Garden Center News builds sites that help garden centers grow. Engage your customers with electronic marketing.
Garden Center News was founded because there were two business conditions that existed at the same time.

GCN is always our first choice garden center marketing site, they are exports in eNewsletter Marketing, & Garden Center Website Designing, where we know we need a good developer to make our site look proud and make us happy with their designing and search engine optimization services!
“This helps to keep our customers engaged by making it relevant to them and their needs throughout the changing year. All in all, we would highly recommend Garden Center News to you and your company, should you need a fresh and new perspective, that is ever changing and growing as your company does.”

“We have always had a website stock-piled with tons of information for our customers, yet with little to do about us as a business. After meeting with GCN and hearing that they were a small business (like us) focusing solely on garden centers, our decision to utilize their skills was an easy one. Our old website was very basic and more of a resource center. With the help of the GCN team, our site has cleaned up and become much more attractive. We still have a great source of information on our new site for our customers, but it’s more much organized and appealing. Now our website drives people to come in and smell the flowers that they can see form our site. Every Monday we get a call from our team asking for updates and opinions. The customer service is unbeatable. Technical service can actually help you without being on hold for hours. They are there for you, when you need them and that is one characteristic other web hosts can’t offer.”

August 21, 2012 – Now, more than ever, small business owners are challenged to do more & more with fewer resources. That can mean attempting to overfill your already full plate with more tasks that you most likely don’t have the skills to do efficiently or effectively. That was certainly true with our website before Garden Center News. We were stuck with a very minimal site, or increased production time that frankly, we just couldn’t manage. Working with Garden Center News, has changed a constant headache to a “dream it, they will do it” scenario. You know your business, your hot items, your rapidly changing customer’s needs….Garden Center News knows how to bring it!

“I had the opportunity to work with GCN to build our website in 2010. Throughout the entire process of the build, we were always kept well informed of project status, updates, and even of minor delays. We took a very active roll in the development of the site and the project manager at GCN took all our direction to give us a truly customized site and produced exactly what we had envisioned. Along with being able to deliver on nearly every one of our design requests, our GCN project manager’s experience with garden websites was a tremendous resource in fine tuning our vision. Because they are the best in communication, technical expertise, and delivering an awesome final product, I recommend Garden Center News to develop an online presence for your business.”
We Can Work Together
Garden Center News builds sites that help garden centers grow. Engage your customers with electronic marketing. Garden Center News was founded because there were two business conditions that existed at the same time.
- Garden centers had the most to gain from the Internet. They had great images, broad followings and limited budgets
- The web development community consistently let garden centers down by building sites with very little traffic that were not updated to reflect the seasonality of the business.
- In 2002 a survey of 200 very strong garden centers showed that 198 of them had sites that were either non-existent or out of date. Garden Centers were giving up on traditional snail mail newsletters as postage went up, and list quality was suspect.
- Blue Hills Nursery in Whittier California was the first to give us an opportunity. With less than 100 subscribers they started an e-newsletter in 2002 and got an immediate response.
- We have had double digit growth every years since. Our mission is to make sure that our sites are the best on the net for the retail garden center industry.
