HDTVs are great for watching football, but to florists, they can also serve as a powerful to impress a bride! For Floral Management Plugged In July 2014, we explore leveraging HDTVs from the florist marketing perspective such as how florists can use it to project photos and video of event party and wedding work and how to do so using an AppleTV to wirelessly project it from their iPad or Mac. We also decipher all the jargon to discern the array of choices in HDTV sets and share info of the new “smart” features that allow HDTVs to connect to the Internet and local wireless network.

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).
