How Your Business Can Make London Less Lonely

Last week a woman hit the headlines after approaching men in East London and handing them flowers. Her experiment was to see how men reacted to the role reversal of being offered a gift by the opposite sex. Contrary to what you might think the outcome would be, men loved the idea and it brightened up their day.

As suppliers of corporate flowers in London we love to see beautiful blooms bringing people in the capital together and making their day that little bit sweeter! As a city filled with people constantly in a rush and having places to be, sometimes it’s nice to sit back and smell the roses.

London can be an extremely exciting place filled with thousands of things to do in an evening, but it’s also well-known for how lonely its inhabitants are. If you want to buck that trend and make your business a place that people want to spend time, follow some of our tips.

Put on Activities

If there’s something for people to do, they’re more likely to visit you more often in order to pass the time. It’ll get people through the door to buy your products or service, as well as create a space where they are able to mingle with like-minded people and create lasting friendships.

Working in an office shouldn’t stop you either! Think about putting on a club of some sort after hours for people who want something to do to get involved with. Creating bonds between colleagues is a great way to increase job satisfaction, which is great from a business and personal point of view.

Make Your Displays Look Great

Creating a nice vibe for your space will make people want to keep on coming back to relax with their friends. Whether you’re a cafe or another kind of business, the people who want to spend time in your store are the same people that will part with their money. Same with in an office, if staff find the aesthetics of a place pleasing then they’ll be happy to spend their time there.

As seen with the experiment in East London, flowers really brighten up a person’s day, so dot some around to make people feel instantly better.

Hire Friendly Staff

If people are coming to your workplace for companionship, then it’s important that your staff are able to hold a conversation with customers from all walks of life. If you’re not sure if they’re up to the challenge, then hold a training session or two with them.

People want to come back to places where they have fond memories and someone to talk to, so try and go that extra mile for return custom.
