Anything else you’d like to share with Flirty Fleurs followers?
I am a floral tech visionary and am working on two online projects that I think will help some florists. One is a online wedding consultation form for florists with a light social networking built in. I’m looking for feedback, on this project so if you want to take a look, please let me know.
The second project I am working on, which will be out in July is a floral shopping cart that has all the features all other shopping carts have and a lot more. For example, florists will now be able to sell their flowers on Facebook and when someone comes to their site on an iPad or slate, there is a specific template it switches the layout to accommodate the buyer.
