Starting Your Own Christmas Lighting and Decorating Business - Digital PDF Version
Never has there been greater demand for professional Christmas installation services. In most areas of the US and Canada, there’s more work than there are installers. The installers that are available are having to turn work away because of the sheer volume.
So why aren’t there more pro Christmas installers if there’s such a big demand for their services? It all comes down to the secretive nature of the Christmas installation industry. Up until recently, if you wanted to start your own Christmas lighting business you either had to either learn through trial and error, or spend $10,000 or more and buy into a franchise opportunity. Both options were very costly.
When the first edition of our book, Starting Your Own Christmas Lighting and Decorating Business, was released in 2010, the secretive world of pro Christmas installing was turned on its head. Suddenly all the trade secrets that everyone protected and didn’t want to have revealed was now out in the open. The book quickly became the industry textbook for anyone wanting to start hanging Christmas lights and decorating professionally.
Now in it’s 3rd revision and more in depth than ever, Starting Your Own Christmas Lighting and Decorating Business is the uncontested source for no nonsense information when it comes to starting your own Christmas lighting business.

"I wish I would have discovered this business years ago! I'm amazed at the demand for residential Christmas lighting. I'm a firefighter and was able to start up my own Christmas installation business with the help of this book. I'm now making nearly as much hanging Christmas lights as I am as a firefighter."
