How to set up and run an Internet Cafe Business
If you want to start an Internet cafe, The first thing you are going to need is a
Business Plan. This plan enables you to obtain financing, and provides the
following information: 1. Company Description 2. Product or Service 3. Market
Analysis(You need to know your market, customer needs, where they are, how to
reach them, etc.) 4. Strategy and Implementation 5. Management Team 6.
Financial Plan 7. Executive Summary The second thing is Internet Software for
managing time on the computers, and the third thing is merchant client software
unless you will be cash only. All of this software is available free. See links under
"things You'll Need" Capital investment is usually required, and usually not
obtainable through a business loan. Capital Investment can be obtained usually
through Venture Capital and Angel Investers. Again, this is were the importance
of a well done Business plan comes into play. Be prepared though to give up a
percent of your new company, and to share in the management with your
investors. That capital to infuse lifeblood into your CyberCafe comes with strings
attached. For more information on how to apply for business grants see the
A person walking around any city in the world would be sure to find an internet café somewhere. The internet café is one of the establishments made indispensable in an increasingly
interconnected world. Sometimes it leads one to wonder though: with the proliferation of wireless devices, notebook computers, mobile email, smart phones, portable digital assistants and other gadgets, what need is there for in internet café in a wireless world?
Enter an internet café and usually the first thing one notice that more than half of the clientele are playing online or network games. There are more things to do in an internet café though, than surfing the net, playing online games and checking email. An internet café may also offer other services to its clients.
The most common service offered is typing or encoding. This usually appeals to customers who are too lazy to type, or who have little no access to a computer. This service also appeals to busy people who don’t have time to type and edit their material. These customers would simply leave their work to be typed and pick it up after it is completed.
An internet café can also provide specialized or sophisticated software to be available for use by its customers. These software may be kind that the hard to find, or expensive, or utilizes a large amount of memory. An example would be the high end design software that can go for a few
thousand dollars per legal copy. The most common users of high end software in internet cafes are students who need access to the latest software for their schoolwork but can’t afford to buy them.
Another service that an internet café can offer is photo editing. The client might have a picture that can be scanned or digitally edited, fixed up, or restored. While photo editing can be done at home, it takes time to do the more difficult or complicated jobs, and people would rather pay somebody to do the job properly rather that bungle it themselves. Video editing is also another service that can be offered by the internet café, in much the same way as photo editing.
Internet cafés can also offer simple programming solutions. They can offer programs for the home offices or small business, like basic databases or inventory software. Alternatively, these clients can have their software fixed or updated by the techs in the café. The internet café may also offer program installation or software repair to pc or notebook owners.
The internet café may also offer workshops or lessons. These lessons may range from simple
familiarization with the computer to more difficult subjects. One-on-one tutorials by the café staff
may also be provided to clients who require the service.
The internet café can also offer to rent out equipment such as LCD projectors and video editing
tools to events like weddings or presentations.
Some internet cafés have amenities that make them more like meeting places or boardrooms,
where they offer videoconferencing, group discussion tables, and other facilities for meetings and
Getting A Good Location There are three important concepts in marketing: location, location and location. Location
can be a boon or a bane. An Internet café business must be located in a place easily
accessible to prospective customers. Prospective customers are basically everybody—
students doing their projects or research, gamers who’re dying to have the most superior
scores, people whose relatives or loved ones are at abroad and find it very convenient
communicating with them through chat and email and let’s not forget those who have
The first prospective location to look out for is where you’re currently residing. Look around your area—do you think it’s feasible to build one in your neighborhood? Do you
think that people in your area have habitual routines of going to an Internet café but it’s
just too far? Do you think there are gamers and would-be gamers? Do you think that
majority of people in your neighborhood would get a kick out of your Internet shop?
If your answer to all of these is yes, then go build your Internet Café shop—either right
on your garage or right beside your house. Otherwise you just have to go out and hunt for
a prospective location and prepare extra bucks for the rental fees. Most of these locations
should be highly-strategical and very much accessible by a lot of people. In other
words,they have to be heavy in “foot-traffic”. Examples are near schools and malls.
Mall rates and conditions varies depending on the mall itself. It is better if you go directly
to the mall’s general manager and inquire. Have your own letter of intent ready. Usually
they are contract-basis and always renewable.
Site Planning and Construction
At first I’ve got no idea how I want my internet cafe shop to look like. To solve this case, I went on spying to other internet shops around to gather ideas. Most of them have all
glass doors out front either sliding or push/pull mechanism. With regards to tables, some
have their tables constructed in an extended-style while some are individually constructed. Even the lazier internet cafe owners just bought themselves read-made ones which I think are more expensive. If I were you, I’ll go for the first option which is have them constructed manually. I opted for individual tables instead of the elongated style. My reason? To modify space easily and the ease of moving them around. I had them for just 800 pesos each.
A typical table is like 4-5 feet high. To check this, simply sit on a char and estimate the measurement using a ruler. Tell your carpenter or whoever is making your tables to put a simple horizontal foot-rest at the bottom. Then make sure that the keyboard and mouse would rightly fit on the flat where the future customer would lay his/her hands on to surf the cyberspace. I also recommend that you put the CPU on top of the table instead of right beside the monitor. Reason? So that the eyes of the customer won’t divert towards the CPU and won’t do anything stupid in it. They’ll just simply concentrate on the
monitor,keyboard and mouse.
As with chairs, it’s up to you if you want to start out first with monoblock chairs(I did) or you could go straight with comfortable but pricey ones.
There should be a seperate table for the cashier. Either you have it manually constructed or just buy a ready-made. As for me,I was already lazy for it so I just opted for a ready-made. It has drawers with locks where I’ll put the money and some important files. A computer should also be placed here because that’s where you or your employee sits to
manage the billing and also a printer and a scanner should also be placed right on that table. The modem and the router/switch hub should also be near this table. If they no longer fit on the table, you can just improvise by placing a small piece of plywood punched against the wall beside your table and then place your modem and router/switch hub. When a technician from your preferred Internet Service Provider(ISP) arrives and asks you where to put the modem,tell him to place it right near your table. Your floor should be covered with thick vinyl tiles—not the roll-up one that easily gets
teared. Thick vinyl tiles are not just durable. you could also mop it easily and sweep it with ease.
A good electrical wiring is essential. A good electrical bill relies on how good the wiring was set up by your chosen electrician. Plan on how many electrical outlets to put around your shop and then make sure that they are near to where your computers will be placed. It’s up to you if you want to have an airconditioner in the first place. As with me, I never
had one in my shop when I started out. I know that based from the experiences of others, airconditioners eat up most of the energy and it’s responsible of how high the electric bill is. So instead, I just had a big exhaust fan installed and some wall electricfans as well. Make sure that the switches of this appliances such as the fans should not be accessible to the customers or else,it might give them the right to turn them on and off. For the front, you should have a good signage. You should give bypassers that you are an internet cafe and how cozy it is inside. Have a panaflex with your internet cafe’s name
printed on it. Posters can help too—for example,posters of online games and computer
related images. You should also post the list of services you offer inside.Make sure that
you really lure them.You are projecting a lasting impression here.
