In this guide, I will show you How to Start Computer Service Business Center in Nigeria.This is a business you can make big money from it especially if you know how to do it well.
Let’s face it; with the existing fluctuations in our economy, there is a great need for any human who wishes to survive to source for any good working means of making money and not just total dependence on white collar jobs.
Today, I want to introduce a long existing business which you may not have been aware of. You can make a whooping amount of money by running a computer service business; actually, this kind of business is common among Nigerian students and mostly the tertiary levels. This is because of the need for them to purchase textbooks & handouts, pay tuition fees and carter for other personal needs.
If you check the school environments like it’s happening here in UNIUYO, you will notice small canopies with laptops and printers in them, positioned at different places around the school premises.
All they do is check results for students; help them pay school fees online, type and print assignments’, register courses and other school needs involving the use of computers and that’s how they make money here in Nigeria.
You can actually go into this kind of business but not like those done in schools. Many will also consider making money online through blogging but this one requires a bit of passion for something. Making money here in Nigeria is very easy, you only need to find what would work for you and stick to it.
The computer service shop you are going to pull out will be different from those seen in schools premises, you need to give your business a brand, make adverts if possible and provide quality services which would make your customers to recommend their friends to your business center.
One other good thing about running a computer service business is that you really don’t need to offer the services yourself if you are currently working in somewhere else; you can setup the business and employ people to work for you while you concentrate on your other job and at the end of the month, you pay them their salaries and pocket the rest of the money.
Simple! Before starting a computer service business, there are certain things you need to put in place, some apparatus’ needs to be acquired. Let’s check out these apparatus’
REQUIREMENTS FOR A GOOD WORKING COMPUTER SERVICE BUSINESS
Just like any other business, running a computer service center requires certain paraphernalia. You can’t tell me that you would plant on your farm without a hoe, build a house without blocks or cement. So, in the same vein, you can’t print a document without a printer neither can you check a student’s result without internet connection nor power supply. These apparatus are listed below:
- A laptop or desktop computer
- Modem or a reliable wifi
- A good generator to backup power supply
- A well positioned shop or hall
- Accessories like flash drives, UPS, stabilizers, and softwares for carrying out required task.
WHERE TO GET YOUR REQUIRED TOOLS
You can place your order online through any of these well known online stores; konga or jumia. You can pay them on delivery. The benefits of purchasing your tools online is numerous, first among them is the price which is what can impede your business plans, if you spend too much money on procuring tools alone, then how about other things like your shop. So you will need to plan very well about this.
Konga and Jumia offer these tools at a much reduced price and you have the choice of paying them only when they have delivered it into your own hands. Another benefit is full warranty on any of the products you purchase, if your purchased equipment develope problems within your warranty period, you can contact them for replacement or possible repairs.
- Order your laptop from Jumia at a price starting from N65,000
- Order your standard generator from Jumia at a price starting from N25,000
- Get your high quality durable Printer from Konga or Jumia at a price starting from N22,000
Now, after acquiring all the required equipments, you then have to proceed and find a shop or hall at a very good location, the best location for this kind of business is on the road side or a really busy and developed area.
Starting your business in a local area will not be encouraging because people may not be able to locate you and the need to call for your service may not occur frequently. Your earnings alone may discourage you, so it is best if you procure one along developed areas with other businesses established around.
Another good trick is targeting a shop around a company or school. Though some companies do have these things within their reach, there might be some time when they run out of it and that’s when you shine with your business.
After getting a shop or what you may now call “business center”, establish your business, provide quality services, display good attitudes towards your customers and be friendly with them in the best possible way. Building a good relationship with customers is a sure way of getting more patronage.
You might also want to take your business to a higher level by making adverts on media like television, radio, social networks, magazines and newspapers.
These will boost your business fame and also your patronage. When your computer service business has gained grounds, you can then think of hiring more people to work for you and establishing a branch in another location.
This is how business grows; you might also think of being fully established in computers by selling them, their parts and even employing people to help you run a computer training institute.
All these starts with a single step, note also that every success is accompanied by failure and what really matters is not giving up on your plans. Stick to your business and the sky will never be your limit but your starting point.
Think about this plan, budget towards it and I guarantee that you will begin making money through computer services here in Nigeria.
