i'm surprised people can earn from internet cafe as more places are going wifi, could u share with us on your earning in that business, for curiosity sake.
Well, for legit stuff, i suggest add on service, like drinks/food that are bottled or not gonna be sticky/oily. Magazines related to tech/gaming. Computer repair/modification service. Oh and handphones too. They should be hot in the uk right now i suppose.
You can also promote your own side services such as webdesign/graphics as a separate service. Just look at your regular customers and see what would be effective. The fact that you have a shop is a advantage cause it make u come off legit.
For illegal stuff, u can get some hookers and ask them provide services in the backroom to relax ur cilents after a hour or two of internet surfing.....ok. i am just joking, don't take that seriously. LOL.
thanks mate ive been looking into converting it to a call centre but i need the work sources
Cold call acai berry sales, watch bolier room as a training video
Maybe you can ask some student to surf for free if they wiling to help you do some article selling services.
thanks guys at the moment im looking at all oppurtunity's to monetize this place as for acai berry where would i get the leads from who to call etc
i can get people to cover the pc's and work but i need to come up with some money making ideas
Set up some sort of monitoring program and capture people's texts/docs then copyscape check them and submit them to AC.
I dunno, no ideas really it was a late night and my brain is mush
more details please
e-brothel sounds good too i can get the women...lol will have to change the layout a little so the punters cant see the other women in the back....lol
no the internet cafe is well underground as for offers etc ill have to change the ip's on each pc as they are all on one network etc if i do the e-brothel ill need the girls to come in on a night which is a bit dodgy could do with something during office hours really that way nobody suspects anything
coffee and espresso if your not serving it already. Insane profit margins in those two
thanks for the tip mate i serve coffee already but i want to change it totally
You could install some plugins to your browser software and change ad's on pages that your clients visits.
Heres a way to double your profit: double your prices The internet cafe I go to charges 3$ per hour, I'm not sure what that is converted to pounds but I'm sure you could get away with 2 pounds/hour.
Can your punters play games on the pcs? Multiplayer games against each other?
You can run gaming events/competitions, charge an entry fee and award prize (a crappy trophy) to the winner. Leaflet drop local school/college. I have seen some companies offering gaming as part of a stag do. Maybe do some jv with a paintball company and offer a package where they shoot each other on computers first and then go to paintball field and do it for real. Sorry just some random thoughts.
well, if there are market for MMORPG or online game over at ur place, u might think of selling some online game reload card or something(i dont whats that called) and also some merchandised.(lexample: World of Warcraft) or maybe u can sell some games, legit copy of cause. since in uk, gamble are legit, u might think of putting of some slot machine or something...or maybe transform it into a slot machine center (just my 2cents)
In general, you want to expand it to more than a just a internet cafe. That's the concept bascially. Make your place more multi functional and attractive to people who walk by. If a guy walks by and he see it's internet only, he'll go "feck it, i can use that at home or wifi" and continue walking.
If you have other stuff like magazines for tech/gamers, handphone services, computer services, game merchandise, gaming machines....you just give them another 5 reasons to step foot into your shop and pay u.
I also like sox88 idea of free services for sign up, you could extend it to free internet usage and merchandise as it's apply. You just need to advance notice the network that all your signups will be from one place and have their ok.
thanks guys the gaming idea sounds good but i have normal crappy pc's for internet use they are not too clever for gaming also i dont think theres much of a demand for it where i am as every fecker has the latest consoles but thanks for the info much appreciated
does anyone have any information regarding call centre's etc
how about some premium lines or a multilingual advice centre where i can make money on the calls
There used to be an internet cafe down the road from us, and one of the things they offered which you may already do is allow gamers to come in and play online and I don't just mean on pc's they had 360's and ps3's setup for people do some online gaming on, they used to charge extra for being able to it. Like I said you may already do this, but internet cafe's are not so popular now as more and more people are getting access to the internet in there homes.
