Following on from our Local Florist vs online box companies comparison video (below the Valentine's one
if you haven't seen it yet) we have had another video made to help promote Local Florists. The video below tells
the story of how Jonny wins the girl by getting his Valentine flowers from a local florist while his rival Jack gets
his from an online box company.
Please feel free to use this video however you can take advantage of it. We would like this to
have as wide coverage as possible. You can share it on Facebook by going to The Paper Studio page and sharing it, and
encouraging all your friends and customers to share it too. The more widely we can get the message out that what you
get from an online box company is inferior to what you get from a local florist the better! You can also download the
video from our You Tube channel (the link is: https://youtu.be/ikyAjGgwgkI)
Personalise the video with your shop
details at the end
We will also personalise a unique version for you by
putting your details at the end so that when it is shared people know which local florist to come to for their flowers.
This is the best way to get YOU more business. There is a minimal charge of £14 for this if you are a current
customer or £19 if you are not (yet!). Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what you want on there. Easy!
Comparison of what you get from a local Florist vs an Online company
Many of you
will by now have seen the original video I did comparing one of the best known online flower delivery providers with a local
florist in Essex. Here is a preview of a more comprehensive unboxing and comparison video we've produced. It compares
7 of the biggest online companies with what was produced by 3 local florists here in Weston-super-Mare; an Interflora member,
an Eflorist member and a Direct2florist member. We spent £30 with each (although some of the online companies did not
have a product for exactly £30 so we took the nearest to that price). No-one was told it was a test to ensure fairness
of comparison. So well done all the local florists because what you produced was, in my opinion, much superior to that provided
by the online companies in a box via a delivery company. This video was produced solely to show florists how big the opportunity
is to get business back from the online companies. It is not for general release to the public. My company, The Paper Studio,
last weekend got a professional film-maker to produce 2 videos, one for Valentine's and another for Mother's Day.
These are designed for you to use on your own Facebook page and website. They are currently being editted and prepared for
release. We intend to offer you the opportunity to have your own business's details at the end of the video so people
know where to come when they've been persuaded to buy from a local florist rather than go online!
