To Do or Not To Do

Regular Sports ArenaStarting your own commercial bounce house business can be extremely intimidating, but here are a few simple to do’s, or not to do’s, that will help to increase the rentals for your business.

  1. Make sure you know all of the regulations in your state and in your city. If you have a commercial business it is vitally important that you know about all of the state and city regulations before you even look at wholesale moonwalk sales websites. By knowing all of the regulations before you make a purchase you can go into your business knowing that everything is legal.
  2. Make a budget. Every business needs to have a budget in order to run profitably. You not only need to have a budget for your initial bounce house purchases, you also need to have an operating budget as well. If you have a difficult time coming up with a budget speak with an accountant that you trust and have them help you put together a budget.
  3. Always look for quality. If you purchase a substandard inflatable bounce house you will find that your customers are not happy. When you look at wholesale moonwalk sales websites it is important to look for quality. Not only will these units impress your customers more, they are also designed to last a great deal longer as well.
  4. Get insurance. Insurance is one of the most important things you can get when you start a bounce house rental business. Insurance protects your business, your family, and all of the customers who rent from you. Aside from having great inflatable units, insurance is the most important thing you need.
  5. Check out your competition. Before you make a purchase it is important that you know what competition you have in your neighborhood. If you live in an area that is already overly saturated with inflatable rental businesses than this type of business may not be the most profitable one you can start. If, however, you find only a few rental businesses in the area you will know not only who your competition is you also know how much you should charge.
  6. Try to stay with gender-neutral units. Yes, themed bounce house units are very cute but it is not likely that they are going to rent quickly. Gender-neutral units, like colorful castles, rent much more quickly and can make you much more money in the long run.

Selling Your Commercial Moonwalks

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : May 12th, 2013 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Candy MoonwalkThere are times when you’re ready to purchase a brand new moonwalk to help your business, but, at the same time, there are situations in which it’s time for you to sell some of your older moonwalks. Buying moonwalks is extremely easy, but many business owners don’t realize that selling their moonwalks can be much more difficult. Why don’t people automatically jump to purchase one when they see a commercial moonwalk for sale?

Why They Don’t Bite

Most bounce house business owners would jump to purchase a bounce house that they see for sale, especially when it’s a good sale. Why, then, do most people tend to avoid purchasing a commercial moonwalk for sale from you? One of the biggest reasons is because they aren’t sure if they are going to be able to trust the unit that they purchase from you. Many people see “used” and believe that it is equivalent to “junk”. It’s important, if you want to sell your unit, to make sure that the interested parties know that the unit is coming from a professional business. When people know that the unit is coming from a professional they are much more likely to believe that the unit is in a better condition, which it likely will be.

Another reason why people are tempted to not purchase a used unit is simply because they are not sure what they are going to do with it! The good news is that you can easily demonstrate to people how easy it is to have fun with the unit that you are selling. Before you put the unit up for sale all you need to do is take a video of the unit! But how can you sell the unit with a video?

In today’s world almost everything is digital which is definitely a plus when it comes to selling an inflatable unit. The fact that you have the ability to sell something digitally allows you to show your prospective buyers exactly how amazing the unit is. Give them ideas of how they can use the unit – how they can invite friends and family over to jump around on the bounce house. It is very easy to sell your old commercial units, as long as you help people to realize exactly how much fun, and how safe, these units can truly be.

Defending a Social Media Attack on Your Business

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : February 7th, 2013 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Palm House MoonwalkOne of the great things about today’s modern society is the fact that it is easier than ever before to get your business noted. Thanks to websites like Facebook and Twitter it is now easier than ever before to get thousands of people to notice your website in only a few short days. Unfortunately with the good always comes the bad, and when it comes to social media the bad is basically when someone decides to attack your business using social media. You may find that they leave negative comments on Facebook, or that they blast your business on Twitter. The last thing you likely thought about when you were looking for a commercial moonwalk for sale was how you were going to handle situations like this.

Identifying the Issue

The first thing you need to do whenever anyone is attacking your business on a social media website is to identify the issue. You first need to figure out if the person that is attacking you has a legitimate reason to be upset or not. For instance, a client who did not receive the bounce house that they paid to rent on time may have a legitimate reason to be upset with your business. A competitor who is simply trying to make you look bad in front of other potential customers, however, does not. It is up to you to first make sure that you accurately identify the issue so that you are able to handle it appropriately.

