Here you'll find all the training materials you need for a successful balloon business start in one place:
To become a balloon artist or decorator, you first need to have an interest or even a passion for working with balloons. Secondly, you should do an honest self evaluation if you have what it takes to turn this passion into a profession.
Ticked off both boxes? Great! Then let's move on to market research, legal & tax obligations, marketing strategies, what tools & materials you need, etc. Sounds too difficult? With the right mentor, it really is easy to cover these important balloon business start up facts.
My eCourse "How to Start Your Own Balloon Decorating Business" will guide you through every step of the process.
Now that you've taken care of the - admittedly not so exciting - business side of things, you want to delve into the actual doing of balloon decorations.
Many of the common designs you can do with the instructions and tips on balloon-decoration-guide.com. But you might still be looking for more training and step-by-step guides.
Whilst it is easy to get instructional books or DVDs on balloon twisting, it is pretty difficult to get a single, decent book or DVD about balloon decorating. The offers I've seen are all complete training series, which will cost you $100 upwards.
The two big players in the balloon business - Qualatex and Conwin – both offer a series of instructional DVDs. I have no personal experience with any of their kits. Considering the reputation of the publishers, it's safe to assume that they are of high quality.
The Balloon Decor Master Series includes...
Price (as of March 2015): US$ 165
The Qualatex Training Kits consist of three parts:
Each kit includes a DVD, the Qualatex catalog, online reference material and test. With the first kit, you also get the "Design Basics With Balloons" book. If you go through all three training units and take the tests, you can display the "Certified Balloon Artist" (CBA) logo on your web site or marketing brochures.
Price (as of March 2015): US$ 99 per kit, or US$ 249 for all three of them.
Finally, check out the events calendar at BalloonHQ.com to find balloon decorating classes in your area.
