Picture the scene. You walk into a café, you’ve ran out data and you need a WiFi signal to WhatsApp your partner so that she can pick you up! You say to the friendly waiter “hi, I was just wondering if you had WiFi in here? I really need to call my partner” The waiter pauses nervously before replying “No…sorry we don’t, but I think there is a café down the road that does…?” You leave, you walk to the café down the road, you sit down to wait and while you’re waiting you buy a coffee and a slice of cake. You’ve taken your business elsewhere.
Picture the scene. You and your friends are looking to book a restaurant; and you all love Instagram OBVIOUSLY. You find a place that is a little out the way, an hour outside of the city. You arrive and instantly you’re in love! The atmosphere is great and the staff are friendly, the food comes out and it is beautiful! You all whip your phones out to post a photo on Instagram, but, what’s this?! No signal… your data won’t work out here in the sticks. You flag down a passing waitress “excuse me, I’m really sorry but could we trouble you for the WiFi password?” The waitress is clearly in a rush replying “WiFi? Sorry we don’t have that here”. Despondent, and although you loved the restaurant, you never return.
Picture the scene. You’re out wedding dress shopping with your Mum and sisters. You’re having so much fun. Your bridesmaids are all at work but have demanded photos of ALL dress potentials, naturally. MMS messages cost £1 each on your network, and there’s 5 bridesmaids, you’re saving money for your big day there’s no way you can afford a £50+ phone bill! The solution? It’s a simple one. The bridal boutique has WiFi, surely? This is 2016 after all! So one of your sisters goes over to the hostess, they have a whispered interchange, your sister comes back over and says “he’s saying they don’t have WiFi here…” you reply with an “are you serious?” You get a second opinion. The truth is confirmed. You don’t buy your wedding dress from this particular boutique.
If your business had opted for an Essex WiFi business package, then things would’ve turned out differently…
Picture the scene……. The waiter says confidently “Yes sir we do” he then points you to a sign on the wall with the password on it. You sit and WhatsApp your partner, she arrives with a smile on her face and sits down in the seat opposite you. “This is a lovely place, are you hungry?” You say that you are, and you both enjoy a panini, a mocha each and a slice of cake to share. You have a wonderful experience, and you vow to return someday soon.
Picture the scene……. “Excuse me, I’m really sorry but could we trouble you for the WiFi password?” the waitress stops and says politely “of course, the password is Essex WiFi” you thank her and she leaves. You and your three friends take fantastic close ups of your meals. The photos do incredibly well and get a ton of likes. The word is spread, for weeks after people seem to flock to the restaurant. Business booms!
Picture scene…….
