The Holiday Lighting and Decorating Industry has experienced an 800% GROWTH over the last 6 years! Also according to industry sources, residential homeowners and commercial and professional business owners spend over $200 Million each holiday season for this service.
And, with the holiday lighting and decorating industry being in it's infancy, this may be the perfect "Add-on" service to your existing business or a stand alone business that earns you enough in 3 months to take the rest of the year off.
Generally, the lighting season begins in late October, when you'll begin to generate sales and start decorating, and finishes up in mid January when you've finished taking down all the lights and decorations from your customer's property.
This industry is the perfect add-on for many seasonal businesses like, window cleaners, landscapers, painters, roofers, pool services, construction companies, fencing companies and florists. Plus, it's a lower risk starting this type of business venture because, you can utilize your current customer base from which to create sales and retain your employees during this season.
The average Christmas light installation company earns over $1000 per day per work crew during the 6 – 8 week season. It is also not uncommon for installers to earn upwards of $3000 in a single day when installing larger residential and commercial jobs.
A small scale Christmas light installation business can easily expect to earn upwards of $20,000 in their first season of business providing they have a solid and sound business strategy. Many mid size Christmas light installation companies rake in earnings in the low to mid 6 figures. I also know of at least one company called "The Perfect Light" that generates over a million dollars in sales in less than three months. So there is plenty of money to be made in this budding, high growth industry.
