GetFlowersDaily: Traditional Flowers at a Click
Please introduce yourself and your startup GetFlowersDaily to our readers!
Originally started at home in East Bengaluru in November 2014, GetFlowersDaily.com has now expanded and spread its wings dispersing the aroma of traditional flowers, to people at their door steps. We envisage to expand very soon across regions in the whole of Namma Bengaluru.
GetFlowersDaily.com is a genuine attempt to break the Farmer-agent-consumer chain and establish a moral market by creating a Farmer-Consumer chain where the farmer gains deserved profits for all his hard work that goes into irrigation and cultivation. We engage into cultivating of traditional flowers and selling thus establishing a clear link with the customer and eliminating multiple intervening parties or agents.
GetFlowersDaily.com group meets the consumer requirement of high quality flowers at a standard and reasonable rate irrespective of market price fluctuations.
How did you get the idea to GetFlowersDaily?
Every week my mom will ask me to get flowers and I end either getting high price or low quality flower frequently. And thus started thinking on solution and started with Just 1 product that’s is Jasmine String. On subsequent request from subscribe, we have added all possible products required by any household.
How difficult was the start and what challenges you had to overcome?
Starting was easy for just 1 week for me. We faced challenge in fixing price for each product and later we again modified the pricing based on season.
