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.

The Growing Popularity of Moonbounces

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : June 22nd, 2012 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Pink Purple Arch CastleDo you know about the history of the bounce house? Believe it or not, the first moon bounce was designed in 1959 when a man named John Scurlock decided to try to create an inflatable cover for tennis court. He was frustrated with how much time it took to cover tennis court and thought that some sort of inflatable item would be faster and much easier. The inflatable cover worked, but he realized that his employees were having more fun jumping around on the cover than anything else. That is when he decided to create his own company and to become the first person to offer a moonbounce for sale.

Growing Popularity

In the 1960s, bounce houses were considered something of a novelty. Back then it was strange to see someone have a bounce house at a child’s birthday party. As time has gone on, however, inflatable units have become more and more popular, and now if you do not have a bounce house at your child’s birthday party, you will have a lot of very disappointed children. Even charitable organizations are often on the lookout for a moonbounce for sale that they can use for fundraising opportunities.

Not only can you locate a moonbounce for sale through an inflatable manufacturer, you can also find these types of units for sale, and for rent, often at small hardware stores and party rental stores. This can make it tricky for someone who owns a bounce house rental business, but as long as you keep your business fresh and focus on customer service your business should be absolutely fine.

Why have these units become so popular? That is actually a very good question, but what it boils down to is the simple fact that children love to be able to jump around and to basically raise havoc without getting in trouble for it. And actuality, children need to be able to release their energy in a safe way on a regular basis. So believe it or not, the bounce house rental business that you own is not only a way to earn profitable living, it is also a way to help parents give their children a wonderful time.

Dealing with Rising Gas Prices

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : May 13th, 2012 Date Updated : May 29th, 2018

River Falls SlideHave the prices at the local gas pumps made you run scared? If so, you’re not alone. Everyone is commenting on how high the gas prices are, both in person and in social media, but unfortunately there is not much we can do to lower the price at the pumps. You may not have thought, when you purchased your moonbounce for sale, that you would have to worry about how the rising gas prices would affect your business. Unfortunately, the moonbounce rental business is a service industry business, which means that you need to travel in order to take care of your clients.

What Should You Do?

How far you’re going to have to travel on a regular basis depends on the type of area you live in. Those who live in rural areas will likely have to travel further more regularly than those who live in urban areas. Those who live in urban areas, however, often have to deal with a lot of stop and go traffic which can be painful on the gas tank as well. So how do you handle rising gas prices without taking the costs out on your customers?

There are a few things that you can do. First, you can raise your prices a little. Raising the price of your unit even $10-$20 will help to take the sting out of filling up your gas tank, and generally this amount is not something that will scare off most customers. Another thing you can do is to purchase a gas friendly vehicle. If you currently driving around a large truck the guzzles gas, think about purchasing something a bit smaller that is still strong enough to haul your trailer. You may have noticed when you purchased the moonbounce for sale that you had to pay fairly high shipping fees, while this is annoying, the reason the shipping fees were likely so high is because the unit had to be shipped on an airplane. Don’t pass this charge onto your customers as it does not directly impact them.

If you’re really struggling with the high price of gas, consider charging a specific extra fee for those who live outside of your designated zone. Make sure the distance that you choose is a reasonable distance, such as 50 miles, and explain on your website that if your client lives further than that distance from your distribution center, you will need to charge an extra amount. If you are upfront about this charge, customers should not complain.
