    Hi all,

    What a wonderful site and community of people!

    I have finally turned my passion for computers into a small sideline business. What an adventure! It’s addictive that’s for sure!

    I look forward to being part of the forums here and getting my hands dirty in the wealth of information and advice on Flying Solo.

    Thanks for the welcome Jayne,

    I specialise in PC Repair & Maintenance and custom built computers. I have always been one to build my own PC’s and have done for the past 15 years or so.

    I am looking to target the home user market and provide a friendly, reliable service that provides solutions to customers in my local area. I like to explain the ins and outs of why a customer has a certain problem and demystify the ‘black box’ that is the PC.

    Not all customers fully appreciate how important it is to have the right components and specifications to meet their computing needs, and that’s where I come in.

    See you all round the forums…

    Hey Simon,

    Couldn’t agree more, and it seems we started our own business with very similar goals. I shudder when some friend or family member just went and spent $400 on a “new PC” because it looks shiny! At the moment, I’m trying to steer my own brother in the right direction.

    See you around,
    Chris

    Hi Simon, and welcome to the forums – you should get some great conversations here.

    I like your web site – you have some great lead capture mechanisms – and the service area map is great (and always a great idea to have your photo on the site).

    Just noticed you had a data backup section – if you are interested in commissions for online backup to add into your offerings, please let me know and I will send you some details.

    Thanks for the welcome Chris,

    I know what you mean. Directing, steering and plain English explanations are the key to helping build a good relationship with the customer.

    Cheers.

    Thanks Kev,

    Glad you like the website…recently re-done based on the fantastic article I received as part of signing up to Flying Solo (The Website Marketing Handbook 2009 – David Lawrence).

    I plan to start writing articles and have an articles area on the website which will keep the content of the site changing and hopefully draw in more traffic. The site doesn’t change too much otherwise.

    I’ll keep you in mind regarding the online backup solution. Thankyou very much for the offer.
