Renting a photo both is a great idea for any occasion, now to convince your customers of the same. Every year, tens of millions of people make the trek to the popular but sometimes dreaded family reunion. Potluck BBQs at the lake or ocean are a great choice.
Some people however like to go all out. Families often travel to popular all-inclusive spots like Vegas or even tropical getaways like Hawaii or the Keys while others take advantage of the many rental houses in the Carolinas, California, Maine and Vermont. With 5 bedrooms or more these rental homes are amazing places for special family gatherings. Lush accommodations with beautiful vistas for group activities are the hallmark of a successful family reunion.
Wherever the destination, advertising your rental photo booth with partnered businesses is just what you need to boost your bottom line!
A little bit of legwork on your part goes a long way. Get online and start looking at the resorts near you. There are summer homes, lodges or camps on every major lake and pond in every state. Do not forget about the ocean-side spots too. Keywords to search are “family reunion resorts in (your state)” or “family reunion on (lake, pond, ocean, etc.)”. Make note of the phone number and owner. Call them and start working your magic!
Remember to focus on how your business complements theirs. Feel out the person on the other end of the line. Ask them about their vision and really engage them in a deep conversation about the history of their business or property, the area, and their connection to it. Once you have made a great impression through a heartfelt conversation get ready to bring that box of pamphlets or flyers on over. Be sure to dress appropriately. Remember that a strong first impression from the conversation must be followed up by attire that matches your business-savvy voice on the phone.
You must have quality advertising for your business. Some of the best places to go are:
Here you can experiment with virtually any design or upload your own. Remember that a well-designed marketing/advertising flyer should make reference to the location. Use blue skies, green lawns or sparkling waters as part of a background as necessary. Use scenes of families with children playing with your photo booth props, ladies in sun dresses, ruggedly handsome men in polo tees, grandparents beaming over the generations of family gathered together. This is a family reunion where your photo booth will be a centerpiece. It is an opportunity for you to exercise your inner creativity.
If you would rather someone else generate your flyers, you can do that too. You can try companies at:
Remember that the family reunion business is a seasonal market so have your material ready by the end of March to generate interest from the resort owners. Invite them to an open house where you showcase your booth or leave them with some photos from one of your last gigs. Above all, have fun and make lifelong connections and friends.
