What If Your Bounce House Breaks Before an Event

The motto of any business owner, and the Boy Scouts of America of course, is to be prepared. Unfortunately, far too often brand-new business owners do not realize exactly what being prepared means and wind up in over their head. For instance, what happens if you have an event on Saturday and set up the unit for a party on Friday only to discover that there is a huge hole in your inflatable and that it will not be able to be used for the event?

Solutions

There are a few different solutions to this problem. The first solution is to make sure you purchase enough inflatables for sale to have one as a constant backup. This unit should only be pulled out when necessary and is the perfect way to help you to avoid this type of sticky situation. But what do you do if you did not think ahead and have not purchased an extra bounce house unit?

The first option is to contact the client and to explain the situation while assuring them that you offer them a refund. Now, many business owners believe that simply offering a refund is enough to make the clients happy but the truth of the matter is when you are dealing with parents who were looking forward to using the bounce house to help distract the children during a party or event, simply offering a refund is not enough. Instead of just offering a refund you may want to contact another local bounce house business owner.

When there is simply not enough time to purchase new inflatables for sale to help cover your sticky situation, asking another local business owner to help may be the best idea. Explain to the business owner that you are in dire need of a unit and that you will pay full price for the unit – even if this means paying money out of your own pocket. It is never fun to pay out of your own pocket but it is much better to lose a bit of money than to lose one client, and therefore potentially thousands of clients, for good. Remember: the best option is to always have a backup inflatable unit ready to go just in case the unthinkable happens.

Tips for Making Your Waterslide Popular

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : July 18th, 2013 Date Updated : May 29th, 2018

WaterslideYou’ve decided that it’s time to add a commercial inflatable waterslide to your arsenal of inflatable units but you are not sure how to market it. When people get to know your business for offering a specific type of product it can often be hard to help them realize that you have a brand-new type of product available for their use. When it comes to bounce house rental businesses the first thing that everyone knows your business for is, of course, bounce houses. How, then, do you help them learn about the brand-new products, like an inflatable waterslide, that you are offering?

Free!

One of the fastest ways to help your clients know about the new products you have is to offer them for free. Yes, the idea of offering something for free can be extremely scary to most business people but you will find that if it is done correctly you will be able to actually make a great deal of money. So how would you offer the waterslide for free? One option is to hook up with a nonprofit organization that happens to be having a benefit in the near future. Offer to allow them to use your waterslide for free provided that you are able to pass out information about your business at the event. Most nonprofit organizations will jump on a chance to use anything for free, especially if they know it is something that is going to attract people to the event.

Blast It!

Another option to get the world to know about your new commercial inflatable waterslide is to blast the information on social media. Social media has become the fastest, and easiest, way to inform clients about all sorts of things, especially new product. Go to your social media sites, like Facebook and Twitter, and post pictures and videos of the new unit in use. Offer a discount for the first 5 or 10 people to rent the unit and before you know it you will have all sorts of calls about people requesting information on your waterslide. Remember: sometimes offering a new item for free, and making a huge deal of it on social media, is the best way to get the world to know about your new products.

Should You Expand to an Indoor Bounce House Business

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : July 13th, 2013 Date Updated : May 29th, 2018

Bounce HouseWhen you start an inflatable bounce house rental business your main concern, at least at first, is trying to get new clients to find your website. Once they have found your website, and thus your business, you can begin to start renting out your units. If you play your cards correctly and do your research you should be able to expand your business significantly. But what do you do once you have expanded your business to the point that you can live off of the money you make from your bounce house business alone? One option is to expand into an indoor bounce house business.

This type of business is one that is becoming extremely popular, especially in urban areas. Often, and city areas, families do not rent an inflatable bounce house for a birthday party because they have nowhere to put it. This is extremely common and is a problem that many bounce house rental business owners run into. How do you help these clients out? By having your own location available for your use.

Some rental business owners simply purchase a large warehouse that they then rent out as necessary to their clients or to others who wish to use the space. Other owners, however, take things a step further and set up an indoor bounce house business. This type of business requires that you leave the unit inflated during your operating hours and that you charge people to come in to your business and to use the units for a specified amount of time.

This type of business can be a great way to expand your already thriving rental business but there are some things you should know. First of all, you need to remember that you will have overhead if you have an indoor business. You need to be able to make enough money to pay the rent on the space and their often specific types of paperwork you will need to have done in order to run this type of business in your city or town.

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.

Making Email Marketing Work

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : July 3rd, 2013 Date Updated : May 29th, 2018

Bounce HouseIt used to be the direct marketing was the way to go when it came to advertising your business. Direct marketing was all about creating flyers that are then sent out to a massive amount of people at one time. Now, however, direct marketing is out and email marketing is in. One of the best ways to make sure that your inflatable moonwalks are rented on a regular basis is to learn how to make email marketing work for you. Here are a few tips that will help to make your email marketing much more productive.

Options to Try

There are a large number of different options that you can try when it comes to getting a result from your email marketing campaigns. For starters it is a good idea to make sure that you send out an email newsletter on a regular basis. Once a week would likely be too frequently for a bounce house rental business, but sending out an email newsletter once a month likely will not be. Make sure you include important information in these newsletters such as the new units your purchased, safety tips, ideas on where to find locations to set up bounce houses, and so on. Filling your email newsletters full of fluff is likely not going to net you any new business, but putting useful information in the email likely will.

It is also a good idea to try to keep record of the birthdays of your clients. If, for instance, you were to rent out one of your inflatable moonwalks to Johnny’s parents for his birthday you can then marked down the birthday in your calendar and can send Johnny’s parents an email offering them a significant discount to rent one of your units while, at the same time, remarking that you want to help make Johnny’s birthday great.

By utilizing email marketing correctly you will find that your business gets tons of attention and that your website gets more hits than you ever thought it would. Just make sure you do not use email marketing to present filler pieces to your clientele but that you use it to offer great deals and exciting information to everyone on your list.
