- Engage deeply with big picture trends
- Learn how to apply these shifts to help streamline costs and generate revenue
- Network and connect with peers for shared problem-solving and reinvention strategies.
When a mistake happens at H-E-B’s BLOOMS Floral Shops, Joe Don Zetzsche trains his team to ask the person responsible an important question: Are you OK? “It’s part of our philosophy: No one comes to work to make a mistake or do a bad job,” explained Zetzsche, who, as director of BLOOMS, oversees all operations and logistics — from working with growers to planning in-store merchandising — for H-E-B’s 250 floral departments. “Things are going to go wrong — we know that — but we have to find ways to build each other up, so that we can move forward.”
Here are content ideas for social posts with messaging that reflects the COVID-19 sales environment, with suggestions to post on your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter channels. Use as is or customize to your liking. While your custom photos will be best as the visuals that go with the text, we’ve provided some examples to get you started.
