Making a Video Commercial

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

V Roof Sea WorldFor many small bounce house business owners the idea of making a video commercial seems extremely daunting. The good news is that not only is it often very affordable to be able to advertise on the television now, especially if you advertise on local television channels, it is also very easy to create your own commercial. So how do you go about creating a commercial without spending tons of money?

The Basics

First you’ll need to know the basics – such as which stations you’re going to be advertising on and how much it is going to cost to create an ad. Ads run anywhere from 15 seconds to one minute, but it is likely that you’re going to want to start with a 15 or 30 second ad. You will need to find someone who is able to create a video for you. One affordable option is to look to college students who are studying video editing. You can pay them a small amount of money and it will give the student work experience while, at the same time, ensuring that you get a fairly decent commercial.

You also need to get the best units you purchased from the bounce house manufacturer’s that you have. You will want to showcase more than one unit, and if possible you will want to showcase a variety of units, including inflatable slides if you have them. You also need a large, flat area in which to set up in. Make sure that you have at least two or three different views you can see the bounce house units from so that the casual observer of the commercial will not realize that all the video was taken in the same location.

Once you have set up the inflatable’s you purchased from the bounce house manufacturer’s, it is time to get some children. If you have children, or if you have friends and family members who have children, ask them if they would like to be in a commercial. Make sure that parents sign model release contracts so that you are legally allowed to put the commercial online, and on the air, without being sued. Once you have everything setup it is time to sit back, relax, and watch as your commercial is filmed, edited, and then aired. Make sure you also air the commercial on your website, and through all your social media sites as well.

Someone to Have Your Back

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : March 17th, 2013 Date Updated : November 9th, 2018

Sport Arena inflatableThere are a lot of things you need to think about when you start your first bounce house rental business. There are also a lot of things that you will not know to think about. It is definitely true that it can be quite intimidating to start a bounce house rental business, but that doesn’t mean that it’s impossible. As thousands of successful business owners will tell you, there are a few things that you need to have in order if you truly want your business to succeed. One of the most important things you need actually has nothing to do with an inflatable bounce manufacturer or with business acumen.

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?

Firstly, friends are amazing at helping you to make those difficult decisions. Have a friend look over the inflatable bounce manufacturer website with you and give their opinion on the different bounce houses and inflatable slides that are available to purchase. The opinion of one person may be different than the opinion from another, and having another pair of eyes to look over the different bounce houses available with you can help you to make the right decision for your business. 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. A friend, however, is there for you to talk with about the stresses on the business. 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.

Leaving a Commercial Inflatable Slide at a Clients Home

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : October 28th, 2012 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

ATV Bounce HouseWhen you start a bounce house business, one of the last things that may be on your mind is figuring out what you were going to do with your bounce house if you are unable to go to the clients house to retrieve it. When you first start renting out things like commercial inflatable slides, you will likely have only a few units that you need to rent out. This means that should be easy for you to set up, and pick up, units on the very same day they are rented. As your business grows, however, you will likely find that it is much more difficult to set up an retrieve the unit on the same day. What happens then?

First, check with the client who rented the unit and ask them if it is possible for you to leave the unit at their home overnight. That is, if the weather is planning on being sunny, of course. If rain is expected, it is extremely important to make sure that you get the unit down and packed away so that he can stay dry even if that means recruiting some friends or family to help you. It is much better to have the commercial inflatable slide packed messily then to have it extremely soaked.

If the weather is going to be sunny and your customer has no problem with keeping the unit overnight, it’s important that you realize that you will need to give them some sort of a benefit for keeping the unit for you overnight. This can be as simple as allowing them to keep the unit inflated and to continue jumping on it through the night, and into the next morning if they would like to, without you charging them any extra amount. This can be great for families who have children as they will feel like they are able to truly get their money’s worth, and because they will feel this way it’s likely that they will tell their friends and family about your business getting you more potential customers. It’s almost impossible to run a large business alone, and if you get to the point when you are leaving the commercial inflatable slide at a customer’s house overnight more often than not, that may be a signal that you need to hire some help, which means that your business is growing and expanding and is definitely a good thing!

Separating Yourself From the Competition with Wholesale Inflatable Slides

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : September 9th, 2012 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

16-Wave-Blue-Marble-w-PoolAlmost all brand-new inflatable business rental owners worry about one thing when they start out: competition. The idea of starting your very own business can be intimidating enough, but when you add into it the possibility of having to deal with competition the intimidation level rises significantly. There are a few ways you can deal with competition if you are a bounce house rental business owner. The first way is to completely ignore it and to help that your services and your products will be good enough that you’ll be able to battle down the competition easily. Another way to handle competition in the bounce house world, however, is to offer something your competitor does not.

Slides

One thing that your competition may not offer their clients is an inflatable slide. Inflatable slides have become one of the hottest things in the inflatable world, and is now easier than ever before to find wholesale inflatable slides to purchase. One of the best things about wholesale inflatable slides is that you can find ones that are perfect for almost every age group and every occasion. There are slides that are perfect for younger children, as well as ones that are perfect for older teenagers and even adults. You can even find wholesale inflatable slides that you can transform into backyard waterslides.

Does this mean that you only need to offer inflatable slides to your clients? No. It is not a good idea to only rent out inflatable slides because the vast majority of your customers will be assuming that you also have bounce houses for rent as well. The combination of offering wholesale inflatable slides and bounce houses for rent tends to be the best way to maximize the amount of revenue you are able to earn. Not only will you be able to rent a bounce houses out for birthday parties, you will also be able to offer inflatable slides to your customers as well.

Is a Commercial Moonbounce Really That Much Better

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : March 27th, 2012 Date Updated : May 29th, 2018

V-Roof Castle IIAs technology has changed so, too, has the ability to create moonbounces and inflatable slides. Now they’re more affordable than ever, and because of this some manufacturers have decided to create home versions of the large commercial moonbounce products that you are currently renting out. Because of this you’ve likely seen a bunch of websites that try to talk parents into purchasing their very own moonbounces, but the jump houses that these other manufacturers sell are not the same type of jump houses that you rent out. It’s important that your clients also recognize that there is a difference between a commercial moonbounce and the at-home version.

The Material

What is the biggest difference between the commercial moonbounce and the at-home variation of the same thing? The material that it is made out of. A commercial moonbounce is made of a high quality polymer that is designed to withstand a variety of different factors, including temperature, inclement weather, and a lot of foot and bouncing damage. It is designed to be cleanable and to last for a very long time. Even the sewing on a commercial moonbounce is designed to be much more sturdy and thorough and to last for a long time.

In contrast you will find that most at-home bounce houses that are sold are made of a lightweight plastic material that is not able to hold up for a long time. If just one or two children are jumping on it occasionally it should be fine, but if you have a large birthday party chances are pretty good that the lighter weight product will take a beating and will come out worse for the wear. The seams are also not designed to be as sturdy and can rip apart fairly easily in most at-home bounce houses, which is why they all come with patches.

The Blower

Another big difference between the commercial moonbounce and the at-home version is the blower. The blower that comes with a commercial version is designed to blow for as long as you want it to and many are actually very “green”. When it comes to an at-home moonbounce, however, the blower is not created to be as strong or to last as long as the commercial version. Parents should feel as though they can purchase their own moonbounce if they would like, but they should know that there is a huge difference between a commercial moonbounce and the at-home version.
