Social Media Strategies & Best Practices for the Floral Industry

Yesterday, I had the great pleasure and honor to present my thoughts on how to implement social media marketing successfully at the 2013 WF&FSA Floral Distribution Conference.  After researching the list of attendees signed up for my presentation, I decided that the main focus needs to be on content marketing.  To be successful on any social media platform, you need killer content!  Remember, content is king!

Thank you to everyone who attended my session and for asking questions.  This was my first time speaking at this level – your energy and thoughtfulness made it a great experience!  While I am very pregnant right now and became a little out of breath while I was speaking, I hope you enjoyed the presentation and are inspired to created killer content!

Side note:  I started the session with the “#Hashtag with Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake” video.  We were able to watch part of it, but for some reason I lost the connection, so just in case you still wanted to watch the vid, check it out here.

Mayesh Wholesale Florist Announces Solar Energy Project at Its Largest Facility


“Going green”, “eco-friendly”,  and “carbon footprint” are all very popular phrases right now in all aspects of our life.  The floral industry, in particular, often times is scrutinized for its environmental practices and issues.  Mayesh Wholesale Florist is aware of the issues and have made some changes  – in lighting choices and recycling for example –  to help the environment.  Today, however, I’m so excited to share with you our current solar energy project that will be implemented at our largest and most integral facility, as it is our main distribution center.  I will surely share the progress of this super carbon-reducing project, so stay tuned for more info and pictures!

Read on for the official press release!




Los Angeles, July 2013

Mayesh Wholesale Florist, Inc. has signed an agreement to build a solar energy project at its 42,000 square foot refrigerated facility in Riverside, California. The project will generate 210,280 KwH of power in the first year and will dramatically reduce energy consumption and electricity cost for the distributor of fresh cut flowers.

CEO Patrick Dahlson said, “We participate in an industry which is increasingly concerned with environmental issues. As such, it is incumbent on us to be a good corporate citizen. Our solar project in Riverside is good for Mayesh, good for the environment and we are happy to be able to make this investment.”

Mayesh operates 15 distribution facilities in seven states and supplies fresh cut flowers to retail florists and event companies in all 50 states. The Riverside solar project will be operational by the fourth quarter of 2013 and is the first of what Mayesh expects to be several similar projects to help reduce its carbon footprint.

Floral Professionals Come Together to Help Honor the Granite Mountain Hotshots

I’m sure you have heard on the news about the 19 wildfire specialists that came to aid in Yarnell’s fierce fire were tragically killed.  On Tuesday, July 9th, a memorial service for the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots took place.

You may not have heard, however,  about the team of floral designers, wholesalers, and many other companies who volunteered time, resources, and fresh flowers to create floral tributes used for the memorial service.  We worked with Arizona area florists such as Allan’s Flowers, Prescott Valley Florist, and Tulip Tree Florist, to supply product from over 10 of our own suppliers who also wanted to get involved to honor these fallen heroes.

It is great to see another example of how our industry can work together at a time of need to help provide some level of consolation that we all know flowers bring to solemn events.  Thank you to everyone that was involved and for the privilege of allowing Mayesh to participate.
