You build a great business and then you think ‘all right I did it, time to enjoy it.’ And while I’m a huge proponent of celebrating our success and living the life we imagine, I also know that you can’t actually sit still for too long or all of a sudden you’re going backwards. You have to be looking to innovate, improve, grow… If you’re going to continue to have success. Today, I’m excited to share my newest venture with Photo Booth Supply Co.
It’s critical to me that I be aware of what’s hot, what’s exciting and what people want. By actively seeking out those 3 components, I know I’m staying relevant and aware of what the marketplace wants. And I, like you have been noticing that the marketplace is in love with Photo Booths. And I’m right there with them.
That’s why I was so excited to meet Brandon of Photo Booth Supply Co. back in February. It all began when I stopped by to say hi to my friends and sponsors over at Drop it MODERN. They pretty much had the most amazing booth ever and inside their airstream (yes! A silver shiny awesome airstream trailer!) was the most fabulous open air Photo Booth setup I’d ever seen. And that’s when they told me that I had to meet Brandon the creator behind Photo Booth Supply Co. because we were totally going to hit it off.
And they were right!
As I played in the Photo Booth and chatted with Brandon, my mind was spinning with ideas to monetize the booth.
Now, if I was a wedding photographer, this booth would be a no-brainer. You know your clients are going to be looking for a Photo Booth. Why not take that piece of the pie as well!? But I’m not. So I had to know how I would monetize this booth to make the investment worth it?
By the time I left his booth, I’d already drafted a mini business plan in my mind as a secondary revenue stream. I should maybe interject here and mention that I dream of business ideas the way a third time bridesmaid dreams of her own chance at the big white gown. Anyway… So there I am dreaming up how to make this profitable.
I live in Seattle, so I knew I was in a great market. My strategy would be corporate. I would reach out and market our booth for company functions. I quickly figured out that if I could book the booth 10 times, I’d more than pay for it. I was also excited because our son has been really wanting his own chance at helping with a business and I knew this could be his chance (hello college savings account). More on that later!
For now, I’m happy to tell you that I am now the proud owner of my very own Photo Booth! Teaming up with PBSCo. has been amazing. They have thought of everything when it came to creating these open air concepts and the clean simple style is perfect. I’ve already used the booth at 3 speaking engagements and volunteered it for the kid’s school carnival. That carnival resulted in 1/2 a dozen inquiries alone.
My first experience with my new booth was only days after it was delivered. I had had the chance to set it up once before I loaded it up in it’s crying case and off we went to the Inspired Retreat in Nashville where I was a keynote speaker. Only days after that, me at the booth headed to Hawaii where I taught the Big Boost Workshop. And a few weeks after that, I took the booth to San Diego for my Thrive Mastermind Retreat. I’m happy to report that it travels really well and I think I’m finally getting the hand of maneuvering it with my other luggage down the terminal! 😉
Thinking about getting a Photo Booth, if you have any questions, just ask them in the comments and I’ll answer back!
The Synopsis: My experience with Photo Booth Supply Co. has been great! They are so super thorough explaining in their explanation and training when you get your booth and the way they’ve built these booths is awesome! They are portable, simple to use and well designed. It’s an investment for sure but it can easily pay for itself and become a longterm revenue stream. I’m a huge fan!!
