Viability of Computer Support Business?Locked
I’ve read some “net propaganda” lately about guys doing low end tech support successfully. Sample article:
This guy is making it sound like his business took off like wildfire by simple osmosis – but he’s in NYC so maybe social and business conditions there permit this to happen.
In a more average part of the country (US) – say in flyover country in a medium sized city – what does anyone think that it would it take to get something like this rolling – time, money, and commitment-wise? Assuming that the person had sufficient skills and professionalism to run the business, that is.
IE: I see postings on the bulletin boards in local groceries for home user tech support. These guys state that they are charging like $25/hr. I couldn’t keep the lights on for that. But I don’t see that business users would take someone that cheap very seriously, either.
