Questions re: internet shop biz
« on: May 27, 2008, 02:09:24 pm »
i have a few questions regarding this business.

just an estimate, how many computer sets would fit a 50 sq meter commercial space?

okay po ba mamili sa gilmore regarding wholesale PCs? kasi taga palawan pa po kami..

amd po ba o intel for processor, more on games po kasi..  balak namin sana kumuha ng core2duo po..

any suggestions or reactions would be highly appreciated.

thanks..

As in any legit biz, make sure you have an accountant (preferrably a CPA---some would apply but they are not CPA, just bookepers or runners getting permits here and there and having your documents signed by a real CPA) and even a lawyer to consult with later (if a need will arise).

INternet shop biz is RETAIL---you get cash daily. you need to strengthen protecting that incoming daily cash---VERY tight cashiering system, WELL SCREENED manpower. My accountant tells me this is a reality: unless your cashiering system is in place and you choose manpower well, there will always be PILFERAGE---your manpower can make more than he/she should:)


May be practical to go PLDT MYDSL BIZ but it's up to you to compare.
Good luck!

I would really like to discourage you to entering this type of business...reasons: saturated market, long ROI, high maintenance, everything is going up but rental rate is going lower, consider the price war...

But if your area still covers the 25/hr rental rate...go for it, if not dont waste your time and investment.

Can you explain more? Medyo kasi dati ko na gusto ang internet shop since I am frequently using internet for my business din....

hmm....here is my 50 cents opinion:

in random...

1. Rental Rate: In order for a shop to earn or at least have a profit... rental rate should be 30/up...pero today there are internet cafes that offers internet /online game access for as low as 5/hr...the average rental rate in the country is 15/hr and is not enough to give you a profit, you will earn but only enough to pay the monthly expenses (break even or abunado pa)...

2. High maintenance...lalo na if you cater for online game....keyboards, mouse and headset are the most common na madalas palitan, tapos kung me pasaway pa na client na feeling  expert sa paginstall and uninstall ng kung anu anung game hack...patay na...

3. high overhead...low income...try to make a study of your overhead expense....electricity, dsl/phone line, water (syempre lalo na sa me mga cr), rental, manpower salary....

4. tumingin ka sa kaliwat kanan, mapapansin mo na wala pang isang metro ang layo me internetan na...

5. Compute your ROI....tagal masyado if ang rental rate mo is 15/hr....

............................

advice ko lang...make a thorough study for this kind of business....but if you will consider this as secondary service sa business mo ok lang...pero kung internet cafe lang as the prime business...waaah talo.

hi, thanks for the advice.. but here in Palawan, di pa naman po masyadong saturated ang market.. rental fees here range from 15-25 pesos an hour..

hopefully maging maayos pa rin ang biz. :)

Just make sure lang na ang pwesto mo is dun sa market ng 25/hr wag kang tatabi sa 15/hr malamang me price war dun...

good luck sa business....

how about just simply internet surfing? how profitable will it be? and how much do you think will you charge ur clients per hour? cause I noticed that  internet gaming has a lot of upgrading needed! I have an idea of renting out laptops just for internet surfing, with small burger place on it.

forgot to tell that I own the commercial space pala, and also, im thinking about the safest way to avoid the laptop being stolen! anyway here in the US (newyork) ay tinatapon lang yung laptop ng mayayaman after 2-3 years of use, meron ding for sale na  sobrang mura!  almost new pa tlaga! so i planning to collect laptop then ship it to PI, so I could use it as a laptop rental business there.  ;)

still....20-25/hr. Laptop cost too much and it could easily be snatch. I would suggest a low cost desktop and invest on LCD monitors. focus more on your burger business and make sure your internet browsing a second priority. Ok na mataas ang rate mo sa browsing just make sure that your internet connection is fast enough. You have to make it a lil cozy...anyway, alamin mo muna ang target market mo mamaya kasi mas marami ang gamers sa area mo which is very common scenario sa mga internet cafe. Pero nasa sa iyo din yan if how would you introduce your shop sa market.

still i insist if you are putting an internet cafe business never ever low your rate to 20 pesos or your are heading for disaster...

i think icafe business owners in the philippines should be educated....parang tayo lang ng tayo eh...walang proper planning....

Hindi porke maraming tao at puno ang shop eh malakas na...oo me tao nga pero ang tanong kumita ba?

thnks for the reply! yung nga din ang naisip ko na ipapasadya yung lock with cadena! about the base, merong nabibiling fan support para hindi mag overheat. laking tipid ko na ito since I would not invest to buy PC!  kung bumili man ako hindi rin masyadong kamahalan, $200-$250 dell or HP n yun!(1-2 year older models), dapat lang maayos yung wifi connection ko! sa DLSU area ksi yung commercial/ residential place ko. And regarding security issue, I will make sure na the one who's renting the cmpter has a valid ID, otherwise no rental. cguro mag lalagay din ako ng photocopy and cell repair in the future para mamaximize ung space. ;)
