 12 months from now. Jack is dedicating this run to raising awareness of Alzheimer’s Disease. He is also hoping that the run will help to generate donations and support for the Alzheimer’s Association, as they and the dedicated scientists working on Alheimer’s research, search for a cure.
