Today’s buyer, spectator, and all around average person stays glued to their mobile phones. We are living in the middle of a tech boom, and using technology to make decisions ranging from what movie to see, to creating a grocery shopping list, to add further enjoyment to spectator sports, has become second nature. There are a number of industries and businesses that can certainly expect to see higher revenue from investing in a commercial cell phone charging station (or several). This article is intended to help educate business owners, regional managers, directors, and planners learn why a cell phone charging station adds value to various types of retail and public spaces.
Cell Phone Charging Station for Sports Stadiums
Adding a cell phone charging station to multiple locations in a sports stadium can be a great way to increase ticket sales and revenue from concessions and souvenir stands. Think about the typical behavior of someone at a MLB game or a college football game: people are taking tons of photos, posting them to social media, are looking up other scores in real time across the league, and sometimes they listen to the game being called. Then there’s the universal need for a phone all people have: to be reached in the event of an emergency, and to stay in touch with friends and family. A 2016 Quora report revealed that more than 40 percent of people who attend sports events are constantly concerned about their phones running out of battery power. That said, by installing a multi-device cell phone charging station throughout a stadium, in places where the field is visible, and near concession stands and souvenir shops, people are more inclined to go to games, and spend money on food and other items.
Cell Phone Charging Stations for School Campuses and Libraries
Having a multi-device cell phone charging station at school campuses and libraries not only enhances the student and guest experience, it also enhances safety measures. Unfortunately, school violence, namely shootings, have gone up, and only continue to do so. By having a cell phone charging station located throughout a campus and libraries, students and parents will feel safer and have greater confidence, and employees and faculty members will enjoy the same benefits.
Adding a Cell Phone Charging Station to Retail Stores Increases Sales
Shopping is an activity enjoyed by millions that can often monopolize a good chunk of the day, if not all of it. And needless to say, shoppers are concerned about their phones dying. Today’s buyers are savvy; they use their mobile devices to read product reviews, compare products, and price-check. In fact, multiple studies show that when customers have the ability to research products in the store, they are more likely to buy. Furthermore, when customers know that a store has a cell phone charging station, they are significantly more inclined to go into that store, charge their phones, and browse the aisles, and we all know that more foot traffic adds to higher sales.
