Get More Bouncy Castle Bookings, Make More Money, And Love The Business Of Inflatable Hire…


From: Mark Jerram (Co-Founder of, and Founder of the BIHA)

Dear Friend,

You probably already know that the inflatable hire industry is a multi-million pound business and at the heart of it all are the hire companies and manufacturers/suppliers across the UK and the world.

As a bouncy castle owner, I know full well that the business of hiring inflatables can be incredibly challenging and this industry can be lonely and at times the competition fierce.

However, our rewards and satisfaction can often be high in the non-monetary areas, but...the joy can quickly disappear when all our energy is spent worrying about paying bills or making the mortgage payment.

So how do you balance the love of hiring inflatables with the hundreds of details required to start, run, and grow a successful hire business?

Why this might be one of the most important letters you'll ever read....

You could be making mistakes that are costing you hundreds of pounds every month, without you even knowing it!

You probably already know that starting a bouncy castle hire business and turning a healthy profit is tough work, and growing it and making it successful is even more so. It's a demanding personal business to own and operate. The quickest route to long-lasting success as a bouncy castle owner isn't about figuring it out yourself. There's no need to struggle on your own. We are here to help and to share our experiences with you.
