Are you already engaged in floral business ? Would you like to make a difference in the floral business ? Are you interested in brushing up on your flower arrangement skills ? Would you like to expand the portfolio of your floral decorations ?
If your answer to one of above questions is “Yes”, it is a good idea to take lessons of flower arrangements from now on. No matter whether you are an experienced floral designer or florist, learning continuously flower arrangements will help you enhance your designing skills and it will expand the portfolio of your flower designs.
We often get inquiries from people who are already engaged in floral business as a floral shop owner or floral designer seeking the possibilities of learning flower arrangements. You may feel it strange because they are already doing floral business and nevertheless they would like to learn floral art from now on. The reason behind this is many floral shop owners in the United States have never taken any official lessons.
There is no legal requirements to run a floral shop except for getting a business license and also a seller’s permit (resale license). As far as they have these licenses, they can easily open a floral shop no matter whether they have decent skills of floral decorations. It does not matter what kind of floral design education they got before opening a floral shop. The authority does not mind the educational background or skills and experiences in floral decorations. This makes it easy for anybody to start the business as a florist in the United States. And it is a good environment for people who are ambitious to start their own business.
Quite frankly speaking, as far as the floral shop is concerned, we cannot say that flower shop owners with excellent floral arranging skills can always make more money than a poor skill owner. It largely depends on business sense whether the business is successful or not just like perfect and the best quality products do not always sell better than satisfactory quality products. Most consumers are heavily affected by advertisements that are done by manufacturers and distributors (or retailers). If they successfully establish an excellent image about the products they sell and also the services they provide, they can win the game in many cases.
Nevertheless I do recommend that floral shop owners with no experiences of learning floral designs should take lessons from a reliable instructor only because it will greatly help them understand what they are lacking now and what they need to earn from now in order to place themselves in a better position to win the competition towards even more expansion of their business.
Even if they are doing a good job as a business owner right now, learning floral designs from now will help them do it better. Needless to say if they feel they are lacking skills of floral decorations and need improvements to do a better job, it is definitely a wise decision to take lessons from now on.
If you are the owner of a floral shop and feel that your sales in the field of wedding and funeral flower industries is not so high, there must be some room for your business to make further expansion because these two industries dominate the floral service market. If you have not yet touched upon these industries, you are quite lucky because you have sufficient room for making expansion of your business.
