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.   Must-Have Website Features for the Floral Industry New Bloom Solutions

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.
