Lightsounds Business Opportunities

Lightsounds opened its first retail store in 1995 in Leichhardt in inner western Sydney. The business was originally founded in the early 1980's as a Mobile Disc Jockey provider and started in retail around 1992. The founder Rick Chisholm decided to focus on retail and rental as the primary activity in 1995 and Lightsounds was born.

It was the first store of its type in Australia and its immediate success paved the way for more stores to open in subsequent years. Lightsounds has a combination of both fully fledged stores such as Fortitude Valley in Brisbane and Darlinghurst and Kingsgrove in Sydney and independent stockists where the Lightsounds brand compliments an existing professional lighting and audio business.

Unlike most business opportunities the Lightsounds model is able to offer flexible solutions to accommodates one’s budget or situation. Lightsounds is not just limited to retail. Multiple income streams including short- and long-term equipment rental, installation and projects opportunities, DJ practise booths, service of gear, second hand goods trade-ins, deliveries, jukeboxes and more.

A Lightsounds business can be in the form of a dedicated Lightsounds branded store or as a stockist where Lightsounds exists under a store-in-store arrangement with products and services available for customers alongside an existing business. Depending on your location, budget and drive, a solution can be tailored to best suit your needs.

As part of Lightsounds you will not only benefit from the multiple income streams but also be part of a national system which includes having your location listed as part of the national Lightsounds website. You will receive customer referrals for your area and the Lightsounds 1800 phone number will direct calls made to Lightsounds from your area to your store.

Lightsounds stores and stockist receive preferential pricing from their key suppliers giving you the opportunity to make more money from the products than you may be able to do so on your own.

This business opportunity suits those with an interest in professional audio and lighting and who enjoy working with people.
