Managing your earnings
Don’t spend all your money at once! After a successful summer weekend, you might be tempted to empty your pockets, but consider insurance, equipment, transportation, advertising, and the fact that winter is a lot less lucrative than the height of July. Spend your money wisely – for instance, a system that allows your customers to book online could recoup the cost of its purchase very quickly, but if it isn’t in demand it might take a long time to recover the cost of a huge and expensive inflatable.
Online booking systems
Why are online booking systems so important? Customers can book online and check availability 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, regardless of whether you’re asleep, driving or spending time with your loved ones, so you can put the work phone down and discard the paper diary. You won’t need to haggle with people any more, and those who do book or enquire with you will have their details kept on file for future marketing. You can expect to see a significant increase in bookings with an online booking system.
