New opportunities for marine installers

Hey there marine installers! This is the time of year when you’re probably very busy. Your customers are starting to take their boats out of dry dock and get them ready for another summer of fun on the water. You might be thinking that this is the wrong time to be thinking about extra work opportunities. But hey, this is the time of year when you make your money. Why not think about some ways to make a little more on every job?

Solid Signal has products and services which will help you make more cash during the busy season and keep your customers even happier. The world of marine electronics isn’t just about speedometers and radios anymore, and there’s a lot more you can do with the skills you already have. Here are a few examples.

Cell Phone Signal Boosters

It’s the 2020s. No one wants to feel disconnected. With a cell phone signal booster, it can be possible to get voice and data up to ten miles offshore. This is enough for most pleasure craft. Cell phone boosters designed for small offices also work great with boats, and there are marine-specific antenna options if you want to use existing mounting points. If you’ve installed a radio, you can install a cell booster.

Cellular routers and Wi-Fi

It’s great to supply good cell service to the people, but what about the devices? Cellular routers take cell signal and convert it into Wi-Fi and wired internet. This can be used for streaming boxes, laptops, and virtually anything else. There’s no limit to what you can do. Best of all these devices take very little installation other than mounting a small box where you want it to be. It’s a great upsell opportunity.

Satellite internet

You already know about satellite TV for boats. Did you know that satellite internet for boats is faster and less expensive than ever? The new antennas are smaller than satellite TV domes. It’s finally possible to stream HD using satellite internet, and your customers will pay less than ever.

Best of all, you can get incentives and monthly rebates for every customer who signs up for satellite internet through you. It’s the gift that keeps on giving… to you!
