Selling Your Services as a Florist
What are your clients biggest objections? What is your sales conversion rate?
Before Having a Growth Mindset
Leads were never qualified
No questionnaire to get to know the client
Conducting all in-person consultations (time consuming!)
No confidence in pricing
Did not offer the sale
Hours to days to create proposals
No incentives for clients to purchase
No follow up system
Booking rate was 50% (and lots were not the right type of client)
Remember: Quantity vs. Quality
Qualify leads. Are they the right client for your business?
Know my market/client by creating a Know, Like, Trust factor
Talk less, listen more
Focus on value NOT price
Send estimates quickly - that day or the very next day.
Booking rate is 75%
Quality vs. Quantity
It All Starts with Mindset
Understand your WHY. Hold tight to why you started your business.
Think about helping others vs. Selling to others.
Have the Intention of serving, not selling
Create trust and connection
Don’t chase prospects. Beware of following up too much.
Be confident in your value and skills
Have Growth Mindset
My Selling Process
Have valuable conversations
Get your clients to know you, like you and trust you!
Send a thank you email after you connect with them. Make it personal and share things about yourself to create a connection. Include a brochure of your work, your social media and any other information you want to share. You can also send them a questionnaire. This way you can find out their needs, wants, likes and dislikes. Once you are moving forward with them, invite them for a quick chat on the phone to break the ice and get to know them. Utilize email marketing to your advantage.
Get to know them through a conversation
Once again, listen more, talk less
