Find a Location
You need to find a good location to succeed. Look for areas with little or no cyber café. Make sure the location is busy and in a commercial area. Ideal locations are near schools, residential areas and public markets.
The types of equipment you need are desktop computers and CPU. You need a 4G modem, tables, chairs and a printer. Other equipment’s are scanners, photocopy machine and laser jet printer.
Register the business as a one man business and get a business name. You might consider insurance cover and don’t forget to pay your tax.
Open the Shop
Once you have bought the computer system get someone to do the networking. Once that is completed, check your systems and internet connection. You need a front desk computer to control the others and generate tokens. To attract traffic place a signboard in front of the shop.
