US: GrowIt! Garden Shops sees 50,000 searches for local garden centersSince the launch of GrowIt!, people had been finding plants on the app that would work well in their specific locations. By seeing what people were planting around them, community members could gain inspiration for their own spaces, but one question remained, “Where can I get these plants?”
This spring, GrowIt! set out to help their community find the answer, and created the GrowIt! Garden Shops program, where independent garden centers and nurseries could post pictures of things they had in stock, and be found by local customers looking for plants on the app. It was a win for both parties. Shoppers could find great plants and knowledgeable staff, and retailers could get in front of a whole new mobile audience.
In the first four months since the launch of the Garden Shops program, over 50,000 community members were actively seeking out local garden centers on the app.
“What I liked most about the whole concept of GrowIt! was the ease of using it to find whatever a newbie gardener may want just by color, all the way up to an experienced gardener looking for a plant or variety by its Latin or scientific name. We are not the most tech-savvy mobile device users, and even we can use it with ease! And if you are a part of GrowIt! with your garden center, you pop up readily as a source for just what they may be looking for. Everyone looks at their phone or other mobile device for anything at anytime these days, and voila,,...there you are!” says Donna Nykaza-Jones, owner of Ray’s Quality Greenhouse in Matteson, Illinois.