If the person leaving bad comments has a legitimate reason to be upset, it is up to you as a business owner to soothe them. There are many different ways you can do so, and the answer as to how you will soothe each customer depends upon a number of different things. The most important thing when it comes to social media is to make sure that you answer the customer in the very same public forum that they are using to contact you, such as Facebook or Twitter. Answer them publicly so that other potential clients can see that you do take your business, and your clients happiness, seriously.

However, if the person leaving bad comments is simply trying to make you look bad and has their own commercial moonwalk for sale, there are two different approaches you can take: to react or not. If you react make sure you do so in a polite way. You can be a bit with if you want, but make sure you give a businesslike reaction. Many business owners, however, choose to ignore, or simply delete, negative comments that have no reason to be on their social media page. Just make sure that if you do simply delete the comment you explain why you delete the comment to your other readers, i.e. you want to keep the page full of positivity.

The Internet Lending a Helping Hand

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

Blue and Green Mini CastleThe temptation of purchasing a moonwalk for sale is one that can be very difficult to resist. After all, not only are you able to own your own business but you are also able to do so by engaging in a fun, family-friendly activity. This is enough to make almost anyone believe that they, too, can become an entrepreneur. You will find many websites online, and will talk to many people, who will try to tell you that it is not a good idea to start a bounce house rental business in this economy. The truth, however, is that people can, and have been, making an inflatable rental business work for them, even in this economy.

There are many challenges that you will come across that you may not have anticipated when you first purchased your moonwalk for sale. Some of these challenges may be easy to overcome by using your ingenuity, but other challenges may have solutions that are just beyond your grasp. What do you do then? You could contact a competitor to ask them to help you to find a solution, but unless the competitor is someone that you have been on friendly terms with that might not be a good idea as you have to remember, they are your competitor.

One of the best solutions is to look online. Not only can you find a moonwalk for sale online, you can also find the help you need to run your business beautifully online as well. There are many different places you can go if you’re looking for help to run your business, starting with forms. Since the invention of chat, forums have become much more obsolete than they used to be but they are still the perfect place to go if you’re looking to get help. A forum is basically a location in which you can write down your question and can have people answer the question. One of the distinct advantages of using a forum is that you can ask your question whenever you have a minute of time. Unlike using a chat box, a forum allows you to post a question that people can answer at their convenience. This gives you not only a good chance of getting your question answered fairly rapidly, it also gives you a great opportunity to connect with people who are in the same business and who may have the answers that you need.

Should You Start Your Inflatables Business with a Partner

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : February 8th, 2011 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Pirate Bounce HouseWhen you think about taking on something as big as a new {endeavor|business}, it can be easy to think about adding a partner to your business. This is because it seems much less scary to share a business with someone than to go it alone. At least, you figure, if you {split|share} with someone, you’ll have someone there to celebrate with in the good times, and to help you in the bad times. When you start to {glance|look} at the sites that offer a moonwalk for sale, and you’re thinking about having a partner, here are a few things that you may want to think about before you decide whether you should go it alone or have a friend help.

Disagreements

One of the most well-known bands in the {nation|world} was The Beatles. Who would ever have thought that four men from England would be as popular as they were, and actually still are. But even this amazing band, which seemed to be unbreakable, was {ripped|pulled} apart. This is because any band, or {company|business}, that has partners is one that is susceptible to falling apart. If you decide to partner up with someone, your {company|business} is going to be at risk. At some point in time you’ll have a disagreement – maybe it’s when you’re talking about which moonwalk manufacturer to use, or maybe it will be when you’re trying to decide on pricing, or even further down the {way|road}. How you deal with disagreements is the important thing, and what will keep your business from disintegrating.

The Profits

If you have a partner, how you deal with {income|profits} is also going to be important. It’s easy to say, in the beginning, that you’ll split the profits 50/50, but what happens if one person does more work than the other? It can be {difficult|tricky} to split the profits, especially if your business grows large quickly. If you do {decide|opt} to have a partner, make sure that you have a contract that clearly states who makes how much money, as well as the amount of work that is required in order to earn a profit from the {company|business}.

It can be easy, when you’re looking at a moonwalk for sale, to think about {getting|having} a partner, but there is a huge difference between theory and reality, so make sure, before you clearly decide on having a partner work with you in your business, if it’s something you’re truly prepared to take on.
