In this business, you need to study the main software that system users use which includes word processing, spreadsheet , mail merge, photo manipulation software, design and specifically security software. Study all the components—the different kind of monitors in their varieties; keyboards, from wired to ergonomic to wireless; mouse types; as well as marginal components like scanners and printers. Become totally accustomed with all the ISPs (internet service providers) obtainable in the market area you plan to cover. Establish yourself as the expert who can meet the needs of the PC users, the small business or a larger corporation.
To be a consultant, you need to have a knowledge in something so you can advertise yourself as an advisor to other people looking to work in that area. Perhaps you managed quite a lot of large warehouses in your career with a pharmacy company, you did all the marketing for many years for a big shoe producer or you set up series of beauty supply shops or take-out restaurants. You can use this knowledge to help people do similar things without making the same blunders that you made along the way.
Do you have items loitering around your household that you could trade on eBay? Figure out your asking price and choose whether to auction it or put it in your eBay store. Then decide if you want a minimum bid and period of time you want the auction to last for. You will want to create a PayPal account to use for transactions. The eBay website gives all the information you need to know to get up and running with an eBay business. Chatbots are providing creative new ways to aid businesses with these functions.
This business is related to the computer repair business, but you will consider all sorts of electronic equipment besides just computers. With smaller electronics, you will need to be set to have clients bring their repair projects to you, as you would have difficulty in getting back the money used on driving around picking up damaged equipment and returning it. You may also want to ask people to give you their old electronic equipment so you can use them as spare parts.
One of the major things you need to do is visit every prospective event location with which you have in mind to work in. Work with the marketing manager to sight-see each site and learn what is made available at each location. Get a file that will allow you to sort venues by varying features–the number of persons each site holds, if there is AV equipment present on site, will there be need for you to make arrangements for rental chairs, etc. Then when you start to plan an event with a customer, you can find out what the key factors are for the event and simply pull up the three or four sites that meet the rudimentary criteria.
