What’s a good venue for your Brick stations?
Signed as a Brick partner and now in the preparation phase of building your shared powerbank network? Congratulations! The work ahead of you might feel overwhelming, but you’re in good hands and in the right place to find information!
First and foremost, try to have fun during the first phase of building your network! Yes, it will take time and won’t happen overnight. It will require you to meet with many different people and venues. But it’s also very exciting as you’re building your own business!
Powerbank station placement
Brick powerbank stations are useful in many settings. Truth be told, any location where people are likely to spend a significant amount of time and need to charge their devices can be a good venue for your powerbank stations.
You, as a Brick partner, know your market better than anyone else. We could simply list a bunch of venues for you to go to, but a) what’s the fun in that, b) we don’t want to tell you how to run your business, and c) we want you to be creative when brainstorming. That’s why we have a few pointers to help you come up with venues in your market!
Identify the target audience
Consider the demographic you want to target. Who will be using the powerbank stations? If you’re thinking of targeting students, then college campuses and libraries could be suitable venues. If you want to target business professionals, then airports and workplaces could work!
Assess the foot traffic
Evaluate the number of people who pass through the location or venue each day. The higher the foot traffic, the more likely the powerbank station will be used.
Analyze the length of stay
This is an important one. Consider the amount of time people typically spend at a venue. If people spend a significant amount of time at the location, they may need to charge their devices during their stay. Venues, such as fast-food restaurants and kiosks, where people don’t spend a lot of time are not the best locations to place a station.
Analyze the size of the venue
We might be getting ahead of ourselves here, but it’s good to think about. Consider the venue size to determine how many powerbank stations are required to serve the users. For example, larger venues may need a large station (e.g., 48-slot station) whereas smaller venues could succeed with a smaller station (e.g., 6-slot station).
To help get you started with brainstorming, here are some venues where you can find a Brick powerbank station in +23 markets!
- Public transport
As you can see, there’s no limit to venues or ideas. We’re excited to see where you’ll place your stations!
By considering these pointers, you can brainstorm and select the best venues for your first powerbank stations or expansion. If you’re in need of some help, you can always contact your partner success manager or ask the Brick community channel for some tips. You’re never alone!
But never forget that, regardless of the type of venue, onboarding a venue is your key to success!
