Many contractors, painters and landscapers find the holiday season to be fairly slow. The late fall and winter months can seem like an eternity if you're not doing much work. Why not turn that around and start cashing in on one of the most lucrative holiday businesses?
If you want to create a solid income during the holiday season a Christmas lighting business is definitely one to investigate. What many don't realize is that homeowners and businesses spend over $200 million a year on Christmas lighting installation. This was money spent on having someone else do their installation!
This is the kind of business that landscapers, roofers, painters and others who work with residential and commercial customers throughout the year can begin to seriously use to impact their bottom line. You can retain your customers all year long while adding new and exciting services to your portfolio.
Many entrepreneurs who decided to include this service in their roster, have realized earnings of over $1000 per day during the season and in some cases have been raking in up to $3000 a day on commercial projects. Many contractors are transitioning from seasonal projects to year-round services.
Their new revenue source is being used in a number of situations:
- nighttime party lighting decoration
- evening wedding lighting design
- special events lighting design
There are folks who've taken the time to research the market and take appropriate courses to build a year-round service model. They hire the right people for the job; thus allowing them to continue to work at what they are good at.
Like any new business venture, it is prudent to investigate the business model thoroughly. Get proper training in managing the Christmas holiday decoration business. Go online and study with those who are already successful in this venture.
It is unwise to make the same mistakes others have when you can learn from their experience. Avoid the expensive franchises because you will be investing more money in them than in you and your family. This business can be started on a small budget if you know how to do it properly.
If you take the time to study the holiday lighting installation business, you can start making money doing your very first week. There are experts available to teach you the proper way to do it. This venture can bring you and your family many happy holidays.
