Howdy fellow Photo Booth owners!
I am a 18 year old, just graduated high school in May, I started my own Photo Booth Rental company February 2016, and it has taken off a lot better than I thought it would!! I am slowly getting the hand on most of the operations, etc. But I am looking for some advise on somethings.
What is your thoughts on advertising? What do you think is a good solution for advertising?? I recently tried Google Ad words, and discovered its supper expensive and doesn't do my small business any good really. I recently had my logos placed on my trailer in which I carry the photo booth in. It hasn't been long enough to see what that is going to do for me sales wise.
When I started this company, I made a commitment to not only the business but the community in which I live in. I live in a middle class community and not everyone has the opportunity to have these wonderful expensive things at there events. SO, I decided I would make my prices as low as I could go. Right now I am at 1 hour- $200, 2 hour- 300$ 3 hour-$350 and then 40$ for each additional hour. Each rental comes with everything we offer besides the scrap booking option ($75) With that being said, there is one other photo booth rental company that im in "competition" with that is 200$ an hour up to 5 hours then 100$ for each additional hour. Is this something that is ideal to your brain? Good idea? Bad idea??
I am open to all of your advice! I am new at this and would love to make a career out of this. Please let me know what your thoughts are on these and other tips!
