Profitable business ... on balloons!

                     Profitable business ... on balloons!

  The idea of ​​earning money on balloons filled with helium is not new, but almost completely forgotten. The market is free, and with skillful conduct of business, one can make very good money almost from the air, or rather ... FROM HELIUM! :)


                                                        Where to buy:

1.Shariki - in children's shops, central stores in the department of children's toys.

2.Balloons with compressed helium (10 - 40L), - in construction stores and firms selling fittings, welding equipment: oxygen, acetylene, etc.



The average price of a bottle with compressed helium is 35-47 $,   for about 500 balls. Take the average cost of the balloon - $ 41   and calculate the cost of gas costs per ball:

41: 500 = 0.0082 $  

The average cost of the ball is $ 0.15. We add up the cost of one ball filled with helium:

0.0082 + 0.15 = 0.232 $. In hryvnia it is approximately 1,23, in rubles - 7,42.


Depends on the popularity of the market, the neighborhood's liveliness, advertising, wholesale it (for various celebrations) or retail, holidays, well, prices, of course. The average markup on the ball can be 100% of the cost (plus / minus). On holidays, you can realize several times more than usual, the number of balls with an extra charge of 200 or more percent.


Of course, in open locations it is unlikely to be allowed to hold the balloon to fill the balls "without departing from the ticket office." You can next to your outlet to rent a one-room apartment, a room, a private house, where you can keep a can and a ready average stock of ready-made balls for a day; in which case in a few minutes you can prepare   a new party. If there is a car - you can carry and leave in it a small balloon - on 10 l . Work preferably in two: one - the seller, the second - the courier: to exhibit in a small outlet at a time more than 15-20 balls is not very convenient; as the purchase of goods is better to bring new lots. In addition, in this case, additional advertising is created.



1. When you arrive at your trading place, lift a large package on a strong cord for a dozen (more and more) meters, into which not one but several air balls are placed (so that it does not bend from the wind). On the package on both sides, place the posters or inscriptions in large letters, for example "SELL THE AIR BALLS". To your shopping place will walk in crowds TO VIEW. A part of "looking" - will buy.

2. You need to paste and give announcements to newspapers about this: "Balloons filled with compressed helium will decorate your wedding, any family celebration, and this is a great gift for children. Always on sale from ... to ... on the NNN market . Our trading place is very easy to find - look to the sky, and keep a course on our air advertising! Low prices; we accept preliminary orders . " You can also place advertising on trolley bus tickets, matches, a running line, banner board, etc.

                                         The secret of the successful sale of balls:

It is very important to know that the vast majority (more than 50% unequivocally) of your potential buyers would gladly buy a ball for themselves, to decorate the apartment, as a gift to loved ones, first of all, to children ... BUT DO NOT DO THIS. Why? Very simply: because of the embarrassment - "How will I carry it home? For the rope? On the road, everyone will only look at me, look around, let go of jokes ... " on the counter must be   A poster with a noticeable inscription, for example: "We pack the beads! Package - ... cop . " In parallel with the balls will sell and packages.
