5 Benefits From Commercial Phone Charging Solutions
May 17, 2016 | By The Veloxity Team |
Commercial phone charging can have many benefits for both your business and your customers – here’s a list of 5 benefits you can take advantage of:
- Engage customers
Since charging stations and kiosks are an emerging technology and a growing trend, there’s a curiosity factor associated with them. People will stop to check them out. If the charging solution is in your booth at a trade show, or just in your store, it can be a perfect time for you to start up a conversation and give your pitch.
- Increase customer satisfaction
Because of the benefit they provide, charging stations are also a great way to increase customer satisfaction. Having a dead cell phone battery can be as frustrating as forgetting your wallet, so providing an instant solution will delight any customer. Byron Carlock, PwC’s U.S. real estate practice leader, said, “Consumers are seeking retail ‘experiences’ over simple purchase transactions, which is inspiring landlords and retailers to collaborate on making the destination more enjoyable, convenient and memorable.”
- Generate positive reviews for your business
About 88% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations from people they know. That means an extra star on Yelp can do wonders for your bottom line. If you go above and beyond for your customers and provide a unique amenity, then they’ll have more reasons to say great things about your business.
- Bridge the gap between in-store and online experiences
An estimated 75% of shoppers use their mobile devices in-store. According to the CEO of InReality, Gary Lee, “Traditional in-store marketing is still critically important to shoppers, but technology, especially mobile, is having an impact on the store – changing the shopper’s path to purchase and calling for brands and retailers to start rethinking in-store strategies.” While in your brick-and-mortar, customers research products, price shop, and sometimes even make purchases with their phones. Providing charging solutions will allow those customers to still use their phones to do research if their batteries happen to be running low.
- Show your business keeps up with trends
Charging kiosks are the most popular trade show addition, and a benefit desired by customers. Show prospects that your business is technologically savvy and always looking out for the “next big thing.” They’ll feel more comfortable knowing you strive to be innovative and do whatever is necessary to make their life easier.
