Is Cyber Cafe Business still profitable in 2020?
I would like to know if cyber cafe business is still profitable in Nigeria. I know that many people still require some services from there, but is it really worth it? Can one still make good money from cyber cafe business in Nigeria?
Cybercafe business is not a thing one should consider as a business these days especially in this computer age that even teenagers now have easy access to the internet on their own. As we can see, most of the things we needed to do before at the cybercafe like logging in to Facebook, accesing our mails, we can easily do that now on our smartphones without having to step out of our comfort zone.
If we have to consider the investments involved in starting this business ranging from acquiring the desktops to the setting up and maintenance, I’d say it may not be worth it when compared to the profit to be realised (may even result into loss).
However, some people are still in the business, majorly those who have a strong customer base and facilities. But one thing I realised is helping them is that they collaborate with big organisations that requires people to complete some particular registrations at the cybercafe and also they partner with examination bodies so they use their cybercafe as examination centers. These are some ways I can say the major cyber cafes that are still standing today make their profits.
Well, there is something I always say; no business is outdated and there is no
business that you can’t still make your money from – depending on how you
package or repackage it. Talking about cybercafé, of course yes, you. Can. Still. Make.
Your. Own. Money! Just repackage it. For instance; I, personally still make use of cybercafé
till date and I pay them . How? Why? For what na? You subscribe for one month and
then go with your system or mobile phone to use Wi-Fi and electrical power supply for the whole day.
For the two places I use here; one is monthly payment and the other one we pay per hour.
Believe me , this guys still make cool money from it. Because if You an IT person, you will know how
much data we consume daily on works and how serious we do need power supply.
To me, cyber cafe is no longer a profitable business at all. As we can even see, many of the cyber cafes are no longer in existence. This is because so many things we used to go to the cafe to do can now be done on our mobile phone and almost everyone has access to an Android phone . So such businesses are not lucrative anymore.
Really, cybercafe business is one of the least business that should be considered these days.
However, you can’t tell, you can choose to go into it and thrive.
I think what matters majorly is do you have a plan, a good plan I mean.
And where’s your target location?
I think if these things are in place then its not a bad idea. I can recommend tertiary institutions as a location to setup.
I can remember when I was in the university, there were numerous registrations that we needed to do and can only be done at the cafe, the new intakes (fresher’s, as we fondly call them) also had a lot of registrations, and many other things that could only be done at the cybercafe.
So, really it can still be considered, because people still do well with it as a business.
You can as well go for it.
I wish you all the best.
