With the increase of competition in the florist industry, it seems really hard to stand out in the crowd and have your customers be faithful; to you at all costs. So we are going to help you stand out by showing you ways on how to make profit with a shop.

  • You will have to charge for everything. No more “giving away free!” You need to add up everything in order to make profit, even the ones that your customers add to their bouquet saying to make it look a bit nicer. Even the glue and the form and the tape has to be charged. And keep in mind that time is money, so don’t give your time to someone for free. You’ll need to make the design cost according to your cost of living, supplier prices and more, not just based on the creativity and the work force.
    • Without going for your favorite wholesale supplier, shop around and research on other suppliers and their pricing. Check out standing orders to have the cost of the popular/ trending flowers North Shore cut down. You will notice that, you can price your work for a profitable amount once you know your prices on the floral beforehand. You may not know this, but wholesale dealers also gives out a good pricing for their good customers, so try to become one. Pay your bills on time, make sure to be loyal to them and keep them updated with feedbacks so they can become a good service provider.
      • Check out your wire service statements and the cost for the floral designs including the blooms, see if you are making a profit and if these orders are worth everything.
        • Yeah you own a flower shop, but it would be smart to have items like candles, home decorations, sweets and sold in your shop to add profit.

            • Another way is by the way you reach your customer. While customer care is a must to have your customers with you for a long period of time, you need to try things like upselling as well/ for example, if a customer buys a flower bouquet with a card for their lover, try asking them for anything else in a more of a suggestion manner like, “would you like a box of chocolate with that?”. This will give you a goof profit as well.
