    I'm interested in turning my computer repair service into a remote desktop support website. I've already got a website hosted by 000webhost with a link and instructions for teamviewer, got my dot.tk domain, and a PayPal account ready to catch on fire.

    Any advice? I got the idea to do this from watching my friends dad fall for a "YOU HAS A VAIRUS SO WESTERN UNION US LAWTS OF MONEY" scam. I'm going to be providing legitimate services, but I may or may not be interested in gaining lots and lots of clients very rapidly.

    Id suggest figuring out exactly who your target market will be, it seems like it would be people who fall for virus scams. But then you got to figure out how you're going to be able to connect with that target demographic of people online. I would suggest asking your friends dad what he would search on say google if he didn't have you to come to in order to fix the issue. Try to get ranked for keywords which are similar something he/people would search with the same problem and rank. People on here would be able to help with the ranking of keywords.

    Just a suggestion here but you may want to get legitimate hosting and a mainstream TLD for your business.

    Your uptime and loading speeds will probably be better and people won't run for the hills when they see your domain extension.

    What is your plan to acquire clients and what is your expected cost to acquire a client?
    What legitimate services are you going to supply?
    Are you a one man shop or do you have others to back you should you get a lot of business?
    Aside from PP, do you have an alternative payment process?

    Just a few things I would be asking as well.

    I would like to add.....

    If you are looking for less tech savvy customers to use social media outlets that have older people (35-65) using them, such as Facebook. Twitter will give you access to general audiences (young and old), but I would use old fashion Ad space such as Craigslist, community newspapers, etc. One last thing...If you can afford it put your own custom virus software on a disk for distribution (think AOL disks) because you have to consider how your target audience will find you and how you will distribute your software to them. I would also consider getting a coder to make a widget to place on a customerĀ“s computer to make it easy to access your services. Of course, you should have in place some kind of customer service system by phone call and/or email.

    I hope all this gives you ideas. Good Luck!
