Starting a Singing Telegram Business Business Overview:

If you love seeing smiles on peoples’ faces and you’re looking for a fun way to be your own boss, you should consider starting a singing telegram business. If you are a gifted singer, this is the perfect part-time business for you. If you are not a great singer but see the potential with a business idea like this one, you can hire a staff of singers to deliver the telegrams while you concentrate on the business. Before you get too far with this business, you (or your singers) need to learn a long list of popular songs. The more songs you know, the more choices your customers have and the more occasions you can cover. Consider writing new words to existing songs or giving customers the option to pay for you to write words specific to the telegram recipient (putting his/her name, occupation, age, etc. into the song). A website that includes your song list as well as your pricing is a great way to let your potential customers know about your business. You will also need a vehicle to get to and from your jobs so consider putting advertising on your car. Also put ads in local phone books and online to get the word out. Costumes are another popular way to get attention. Monkey suits, clown get-ups or chicken costumes will definitely get you noticed. Be sure to walk to and from your vehicle fully dressed and with some kind of advertising on such as a company t-shirt (with your website clearly displayed on it) over your costume. If you are an actor or stand-up comedian with any singing talent, this business is a great way to earn some extra money while operating your own small business. Often those in the entertainment industry have to have other jobs to pay the bills while they’re waiting for their big break. With a singing telegram business, you can continue to entertain while you’re waiting for your ship to come in. And if you’re just managing the business while letting your staff do the singing, you’re giving these entertainers the opportunity to do what they love while earning some extra money. Either way, a singing telegram business is a fun way to spend the day.
