Crayon Moonwalk PlaylandMany people dream of a life where they can operate their own business. There are many business opportunities available to entrepreneurs, and inflatables rental businesses represent a potentially lucrative venture. Opening and managing a rental operation for moonwalks, bouncers, and slides can help make those dreams come true. With a commitment to hard work and a few tips, inflatables rental businesses can create a comfortable lifestyle, driving profits and ensuring the success of your new business operation. In this guide, we will explore the foundations of a successful bounce house rental business, helping you to make money in your new business venture.

Attracting New Customers

All too often, new business owners believe that if they start a business, clients will come to them naturally. While this can be true in some cases, the vast majority of new business owners will need to apply several proven techniques to attract customers, helping the new operation to reach profitability. In the world of inflatables rental, nothing beats word-of-mouth advertising. This can be achieved in a cost-effective manner, using both in-person and social media methods to attract a steady stream of new customers.

Every customer interaction represents an opportunity to “spread the word” about your new business. Ask your customers to recommend your operation to their friends and family; this can help create interest in your rental venture without the expenses and hassle of traditional advertising.

Creating social media profiles on platforms like YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook are also inexpensive and effective ways of building interest, bringing customers to your company and creating connections with a wide audience. No matter if you are a small operation with a handful of bounce houses to rent or a company that dreams big with a huge inflatable inventory, social media is a great way to build brand awareness.

The key to leverage social media is to not only create profiles on these platforms but to update them with company news and information on a regular basis. With engaging posts, your fans are far more likely to share your company’s profiles with their friends, who may then become your customers.

Retaining Customers

Attracting a steady stream of new customers is only half of the battle for new business owners; retaining them and building brand loyalty is the other. In numerous business studies, it has been shown that repeat customers account for a sizeable percentage of a given company’s business, so it is critical that you reinforce the customer relationship.

How can a new business owner create loyalty? There are several possible solutions, but the core of this approach is to deliver outstanding service. Customer service is a dying art across industries, but the most successful companies put their focus on this vital part of the business model. Excellent customer service practices help to ensure that customers will return to you time and again, and they will also recommend your services to their peers. Providing incentives for repeat customers is another tactic to explore; providing a small discount for these valuable customers can also help keep them coming back.

Stick with It!

Making money with an inflatables rental business is not an overnight success story, but it is important for new business owners to remember that through hard work, customer service, and cost-effective advertising, it is possible to shape your business future.

With these tips, you will gain new customers while forging long-term relationships with existing customers. This ensures continued profitability for your bounce house rental operation.

Getting Organized Before You Start Your Moonbounce Business

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : January 1st, 2013 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Check out different bounce house manufacturer websites in order to get a good idea of exactly how much money you will need to purchase one moonbounce unit.

Snowy Plans for your Moonbounce

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : September 26th, 2012 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Blue Castle with PanelBounce house rental business owners who live in states like Michigan, Vermont, or New Hampshire all tend to be a little bit jealous of moonbounce business owners who live in warm climates like Florida and California, and this is because people who live in the warm climates often have a much easier time not only renting their moonbounce units during the winter, but also storing them. If you live in a warm climate the only thing you will need to do in order to properly store your inflatable unit is to put it in a clean, dry area. If, however, you live in a colder climate you will find that you have a unique set of challenges in store for you.

Welcoming the Snow

Quite often business owners who have a moonbounce rental business in a place like Colorado tends to look forward to the summer months when they know they will be able to rent their units out regularly. And, interestingly enough, even though many times people who live in these climates have to deal with five or six months of winter they tend to do a great deal of business as they often do not have to deal with much competition. Then the challenge as to where to store the unit in the winter arises. Unlike a business owner who lives in a warm state, a business owner who lives in a place where snow will accumulate cannot simply leave your unit out in the shed and hope that it will be okay. Doing so is definitely not a good idea.

If you leave a moonbounce unit in an area like a cold shed you will be exposing your unit to the elements. Even if the unit does not get covered in snow, the extreme change in temperatures is enough to weekend, and potentially damage, the material that the unit is made out of. This can mean having to deal with many rips, and can even transform your once safe moonbounce unit into something very dangerous. If you do live in a cold climate you need to make sure that you store your unit in an area that is room temperature and dry. Try to make sure that it is not exposed to temperatures below 60°. This may require finding a place in your home to store the unit. And while that can be frustrating, dealing with the aftereffects of severe climate changes can be much more annoying than simply finding a place to put your unit in your home during the winter months.

Helping Children Who Are Scared Of Bounce Houses

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : June 26th, 2012 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Regular Arch CastleAs bounce house rental business owners, you would like to believe that every child absolutely adores bounce houses. While it’s true that most children do love bounce houses, there actually a large percentage of children who are very scared of them. Younger children tend to be nervous around bounce houses simply because they are so large and because the pump that is used to inflate the house, and to keep inflated, tends to be allowed. But even a moonbounce manufacturer will tell you that there are a certain number of kids who are scared of a bounce house even when they become old enough to understand what the noise is all about.

Getting Over a Fear

In most cases you will be inflating the unit at your client house and leaving it there to be enjoyed, but there will be some cases in which you will be with the bounce house the entire time is being used. There are a few things you can do if you happen to find a child who is nervous about the bounce house but who really wants to go on. First, it’s important to try to figure out why the child is scared of the bounce house. Some children are nervous because of the noise, some children are scared because of the amount of children party on the house, and some kids are scared of being in an enclosed area. Fortunately, it’s fairly easy to help a child over these fears once you know what the problem is.

If the child is scared of the noise that comes from the blower, explain to them that the moonbounce manufacturer created the blower especially for the bounce house so that it can be blown up the whole time that it is being used. Show them the unit and, if you can, let them turn off and on quickly. If the child is scared of being mixed in with a bunch of other children, when the time is right ask the other children to exit the bounce house and allow the younger child to go in by themselves, or with a parent. Often they’ll find themselves so enthralled with the bounce house they will have no problem going back in with their peers. If the child is scared of being enclosed in the bounce house, explain to them that the moonbounce manufacturer created a Velcro closure in the front of the unit in order to keep everyone safe. Show them that they can see through the mesh and hopefully they should calm down enough to give the bounce house try.
