Of all the home businesses out there, a Christmas Light Installation business may be one of the best kept secrets around. Most people think of hanging Christmas lights as a low paying, low potential, grunt work, and therefore they never give it a closer look. But, in reality installing Christmas lights and decorations is a highly profitable, low overhead, easy to start and run business. With all that potential, who should be a Christmas light installer?
Time is becoming increasingly more valuable to people, so service industries like holiday lighting are exploding! Holiday lighting has a high margin, which means that even during a six to eight week holiday season you have a great opportunity to make your business thrive.

Contractors – There are many benefits to being a roofing contractor. However, there is a major drawback too. During the winter months, there are few workplaces more dangerous than the roof of a house. This means roofing contractors have to find other winter work to make money.
Handyman – For some handymen, winter is the slow season. It’s too cold out there to do anything, so you sit around inside watching TV, wishing there was something to build or fix. But there are actually some great winter handyman work that is just perfect for the colder months of the year, one of them being Christmas light installation.
Landscaper – In early November, landscape contractors across the country typically hit a big freeze. As temperatures dwindle downward, they frequently take landscapers’ revenues with them. To keep business hot year-round, some lawn care businesses have turned to Christmas light installation as a viable means of generating income.
Painter – Winter is a great time of the year for a number of activities: celebrating the holidays, skiing and snowboarding, making snow angels… Unfortunately, exterior painting isn’t included in this list. Given the low temperatures and the precipitation, most painters find themselves out of work and out of money during the winter.
Window Washers – In some parts of the country window cleaners are able to clean commercial and residential windows year round regardless of what month it is, because the seasons in their part of the country are much milder and more constant. One of the best ways for window washers to make money during the off season is with Christmas light installation. This can be done for both residents and businesses.
Augmented Income Seekers
It’s always nice to have a little extra cash lying around, and with such a short season (six to eight weeks), Christmas light installation could be the perfect opportunity to bring in some cash when a lot of people see the most financial strain. Holiday decor has a high margin, so even though the season is short, it’s better than having a supplemental part-time job!
