1800flowers and Social Networking

It's always great to see businesses using social networks to build their brand. 1800flowers has been doing just that through twitter.

The key to social networking is to give value without expecting anything in return. Until you've gained a loyal following through giving value to your customers will you ever receive anything. Done correctly, social networking builds brands, gains customer loyalty and trust and promotes your business.

1800flowers is doing all that by highlighting different twitter followers and keeping people's interest by tweeting fun facts like "Fun flower fact: There are over 125,000 known flower species."

1800flowers keeps their followers and customers engaged by asking questions and interacting with them. All this leads to good mojo and people tend to trust companies that have a personal approach to their target audience.

Eyeglasses are sexy!

Tina Fey makes eyeglasses look sexy. That's the thought I had while I was shopping for eyeglasses when I found out I had weakened sight - in one eye.

Unfortunately, I'm not Tina Fey. Instead of sexy, I look like a geek with glasses too big for my nose. I know there are eyeglasses out there that can make me look good. A quick look through eyeglasses.com tells me that indeed, they can look good. They have variety and also don't necessarily need to drill a hole in my pocket but alas, I've yet to figure out how to make the smart choice where eye glasses are concerned.

How do I make them look good on me?

What looks good to me in the shop ends up not looking good outside it - after I've ordered them of course. My sisters are no help. They love rubbing it in (like any sibling worth their salt would).

1800flowers for all occasions

When we think about flowers, it's usually in the happy sense. Flowers are associated with birthday, anniversaries, weddings etc.

What we often forget is that they are also associated with sorrow. You give flowers to express sympathy, condolences etc. They're left at graves, used in funerals, memorials and vigils.

When given at a sad occasion, extreme care is taken in your choice of flowers. 1800flowers helps you make the most appropriate and thoughtful choice accordingly.

With 1800flowers, you can commiserate with your loved ones and support them in their hour of need.

Just as there is sadness in the world, there is also happiness. 1800flowers is there in your happy times too.
