  • computer shop?

    been there. done that. he he.

    sa dami ng computer dito sa Pilipinas ngayon, ang hirap ng kumita dyan. but i guess it would be allright for a steady income and a sort of front( for your net earnings!  :D  )

    for a start, basic na ngayon ang fast and heavily loaded computers. (at least 6 for starters)

    next, internet connection (must be dsl for all those online games that kids play today.

    of course, kelangan basic computer knowledge, for troubleshooting and networking.

    basic gaming knowledge is a must!

    lastly, dont overlook your computer security. those kids like to hack and look at things they dont understand.

    if anyone has a question or wants a setup, contact me. for a fee of course. he he. (another basic, i might add)

  • Tingin ko rin saturated na ang internet café market, unless maka-jackpot ka sa location na ikaw lang ang may ganung shop at wala masyadong access sa internet o PC ang mga taga-doon. Sobra din ako mag-net café dati nung nasa Pinas pa ako at eto ang mga kinaayawan ko (na sana ay wag niyong gawin sa shop nyo):


    1 - Hindi gumaganang aircon. Although kahit mainit sa loob, basta sikat ang shop mo (siguro dahil mura rates), dudumugin ka pa rin. Pero babalik-balikan ka ng mga suki mo kung kumportable sa loob.

    2 - Walang ambience. Kahit papano, lagyan nyo man lang sana ng design o kahit anung pampaganda yung shop niyo. Wag naman sanang isang kuwadradong kuwarto lang tapos may computer at silya at table tapos yun na. Mas maganda kung me kung anung naka-display o design (pero yung maganda, wag naman bold o kaya mukhang mumurahing design). Saka sana me masarap na amoy sa loob (wag car freshener ang gamitin nyo!)

    3 - Maruming PC, keybord, silya, etc. Sana laging malinis. Ipagbawal ang pagkain sa harap ng PC. O kaya maglagay ng table na dun pede kainan o kaya small space sa tabi nung tao na dun pede ilagay yung pagkain. Pwede kasing malagyan ng tira-tirang pagkain yung keyboard o matapunan ng drinks na nagpapadumi.

    4 - Walang promo o discount. Nakakatulong kung me promo o discount minsan-minsan. Pede yung me stamp o record na kapag naka-10 hours ka na net halimbawa me free 1 hour o kaya kung sino yung may pinakamaraming hours after a month e me prize na 5 hours free.

    5. Mabagal o laging napuputol ang net. Siyempre pa, pag laging napuputol ang net o kaya sobrang bagal, don't expect na babalikan yung shop mo. Wag masyado magtipid sa connection. Magbayad ng mejo mahal para sa isang reliable na net connection.

    Cge, yan muna, masyado na ata akong nasosobrahan sa pag-wish nde naman ako dadaan sa net cafe nyo hehe.. Anyway, gudlak sa mga magtatayo ng net cafe business!

  • uyy, maganda yan ah. if they can compete with other computer cafe and matatag ang campaign for costumer recall, i'll think theyre gonna be ok. they should target na gawing itong mala mcdonalds or jollibee. people goes there not because of the food but because its trusted. ganon din siguro sa computer shops.

    Medyo nagbababaan na rin ang mga price nila, ngaun meron ng 768kbps for 8K , 1Mbps for 14.5K a month and etc.


    Hehehe, marami pa rin umaasa sa ganitong business, oo tama ngang madali lng itong i-setup ika nga with the technical know-hows and with a little computer background pero dapat tignan nyo rin certain factors na makaka-apekto sa business mo.

    Well sa ngaun, kahit saang lugar ka na pumunta eh marami ng nagtatabihang computer shops at mahirap na talaga ang makipag-kompetensya. Payo ko lng is

    1. Best to consider ay ang strategic location ng pagtatayuan mo ng business. Maraming tao bah sa lugar? malapit bah sa schools or madaling puntahan at accessible sa mga bata at ordinaryong tao. Kasi dapat secure din sya dibah para sa safety ng shop mo at mga clients.
    2. Kung meron bang magandang provider sa lugar mo, kasi dito ka rin matatalo kung hindi maganda ang Internet connection mo, so consider the best provider din.
    3. Sa computers na kukunin dapat fully loaded na sya and better to invest for an amount that would benefit you for a long term. Kasi sa softwares pa lng titibain ka ng Microsoft ngunit mas maganda pa rin kung licensed na lahat ng softwares mo kahit sa OS at games kung magpapalaro ka. Dahil dito makakasigurado ka na malinis at maayos ang mga PC mo;)
    4. At ang huli kung panoh mo na i-manage ng tama ang cafe, marami sa ngaun bukas d2 sarado doon, kasi ang ibah nga hindi napaghandaan kung anong problema ang darating, so always may contingency plans ka para buhay pa rin ang business.

     Good luck sa business!!!

    Sa arena ng computer shops, ganyan na tlga ang nangyayari, dito sa amin, marami na rin ang nagpapatayan ng presyo kasi meron na rin nagbibigay ng 10/hr kya sabi ko nga factors din iyan, so nasa iyo kung anong magandang paraan, pwede pagandahan ng customer service, lugar, PC, Inet connection. So d2 cguradong babalikan ka pa rin ng mga clients mo;)

  • Maganda rin po ito, parang association ng mga computer shop owners, nataon din ata itong ginawa noong nagkaroon na ng raid ang mga BSA at NBI sa mga shops na gumagamit ng pirated softwares.  Magandang sumali sa association sa mga lugar nyo, dito may mga policy at siguradong controlado ang mga rates ng mga membro dito.;)
