Start a Computer Sales Business

What you will be doing. Computers are an ever growing market. People are always on the lookout for the best deals. They want reliable products and good customer service. If there is a problem, they want someone to be able to offer solutions.

As a computer sales business owner, you will be selling computers to the public. This can be done on the Internet, through catalogue sales, or direct sales. This business can be conducted from a home office or a store front.

How to start. If you want to be able to compete with the online auctioneers, take out a business loan. This loan gives you the option of purchasing the computers, notebooks, and accessories you want to sell. You can also auction your services as technical computer support for your products. A detailed business plan should be used when deciding how much loan money to apply for.

You will need a place to store the computers. A garage is suitable if it is clean, dry, and temperature controlled. Renting a storage facility to hold your merchandise is an option. Be sure to take out insurance on the computers in case of theft, fire, or other disaster.

Study the market. Learn all that you can about the brand of computer you are interested in selling. Know how to clean them, fix them, start them up, and shut them down. The more you know, the better your customer will feel. Accessories are no different. If you offer them, know what they do and what computer they can be used with.

Start up costs. Costs for computers can be pretty significant. A business loan should encompass advertising and product cost. Be smart. Purchase a few desktops and a few notebooks to begin. You don’t want to get stuck with items that don’t move. If you’ve done the research this should not be a problem. If you know that you will niche into one particular brand, then you can buy as many computers as you can afford.

Skills needed. Computer and mechanical skills are needed. If you offer technical support with the computers that you sell, you need to have an intimate knowledge of the brand and what can go wrong. Since you will be talking with your customers a lot, brushing up on customer service skills is a good idea. They may ask questions they should know the answer to, but you are there to help. Your attitude will make the difference between a satisfied customer and one who returns your product.

Marketing. Advertise your business in local newspapers, home business magazines, and computer magazines. Anywhere people will look for information about computers, you should try to place an ad. A website is a way to advertise your computers and list the services that you will provide with the sale of the computer.

Write articles for computer publications that post a link to your website. Use your expertise to bring in more money for the business and attract customers to your website. Your business can lead to sales of e-books or special reports about computer repair, computer care, and how to troubleshoot. If someone already has a computer, they can still find something to purchase on your website.

Computers are evolving on a daily basis. The key to a successful computer related business is knowledge—knowledge of the product and the market. If you want a foot in the door of this billion dollar industry, start doing your homework today.
