It may have been a very daunting task to start your own moonbounce business, but once you have things up and running smoothly you will start to feel a bit of relief. Yes, you will likely still be working hard and there may still be some stresses that frustrate you, but you will likely be very proud of everything you have accomplished. Unfortunately, other people are going to notice your success. Other bounce house rental businesses may try to undercut your price is, and you may have to deal with a lot more work than you’re ready for, but one thing that you will definitely have to deal with is people asking you how they can start their own bounce house rental business. What do you tell them?
It is human nature for people to see another succeed and to ask them how they managed to do so, especially in today’s turbulent economic times. This can be very difficult for some business owners, as they aren’t quite sure how they should answer. For instance, if the person asking you about starting their own rental business lives in your area, how can you be sure they are going to become competition that you will have to deal with?
One thing you’ll find is that it is best to be very straightforward, and very friendly, to these people. Chances that they will find a moonbounce manufacturer to purchase their own bounce house from are pretty slim, and they are still potential customers which means that you need to be as polite as you possibly can. There are a few ways you can handle the situation, the first is to explain to them that you are very busy right now, but that you would be more than happy to answer any questions they have if they were to contact you via e-mail. This not only gets you out of answering the question immediately, it also gives you an excuse to get out your business card.
Another option is to point them towards a moonbounce manufacturer and their website and to explain that there is information on the website that will help them to get started. The best option, however, is to remain polite and to keep your answers short. Never be afraid to explain that you are very busy and that you would be more than happy to help them when you have a bit more time. This gives you the chance to make sure you carefully word your response.
