Window tinting is a popular modification to most vehicles within the United States. This is especially true among younger people that like to make modifications to their cars.  These businesses generally are able to generate a moderate amount of revenues in most economic climates. The services relating to window tinting are generally affordable even during times of economic recession given that the pricing point ranges anywhere from $100 to $500 depending on the quality of the service being offered. The startup cost associated with the new window tinting service are very low. Usually, these businesses can be started for as little as $30,000 to as much as $100,000 depending on the location of the business and whether or not a standalone real estate facility is going to be used provide the services to the general public. It should be noted that many window tinting services also offer a host of related automotive installation services including car audio installations, tires, rims, and related services. However, there are a number of standalone companies that simply focus specifically on doing window tinting. When a company only offers the service they typically operate in a much higher quality capacity by actually removing the windows and dipping them in the chemicals to tinted glass rather than applying a veneer on the window in order to darken it.

As this is an automotive focus business, most banks and financial institutions are willing to provide a moderate level of capital support to these companies. It should be expected that the entrepreneur looking to launch this type of business will be required to put up 20% to 30% of the total startup cost. Of course, a window tinting service business plan is going to be needed and this document should have a three-year profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page. As it relates to the greater industry regarding automotive modifications, this is a $30 billion a year industry that has more than 250,000 companies that render the services to the general public. Within the business plan, a full demographic analysis should be included as well and examining such statistics such as population size, population density, median household income, median family income, percentage of people under the age of 30, and percentage of people that modify their cars on an ongoing basis. This is something that will assist in determining how many customers a business can potentially receive in the course of any given year.

A window tinting service SWOT analysis is usually produced in conjunction with the business plan and the marketing plan. As it relates to strengths, window tinting services are able to operate with a moderately low operating overhead cost, the gross margins from services typically ranges anywhere from 70% to 90%, the barriers to entry are low, and competition in most markets is usually limited. These businesses can be highly lucrative in most economic climates.

For weaknesses, this is a difficult business to be in if the only service being offered are window tinting services. This is due to the fact that during times of severe economic recessions – many people will forgo making ongoing modifications to their vehicles. As such, it is imperative that he window tinting service have an operational plan in place in the event of an economic recession.

As it relates to opportunities, many window tinting services can readily expand by offering a host of other services again including car audio services, specialized ignition installations, and other easy to do general car modifications. Many window tinting services will offer a host of other products as it relates to improving the overall aesthetic of a car. One of the other ways of these businesses can grow it simply by establishing additional locations.

For threats, there’s really nothing that is going to change about the way these companies do business over the next 10 to 20 years. Aesthetic modifications to vehicles have remained popular in all economic climates and among all people of varying socioeconomic classes.

A window tinting service marketing plan should be developed as well in conjunction with the business plan and the SWOT analysis. Foremost, many window tinting services acquire a highly visible retail location from which they are able to showcase their services to the general public. Finding a very good retail location is very important as many people see what is offered on a daily basis as a drive around. As such, while this may contribute to a higher initial operating expense – the return on investment for maintaining large-scale signage in a highly visible retail location can be very beneficial to the business.

As with all businesses these days, a proprietary website should be developed that showcases the location talent, hours of operation, costs relating to window tinting, and other pertinent information. This website can be listed among all major search engines including Google, Bing, Yahoo and a presence on social media should be established as well. As it relates to social media, maintaining profiles on platforms like FaceBook and Twitter allows individuals to see images of completed work in the past with the permission of the car owner. This can be a great way in order to generate interest in the business given that individuals that have used the service can also leave reviews on the social media pages. This can drastically boost the visibility of the business as well as the credibility of the company as an honest and quality provider of window tinting. One of the nice things out maintaining a large-scale social media presence is that images of completed work can go viral and be seen by potentially thousands of people at any given time. Additionally, the cost of maintaining a presence on social media platforms is next to nothing. Although it does take some time to generate a significant amount of interest in a specific social media platform – the return on investment as it relates to the time necessary to maintain this presence can be significant. Many businesses will also use pay per click marketing in order to drive traffic to their website at the onset of operations.

Window tinting services can be highly lucrative businesses given the high margins generated as well as the low operating cost. Given that many of the people that are purchasing the services are younger people with more discretionary income, economic recessions do not have nearly the same level of impact on these types of businesses as they do with related companies.
