When you work at a “normal” job you can relax the moment you get home. Once you walk to the doors of your very own castle you can take your shoes off, get into your comfy close, and forget, if you’d like, that you are employed. When you own a business, however, there is very little downtime. Yes, there will be plenty of hours in which you can sit back and watch a movie, but you have to constantly be available for your business, and if your business renting out bounce houses, it is required that you be available 24 hours a day. But how can you be available for your business without going completely insane?
It is important to remember that you did not purchase the commercial inflatables for sale in order to have them sit on your lawn and look pretty. You purchase them in order to make money, and the only way you can make money is if you are able to rent them out. What do you do if you contacted business and they do not contact you back within 24 hours? You find another business. Bounce house rental businesses have become very popular in the past 10 years and chances are if someone contacts you and you do not contact them back within a reasonable amount of time they’re going to find someone who will. That is why it’s important to use modern technology to help you to stay connected and available at all times.
Your cell phone is going to become your best friend. Yes, cell phones are fun for playing games on and are great for texting friends, but what you may not realize is that they are the business person’s best friend. A cell phone allows you to answer back a client, either via phone or email, at any hour of the day. You can even use today’s high-quality cell phones to look at commercial inflatables for sale when you get a moment during your busy day. Make sure your cell phone number is on all of your business cards and is clearly visible on your website and all the social media pages as well.
Tablets are also a great way to keep in touch with your business. Because of their size tablets are able to be carried just about anywhere, and thankfully most places have wireless Internet access as well allowing you to be able to keep in touch with your customers, and to monitor your social media sites, anywhere you go.
