If you have an idea to start a flower selling business, then you are lucky because you have chosen a business that has a wide market.
The wider the market of a business, the more profit it will get from there. Moreover, if later you can choose the right business location so that there are fewer competitors, the greater the profits that can be obtained.
Starting a flower selling business is actually not difficult, it’s just that there will still be efforts made at the beginning. Businesses such as looking for flower suppliers, looking for accessories, adding insight, and willing to spend capital.
Everything that must be prepared to start a flower selling business will be discussed. Previously, there will be information on several types of flower businesses that can add to your inspiration.
Then proceed with a table that contains an estimated profit that can be obtained by running this business.
Starting from selling flowers in the form of flower bouquets or ikay flowers to plastic flowers, everything on the following list can be used as inspiration. That’s right, flower businesses don’t just have to sell fresh flowers.
1. Bouquet of Flowers and Bunch of Flowers
Starting with the business of tie flowers or what has another name for a flower bouquet. It can be said that this type of business is the most in demand.
Moreover, these floral products can be obtained with any budget. Starting from 20 thousand to hundreds of thousands of rupiah the price.
Will this flower business be branded as luxuriously as possible so that the target is the upper middle class, or is it comprehensive for any class.
What should be prepared in moderation, such as fresh flowers, accessories, business space, to marketing strategies such as special social media.
2. Flower Board (Wreath)
The next option is plank flowers. Both are needed, but will be rarer than a bouquet or bunch of flowers.
Even so, once there is an order for a bouquet of flowers, the profits can be even greater. The one-time advantage of ordering a bouquet of flowers is greater than the profit of one-time order of a bunch of flowers.
The target market for flower bouquets is usually anyone, but the majority of them are important people or those who have many relationships.
Because flower bouquets are usually ordered to congratulate someone on a new business, congratulate someone on their wedding, or offer condolences to a deceased person.
Like tie flowers, flower bouquets are also offered at various prices depending on the order. For now, the price of the cheapest flower bouquets with medium sizes is around 500 to 600 thousand rupiahs. There are bouquets of flowers that are ordered in such a way that they have a price of millions of rupiah.
3. Flowers for Grave Pilgrimage
Next is the business of selling flowers for grave pilgrimages. Always needed, and this business will not fade.
You only need to buy sow flowers wholesale, then stand by around the cemetery to sell them.
The risk is loss because no one makes a pilgrimage. However, even so, it is still not too much of a loss because the capital required is not much.
4. Plastic flower
The last is a business that sells plastic flowers. Offices, photo studios, homes, and several other types of rooms will need fake flowers more than real flowers.
Those who have it will still get a beautiful view, but there is no need to provide extra care. No need to water, fertilize, remove, and so on.
Whatever type of flower selling business you choose later, there are preparations that are general in nature to know. Here are some to prepare.
1. Strategic Business Location
The location or business space is a must-have, regardless of the type of business you have chosen. Strategic locations to sell bunches of flowers can be around the campus area, to sell flower boards or bouquets can be around urban areas so they are easy to find, as well as plastic flowers and sow flowers.
Choosing it is still adjusted to the budget, don’t force the existing capital to choose this location. Because later you have to capital again for the interest sold.
2. Fresh Flower Supplier
The next preparation is a supplier of fresh flowers. You can start by looking for a supplier who can best offer low prices and really want to come to your shop every day to deliver flowers.
3. Special Flower Containers
Must have containers specifically for flowers as stock. Including selling sow flowers, you will still need a special container so that the flowers are always in good condition so that they attract attention.
Also for selling plastic flowers, the right shelves and arrangement will help you attract the purchasing power of potential customers.
Having a business selling flowers will make you learn, learn how to arrange flowers, how to attract customers’ attention, to how to market it.
Unless you’re hiring to be a florist, to be on a marketing team, etc., there’s no need to learn.
Even to sell sow flowers, there are still things that should be studied, knowing the funeral times are crowded with pilgrims, for example.
