What If Your Bounce House Breaks Before an Event

The motto of any business owner, and the Boy Scouts of America of course, is to be prepared. Unfortunately, far too often brand-new business owners do not realize exactly what being prepared means and wind up in over their head. For instance, what happens if you have an event on Saturday and set up the unit for a party on Friday only to discover that there is a huge hole in your inflatable and that it will not be able to be used for the event?

Solutions

There are a few different solutions to this problem. The first solution is to make sure you purchase enough inflatables for sale to have one as a constant backup. This unit should only be pulled out when necessary and is the perfect way to help you to avoid this type of sticky situation. But what do you do if you did not think ahead and have not purchased an extra bounce house unit?

The first option is to contact the client and to explain the situation while assuring them that you offer them a refund. Now, many business owners believe that simply offering a refund is enough to make the clients happy but the truth of the matter is when you are dealing with parents who were looking forward to using the bounce house to help distract the children during a party or event, simply offering a refund is not enough. Instead of just offering a refund you may want to contact another local bounce house business owner.

When there is simply not enough time to purchase new inflatables for sale to help cover your sticky situation, asking another local business owner to help may be the best idea. Explain to the business owner that you are in dire need of a unit and that you will pay full price for the unit – even if this means paying money out of your own pocket. It is never fun to pay out of your own pocket but it is much better to lose a bit of money than to lose one client, and therefore potentially thousands of clients, for good. Remember: the best option is to always have a backup inflatable unit ready to go just in case the unthinkable happens.

Tips for Making That First Bounce House Purchase

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : July 26th, 2013 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Pumpkin InflatableYou’ve decided that you are ready to take the leap into the world of financial freedom and you are going to start a bounce house rental business. This type of business can be extremely lucrative, but first things first – you need to actually have a bounce house that you can rent out. Here are a few tips that can help making that first bounce house purchase a bit easier.

Tip #1: Make sure you know everything about the manufacturer before you make your first purchase. It is not enough to simply look at a bounce house unit and to think that it looks perfect for your business. You need to make sure that the manufacturer you are purchasing from is one that has a good reputation, and that the manufacturer is one that truly stands behind their products. Never look to simply purchase a unit without knowing anything about the manufacturer – this will always make you wind up in trouble.

Tip #2: Make sure you do a bit of research about the type of bounce houses that your competitors have before you make your first bounce house purchase. In order to separate yourself from your competitors you will want to have units that are different from the ones that they offer. If you have the exact same units that your competitors do people expect to be charged the same amount from both companies. If, however, you have different units from all the others you can charge what you need to charge without having to worry about their pricing.

Tip #3: It’s also very important that you start your business simply. You do not want to start your business with some of the most expensive, and ornate, bounce houses that you can find. Stay with simple, high quality, high volume bounce houses that can allow a maximum amount of people while also standing up to the test of time.

Follow these tips and you should find that it is much easier to locate the perfect bounce houses to start your very own bounce house rental business.

Bringing People In To Your Commercial Moonbounce Business

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : July 25th, 2013 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

MoonbounceEvery once in a while a person who owns a bounce house rental business may find that they are in some financial difficulties. Even if you follow all of the marketing strategies you have ever read there is always a chance that something may go wrong and you might not have the ability to handle the financial difficulties. At this point in time many business owners think about bringing in a partner – someone to help them handle the stress, and the financial issues, of the business. But is bringing someone into your commercial moonbounce business a good idea?

Think Carefully

On paper it sounds great – find someone that you trust and ask them to help you with all of your financial issues by becoming a partner in the business. You have someone to help shoulder the stress and you’ll have someone to help you with financial needs. But what you need to remember is that if you bring someone in to your business they not only get to share the stress, they get to share the rewards as well. Whenever you bring a new person into your business you have someone who is going to want to input their ideas and their marketing schemes as well. Can you handle that?

If you think you can handle another person having as much say as you do in your business than bringing in a second person may be a good idea. If, however, you are like most business owners and you like to have your ideas be the only ones that are utilized, and your decisions be the only ones that count, bringing in a second person to help run your commercial moonbounce business might not be a good idea. If you don’t want to bring someone else into your business, and you are still dealing with financial issues, you might want to think about hiring a business manager.

A business manager is the perfect person to help you deal with the financial issues in your business while still allowing you to maintain thorough control of the business. There are many business managers available who make their living helping businesses succeed so that they can reap a little bit of a profit.

What to Tell People Who Ask About Moon Bounce Business

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : July 20th, 2013 Date Updated : May 29th, 2018

Moon BounceIf you own a bounce house rental business it is very likely that you will get tons of questions from interested people about your business. This is especially true if your bounce house business is successful. One mistake that many bounce house business owners make is in refusing to speak with anyone who has questions about their business. By refusing to speak to people about your business you are pushing interested people away, and that is never good. You have to think of everyone that you be as a potential client, even if they are asking questions about your work. So what, then, do you say to these people?

Be Polite and Vague

The best tips that anyone can give you on how to handle these people is to be polite and vague. Be polite and answer all of the questions that they have in a nice manner. Never act as though you are to busy to speak with them or, if you happen to be very busy at the moment they try to speak with you, politely explain that you would love to talk with them but that you were a little busy at the moment and that they should either call your phone number, send you an email, or come speak to you an hour or so. This gives you the opportunity to give your business card to someone which can then lead to more business.

Even though it is only polite to answer everyone who asks you questions about your business it does not mean that you need to come clear about all of your secrets. It is no big deal, for instance, to explain where someone can find moon bounces for sale as you simply need to Google this phrase to uncover all sorts of different locations where you can buy them. It is not, however, a good idea to give all of your marketing secrets away. If someone wants to start their own business, purchasing moon bounces for sale and rent in them, it is up to them to learn how to market their business successfully. Always be polite and remember that there are always people watching how you interact with others.

Tips for Making Your Waterslide Popular

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : July 18th, 2013 Date Updated : May 29th, 2018

WaterslideYou’ve decided that it’s time to add a commercial inflatable waterslide to your arsenal of inflatable units but you are not sure how to market it. When people get to know your business for offering a specific type of product it can often be hard to help them realize that you have a brand-new type of product available for their use. When it comes to bounce house rental businesses the first thing that everyone knows your business for is, of course, bounce houses. How, then, do you help them learn about the brand-new products, like an inflatable waterslide, that you are offering?

Free!

One of the fastest ways to help your clients know about the new products you have is to offer them for free. Yes, the idea of offering something for free can be extremely scary to most business people but you will find that if it is done correctly you will be able to actually make a great deal of money. So how would you offer the waterslide for free? One option is to hook up with a nonprofit organization that happens to be having a benefit in the near future. Offer to allow them to use your waterslide for free provided that you are able to pass out information about your business at the event. Most nonprofit organizations will jump on a chance to use anything for free, especially if they know it is something that is going to attract people to the event.

Blast It!

Another option to get the world to know about your new commercial inflatable waterslide is to blast the information on social media. Social media has become the fastest, and easiest, way to inform clients about all sorts of things, especially new product. Go to your social media sites, like Facebook and Twitter, and post pictures and videos of the new unit in use. Offer a discount for the first 5 or 10 people to rent the unit and before you know it you will have all sorts of calls about people requesting information on your waterslide. Remember: sometimes offering a new item for free, and making a huge deal of it on social media, is the best way to get the world to know about your new products.
