If you’ve been searching for a business to start from home, starting a yard sign business could be your best bet and exactly what you’re looking for.
Typically, people look for a few things when starting a venture of their own:
- High Earning Potential
- Growing Customer Base
- Not Too Complex
- Work from home
Starting a yard sign business offers all of the above… and more. Aside from being one of the lowest cost full-scale businesses to start – It’s also what can be considered an ‘evergreen’ industry. Whether you’re making and selling political signs, real estate signs, or event signs – there’s always going to be a demand for your product.
What other business can say that?
In addition, a yard sign business is the perfect option for those who want to be their own boss and have a flexible schedule. You can rent signs out of your home, or even have a small team to help with production and delivery.
Of course, there does not exist a business without its challenges – but a yard sign business is about as close to a ‘sure thing’ as you can get. If you’ve been thinking about making the jump lately, take the following benefits into consideration.
Here are the top 10 benefits of starting a yard sign business:
1. You can be your own boss
Let’s face it… nobody likes to be told what to do.
One of the best things about owning your own business is that you get to call the shots and be your own boss. With a yard sign business, you’ll be in control of your own destiny.
From your daily schedule, to your overall business strategy – you’re always in command.
While it may seem overwhelming at first, partnering with a stork handler company can make the process much smoother and provide you the strategic assistance you need.
2. Low startup cost
Compared to other businesses, a yard sign business has relatively low startup costs. If you work with Stork Handler Central – a couple thousand dollars is enough to get you on the ground running with a working model.
3. Flexible hours
Since you’ll be working from home, you’ll have the flexibility to set your own hours and work around your family’s schedule.
Need to run a quick errand? No problem. Kid needs to be picked up from the Nurse? No Stress.
The freedom to actually plan out your day, set your own meeting hours, and section off time for yourself, allows you to get a lot more done throughout the day. In this line of work – you truly are the master of your own schedule.
4. Unlimited earning potential
The sky is truly the limit when it comes to how much money you can make when starting a yard sign business. Here are some of the factors that go into your opportunity sizing:
- Size of Population in Service Area (15-30 mile radius)
- Competition in Area
- Services you Offer (Add Ons and Other Rentals)
- How much time you put into it
There are always new families moving in, birthdays, new births occurring, and new events happening – which means there is always a demand for yard signs. Not to mention, as the population in your service area grows – so does your potential customer base.
5. You can work from home
Definitely one of the best things about a yard sign business is that you can work from the comfort of your own home. No more office (unless you want it) and no more commuting to a job you hate!
All of your work can be done from your home – and your deliveries will be within a vicinity that you set. You (or your team) won’t have to worry about driving long distances on a whim – unless you want to! Keep in mind – the larger your service area – the larger your potential client base.
While working at home is great – there must be a balance – and making sure you maintain healthy habits is key.
6. Be your own marketing department
With a yard sign business, you’ll be in charge of your own marketing and advertising. This means you can get creative and come up with unique ways to promote your business.
From flyers to Google Adwords to SEO… the versatility of the business allows you to pick and choose the marketing that works for you. Typically, SEO and Google Adwords in peak seasons are enough to get you off the ground running.
7. Get out and about
Since you’ll be working from home, you will naturally have the opportunity to get out and about more. You can take your business on the road when doing the actual deliveries (at first if you don’t hire a team) , work at different events or meet with potential clients in person.
8. Networking Opportunities
Owning a yard sign business is a great way to meet new people. You’ll get to interact with clients and other business owners, and you never know who you might meet.
Throughout the years, I’ve built relationships with dozens of business owners in parallel industries and this is where there is room for growth.
Have a friend that does balloon decor, owns a pastry shop, or does event planning? The room for referrals, collaboration and growth is limitless and constantly shows itself.
9. Make People Happy
As a new yard sign business owner, you’ll be surprised at the level of satisfaction received when helping a brand-new mom celebrate the arrival of her baby or a grandfather reign in a career with a retirement celebration.
The pure joy you see on client’s faces is a bonus that makes it even more exciting to wake up and grow the business each day.
On top of that, given that almost every sign you deliver will be captured in a family photo – your work lives on for generations!
10. Have fun!
Last but not least, starting a yard sign business can be a lot of fun. You’ll get to be creative, meet new people, and make money doing something you love. So what are you waiting for? Start your own yard sign business today!
