Computer Troubleshooter Franchises recently met for breakfast. The group meets periodically to socialize and discuss the latest issues concerning their businesses and the industry as a whole. Per Dave Rubin, Computer Troubleshooters – Bensalem, "These meetings are invaluable. They are great for bouncing ideas off the group and learning what is working and not working for everybody else."
Computer Troubleshooters Annual Convention was recently held in Phoenix, AZ. Over 75 were in attendance to discuss objectives for the next 12 months along with the longer term vision for Computer Troubleshooters. Some of this year's highlights were:
- Intel was this year’s Platinum Sponsor. Computer Troubleshooters will be working with Intel on how the franchises can leverage their offering along with what marketing techniques to utilize for the franchises.
- Things to be rolled out shortly are:
A new Private Site
A new National Accounts program
A mobile apps product line and the new web design, hosting, SEO consulting and social media management services.
Each attendee received over $150 worth of CT-branded collateral materials including notepads, pens, mouse pads, stickers and USB drives. We plan to continue to distribute similar “packs” of goodies at each CT meeting going forward.
If you missed the chance to attend, we look forward to seeing you at next year's event.
