Gardening = New ATM Placement?

So I don’t exactly have a green thumb but if gardening helps me get new ATMs placed then perhaps I’ll pick up the gardening hobby.

Sunday Kathy, her older sister and I were gardening all day at our house. It is so not fun for me, but alas it’s my house too. Well I began to dig out one of our rose bushes because we were moving it.

Next thing you know: CRACK! SPLAT!

I look and there apparently was a robin’s next in there and 3 little robin’s eggs cracked. I felt soooo horrible (I’m a huge animal person.) Anyway, Kathy and her sister told me to stop with the bush and get some lunch for all of us.

I head to a local place around us that makes cheese steaks. They have a minimum for credit card orders but I forgot what it was. I ask the lady. She said $10.

I say no problem. Then I follow that up with…..are you ready for this? “Have you guys ever thought about putting an ATM in here?”

Simple, eh? It’s one of the key phrases I teach in my ATM Business Blueprint course.

Well she proceeded to tell me that they use to have one but it was always out of order and the ATM owners never kept it filled with cash. So they got rid of it.

I told her about how I own a small, local ATM business and I live 5 minutes away so keeping it in service and loaded with cash isn’t an issue.

She was thrilled and gave me the owners name and phone number. Now I left the owner today and I don’t know if we’ll end up putting a machine there or not, but the point of this entire post was for you to learn this key phrase: “Have you ever thought about putting an ATM in here?”

New ATM Location is Awesome!



I told you the other day that Kathy and I placed our ATM at a new location. It’s a cash-only restaurant in a college town.

Now, we’ve only had it in there since Saturday, 3 days so far. But I have to tell you that the first day we put it in, it had more hits in the 2 months that we got when we had it in that Chinese buffet place! They had 15 hits on Saturday, folks! That’s awesome. I can only wish they would get 15 hits everyday lol But so far, so good even though it’s not 15 hits a day. I think they had about 8 yesterday and around that many today as well.




They are definitely going to kick ass for sure. We got the contract signed today (as the owners were out of town on Saturday.) The owner mentioned lowering the fee to $2 instead of $2.25. We currently have the fee set to $2.25 and we give the owner .25 per valid transaction.

He said he wasn’t that concerned about the .25 and just wanted to be fair to folks. I informed him that thus far people are hitting the heck out of the machine and the extra .25 doesn’t seem to be bothering them. He said he’d like to see how it does in a month and then we’ll determine if we should lower it or leave it the same. He and his wife seem really nice.

I don’t think the extra 25 cents is going to make less people use the machine at all. But the thing I don’t get is that these folks have another restaurant in a different city and they have an ATM in that restaurant….so I’m thinking “why wouldn’t they use that ATM company if they were thinking of putting one in this location too?” Odd. But I’m super happy about it. Heck if things go well, perhaps we’ll get the other location too.

Anyway, there’s all different ways you can structure profit sharing to entice site owners to let you place your machine there. Perhaps, I’ll do a video in the future going over a few (here’s my ATM profit sharing video.) Of course, our favorite is just raising the fee .25 and paying the site owner .25!

If you have any specific questions about profit sharing with locations who let you put your ATM there, just leave ’em below and I’ll be more than happy to answer them.

ATM Placement – New Chinese place? New Strip Club? New Cash Only business?



ATM Placement is very critical to your ATM business. Well that is if you want to grow your passive income with ATM’s. We currently have an ATM that we bought because it was on sale just sitting in a warehouse waiting for us to find a place for it. (Note: I recommend not buying an ATM until you have it placed. I don’t care how good of a deal it is. Ask me how I know?)

Anywho, we’ve been slacking with ATM Placement for this 5th machine. Don’t ask me why? Because it’s costing us money. Yeah, it is. $15 a month (for the wireless modem.) We’ve had the machine since I believe November. Mhm. I know. You can yell at me if you’d like….I’m a big girl….I can take it. So that’s $75 it’s cost us to have this machine so far. Actually it’s more than that because the modem peeps just lowered their pricing. I’d say closer to $100 and that doesn’t include purchase cost.

I’ve contacted places here and there but nothing all that fascinating and my follow up was lacking. I did follow up relentlessly with another strip club tho (I wonder why? $7 surcharges maybe? lol) Anyway, he’s not interested I don’t think.

Now the other day when I went door knocking to find apartment buildings for sale, remember? Well the only reason I went door knocking for apartment buildings was because I was waiting until the lunch traffic rush was over so I could talk to some chinese restaurants to see about placing our ATM there.




That day I hit up only 3 restaurants (2 chinese places and a 24 hour diner.) We have a chinese place already……..the chinese place that we have is our highest in transaction volume every month (last month it did 277 hits.) Our strip club is our highest in dollars made every month because of the high surcharge (last month they had 53 hits….at $7 a pop.) The chinese place we have currently we partnered with someone so we only get 50 percent of those profits. Strip club we get 100%.

So when I walked into the first chinese place the lady there seemed reallllly interested. I explained how everything worked and we even picked out a spot for the ATM machine in their location. This chinese place was just recently voted Best Chinese Food in the tri-county by the local paper. I was speaking to the manager and she told me to call her Thursday after she talks to the owners but she said “we’ll probably do it though.” (I was doing the happy dance inside by the way, but I was able to compose myself in front of her.)

The other chinese place the owners/manager wasn’t there when I went. The 24/7 diner he was into it and said he already interviewed other ATM people. I’ll follow up with him but we’re more interested in the chinese place. I spoke to the chinese place manager yesterday and she said “Yes, they are doing it.” Hehehe so today Kathy and I will go and sign the contract with them and we’ll set up an installation time with them next week. Rock on.

Now we went to our strip club to fill it yesterday and got to talking to the owner, who is an absolute sweetheart. He told us about his new manager and how he has all kinds of connections. (and from the conversation I gathered he has money and so do his connections. Can you say private money lender?) Anyway, we were talking about this one strip club we want to get into and he said “oh he knows people there. He knows the managers and the owner. I’ll get him to get you face time in there so you can talk with them at least.” We are excited about that cuz they blew me off over the phone. Soooo that’s some good news. Oh and last night we had to go back there to fix a problem with the machine. I told them to unplug it and that should do it….sure enough by the time we got there it had fixed itself lol But we got free drinks from it and 2 free strip club shirts lmao

Oh and the reason we’re so excited about this new manager and his connections is because just with this one strip club that he’s going to try to get us face time with the manager or the owner….well this strip club is one of the best, top-notch strip clubs around. Classy doesn’t really feel ummm right when talking about a strip club, but for lack of a better word it is a very classy, high class, $$$$ expensive strip club…which Perfect girls (I been there twice when I was younger lol I know, I know….I was taken there by some guy friends for my birthday and I forget why the 2nd time.) But anyway, it would be an awesome place to get in to is my point.

And today, Kathy was out trying to get us some business. I’m so proud of her. I’m usually the one going into businesses and talking to folks but today she found a cash only deli by accident and started talking to them about an ATM. She quick ran home and printed out brochures and a business card for them and took it back. When she got back the husband and wife business owner were both there and they said they’d be interest they just want to read over the information (btw, we don’t have a machine for them, we’ll have to buy one lol but we know a guy who is selling a used machine for $800. It’s only 2 yrs. old. So we’d be cool with that.)

We’re working on the apartment building business and we’re going to have a strategy session today (thanks Shae) and then I’ll post about what’s going on with that.
