You've heard everyone going on and on about a flailing economy that is expected to soon rise. You've waited long and hard for this rise to occur, but it hasn't come. With the presidential elections around the corner, you can expect great changes to sweep the country in the coming months. Some of you are going to sit and wait for it, while some of you are going to be bitten by the entrepreneur bug and do something about it.

This is a great time to start selling yourself on your own, especially if you're skilled in specialized jobs like that of a computer technician's. In fact, with the advent of social networking and online marketing, offering your skills as a computer technician may not require much start-up, marketing or buying costs at all!

Almost all small business and home owners rely on their computers to serve them well. It's harder for smaller establishments to afford large contracts with multi-service technician companies, so an independent provider like you would be just the answer they need. So what are some of the things you should know before starting your own computer technician training business?

1. Get certified. Most people won't trust a quack technician to come into their homes and touch their computers unless they've heard glowing recommendations about your service, or can see that you've been trained formally. For those with no training, computer technician training from an online vocational school can really help your sellability!

2. Keep up-to-date on the latest developments, especially in computer technology. Nothing is changing as rapidly in our times as the electronic realm of work. Doing an online computer technician certification in new and emerging technologies and methods every once in a while is a good idea.

3. Put yourself out there, but know your limitations. Don't bite more than you can chew. Your clients will appreciate that you stick by your word. Take time to experiment on new technologies and operating systems. Don't experiment on a live customer's computer if you can't help it.

4. Take time to understand your market, and be patient for results. You'll need to understand how your competitors work, and pitch your services at an advantage for your potential customers. Offer discounts, trials and satisfaction guarantees if you're confident about your service, but just be patient until you see loyalty and customer referrals doing the work for you.

5. Expect to put in long odd hours. This will especially be applicable if you are servicing home PC where owners may have time for you to visit their home only after their work hours.

6. Be professional. Dress well, and invest in your own business cards and company letterheads. It will add a sense of accountability to your profile.
Go ahead; take a chance on your own business if you're feeling lucky, adventurous or just plain tired of waiting for someone else to do the work for you. Being an entrepreneur has its own heady highs, and once you get a feel for it, we bet you won't look back!
