Handling Negative Press when Someone Gets Hurt

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

Regular Fun HouseAs a bounce house rental business owner you likely know that it is inevitable that someone, adult or child, is going to get injured on one of your units. Bounce houses are fairly safe, especially if you follow all of the rules, but unfortunately far too often people neglect to put the rules into place. This makes it much easier for children to get injured when using your equipment. When someone gets injured using your equipment is likely that the parent of that child is going to blast the information all over social media websites. How, then, do you handle this negative press?


You know that the moonwalks for sale you purchased are extremely safe, but once you get one negative review about your business that states that a child got injured using one of your units you will find that you have to deal with the reality of children getting injured in bounce houses. The first thing you need to be is apologetic. Inside your head you may be thinking that the child would likely not have been injured if the people in charge were followed all of the instructions you gave them. That is likely true, but having an attitude like that is not going to smooth the situation over. Instead, make sure you are apologetic. Apologize that a child got injured while trying to have a fun time, and apologize that the family had to deal with a frustrating situation.

Moving Ahead

Once you have apologize to the family it is time to make a statement using social media. In a very polite way explained that sounds houses can be extremely safe to use, just as safe as trampolines and pools, as long as all of the safety rules are followed. Put a link up on your social media sites that gives the safety instructions for the moonwalks for sale that you happen to own and rent out. Explain that you are more than happy, for a small fee, to stay and monitor the unit and the children as you realize that parents can be very busy. It is important to make sure that your current customers, and your potential customers, realize that you take both safety, and injuries, extremely seriously. If you ignore the situation you will find that the negative press about your company only grows.

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : May 27th, 2013 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Lime Green BouncerThere are many ways that you can make money when you own an inflatable bounce house rental business. Unfortunately, most people believe that the only way you can earn an income from this type of business is to rent to parents who are looking to use the bounce house as entertainment for their child’s birthday party. By thinking outside of the box, however, you will find that you can earn a much bigger payday while, at the same time, spreading your name.

Inflatable Play Area

When you purchased your commercial inflatable’s for sale you likely had never heard of an inflatable play area. An inflatable play area is where you set up a number of different inflatable units and allow children to use them all. You may see this type of play area at a small county fair, but they are actually becoming more and more prevalent thanks to the amount of money it’s possible to earn by simply setting one up. But how do you go about setting up an inflatable play area?

First, you need a location. In order to set up an inflatable play area you need to find a location that you are allowed to use. Many bounce house rental business owners look to local parks, and that can be a good idea. Once you have found a location you will be to get some permits. In order to get permits simply go to the city or town office, explain what you’re going to do, and fill out the forms required. You may need to pay a fee to file these forms, and you may also need to pay a fee to use the area.

Once you have your location, and your permit, it’s time to start advertising. Show pictures and videos of the commercial inflatable’s for sale that you have on social media websites and advertise where you are going to be, when you’re going to be there, and how much it is going to cost. Make sure you keep the cost low enough that families will believe the trip is worthwhile and high enough that you can make money as well. You may even want to make a deal with a local snacks vendor so that they can set up nearby allowing them to make money as children and their parents get hungry and thirsty using your equipment.

Getting Creative to Afford Advertising

Mini Bounce IIIn today’s economic world almost everyone, include bounce house companies are feeling the pinch. More often than not, business owners are refusing to pay for advertising simply because they do not feel they are in a financial situation where they can afford to advertise. But not advertising means that you are limiting the amount of customers you are likely to get. In small towns word-of-mouth is a great way to get business, but word-of-mouth is not something you can rely upon when it comes to big cities. Even if you don’t happen to have the cash available to afford advertising that doesn’t mean that you can’t still advertise.


It used to be that bartering was a way of life. Whenever someone wanted something they would barter what they had to get what they needed. Our economy has become one that is primarily cash fueled but that doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to barter. For instance, let’s say that you want to advertise your business so you can make some money from the jumpers for sale that you purchased from the manufacturer. One thing that you can do is to contact the local newspaper and to explain that you are interested in bartering your services to get a few ads. There are many ways that a newspaper can make use of a bounce house, including personal reasons as well as business reasons. You may have to take a bit of a hit – it is not likely that the business is going to willing to give you even exchange for advertising, but taking a small hit is a small price to pay in order to get the advertising that you need to help your business.

Free Advertising

Another way to get advertising when you don’t have any money is to look at free advertising opportunities. Craigslist, for instance, is one great way to advertise your business and the jumpers for sale that you purchased. Craigslist allows you to advertise for free and, as a bonus, you can advertise in more than one city and even more than one state. This is definitely a great way to be able to advertise without having to pay out any money. Social media websites, like Facebook and Twitter, are also wonderful ways to advertise your business without having to pay any money. Don’t let a lack of cash in the bank stop you from advertising your bounce house business – instead, get creative!

Jungle Monkey 2One of the biggest things that you need to take note of when you own a bounce house rental business is what types of units your clients are looking to rent.

Understanding Commercial Inflatable Jumpers

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : May 19th, 2013 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Happy Crayon JumperOne thing that most bounce house rental business owners find themselves having to do on a regular basis is explain to their customers why their bounce house units are different from the units that you can purchase in big box stores like Target and Walmart. These inflatable units that are designed for home use are becoming less and less expensive to purchase, which leaves many potential clients believing that they are overpaying for the rental use of one. By being able to explain to potential clients, in layman’s terms, the difference between commercial inflatable jumpers and personal inflatable jumpers you will find you’re much more likely to make the sale.

The Big Differences

There are many differences that you will find between the two types of unit starting with the material the commercial inflatable jumpers made of. Commercial inflatable jumpers and made of a much more sturdy and strong vinyl material. This material is designed to withstand not only dozens of kids jumping on it over and over again, but also the elements as well. Personal inflatable jumpers, in contrast, are made of a much more flimsy vinyl and aren’t generally not designed to be weatherproof. Put one of those units out in the rain and it is likely that you will find a hole in it as soon as the rain has gone.

Another difference between the two is size. You will be hard-pressed to find a personal inflatable unit that is big enough to hold more than two children at a time – and even then it is likely that the unit advises you to have only one child on at the time. With commercial units, however, you can fit a number of children on the bounce house at one time safely.

There are many differences between the two types of units but if you ever have a client who is complaining about the price of your rental explain to them that you understand their frustration, and their budget restraints, but that there are big differences between commercial units and personal units and that because commercial units are designed to last for such a long time, and because they are larger and able to handle inclement weather, the units are much more expensive to purchase.
