Now on to another idea I had while we were in California.
I made the uber mistake of leaving my charger at home for my laptop. I had an almost fully charged 9 hour battery, but even that would be eaten up pretty quick. So I checked email sparingly, facebooked a little, and looked up a couple of California maps.
I did go to Radio Shack and Staples to check on buying a Universal Charger, but I didn't want to spend $100 on a charger that would only get used on trips. So I thought to myself, how nice it would be, to take my computer somewhere to get it fully charged...like a radio shack or best buy type place.
Now I know most folks look for this type of service to be free, but I really think you could charge a minimal fee and get people through the doors of your business. Or you could group this "free" service with the purchase of some other item. Either way, I think this could entice people into your store. Look at this way. Its a $100 investment for your company that could pay 10 times over in sales at the counter.
