buyers increased by about ten percent in comparison to the previous year, according to the Allensbach study the number of Fleurop Internet customers increased by one third. For next year, the company is expecting another two-digit increase in online sales.
    Aside from precisely coordinating all advertising measures, such as e-mail marketing, banner ads, and POS tools for the classic advertising activities, partnering with candy manufacturer Ferrero (brands, among others, are Mon Chéri, Rocher) proved to be very successful. Flower coupons, attached to special campaign packages, allow customers to get discounts at the Fleurop shops.
    Matching its products’ emotional orientation, Fleurop AG plans to increase its involvement in the area of corporate citizenship. During June, July, and August of last year, Fleurop offered so-called “UNICEF bouquets.” From the sale of each bouquet, four euros were donated to the United Nations Children’s Fund. The customer donated two euros and Fleurop added the other two. A highly effective measure for customer management.

    Conclusion: By employing varied measures, Fleurop AG manages to display a positive presence in a variety of target groups from the end user to business to business customers. The business to business area is developing into a highly successful enterprise where Fleurop is keeping custom-tailored , individual offers available .
