If you are thinking of starting a seasonal business, statistics have shown that Halloween is a good time to do it. Don’t bother thinking about trying to get into business selling candies or pumpkins, that Halloween business is already taken by bigger companies like Walmart so it would be pretty much impossible to compete.
However, you there is scope with Halloween costumes and decorations to develop a business and cater to a niche market. For example:
Also growing in popularity is visiting haunted houses. Setting up your own could be expensive and turn out not to be as good as other ones nearby but providing tours of “haunted houses” and other spooky sites in your area could be a lucrative business. Contact your local historical society to research the paranormal history of your area and you could uncover ghost stories that might surprise you and present them to your customers in an entertaining and exciting way.
If you set up a decorating or party planning business for Halloween, it would not be difficult to turn this into a seasonal business for Christmas or even do the same for birthdays. Once you are established and do a good job you might be surprised at how many clients you get and how much profit you can make.
