It is by far one of the best kept secrets when it comes to home based businesses.
A balloon business is recession proof, offers a 6-figure income, it's fun and holds one of the highest success rates of any home based business in the country.
A balloon business is one of the strongest home based businesses in America that can be started on a shoestring, and have you earning significant income in less than 30 days.
Let's just work with facts.
There are many markets that can be worked with a balloon business, each market offers a 6-figure income. You simply decide which market or markets you want to work.
Let's look at a couple of those markets:
Fact is that high schools are still spending on average of $ 2,000- $ 3,000 on balloon decorations for their proms. Prom jobs are very easy to pick up, and prom committees have many fund raisers which allow for very large profits from these jobs.
Weddings over the past 10 years have gone more towards balloon decorations with arches, centerpieces, walkways, hearts and much more. Average wedding decoration job now averages over $ 2.300.00.
The great thing about balloon decorations is that the demand is much higher than the supply. There is very limited competition, and when the correct marketing techniques are implemented it is very easy to dominate your local market.
This is the tip of the iceberg as there are many more needs for decorations including:
- Office parties
- Birthday parties
- Radio and TV banquets
With just the above markets, the average income for a balloon decoration business is $ 135,000.
The great thing about this business is that it is very simple to learn and very easy to get started. But there is more, much more.
Character deliveries add on average an additional $ 112,000 per year to your pocket. No you do not have to run around dressed as a clown or bear, but you can, or you can hire the people needed to perform these jobs which offer tremendous income.
Let's take a look at some of the characters that deliver balloons for all types events:
- Police Officer – This one can be some fun.
- Teddy Bear
- Belly dancer
Okay laugh, fact is that in most parts of the country balloon companies are being paid for a teddy bear to deliver balloons and sing happy birthday on average of $ 65.00 for five minutes of work. Even if you are hiring someone to perform your jobs you are making a very nice profit.
This market earns balloon companies on average of $ 112,000 per year.
Belly dancer's will run an average of twelve jobs per week with an average job around $ 95.00. Even after paying the dancer, the balloon company profits over $ 35,000 a year from just this one character.
Valentines day is a $ 3,000- $ 4,000 day. Even with the right people in place you will not handle all the jobs that call in.
During the Christmas season Santa is hired out on average of thirty times for at least two hours per job to various business parties. At $ 110.00 per hour, and paying Santa $ 25.00 per hour, the average balloon business picks up a very significant Christmas bonus.
There is more, balloon sculptures, balloon drops just to mention a few. People are not going to stop spending money for their kids birthdays. Office parties? Balloon companies perform over 20 jobs per week with birthday parties in businesses. Everyone chips in $ 5 or $ 10 and has a belly dancer or teddy bear come in during lunch. It is fun and very profitable.
Some people decide to simply work one aspect of the many markets mentioned above. Since each market represents a six figure income it makes sense.
It is a business. When you get past that and realize how much fun this business is and how it can afford you and your families tremendous income, you realize that you have one of the strongest businesses in the country.
Even in a recession people are still spending money on their kids, proms, parties, weddings and much more.
The balloon business also offers an amazing opportunity to start on a shoestring and earn very significant income within your first month or two.
Bartering with radio stations (who hold banquets for their clients every week) allows you to build a very strong income almost immediately. You are paying pennies on the dollar for advertising while your competition is asking themselves who are you and how this happen.
In today's economy there are not a lot of businesses that can boost that their income is up. Balloon companies are soaring and for good reason.
