How to Start a Computer Club
Previously, when not everyone could afford to buy a computer for their child, computer clubs brought a very good and a steady income to their owners. However, the popularity of computer clubs has rapidly came down over the years. It doesn’t receive as many customers as it used to be, say five to ten years ago as most of the children and teenagers nowadays have computers at their homes.
Despite the low popularity, many people prefer to spend their time and money in computer clubs especially due to various online RPG and team games. With this in mind, you may want to open a computer club business and bring your home a satisfactory, if not the delightful, income. Read on to learn the requirements for starting your own computer club.
There are many steps involved in starting a computer club but your first and the most important step must begin with deciding on how many computer clubs your proposed club will accommodate. Generally, a desirable number is around 10 -15 computers in the initial stage. Find a rented room for your computer club.
Next, purchase the necessary equipment, computers, tables etc. If you don’t have the required investment, then it is worthwhile that you find a wholesale supplier and take everything you need on a credit.
