How to Start Cell Phone Repair Business

If you want to start a cell phone repair business, you will need to develop a business plan. You can do this on your own or you can consult a professional.

The plan will already cover the various aspects of the business like marketing, management, and financials. Enroll in a course to learn the different skills in repairing cell phones.

Cell Phone Repair Business Plan

Cell phones are in-demand these days. Using this fact, starting a cell phone repair business can be a very rewarding venture. If you have the passion for these devices, you can undergo a training to learn the skills on how to repair various brands and models of cell phones. By seeking professional help, you will know what to do once you decide to start a repair business of your own. Every successful business starts with a plan. Create a business plan so that you will know the step by step procedure in establishing a business.

You can develop your own business plan or you can seek help from the professionals. This plan will already contain the summary of your business, the marketing and management plans, and the financial projections. The plan will help you in determining if such venture will be a success. To develop your skills, you will need to enroll in a course that is exclusively about cell phone repair. Once completed, you can now secure a license or business permit. If you want to earn more money, it would be best to find a location for your business in a high traffic area like shopping plaza, centers, or malls.

Equipment, Logo, Advertising, etc

Once you’ve picked an ideal location, you will now get some equipment and furniture. You will need to purchase office supplies, computer, tools, cleaners, lamps, and other essentials. The course you’ve just finished will help you in determining the needed tools to repair cell phones. In order to put your business plan to action, you will need to analyze each section so that you can use the appropriate strategies that will eventually increase your sales. Your business should have a logo for easy recognition and among the marketing materials that you can use are signage, business cards, and brochures. You can also promote your business in your neighborhood by giving out flyers.

Learn the accounting basics so that you can keep track of the business financials. If you want, you can also hire an accountant. Every month, you will need to estimate the costs and the revenues you’ve earned. All the cell phones you’ve repaired need to be included in the inventory. Since you will be incurring taxes, make sure that you pay for them on time. Learning should not stop in the course you’ve taken up but you still need to attend new trainings to learn more about the new trends in the industry. Try to think about cost effective measure to maximize profits.

What would be the best thing to do? I am 62 year old, I want to get the business off to a good start and hire some to work for me . Would a franchise be better are would a home base business work starting off?
