Making money as a local computer technician

Making money as a local computer technician

Have you ever considered making money by using your computer skills?


Do you get angry when older people you know take forever doing things on the computer?  Well, you could be making money right here!

So, what we do is, we decide what it is people need doing:

  • Speeding up computers
  • Removing virus’s
  • Cleaning Pc’s (yes there are proper tools for this)
  • Securing Wifi
  • Console repair (requires practice)
  • Hardware repair (requires research/practice)
  • De-bugging/fixing blue-screen
  • Making websites for friends/family/local business’s

Say perhaps we charge £5 – £10 for each of these services, we may just be doing one, but you can do this at any age, and if your not able to get a job £5-£10 per go is not bad, if you could do 3 per month, that is some money you would not have had already!

So, start with friends and family, and offer to speed up their computer, or secure their Wifi, and because you are a business person you want to make a bit of money from it, everyone else makes money from their jobs so why shouldn’t you!   So, after you have gone through all of your family and friends, the next step is to ask your existing customers to recommend you onto their friends and family, you could get some free business cards, to give to people.

You could find local small business’s who don’t have websites, or who’s computers are slow, take them a business card, or phone them up and ask them if they need anything doing.

There are plenty of people who do not have knowledge to do these jobs themselves, and a large company would charge much more then you, so you can steal their custom and make the money for yourself!
