Short Summmary

Create a new website to promote a florist business based in New Zealand, where the client's customers buy bulk flowers and standard arrangemnts to floral shops, hotels, funeral homes and other businesses. The main focus was to drive new traffic to the site, where bandwidth issues are important to load times. From there, promote buyers to visit the grounds, buy flower arrangements, and use an online form for orders.
