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.

Keeping Your Cool with Clients

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : July 9th, 2013 Date Updated : May 29th, 2018

Bounce HouseIt is inevitable that at some point in time you are going to become frustrated with one of your clients. Not every client is perfect – in fact, many of them are self-entitled people who do not think, or care, about your side of the story. Some people have a natural ability to help calm clientele down. There are even those who seem to be born with a silver tongue into can switch any situation into one that benefits them. There are also those, however, who have a very difficult time keeping their cool with unruly clientele. Here are a few tips that can help you to remain calm when you’re dealing with someone who frustrates you.

First it is important to remember that they are the people paying your paycheck and not just renting a bounce house . When you work for other people you know that no matter how frustrated you are at your boss there is only so much you can say without getting into serious trouble. Your boss is the person who pays your paycheck, and your clients are the people who pay your paycheck as well. Think of your client as your boss and you may be able to calm down just that much quicker.

If you have an issue with the inflatable bounce house manufacturer that you purchased your unit from you may find it difficult to remain calm. While it is okay to get a little upset at an inflatable bounce house manufacturer, because you are the one paying them, it is not okay to get really upset at your clientele unless there is a very good reason. Try to put yourself in their shoes. It is likely that they are going through a situation where they are frustrated, tired, and potentially even financially despondent. When you have those types of days aren’t you a bit upset too? Remember that your clientele is not just your paycheck but they are also real people who are likely taking all of their frustrations that they have built up over the past few days out on you. Listen to them – most people who are complaining simply want someone who is willing to listen to them. Once you listen to them, apologize for any mistakes you have made an always remain calm when explaining the situation that your client is in and how you can help.

Thinking of Advertising in the Yellow Pages

Bounce HouseRemember the days when you would want to find the phone number for business and your mother would yell you to simply look in the Yellow Pages? Those days are long gone. Now, if you want to find the phone number for a business the first place you are likely going to look is the Internet. Why, then, are bounce house rental business owners still thinking of advertising in the Yellow Pages? Is it a good idea, or should you completely avoid this advertising opportunity?

Yellow Page Advertising

In order to determine if advertising in the Yellow Pages is going to help you to rent out the commercial bounce houses for sale you purchased you first need to figure out how many people actually use the Yellow Pages. A recent survey completed about the Yellow Pages shows that 75% of those who completed the survey never use the Yellow Pages to help them to find information about a local business. 14% of the people surveyed said that they use the Yellow Pages once a year, but only a small 3% said they use the Yellow Pages five or more times a year in order to find information about local businesses.

Those are definitely not impressive numbers and, from an advertising standpoint, it is not a very smart idea to invest your money in the Yellow Pages. In doing so you are excluding 75% of potential customers. How, then, can you advertise the bounce house rental business that you own effectively?

Cyber Advertising

Cyber advertising is definitely where it is at. If you want to make sure that your investment actually gets you a return you will need to look to the cyber world for help. It is not likely that you will rent out the commercial bounce houses for sale that you have purchased unless you use the Internet to help you to do so. Word-of-mouth is no longer a reliable means for advertising – instead you need to spend your time, and your money, ensuring that your website is up to par and that it is as optimized as it can possibly be. There are plenty of professional businesses that get paid to do this type of work so if you are unsure what to do try contacting one of these professional businesses and they will be able to outline a strategy that will help you to make more money.

You Get What You Pay For

Bounce HouseEvery year hundreds of people purchase inflatable bounce houses in order to start their very own bounce house rental business. It is true that this can be a very lucrative type of business, especially for people who are not experienced in owning a business. But if you look at the facts you will see that many of these first-time business owners windup shutting their doors within only a few short years. One of the biggest mistakes these beginner business owners make is in purchasing equipment that is not up to par. Remember: you get what you pay for.

The Right Equipment

In order to make sure that your business has a chance of surviving you will need to first in sure that you purchase bounce houses that are high quality enough that they can be considered commercial bounce houses. There are many different inflatable bounce manufacturer websites you will find online, and most of them can make it seem like it is very cheap to purchase a bounce house. The truth of the matter, however, is that it is not. If you have found a bounce house that is under $600 is very likely that the unit you are looking at is either a used unit that has seen better days, or that it is a unit designed for home use only.

Home use bounce house units are not designed to stand up to the rigorous activity that a commercial bounce house unit is. When you rent out your bounce house units you will find that children will do some serious damage to them – in fact, they are supposed to. It is never gentle to bounce around on something and that is what these units are designed to do, that is why getting a high quality, strong, weather resistant commercial bounce house unit from an inflatable bounce manufacturer is important.

Yes, you will find that you have to pay quite a bit more in order to purchase a commercial bounce house unit – but as we said above you get what you pay for. If you spend only $600 to purchase a unit and rented out you will quickly find that you need to purchase another unit as the first unit will likely break down within only a few short months.

A Friend in Need

So what is one of those things that you need to have in order to make sure that your business is successful? Believe it or not the answer is a friend. It doesn’t matter if you are one of the smartest business people in the world – unless you have someone who can speak with you honestly and who can give you true feedback, both positive and negative, your business is much more likely to fail. But why do you need a friend in order to make sure that your business succeed?

Friends are also extremely helpful when it comes to managing stress. Yes, running a bounce house business can be very stressful, especially if this is the first business you have ever owned.

Not only can they help you to alleviate the stress, they may have some great ideas to help you make your business run more smoothly. And finally, once you get to the point we need to hire employees, hiring a friend is often a much more safe bet that hiring a stranger.
