Grow your Business with Business Wi-Fi
Did you know that business wi-fi has been shown to increase foot traffic to businesses, increase the length of time customers stay, and improve sales? That’s right! A well designed wi-fi network for your business can actually improve how your business performs.
What is Business Wi-Fi?
Business wi-fi is a manner of offering wi-fi connectivity to your clients, customers, and guests. It can also be used as part of a business intranet, allowing your employees to access shared content within your servers anywhere on the premises.
The ability to connect and socialize digitally has grown exponentially over the years. That trend will continue, unifying the world through a digital connection. Make sure your business is part of that growth by setting up a business wi-fi network.
There are a lot of aspects to business wi-fi. Setting up an effective network is essential part of managed wi-fi services.
- Network cabling and router setup
- Technical support to troubleshoot issues
- IT security and encryption
- Data backup
The network needs to be carefully laid out to keep cables out of site and organized. Security is crucial for your business. Protect your business and client information from hackers, thieves, viruses, and hardware failure.
Data backup services protect your important files from being lost as a result of a hardware failure, malicious virus attack (such as ransomware), and other issues. Regular backups can be accessed and updated as needed so you always have security and peace of mind when it comes to your data.
On a home network, the wi-fi is usually secured by a password that is needed just to access the wi-fi point. With business wi-fi, the connection itself is usually open.
There are several ways to manage a wi-fi connection for your business.
Open connections have no encryption key to access. They also may not have any security once connected.
Set a password on your router that employees or customers need in order to access.
Grant access to just your clients with a login page. It can be as simple as a room number and general password for the login.
Increase social media engagement with a Facebook login. There are no new accounts to create, and the login brings clients right to your Facebook page so they can like, review, or post on it. You can also incentivize logins with check in bonuses (i.e. a discount for checking into a coffee shop).
