Hi all...I'm thinking about starting my own computer business here's my game plan so far...but I'm not where close to the end product:
Start by word-of-mouth advertising, nothing major like newspaper ads or ads that cost me any money
I'm not looking for major profits, I'm only 16 so I'm not supporting myself or anything, and I have another part time job as a DJ for a local country station, so there's some money flow there...I'm just looking to stay in the black, I know sometimes the first bit of startup will land you in the red, but thats a risk I'm willing to take.
I can build computers and also fix most bugs and such, and most major major major problems can be solved through forums and such, IF I would happen to hit a dead end, which everyone does once in a while
I love working with people so this job would be a plus for me, I'm not a money hound, so I can definately work with reasonable prices, unlike brand name/chains that fix computers (such as Geek Squad...blah!!! :-( they suck!...damn expensive)
That's all I've got so far but that's why I'm here on BC cuz I need suggestions and such...pro's/con's, ideas, suggestions, info...what ever you've got I'll take it...but please, from serious people only....preferably from those in the business
Thank you for any help received, it will be much appreciated...
