It’s Time to Celebrate Summer Birthdays

Did you know that July, August and September are the most common birth months? To help you snag as many summer birthday orders as possible, we recommend considering the following strategies:

  • Share some of your most popular birthday designs on your social media channels. Be sure your shop’s information is up to date on these pages so customers won’t have any trouble contacting you to place an order.
  • Send reminder notices to customers who ordered birthday arrangements from you in previous years. If you’re not already capturing birthday information in your POS system, now is a great time to start!
  • Encourage customers who are celebrating birthdays to buy flowers for themselves by offering a discount valid for the day or month of their birthdays.
  • Focus your email marketing campaigns on birthday bouquets during the most popular birth months.
  • Leverage the FTD Co-op Advertising program to help you send a birthday-themed direct mail piece. When you include the Mercury Man in your advertising, we’ll reimburse you up to $2,500 ($3,000 Canada). Additional program details are available at www.FTDi.com/CoopAdvertising/.

Just in time for all of those summer celebrations, FTD has added four new exclusive birthday bouquets.
