When the winter rolls in, it can have a devastating effect on foot traffic for your business. That same photo booth you bought to take advantage of the foot traffic during the warmer months can also help bring in customers during the winter. With a little imagination, you can use your photo booth to create a steady stream of revenue all winter long.
Social Media Contests
You can start contests that have customers post the pictures they took using your photo booth to social media. You can allow your social media audience to judge which picture is the best, or you can do it yourself. You can offer a weekly prize that will encourage people to make the weekly trek to your business to enter their latest photo booth picture. This will also act as great publicity for your business as your company name will wind up on all of your customers’ social media accounts.
Fireside Photo Promotions
Winter weather gets people thinking about hot cocoa and warm fires, so why fight it? Set up a fake fireplace in your store and offer free hot cocoa to everyone who uses your photo booth. You can do this once a week, every day during the winter, or on special occasions. You will find that, when the winter winds start whipping up, your store is filled with people drinking cocoa and taking pictures with your photo booth.
The Winter Lounge
Winter is a time when people like to go to gathering places and just enjoy each other’s company. If you have the space in your business, you could create a winter photo booth lounge with comfortable chairs and plenty of options for creating custom photo booth pictures. This idea will not only create revenue for your photo booth, but it will also bring in customers to browse your store and increase normally bad winter revenue numbers.
Winter Theme Nights
The Smile 2.0 software that comes with FacePlace photo booths allows you to create a variety of photo themes that your customers will find fun and entertaining. Themes that include visits to the North Pole, fun on the ski slopes, and hanging with the polar bears gives you a chance to advertise events at your business that feature your versatile photo booth.
A photo booth is a great way to add a revenue stream to your business during the busiest times of the year. But most people don’t realize that a photo booth can also be something that generates extra revenue during the winter months as well. The winter is a time of year when people look for a reason to gather together and have fun. A photo booth is a great reason for people to visit your business regularly and keep your revenue numbers up all year round.
