Some other places that will make sense to run it include:
- A high traffic location like motor parks.
- Close to mobile phone repair parts business dealers.
- Close to dealers on mobile phones (this include marketers of both fairly used and new phones).
- Close to other mobile phone accessories dealers, if they don't make good profit they wouldn't have remained there.

- Advertise your business

This doesn't necessarily mean advertising your product on a TV or newspaper, staying in a good location is already enough advert and can contribute positively towards helping you generate profit from the business.
If you want to take your business to a more advanced level, you can also consider creating a website with a custom domain to enable your customers contact you easily.

You might skip this stage in the early stages of the business, but as you advance, it'll be great to put it into consideration.
