how outdoor leisure and party businesses can make more money in the winter and other off-peak times
Outdoor attractions, including theme parks, ice
Cream shop, owner of farm attractions, etc. )
How do they get more bookings in the winter, as traditionally this is the time to earn and make the lowest profits compared to summer.
In addition, Christmas will be very profitable in the case of careful planning.
This article is divided into two parts.
The first part will refer to the idea of adding bookings to new and existing customers, while the second part will look at additional revenue sources for the winter months.
Part 1: some ideas for adding bookings are as follows it is a very good idea to have some form of email capture form and other forms of communication on your website (
Offline and online)
Therefore, you can collect the customer\'s email address throughout the year. (
You might want to give them an incentive. g.
Small discounts on rent or ticket prices sound a lot, but remember the customer\'s \"lifetime value \"! ).
Once you have their email address, you can send them monthly or quarterly newsletters so they will always remember your business.
When booking is quieter
For example, you can offer special rewards in winter. g.
Hire two people for 1, or buy a ticket and get one for free.
If you can enter the lobby and your inflatable or outdoor attractions business can be there for the time being, then you can tell all your customers that there is no need to stop playing in cold and humid weather!
When collecting the customer\'s email address, you always tell them that you will never spam them and that you will never pass their email address to a third party, which is very important --
My email capture software uses Aweber.
For inflatable rental companies, please contact all administrators in the local community hall.
Explain what you have done and ask if they can recommend your service to the users in the lobby.
Maybe tell them you will donate to the lobby.
Also, ask if they allow you to post a small ad on the hall notice --board -
More about the idea.
Write a letter to all local nurseries asking them to recommend you to their clients.
As an additional sweetener, if they can put your ad on the notice of the nursery, you can offer a complimentary inflatable castle for the day --board.
No matter what outdoor leisure or party event you attend, work hard to work closely with your competitors.
Some leisure companies are closed in winter. (
Or do not do any foreign work).
If this happens in your area, ask if they can exchange commission for work.
In all your ads
Including the logo and website of your van)
, It is very clear that in the winter, you can provide inflation or anything you provide for indoor use.
Tip for inflatable castle rental company: rent a hall for a few hours.
Put your best inflatable toys in there and invite people to bring their children for free.
Give each parent a leaflet to promote your service.
You may mention that you will accept donations to cover the cost of renting the lobby.
You can even make a lot of money.
Recruit a group of \"sales people who are eager for Commission\" and they will go out and book a room for you in exchange for a portion of the rent.
For example, students need extra money for Christmas.
Meet women for their regular \"coffee morning.
Small local charities may have strong local support.
If some people know that they will be paid for each booking, they may be willing to hand out leaflets.
Contact all customers who use you in the summer by phone to see if you can book them this winter (e. g.
As a special Christmas present).
Look at the equipment that is in great demand in winter (e. g.
Professional heater or inflatable horse eye in construction industry).
Write a letter to all your local schools telling them they can get a 10% discount or more if they hire from October 1 to the end of the month.
The five main festivals in winter are Halloween, Guy Fox Night, Thanksgiving (For American citizens)
Christmas and New Year\'s Day celebrations.

All indoor venues (e.
