Do you own or manage a computer consulting company? Would you like to achieve greater small business success? If so, then get ready to learn why most computer consulting companies get IT (Information Technology) wrong and what you can do about IT.
The Problem: Why Most Computer Consulting Companies Get IT Wrong
Most owners of computer consulting companies make their jobs much harder than need be. Why? Because these computer consulting business owners fall in love with technology... and view their small business clients as a distant second priority.
However, if you get this part of "IT" wrong, you will doom your computer consulting company to "clueless geek" status. Itís crucial that you understand one extremely important principle here: Recruiting and retaining small business clients is your #1 computer consulting priority. Keeping up with IT should never get in way of mission of your computer consulting company.
In other words, donít get seduced by hardware, operating systems or applications. Fall-in-love with business opportunities surrounding how you solve your clientsí biggest business problems with your recommended IT solutions. Thatís real mission of a computer consulting company.
The Solution: Blend Computer Consulting and Virtual IT
To put this all in perspective with your computer consulting company, you need to understand and embrace concept of virtual IT.
Virtual IT is what allows your computer consulting company to function as an extension of your small business clientsí companies. Your computer consulting company essentially becomes outsourced IT department for your small business clients.
As owner or manager of a computer consulting company in this role, you will most likely become de facto CIO (chief information officer), CTO (chief technology officer), or IT manager for your small business clients.
