If you are like most self-employed contractors, then you know how much of a struggle it is to make any note-worthy income during the winter months. Truth be told, there is still a great opportunity to make a lot of cash during the winter months – maybe even more than you have made throughout the whole year. The business opportunity that I am referring to is the Christmas light installation business. This business not only allows you to target new prospects, but you can also target markets from your current businesses as well.
The Christmas lights installation business is one that could be beneficial and lucrative whether it is your first business or as an add-on. With a contracting business such as landscaping, you may have a few loyal customers that will still accept your business during these months, but it most likely will not be enough to keep your business afloat, or at least bring in as much as you brought in the prior months. This is where a lighting business can fill the gap over the harsh winter season.
Your desire will ultimately determine how much money you will earn. Even doing a minimum of two houses a day, five days a week you can turn a nice profit – and we’re talking working by yourself. With a crew of up to four men, you can expect to double-quadruple this figure. Here are a few facts of the business:
- You can make money from your existing customers.
- Has a retention rate of about 80%.
- An average of only $3,000 is needed (not including training).
Those are just a few of the facts of starting your own Christmas light installation business. Perhaps one of the greatest perks of this business is that a lot of your income will be from repeat customers. There is a great chance that you will get the chance to hang the owner’s lights from the previous year again (especially if you stored their lights for them).
Delving into the business is not as hard as it seems either. If you are a previous business owner, then you can easily use your existing equipment to help you get started with this business. Not only that, but you can use your existing customers and prospects to help you get started right away after you purchase your Christmas equipment.
The only thing that is left is to receive proper training, marketing, and materials. The most successful light installers thoroughly study the ends and outs of the business, and receive the necessary training to receive immediate profits, to maximize them, and avoid problems getting started. This is one business where you can strike it right the first time around, and in a short period of time.
You can get started and cash in on Christmas now. Once you learn every thing needed to get started, you can start making profits immediately with your own Christmas light installation business.
