New developments in accessibility are designed all the time, and these installations improve the lives of many Americans by increasing their access to businesses and other institutions. Your company could set a good example by equipping your location with helpful wheel chair lifts. This overview explains why an elevator installation will be great for your business.
- New Customer Niches: According to the United States Census Bureau, 2.7 million Americans use a wheel chair every day. Another 9.1 million Americans use another walking aide such as a full walker or supportive cane. Poor accessibility essentially turns away this entire portion of the population. Not only will you lose the business of these patrons and customers, but you may also be fined for not being ADA compliant.
- Word-of-Mouth Advertising: In today’s highly connected world, people with shared interests are among your most valuable means of advertising. If some of your customers with limited mobility see that you are making your business more accessible, they will share this information with their network of friends and family who may be interested in your services. This opens an avenue of word-of-mouth advertising that you would never have had otherwise.
- Community Involvement: Numerous local programs reach out to members of the community who have disabilities. Consider demonstrating your business’ commitment to greater accessibility by partnering with one such organization to hold a fundraiser or get-together. Installing a wheelchair lift gives your business a great opportunity to reach out to members of the community and show that you care about all of your customers.
