If you happen to be someone that has an already running website then you are more than lucky. Starting a new website and running it would take a considerably longer time. It would be a while before a new website would feature on the first page of google. So, make use of an already running website and add in an additional domain for flowers and delivery.
To keep things simple you can just add a shopping page into the already running website. Make sure to add in some keywords relating to flowers and delivery to make sure that your page is easily searchable and accessible by everyone.

Make some universal floral designs i.e Designs that can be used for every event and occasion. Do not upload your entire floral catalog on the website, as the days when we used to go through entire catalogs are now behind us.
Make sure to add some designer choice options. You can upload 10-20 floral designs, but less is good in this case. Only use those flowers and stems to make floral designs that are easily available to you. Be as creative with the designs as you want. It would take off some stress as you wouldn’t need to worry about keeping an endless stash of flowers that you are not going to use.
The easiest way to run your business in a pandemic is by reaching the customers on your own instead of waiting for them to come. You can do so by sending out emails to your customers to tell them that you have entered the retail business and can get the floral designs shipped to their doorsteps.
You can also generate new clients by putting up ads on different platforms. For example, you can put an advertisement on Facebook, run a Google AdWords ad, put posts on social media, and by hiring google reviews.
