3 ways to monetize wifi data

by AbelCrypto In reply to How do you monetize free ...

There are a few ways you can do this:

1. sell advertising space on the sign up page. When people are first prompted to join the wifi you can redirect them to a browser page that has relevant ads on
2. Sell the data to the owner - if you're giving away free wifi in a shop, or gym or any other type of commercial property you can collect basic stats on who has signed up, type of device, OS etc. All of this helps to build up a picture of who has used that commercial space, which is really valuable for estimating things like footfall etc.
3. Sell to other third parties. If the people that own the space don't want the data, think about whether their competitors might find it useful and approach them.
