As you may know, in the lawn mowing business, the winter can take a huge toll on your income. While your profits may flourish in the early months, your income could severely decrease during the winter season. Luckily there is one business opportunity that can possibly supplement your full winter income and bring in larger profits than you may have received throughout the prior months. The business I am referring to is holiday light installation.
You see, during the winter season, businesses and residents hire people to hang their Christmas displays. Year after year, the Christmas season becomes more profitable with home and business owners spending an excess of over 200,000,000 each holiday season. A lawn mowing business with existing clientele can easily jump in and grab a piece of the pie.
Holiday lighting has become a tradition amongst businesses and residential neighborhoods alike. With the amount of foot traffic an attractive lighting display will bring, business owners are willing to shell out thousands of dollars to have their lights hung. Some business contracts can garnish more revenue than you would have earned in a month from your lawn mowing business.
It is not uncommon for 4-men crew to earn daily profits of $2000 and $3000. For you to maximize profits, a rule is that the earlier you start, the better. Generally, you want to start looking for clients as early as late August/early September. This ensures you will be making cash right after Halloween, which is generally the time you will begin hanging lights. So you can toss your lawn mowing business aside (figuratively speaking), and get ready to start making tons of cash in this new business.
Already having existing clientele, you have many prospects before you even begin. Offering your customers a discount for hanging their lights, or perhaps even giving them a discount on mowing their lawns for letting you hang a sign in their yard is a great way to attract new customers. Word-of-mouth marketing is always the best, especially if they let you hang their lights for them.
It is safe to say that the holiday lighting business is more than just an “add-on” business. In fact, you can make money hanging lights after the Christmas holidays. There are wedding receptions, tree wrappings for parties, as well as other commercial lighting displays. This along with your existing lawn mowing business can bring around huge yearly profits. You could easily make more to the tune of $1,000 on your first day with the proper training and a proper marketing plan.
So the question is, do you want to earn more money than you ever thought possible during the winter season? There is no reason to slow down or completely stop your lawn mowing business for the whole winter season when you can more than double your income during the winter season. All you need to know are the facts, and you can get started right away.
