I have done some tech support before. I used to fix computers on the weekends for people for a measly fee. I guess I was shy about the price, but I’ve learn when you want to run a business, you really can’t be shy about charging people or anything in that matter. Income is the key to your success, so *chuckles* you better bill them or you’ll be out of business.
I’m thinking of bringing this computer hobby back and make some side money. Despite the Internet and computer growth a lot people are still unfamiliar with installing an operating system or even just plain installing MS Office. Therefore, I can become handy.
Also, I live in an apartment complex where people are very well off. I’m talking about 100K/year and up, so I’ll put them into the higher income-earning demographics. Just the kind of people I need to seek business with. Now the question is how do I get the message out?
I don’t want to be knocking on everyone’s door and soliciting them for my business. Instead, I’m thinking of printing business cards and passing them out as I meet the people. That may seem slow though, but since it’s only a hobby/experiment, I’m not going to rush it.
