Rather, what is important is that in marketing Social Media is so important that it is an ADDED DIMENSION to the marketing mix!: So, Class, do you think Social Media should be the 5th P of Marketing?

The Internet technology has made ease of entry into many markets much easier˙and floral products and other gift items like candy and fruit are certainly easily accessible very simply by searching online.

That is, what used to be approximately 70% of the market: Class, if you are going to send flowers to someone out-of-state? You would probably use the Internet to find a florist in that location, wouldn?t you? Or would you just call 1-800 Flowers?
