Going with Geeks On Call for your computer business may seem like a sure thing. They have successful franchises all over the place, so yours has to be successful, right?
This October is a very busy time of the year for IT conferences of interest to SMB VARs, MSPs, IT consulting firms, network integrators, system builders, and computer repair businesses.

Fast-Teks has been providing quality IT services since 2003. Their franchises have helped numerous businesses and individuals all over the USA and Canada, and have made a respectable name for the company. Their on-site services are some of most convenient, affordable, and swiftest in the industry.

You've probably heard of different personality "types." Though they can be overused to pigeonhole people, personality types can provide insight into yourself or others. If you're thinking of purchasing a computer franchise, an examination of your personality type can suggest how successful you might be and how enjoyable you might find it.
Even for large companies, turning a profit on computer hardware sales can be tough. Dell and HP PC divisions regularly operate with single-digit profit margins. And in May 2012, both industry giants announced massive job layoffs directly attributable to slumping sales.
When you take on a new small business as a customer of your IT franchise, you're rarely supplementing an existing IT department.
