Beyond Cost Plus at the Florida State Florists Association

The 2014 Florida State Florists Association Annual Convention will include a Beyond Cost Plus session designed to help florist increase sales and profits.

Beyond Cost Plus at the Florida State Florists Association

This presentation will explore some of the advanced pricing strategies used by other retailers, strategies that go far beyond the traditional cost-plus model generally employed in the floral industry, and look at how these techniques can be employed by florists.

Like the session at the recent Great Lakes Floral Expo we'll start off looking at fixed-price products but this presentation will also include an approach for quoting weddings and events. Used properly this should help you secure more of the events you quote and make more money from them. This addition is being made at the request of some of the attendees at the GLFE session who asked about this topic during one-on-one conversations after the official presentation.

The FSFA Annual Convention is being held June 6-9 at the Bonaventure Resort & Spa in Weston Florida. The Beyond Cost Plus session is being presented by Mark Anderson of FloristWare.
