What’s the Draw?
Convenience is key in today’s fast-paced climate, and customers always tend to gravitate towards businesses that offer them that convenience. Think fast-food drive thru’s, drive-thru car washes or self-pump gas stations; all of these businesses and other types like them allow customers to get in and out quickly, all while enjoying a service that they need. The same thing goes for ATM machine businesses and the customers that frequent them.
Whenever customers need cash fast, they look for the nearest ATM machine to withdraw money. They will not go out of their way to find an ATM machine (usually), and also they’re more inclined to withdraw cash from an available machine even at times when they don’t need it right away. Because of the habits of convenience-craved customers, it’s beneficial for ATM business owners to create opportunities to service customers as much as they can.
Also, since convenience is a crucial benefit for the ATM business owner to provide to his customer, there are also other important areas that should be incorporated into the owner’s business plan in order for it to work. The ATM owners can achieve this with their machines by:
Make sure that his machines are in high-traffic areas where people look for, need and want the services of an ATM machine.
Don’t place the machines in a hard-to-reach area or off the main traffic-ways, whether that’s by car or foot. It needs to be easy to fair to reach for customers in order to attract their business.
Right along with accessibility, the machines need to also be convenient and a part of the environment in which they’re found. In other words, place ATM machines next to areas where people will actually need them. They will not go out of their way to find a machine, but certainly will use one if it’s available to them.
It’s okay if there are other ATMs in the area as long as your ATM doesn’t have the highest fee. If your ATM is the most convenient, it will still get used. Avoid placing ATM machines in slow retail stores (where traffic is less than 100 people per day). Try to avoid stores or locations where customers can easily get cash back at the register via a debit card.
Machines Working Properly
ATM business owners should always perform routine and consistent checks on their units to ensure that they’re working properly and in order. An alert service where the ATM will send you a text message can help avoid down times. Keep them stocked with sufficient cash in ideal increments (we can help determine the best denomination for your location type) and using our online monitoring service you can always check to see if your ATM has enough funds. Routine checks should also include software updating and checking the machine’s hardware and external components for any signs of wear and tear.
Once an ATM machine has established itself as a steady, consistent and reliable machine in an area, people learn to trust it and will give their business to that machine whenever they’re in need of fast cash or banking transactions. In the end, this turns out to be a win-win situation for both the ATM owner and the customer.
