There are many things that you have to know in order to run your own business – so many, in fact, that quite often people get very frustrated when they start to realize that they don’t know as much as they need to in order to run an business effortlessly. It’s not enough to purchase a commercial moonbounce and to simply hope that people are going to rent your bounce house, you have to get your name out there so that they know exactly who you are and what you’re offering. This is much more difficult to do than many people think, so it makes sense that a lot of new business owners get extremely frustrated. If you are looking to get the name of your bounce house rental business out there, try hosting, or helping out with, a fundraiser for a local charity!
Fundraisers are a great way to get the name of your business out there. Remember: you won’t make money at a fundraiser, as you’ll be donating your services and your commercial moonbounce, but you will get a huge amount of exposure, especially if the event is covered by the local news source. But how do you find a local charity who would be interested in using a commercial moonbounce to help them to raise money?
Start at your local community center. Community centers often have a great deal of information available about charity fundraising events that are going to be going on soon. Another place to look is local schools or churches. These places are non-profit organizations who often hold fundraisers, and what goes better with a commercial moonbounce than children?
Once you have found a few local charity organizations it’s time to contact them. Look online to see if they have a website, or a Facebook page, and send them an email introducing yourself. Explain who you are and what you have to offer, and make sure that they understand, from the very start of the email, that you are offering your services for free. Do not explain that you’re looking for a way to expand your business, but merely explain that you want to help them to raise money for their organization. Fundraisers are a great way to get the name of your business known in a very rapid manner.
