How Wi-Fi Can Help Landlords Attract New Tenants
Looking for new tenants can sometimes be overwhelming and stressful! With our increasing dependence on Internet access, commercial landlords have the perfect opportunity to attract new tenants.
Offering Wi-Fi access is a relatively inexpensive and easy way to attract new tenants and retain high-quality existing tenants.
Wi-Fi is attractive to all levels of commercial tenants, as it has benefits for tenants as well as their customers.
When first looking into setting up a wireless network for a commercial building, the landlord must ensure that the infrastructure is in place. The size of the structure will determine the cost of the system required to offer a stable Wi-Fi network for tenants. The stability and consistency of the Wi-Fi signal will ultimately determine how much value the tenants will place on the new service.
The property owner will need to confirm whether their Internet service provider will allow free Internet access to patrons. Not every provider will allow this, so it is a good idea to check before you set up the infrastructure. Contact your provider and confirm the monthly cost of the service and any limitations or added expenses you may encounter in order to offer free Wi-Fi access in your building.
The success of the Wi-Fi service will be determined by how well the service is promoted. There should be clearly posted signage at retail outlets.
Office lease agreements should be amended to reflect the inclusion of Wi-Fi Internet service within the building. Property owners will benefit by offering a valuable service to tenants for a relatively small monthly fee.
