Happy November everyone! After a lot of work and a big learning curve, we have just beta launched the new site for 1000 Flowers, and it is now mobile friendly!
In 2010, when I was last in Canada, I attended a number of small business training courses to deepen my knowledge of the Adobe design programs, and also of web design. Our amazing teacher told us then how mobile capability was going to be one of the most important things for successful online business. And one can see how digital life has changed in general just in that 5 years since. Everyone is mobile, either by phone or tablet, and the home PC is now being used less and less. I have also seen several longtime dedicated bloggers discontinuing their work, since amongst other reasons, the mobile readers are less likely to follow a full length blog entry than the short little blurbs on Instagram or other more mobile friendly, fast-paced platforms. Also, people have definitely become more comfortable and confident shopping from their mobiles. So we are very happy to have joined the mobile world with 1000 Flowers! (SITE)
You will see a few changes in the boutique: our 15ml splash version is discontinued, and all fragrances are now available in 30ml, with Reglisse Noire available in 30ml and 50ml format. In about 1 month, we will be announcing a brand new collection of fragrances from 1000 Flowers, inspired by the Mediterranean region, with all new packaging and a sunny, vibrant theme. And in the coming days, we will tell you how you can be part of the launching of that collection.
To celebrate the new site, for the next 7 days (until Nov 7th), we will offer a coupon worth 15% from your purchase- just enter the code: ‘sunshine’ on the checkout page (all lowercase). Also, since we are still beta, feel free to comment and let us know how you find your experience navigating the site.
Also, you will be seeing some informative posts appearing here on the blog, written by a guest writer, an intern here at 1000 Flowers, who will be exploring various subjects relating to Grasse, perfumery, and the region. So sign up if you haven’t already, and stay tuned! Have a happy day!
