Frequently Asked Questions
Flower shop SMS strategies don’t have to be complicated. By mastering a few simple features available
in TextMagic, you can create an unforgettable experience for your clients.
Here are a few ideas that will help you attract more customers to your SMS list:
Offer exclusive discounts and insider news to your subscribers.
Offer unique packaging or flower arrangements to subscribers.
Let people know that you can send automatic delivery updates if they subscribe to your mobile list.
Display your number with an exciting offer around your shop (posters, flyers, text, etc.).
Let people know about your SMS list on your website or social media accounts.
Organize monthly contests for mobile subscribers.
Let people know that you can remind them of important dates in the lives of their loved ones.
There are two types of special occasions that you need to consider: global holidays (e.g., Woman’s Day, Christmas, etc.) and events that are unique to each customer (e.g., birthday, anniversary, etc.).
Scheduled texts for global holidays are easy to set-up:
Step #2: Navigate to the Compose page. Write your message, add your preferred contact list in the recipient’s field, and set your sender ID in the “From” field. For more message ideas, please check out our florist SMS templates section below.
Step #3: Instead of sending your message immediately, click on schedule. We recommend sending this text at least 2-3 days before the actual holiday in order to have enough time to receive a response and prepare the bouquet.
Step #4: Schedule the message as recurring every year, and save your changes.
A great way to encourage reviews and return visits is to offer a loyalty discount, referral bonus, or special offer after delivery. A ‘thank you message’ can also do the trick.
You can make it easier for customers to review your flower shop (positively) by sending them feedback requests:
[Customer name], We hope [recipient name] loved the bouquet as much as we enjoyed making it.
Your opinion means a lot to us. Please rate your experience on a scale from 1 (bad) to 5 (excellent).
Depending on the customer’s response, you can follow-up with a short link towards your Google Listing or testimonial page, when the feedback is positive, or call back to request more details about his or her experience.
