You know the most secure place to store your data? The answer is not at your shop. Think of any natural or man-made disaster that can happen and it has to someone else — maybe not to you but it could happen. Now think of that data at the shop. So where it is the best place? Somewhere else called a datacenter — a place that knows how to protect and backup up this data behind super thick concrete walls and data copies at several locations, AKA the cloud. This month, we talk about how you need to invest in some bandwidth to upgrade broadband so you can easily move data to and from the cloud, where it’ll be much safer than at the shop.

Hello! I'm Renato and serve as Vice President of Digital Strategy and Education at BloomNet, a premier florist services company. My primary role is to serve BloomNet's member florists by developing customized services and solutions focusing on search engine optimization (SEO), search engine marketing (SEM), social media, content marketing and mobile strategy to help them build web sales and engage customers. I also serve as lead educator for new technology, digital marketing strategy and business, consumer and demographic trends at the Floriology Institute in Jacksonville, FL.
Prior, I served as Chief Information Officer (CIO) for the Society of American Florists (SAF), the floral industry's trade organization providing marketing, technology and government relations for flower growers, suppliers, wholesalers and retailers.
I regularly evangelize technology and marketing benefits and best practices through a weekly blog at floriologyinstitute.com, a monthly column in Floriology magazine, articles in state and regional floral association publications, presentations at floral industry events, monthly webinars, on social media and chat (yes, on the phone) with BloomNet members to help solve their challenges.
I served as an active volunteer for the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) where I chaired the ASAE Technology Council, was a founding member of the Young Professionals Committee and continue to be active as a Diversity Executive Leadership Scholar (DELP).
