Decide and register a company name. Go to the nearest county office or secretaries office of state and browse to the assumed name or fictitious name search engine.

Establish yourself as an authority in the field of computer consulting. Attend seminars or trainings to acquire industry credibility.

Provide quality computer repair and consultation services. You can earn a lot of money by providing computer consulting services. The first thing that prospective clients would see in your website is the name of your company. Your company name must be distinct from other similar companies. The name of your company can also be related to a current feature of your products or solutions, so that prospective clients may become familiar with it.

Choose a specialized technical consultant. Qualified computer consultants are required to have extensive experience in a specific field, such as network security, information technology, and computer forensics. These computer consultants should also be accredited by major accrediting agencies. They should have a proven track record of delivering high quality computer consulting services. For instance, if your company is in the information technology consulting business, you will need to find an information technology consultant who has a sound knowledge about VMWare ESX Server, Microsoft Windows server, Citrix Metaframe, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Outlook.

Establish your own company website. To gain potential customers’ trust, you should showcase the expertise and professionalism of your computer consultants through your website. A website is your business card, and you should make every effort to showcase your computer consultants’ capabilities. Also, you should post sample works or complete projects on your website.
