shops owned and operated by other people, attending repair schools and watching
YouTube videos online.
Ensure That You Have Good Customer Service Skills
You should have clear customer service skills, allowing you
to effectively communicate the problem that the customer's device is facing;

your care. You may also benefit from some negotiation skills to deal with
customers who question the prices you are charging

goal you will be one step closer to achieving your bigger goals.
Research Your Local Competition
Researching existing mobile phone repair companies in your

with local offerings already. By researching the competition in various areas

business. By researching your competition you can understand what services they

for potentially winning a prize or discount on your services.

people's technological devices, a small portion of which may be infected with
