Now every week i am getting 20 new custumer average 2 jobs from each custumer and 4-5 regular custumer already calling.

I am also opening a shop but i will never entegrate my onsite repair business to my shop. Shop is good but on site is the future i think

my reasons for having shop;

1 Some custumers dont trust onsite techniciand to collect $2000 laptop ect.

2 easy and secondary drop off point

3 Makes me more pro looking and visible business Man

4 i need a workshop for repairs since i started bring in lot of business to my home

5 I have over $7000 worth of stock at home and my mother will kill me if i bring any moore

6 as well as repair i can also sell a lot of computer and laptops and parts

7 most of my custumers giving their old computer or laptop for free soon after i sell new one to them ( After i sold about 30 computer giving by custumer with in year, i have more then 30 medium spec tower and 5 laptops at home already and i can sell them in the shop

8 I own a shop so i dont need to pay rent


WHAT I AM PAYING FOR MARKETING BUDGET THIS YEAR?

ON GOING SEO $1000 submitions, link building, ect.

YELL.COM $2000

YELLOW PAGES $1500

THOMPSON LOCAL $700

TRUSTED LINK BUILDING COMPANY $1000



I am making what i was dreaming 22 months ago and i am very happy. i wish you all good luck and i hope you have money to spend for this business or it will take a lot harder to get where you want to be. Rule is simple = More you spend on advertising More money to make and faster the business groves.

So that would average to 45 jobs per week. Very nice for an on-site tech. On a 7 day week, that's 6.5 jobs per day, so let's say 6 or 7. What is the average number of hours spent on each job? How much travel time between each job? How do you schedule jobs physically close to one another to make efficient use of time? How much time do you spend answering and talking on the phone? Do you have other techs working for you or someone answering the phone? If not, when do you eat, sleep or use the bathroom?

You may have misunderstood. I read it as he is getting 2 jobs from a new customer instead of just 1. Not in the same day or week, but in general.

That would come out to 25 a week or so or 5 a day. Which I still think is kinda high to be doing on-site.

I would say it was spam if there was any real point to it other than a simple back link. Also the fact that he has been on the forum for quite some time and gotten in a few arguments, as you can see from his karma thinger. Not sure why the links aren't working, definitely posted with something other than the web form. Edit: that is from Windows Live Mail. I am guessing he composed it in that and copied and pasted it to the forum?

LOL I did a search on him and read a thread he replied in regarding A+ certification. Quite a funny read really. I always thought that spelling and grammar was important for a tech as well. That goes with the ability to communicate with customers. However, it's quite the task trying to understand what he's saying half of the time. Quite funny indeed.

English is not his primary language. Might explain it some.

Well, I guess that would explain it then. I guess in that case, it's not as funny as I thought.
