As a business coach specializing in helping florists and event businesses scale and grow, I understand the importance of effective advertising copy. To ensure your marketing copy has maximum impact and is really working for you, here are five major components you must consider (and in the following order!)


  1. Command Attention: Your headline should be attention-grabbing, compelling people to learn more about your products and services. Craft headlines that vividly portray the unique benefits you offer or demonstrate how your offerings can solve problems. For example, instead of starting off your marketing copy with 'Wedding Florist' you can be more creative and grab people's attention with a headline like "Unleash the Enchanting Beauty of Your Dream Wedding: Transform Every Moment with Exquisite Floral Designs"

  2. Showcase Benefits: Highlight the specific benefits of your products and services, emphasizing how they can solve problems or meet customers' needs. Show potential clients what's in it for them and provide clear, factual information to demonstrate how your offerings will help them. For example if you're an event planner then make sure that your marketing copy speaks about the time and stress savings that you can bring to your clients. Event planning can be an intricate and time-consuming process and by hiring an event planner, they can offload the extensive logistical work, allowing them to focus on other important aspects of their life or business. An event planner will handle the nitty-gritty details, such as vendor coordination, venue selection, and timeline management, relieving you of the stress and ensuring a smooth planning process.

  3. Offer Proof: Establish credibility by offering proof of what your advertisement claims. Share information that demonstrates your ability to deliver results and showcase past performance. This will reassure potential clients that your business can be trusted. This is critically important so make sure that after every arrangement you make or event you deliver on you are taking great photos and asking for client testimonials that you can use in the future. 

  4. Persuade: Provide compelling reasons for potential customers to choose your products or services. By creating a sense of urgency, you encourage potential clients to take action immediately, ensuring they don't miss out on your offerings. One way that this can be done is by creating exclusive collections or limited edition floral arrangements for a specific period. Promote these offerings as unique and available only for a limited time. This approach appeals to customers who don't want to miss out on something special and can prompt them to make a purchase promptly.

  5. Call to Action: Compel potential customers to take the desired action. Whether it's visiting your website, signing up for your newsletter, making a purchase, or contacting you for services, make it clear what steps they need to take. Consider offering samples, limited-time prices, or other incentives to make customers feel like they're receiving an amazing deal.

Remember, all these components must be present in your marketing copy to make it effective. Take the time to carefully consider each component and find the best way to integrate them for maximum effectiveness. Feeling really stuck on exactly how to market your floral business?
