Starting A Computer Consulting Business Business Overview:

If you are the go-to computer person in your social circle, it’s time to stop fixing computers for free and consider starting a computer consulting business. Knowing the basics of how computers work is really the only thing you need to start a computer consulting business. Beyond the basics, you can quickly learn how to fix just about any computer issue by reading computer manuals and guidebooks and accessing troubleshooting websites. This is what separates those with computer issues and those who are able to fix them—the willingness to try without fear. Of course you will want to have a solid computer consulting business plan in place that maps out your fee schedule, your work guarantee, and your business details in general, including how you will build your customer base. Once you’ve got a few clients and your workload is growing, you can start thinking of ways to expand on this business idea beyond fixing computers and entice your customers to include add-ons and upgrades to their existing systems. When this online business idea really takes off, you can consider farming out your repair and upgrade work to employees while you work on advertising and growing your consulting business. Even as a basic enterprise the computer consulting business can be very rewarding, both personally and financially.
