So, "Kyle, the PCGuy".

Whatever you come up with see how many hits you get with a Google search. "PCGuy" probably gets a ton of hits and most probably aren't you.

Put the town name in your company name and you'll increase google search hits a bit for people smart enough to specify where they are. "PCGuy of Everytown". (Not literally "Everytown" :roll: )

There is already a PC Guy LLC, Call the PC Guy LLC and a couple others... So maybe not. Google anything you come up with before you even consider it.

Due to his abilitys to administer a website, this may provide a better paying position. Be sure to list webmaster in your list of qualifications.

Regardless of the company name, keeping the PCGUY as a personal touch can work well. Look at that temporary accounting firm for an example.. Ask for "Bob"

"Small town computer repair and webservices" type name with the tag "Ask for PCGUY" would work well.

Don't forget to join the BBB. There are enough problem people out there that complaints are common. Membership in in good standing with the BBB means something to many people that matter.

I'm actually in this business as well. In my area "Geek Squad" is a bad punch line among quality talent and even most of the public. I'm really surprised Best Buy continues with this adolescent branding. My recommendation is to lean more toward the professional/competent sounding names than cutesy hipster fanboy names. You'll typically sooner attract attention of businesses that can afford to really pay you what you're worth....and that is ultimately the name of the game.

Feel free to go offline with me on this if you like....since you won't be competing with me in my area.... :wink:

First thing that popped into my mind was "The PC Guy."


Me too.


It's like the Cable Guy...

You instantly know what he does..

Well..okay...the Cable Guy was pretty weird..but I mean..

The PC Guy is catchy.

Thanks for all the help guys. I decided on just using "The PCGUY" if/when I do my own service calls. Turns out I'm not going to have to advertise myself to keep myself afloat now, finally landed another job!

I am going to be working full time for Saint Louis University as a Service Desk Analyst :D :D :D

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.
