London, Greater London, United Kingdom, 2008/02/11 - Arena Flowers proudly announces the launch of video messaging services, allowing recipients to receive a personalised video message along with flower orders.
ArenaFlowers.com, the UK’s leading Online Florists has many firsts to its credit. Apart from being the first florist in the UK to be accredited by Fair Flowers Fair Plants, the European initiative for production and sales of sustainable, ethical flowers, it is also the only florist to be accredited by Ethical Company Organisation, the UK’s independently verified Corporate Social Responsibility standard. It was also the first florist to offer virtual flowers through its application Flowers & Fun on the popular social networking platform, Facebook.
ArenaFlowers.com is proud to have added yet another first to its growing list. On Thursday, 07th February 2008, the company unveiled its world first service for flower lovers – Video Messaging. The concept is simple. Customers choose to add a video or audio file during the order process and then upload the video after completing checkout. ArenaFlowers.com then delivers the video message to the recipient through a specially designed viewing area on its site. The video integration is powered by vzaar.com. This forms part of vzaar.com’s strategy to make its advanced video platform available to other online businesses looking to exploit the power of video to grow their business.
Flowers epitomise emotion and personalising flowers through a unique video/audio message is sure to win many recipients’ hearts. With Valentine’s and Mother’s days just around the corner, many of us are looking for the right place to buy flowers. ArenaFlowers.com has always prided itself in offering unique customer focused experiences and believes that the Video messaging service will help customers express themselves better to their nearest and dearest.
Launched in September 2006, ArenaFlowers.com is already the leading independent florist in the UK due to its innovative approach. ArenaFlowers.com sources all its floral produce direct from the Westland market in Holland, cutting out importing middlemen and London markets. This allows ArenaFlowers.com to pass substantial cost savings onto customers and to deliver the freshest possible flowers to customers, giving a longer vase-life in the home. ArenaFlowers.com operates an online and telephone (0800 0350 581) direct order service - there is no retail outlet. ArenaFlowers.com is a member of Fair Flowers Fair Plants (FFP) and champions the ethical treatment of flowers, their environment and their growers.
ArenaFlowers.com outperformed hundreds of hopeful new businesses to become a London winner in the 2007 HSBC Start-up Stars Awards. The national contest, now in its seventh year, is designed to seek out the most promising new businesses in the UK.
ArenaFlowers.com offers free same-day delivery for all orders in London, free next-day delivery for the rest of the UK, and same-day for most of the world.
