4 PC Maintenance Contract Tips

When you are starting to build your own business based on the concept of the PC maintenance contract, you probably will get pretty overwhelmed with the amount of information you need to digest to get organized.

To get things started right with your computer consulting business and incorporate the PC maintenance contract into relationships with clients, think about the following tips.

Tip 1: Pick a Start-Up Date

Picking a launch date for your business seem really simple, but it’s something that many professionals fail to do and then stick to when they’re just starting up. You need to choose a real date for starting your business that is accurate TO THE DAY and write it down. No matter when it is, look at it regularly as you are managing your business and organize everything around it.

Tip 2: Narrow Down To-Do Lists

You need to have manageable to-do lists when you’re building a business based on having a PC maintenance contract with each client. Narrow down the list to just the top 10 priorities and start to do them in order. For example, you might have things like meeting with an accountant, getting a business resale license, opening a distributor account, etc. or things that seem simple like choosing a company name, coming up with a rough business card, etc. Manage your list before launch, and you will be more likely to complete them on time and successfully.

Tip 3: Organize and Order Your List

Once you get the top 10 things you need to do before launching your business based on the PC maintenance contract, rank them in chronological order and work on a manageable one or two per week. You can do this in Microsoft Excel or Word.

Tip 4: Get Together a Timeline

Think about it – if you’re launching your computer consulting business five weeks from now and you have 10 things total that are an absolute priority to get done, you’d want to do about two things each week. When you think of your tasks on a timeline, they will be much more manageable.
