    Alright so I once read somewhere on this forum about a girl who gave roses a little before valentine's to get people to sign up with an offer.I'm 16 , I can't rent mall booths , so here's what I'm doing on valentine's day.

    I went to my local flower shop a few days ago and asked them for 100 roses, since I was buying so much I got them for 1$ each.

    On valentine's day I plan to go door to door selling these roses for 5$ , anyways they sell for 6$ around this time of year at any flower shop.

    If I can sell 100 roses at 5$ each , that will make me a net profit of 400$. Personally I think I can sell double that amount , and even more if I go tomorrow before valentine's day , but this year I want to test the waters. Heck I'm pretty sure some people will buy more than 1 rose for their spouse!

    If you can sell 200 within a day then you net 800$ profit. 200 roses sounds like a lot , but I'm pretty sure many people will buy multiple roses , your conversion rate will be high and if you go at it for the whole day you can easily sell 200 roses.

    Just another idea,

    if this works out , I plan to hire 5-6 cute girls to sell roses all across the city instead of just around my area.

    I'm sure some people won't do this because it involves making a deal with the flower shop , so go buy roses at Costco for 2$ each!

    If someone comes to my door trying to sell 1 rose for $5 dollars, I'm going to jack all their cash and the flowers...

    Good luck. Door to door selling is a pain. Do let us know what your conversion ends up being

    Hello,
    I know I would not let a 16 year old girl go out by herself selling
    door to door,unless you are looking to sell more than roses.
    Also roses is the code used on Craigslist for money for sex.
    Have fun but be safe.

    If I was going to do it then I would take a different approach. Just find a busy intersection and sell them to people as they stop at the lights. I've seen people do this a lot and they are always making a sell.

    You would be surprised at how many guys will come by who forgot to go buy something and they'll just pick them up from you. If you dressed like you where homeless you may even do better. :)

    LMAO Think about this: It''s Valentines Day... some guy shows up with roses to some single and bitter dude's house. Or some dude who thinks his girlie is cheating already.....


    don't you think I'd shoot you in the face?


    if I were single and bitter, I mean.


    Which I'm not.




    good idea.



    :(

    BETTER IDEA-

    Since you have a great affiliation with these rose sellers (not to be confused with CL prostitutes lol).

    Just open up a website like 1800flowers.com and advertise around. Buy 1000 flowers daily (depending on orders) and only sell locally. Sell bundled roses for $25 and up.

    Do some marketing and free SEO for the site and become a multimillion dollar company.

    It's actually kind of that easy lol


    FOR VALENTINE'S DAY.

    Attach little tickets on the roses and sell them for $2. On the ticket include a love offer CPA and put "Their is a message for you on http://affiliatelink.com" and you'll get like a 1:6 ratio on conversion. Good stuff.

    Yeah there's a guy in my city who makes a living selling flowers on the busiest street corner downtown for almost 20 years now . He looks like a bum and just stands there with buckets of roses killing it each day. I bet he makes 50% of his salary on valentines day alone.

    It's not a bad idea, but I am against manual labour lol

    This is why I am on the internet making money in the first place, so I don't have to do stuff like door to door selling etc.

    Good luck though!
