The Guide Broken-Down

Doing a feasibility study is the starting point, as this gives you somewhere to look back on throughout the process. Analysing how profitable and successful the business will be can give you more insight into the route you take with your business, and will help you understand the demand for your site and the benefits you can receive from this. 

Getting your planning permission is the next step. This is where many people are put off as they believe it to be a long and difficult process. In reality, it is really simple. The main thing you need to know is that you are going to have to submit drawings of your designs with measurements and dimensions, due to the fact that glamping pods are classed as property and can interfere with other structures in the area.

The next stage in your glamping journey would be financing your glamping pods. Many people are reluctant to start a glamping business because it is a common misconception that you must finance it yourself. If you can do so, that is brilliant. However, do not be disheartened if you cannot. There are many different ways that you can finance your glamping pods, and we can help you with that.

After you have planned the financial aspect of your business, you should move onto the marketing stage. Marketing is essential with any business, especially in the modern era with smartphones and the internet playing a major role in our lives. Take advantage of the opportunities that exist for you to grow your business, and do not overlook marketing and the things that it can do for your business.

We have now reached the final step, taking bookings! If you followed all the other steps correctly when starting a glamping business, you should be receiving bookings at a fast pace. You should now turn your focus to providing a great service for your customers as you have moved into a new stage for your business and you need to be focused on building customer relationships and nurturing them to help grow your business.
