1-800-FLOWERS.com, Inc.: Getting to Know Your Customers Across Multiple Brands

The smell of success was rooted in measurement of customer lifetime value and data integration.


Theoretically, loyalty should be complicated for a company like 1-800-FLOWERS.com, Inc., a disruptive brand that made its name selling flowers over the phone and has grown into an enterprise encompassing nine distinct brands specializing in the retail, online and mobile sales of flowers, gourmet foods and gift baskets. 

Ensuring that every customer has a consistent experience, regardless of the channel or brand, has been an evolving focus of 1-800-FLOWERS.com, Inc.

“We think that’s where the marketplace is headed, and we want to make sure our brands are positioned for this future from a loyalty perspective. If a customer is talking to Alexa, they can order flowers or ask about their points. When they’re engaging with our concierge, GWYN can make sure they know they have an outstanding $20 reward. It’s very exciting stuff.”
