Decorating a Jumping Bounce House

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : October 31st, 2012 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Princess Mini Castle BouncerAfter you’ve owned your business for a while, it is likely that you will get a little bit sick of the bounce houses that you are renting out. After all, a jumping bounce house looks the same every single time you inflate it, which can get a bit boring. There are many things that business owners might do in order to give their bounce house a new flair, but one thing that many do, which you may not want to do, is to decorate the jump house.

How would a business owner decorate a jumping bounce house? There are many ways they can do so, and typical decorations include things like taping signs or beads onto the bounce house, or even painting it. Now, it’s important to know that it is absolutely acceptable to put a banner on your bounce house, especially if the banner is one that promotes your business. But you need to know how to do it the correct way. There are a number of websites online that will explain not only where to purchase a banner for your bounce house but also how to safely install one.

Let’s talk about other forms of decoration. First, let’s discuss paint. Paint seems like one of the easiest ways to change the look of your bounce house without being too drastic, right? Wrong. A jumping bounce house is made of a very specific type of material, and it is one that does not tend to hold up against foreign objects very well. By this we mean paint. The quality of the fabric that is on your jumping bounce house is extremely important as it helps with the stability of the house. If you put paint on the fabric there is a good chance that the paint will actually degrade the fabric which can not only cause it to wear down faster, it may even cause it to pop. The same can be true for putting tape on the bounce house in order to hold beads or other types of decorative objects onto your bounce house.

Most manufacturers will tell you that it is not a good idea to put anything artificial on your jumping bounce house that is not designed to go on it. If you do so you risk ruining the bounce house and giving yourself a huge headache when it comes to purchasing a new one. If you are bored with the way your bounce house looks, it may simply mean that it is time to upgrade.

Leaving a Commercial Inflatable Slide at a Clients Home

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : October 28th, 2012 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

ATV Bounce HouseWhen you start a bounce house business, one of the last things that may be on your mind is figuring out what you were going to do with your bounce house if you are unable to go to the clients house to retrieve it. When you first start renting out things like commercial inflatable slides, you will likely have only a few units that you need to rent out. This means that should be easy for you to set up, and pick up, units on the very same day they are rented. As your business grows, however, you will likely find that it is much more difficult to set up an retrieve the unit on the same day. What happens then?

First, check with the client who rented the unit and ask them if it is possible for you to leave the unit at their home overnight. That is, if the weather is planning on being sunny, of course. If rain is expected, it is extremely important to make sure that you get the unit down and packed away so that he can stay dry even if that means recruiting some friends or family to help you. It is much better to have the commercial inflatable slide packed messily then to have it extremely soaked.

If the weather is going to be sunny and your customer has no problem with keeping the unit overnight, it’s important that you realize that you will need to give them some sort of a benefit for keeping the unit for you overnight. This can be as simple as allowing them to keep the unit inflated and to continue jumping on it through the night, and into the next morning if they would like to, without you charging them any extra amount. This can be great for families who have children as they will feel like they are able to truly get their money’s worth, and because they will feel this way it’s likely that they will tell their friends and family about your business getting you more potential customers. It’s almost impossible to run a large business alone, and if you get to the point when you are leaving the commercial inflatable slide at a customer’s house overnight more often than not, that may be a signal that you need to hire some help, which means that your business is growing and expanding and is definitely a good thing!

When You Buy Inflatable Jumpers And Aren’t Happy

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : October 25th, 2012 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Balloon Bounce HouseIn an ideal world, everything that you would purchase would come to your door in perfect working order and would be exactly what you thought it was supposed to be. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world and far too often recently people are discovering that they are ordering items and receiving products that are not anywhere near what they thought they were going to be. What, then, do you do when you buy inflatable jumpers that are not what you believe they were going to be?

Firstly, it’s important to make sure that you have high quality manufacturer available to purchase from. One of the biggest reasons that people do not get the order they believed they were going to get is because the order from a company that is not equipped to handle such orders. Businesses that are new often promise things that they are unable to deliver. That is why, before you look to buy inflatable jumpers, you need to make sure that you are looking for a manufacturer who is been in the business for a while and who is adequately able to handle your needs.

If you do purchase from a manufacturer who does not meet your expectations, there are a few things you can do. Firstly, make sure that you contact the manufacturer as soon as you realizes something is wrong. This means that it’s important that you actually set up the inflatable jumper you purchased as soon as you are able to after it arrives so that you can check over the entire unit. Never assume when you buy inflatable jumpers that they are going to be perfect, as there is nothing more disastrous than setting up a brand-new jumper at a party only to discover that it is either not what you ordered or that there is a problem with it. If you contact the manufacturer and are unable to get a resolution that you are happy with, you should then look to the Better Business Bureau. The BBB is designed to make sure that consumers get what they pay for and are the best people to go to if you are having a problem dealing with a manufacturer. Remember: you don’t have to settle for a product that you are unhappy with. When you buy inflatable jumpers, you should get exactly what you pay for.

Should You Use Direct Mailing for Your Inflatable Moon Walks Business

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : October 22nd, 2012 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Black n White Bounce HouseNot very long ago, what are the only ways that business owners could make sure that new customers knew about their business was to get involved with direct mailings. Direct mailings are way to send out a massive amount of information, to a massive amount of people, in a very formal way. Have you ever received those little postcards in your post office box that talk about a new business that is in your area? That is a result of direct mailing. People who start their inflatable moon walks business often wonder if they should look into getting involved with direct mailings or not.

Somebody who works for a large printing company will obviously tell you that direct mailings are the best way to get information out about your business. Again, 20 years ago this would definitely be true. Now, however, we live in the age of technology and people are more likely to get information via their email than they are the post office box. If you want a good example of how well direct mailing works, head to your local post office and check out their recycling bin. Inside of the recycling bin you will likely see hundreds upon hundreds of direct mailing postcards that were likely simply glanced at and then thrown into the recycling bin. Does this seem like a good way to get new business?

So if direct mailing is a great way to get new business for your inflatable moon walks company, then what is? You could actually use the idea of direct mailings, with the digital twist on them, to help you to get more business. The digital twist basically means using email to help spread the word about your business. How can you do this? First, make sure there is a page on your website that allows people to sign up for newsletter, but you have to make sure that the newsletter is worthwhile to sign up for. For instance you may want to give something like a 5% off coupon to those who sign up for the newsletter as no one enjoys signing up for this type of information without getting some sort of reward in exchange. Once you have people signed up for the newsletter, make sure you send one out regularly and that it is full of interesting information. You may also want to give benefits to those people who pass along information about your business and who get you more emails to connect with as well.
