The Importance of High Quality Photos and Video

Choo Choo Train Bounce HouseDo you know what the differences between the owner of a business that succeeds and the owner of a business that fails? There are a lot of things that may be different about the two of them, but almost always the person who owns the business that succeeds generally knows how to delegate. Any good business owner recognizes the fact that no one is perfect and everything. For instance you may be great up marketing, but you may be horrible with speaking directly to clients. Knowing what you are good at, and what you are not good at, is extremely important when you are renting out commercial inflatables.

Your Weak Points

It is a good idea to make sure that you recognize what your weak points are, just as you should know what your strong points are as well. One common mistake we see owners of commercial inflatable units make is to take, and use, bad pictures and videos of their commercial units. Remember the old saying a picture is worth 1000 words? That saying is definitely true. If you post a bad photo of your jump units, people are going to believe that all of your units are shabby and falling apart. If, however, you post high quality photos of your units then your potential clients will be much more interested in talking with you as they will truly get the opportunity to see how gorgeous your bounce units are.

The problem is that most of us are not wonderful photographers. To be a great photographer takes a good eye, a steady hand, and a decent camera. Taking a photo of your bounce house units with a point-and-shoot camera may work, but it is definitely not going to give you the type of high quality, high definition photos that your potential clients are going to want to see. If you’re not photographer, it may be a good idea to hire a photographer to take great photos of your bounce units set up. You may be worrying about the cost – don’t. You need to remember that you have something to barter – your bounce house units! You might be able to make a deal with a local photographer to allow them to use your bounce house units a specific amount of times in exchange for taking excellent photos of your commercial inflatables.

Should You Get a Vehicle Tracking System

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : January 20th, 2013 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Clown Bouncer IWhen you first look at inflatable jumpers for sale and start thinking about creating your own bounce house rental business, one of the last things on your mind is going to be if you will need to get a vehicle tracking system. This is because almost everyone who start a bounce house rental business begins by doing it on their own with absolutely no employees. But if you work hard, and are in a good location, your business will grow rapidly requiring that you hire employees in order to meet the demands of your clients. Then the question becomes this: how much do you trust your employees?

Trust-worthy

Firstly it is always vital that you make sure that you only hire people that you feel you can trust. It may not be a good idea to hire family or friends because there are a lot of sticky situations that can arise when business owners hire people they are too close to. No matter who you hire, however, the question then becomes how much you trust them. It is important to remember that even if you would trust them with your life you never know what could happen. They may get in an accident, they may be slacking off, or they may decide they need to utilize a company vehicle in order to do their errands without permission from you.

One question most business owners will eventually have to think about is whether or not they should invest in a vehicle tracking system for their cars. Vehicle tracking systems utilize GPS information in order to tell you where the cars are in real time at all times. This way you will know if one of your drivers made it to their destination or not. It sounds great, then why do many business owners question whether they should have it or not? Mainly because they are worried their employees will feel that they do not trust them. If you want to have a vehicle tracking system installed in your delivery vehicles, but do not want to upset your employees, simply explain to them that you are installing the vehicle tracking system for their safety so that you will know if something happens during the delivery.
