On the photo is a gift-wrapping service that rented mall space for just a month (December, of course). It helped a good number of frantic shoppers, myself included.
What if you took advantage of other seasonal opportunities, such as…
- back-to-school season … book-wrapping service
- start of summer … aircon cleaning
- Halloween … costume rental and make-up consultancy
- election campaign season … bullcrap detection and research for opposing politicians
I’m sure there are plenty of other possibilities (some are obvious but many are hidden) in your industry. The main goal is to help customers and make money at the same time.
A bit of extra work for a month or two could trigger a spike in revenue. Now who would say no to that?
