My suggested approach to running a marquee hire business
If you’re doing a marquee at someones house what does tell you about the area?
It means houses nearby are also likely to have gardens large enough for marquees. Not only that but chances are some of the local people will probably go to the event you’re doing a marquee for! So why not target them?
Every time you do a marquee it’s worth going up a down the road a little way posting flyers – just get something very simple made up saying another xyz marquee going up near here call 01234567890 to hire a marquee for your next event etc.
It seems a bit of a pain to do and after you’ve put a marquee up spending another 15mins going up and down the street might not be that appealing but think about it – this is advertising focused on exactly your target market. This type of advertising should give you the highest return on outlay you can possibly get.
Remember all this when it’s raining and all you want to do is jump straight back in the van and get off home!
You can guarantee when my posts are short it means we’re either very busy or my daughter’s not sleeping well – today was both.
