Bonsai handles the back office

As a freelancer, one of your most essential concerns before starting a project is sealing a good contract with your client. It is every freelancer’s responsibility to ensure that they arrive at well-defined terms of an agreement with their clients. For example, as a florist, you want to be sure that a florist contract is in place and endorsed by your client before making further flower deliveries.  Be assured that securing this part of the deal keeps you at peace all along. 

Taking a closer look at the market, a sum of $31.3 Billion was estimated in 2015 as the amount of money spent in the US on floriculture. Another report from start-up florists shows that for both individuals and consulting companies, a sum of $150,000 represented their profits just in a calendar year. Aren’t these figures amazing? However, be reminded as a freelancer involved in floristry that these numbers are the result of a reliable and secured florist contract.

1. What details should your florist contract contain?

Are you planning to deliver flowers soon at a wedding event or some other social function? Take note of these essential points:

1.1. Obtain guidelines used at delivery venues

As a freelancer, most of your deliveries and setting may be at sites you are visiting for the first time. If you are rendering services to a couple about to wed in a sanctuary, it will be vital that you request for guidelines from the venue. Such a direction will help you immensely to prepare and edit your florist contract adequately.

1.2. Include the name of the individual(s) who will be on site

Another important detail that might seem unnecessary is the name of the individual on-site. Usually, floral consulting companies that employ several delivery agents have to make this clarification as it confers a pass of entry.

Therefore, your florist contract is valid when the name of the individual is on it.

1.3. Include the signature of company and client

The signature or seal of your company is another essential detail of your contract. Included on your florist contract are spaces for the florist deliverer and client to place a mark of signature. Without these latter signatures, there may not be any proof of service duly received.

Also, here are more tips that will be of great help to you as you plan to get grounded in floral consultation:

2. Don’t be limited in the scope of your specialization

It is common for many florists in a bid to trying to master a particular floristry area to get limited. Yes, even though every form of florist consulting requires a legal florist contract to seal a deal, be flexible in your operation and consider your clients when finalizing a contract.

Be that florist gaining continuous knowledge about your niche by engaging in wedding deliveries, birthday special, door-to-door deliveries, and a host of others. Such diversity keeps you fixed in your market and makes the client develop a taste for you the more.

3. Develop a charming online presence strategy

In the 21st century, businesses advertised more on trending platforms are guaranteed unwavering client/customer patronage. It’s pretty simple!

Social media is your best bet. All you need to do is to keep an active online presence on Instagram and Facebook, and you can be sure to keep your clients hooked on you.
