Valentine’s Day is a crucial holiday for merchants who specialize in crafting and delivering romantic gifts, like flowers, chocolates, and baked goods. Whether you’re a florist, chocolatier, or baker, the pressure is on to create beautiful products and ensure they reach their intended recipients on time. This challenge can be even more daunting for home-based businesses and solo entrepreneurs. Let’s explore how outsourcing Valentine’s Day delivery can maximize a small business’s time and revenue.
Streamline Your Operations and Focus on Crafting
For many small businesses, Valentine’s Day presents a unique set of challenges. Not only do you need to create exquisite products that embody the spirit of love, but you also need to ensure they’re delivered promptly and in perfect condition. This can be a logistical nightmare, especially for those who are juggling both production and delivery.
Florists, chocolatiers, and bakers are artisans who pour their hearts into crafting delightful treats and beautiful arrangements. The last thing you want is to be bogged down with delivery logistics. Trellus understands the specific needs of Valentine’s Day merchants. With our same-day delivery service, you can focus on what you do best — creating unforgettable experiences for your customers.
Cost-Effective, Predictable Pricing
In a Trellus case study featuring Terracotta Flowers, we learned how predictable pricing can significantly benefit small businesses. Shelley Greenberg, the owner of Terracotta Flowers, emphasized that Trellus helped her maintain efficiency and streamline her operations. By using Trellus, she eliminated the need to contact multiple drivers for deliveries, ensuring a smoother operation. As Shelley stated, “Trellus helps me be efficient so I don’t have to call 20 different people to deliver.”
One standout feature of Trellus is our predictable pricing model. Shelley highlighted that she saves 17% annually by paying upfront, locking in lower pricing. With the Trellus Pro Plan, the cost per delivery is just $6.99 up to 5 miles, with an additional $1.50 per mile beyond that. No confusing commission structures mean more control over your profits. At the time of the case study, Terracotta had completed 1565 deliveries, an average of 90 deliveries per month. That means that beyond profits generated from floral sales, Terracotta has the potential to profit an extra $450 (90 deliveries x $5) each month just on delivery.
Another case study, featuring Dolce Confections, showcased how Trellus helps small businesses scale without the overhead cost of hiring full-time drivers. Part-time drivers and manual routing had their limitations, but Trellus provided a streamlined solution. Julie Ahmad, the owner of Dolce Confections, said, “I would recommend Trellus to other small business owners for the peace of mind it provides and also because it does help you to scale.”
