When the weather’s warm and the sun is shining, outdoor Wi-Fi at places like campgrounds, marinas, or hotel courtyards and pools is a popular bonus. Just about everyone’s connected through mobile devices these days and having that extra benefit of Wi-Fi availability outside can set a business apart from their competition.
But how do you keep all that outdoor equipment protected when the freezing weather comes? Everyone’s indoors then, except for the Wi-Fi and Customer-Premises Equipment (CPE).
Quantum PC Services provides network setup for companies in the Sturgeon Bay area to expand their wireless network outdoors, but we also provide a way to keep it safe during the winter season.
Our Quantum Care program includes a maintenance plan for outdoor Wi-Fi and CPE equipment so companies don’t have to worry about damage during the winter when it’s not in use.
In this article, we’ll talk about why offering outdoor Wi-Fi to your customers may help boost your business, offer advertising opportunities, and gain you loyalty. We’ll also go over our Quantum PC Services Wi-Fi and CPE Maintenance Plan and how it can take the headache out of the seasonal care needed to keep equipment in top condition.
What are the Benefits of Outdoor Wi-Fi?
Some small businesses may think that offering outdoor Wi-Fi for customers is just an extra cost with no benefit, they couldn’t be more wrong.
Studies show that offering free Wi-Fi increases:
- Foot traffic into their business
- The amount of time spent there
- The amount of money that customers spend
Between 50% to 79% of small businesses saw customers spend more money after installing free Wi-Fi.
According to Small Business Trends, about half of small businesses just deploying customer Wi-Fi with no particular plan reported more sales, and those that had a mission to serve customers better with that Wi-Fi, saw about 79% of customers buying more at their shop or facility.
Our Quantum Care Wi-Fi Maintenance Team works with many businesses in the Sturgeon Bay, WI area and beyond to help them map out a Wi-Fi plan and keep their outdoor equipment in top shape.
Here are some of the reasons they use a seasonal outdoor Wi-Fi system:
Increases Guest Satisfaction
Whether you’re a mall with an outside courtyard or a campground, guests like that little “extra” they get as a freebie and it makes their time with you more enjoyable.
Differentiates Them from the Competition
People increasingly look for Wi-Fi availability when choosing facilities to visit. If your hotel has Wi-Fi available in outside areas like pools or courtyards, and your competition doesn’t, it sets you apart.
Great Advertising Opportunity
You know that little screen that people see when they’re connecting to a free Wi-Fi? That’s a prime spot to advertise upcoming events or daily specials. You can also get your business included on any Wi-Fi availability maps.
Attract New Customers
While someone on the street may just visit your business initially to get a Wi-Fi connection, there’s a good chance they’ll take a look at what you have to offer and become a new customer.
