Our consumer culture has changed drastically over the last few decades and you can blame it all on Starbucks! Remember when you would just order a plain black coffee, add your cream and sugar and off you went? Starbucks has changed all of that and now you can personalize your drink according to size, type of milk, additional flavoring, whip or no whip and you even get your name on the cup….whew, so many decisions! In studying our buying habits a Huffington Post article explains it like this, “Since the late ’80s many consumers have desired products that meet their exact needs. No longer does “one size fit all.” Customers expect it their way and are willing to pay for it. Author Joseph Pine II, states that “every customer is his own market.” In response to this trend, all kinds of companies are offering customization of their products. Two that I’m familiar with are NIKEiD (design your own running shoes) and The Blend by Fred Segal (blend their scents to make your own personal fragrance).
The floral industry is no different when it comes to consumers. Therefore, more personalized and unique items should be in your offering. Syndicate’s Flower Recipes can help you do just that.
