Irony (and some information about my business)

I have to smile when I read Carl Natale’s post here, because he brings up an excellent point that deserves its own post.  The irony is, I write about small business issues (in this case, being available and easy to contact) but I don’t post any contact information for my business.

By way of explanation, I will say that my small business is a side business, and I market primarily by word of mouth.  I work full-time as a corporate technician and I also carry a full credit load as an adult college student.  I couldn’t afford the time to increase business much.  But purely by principle (and planning for the future) I really should let you know about my business.

I, Benjamin Power, am an information technology specialist based out of Dillon, Montana.  I specialize in troubleshooting all things Windows XP and Office 2003, and generalize in “getting the computer to do what you want it to do.”  I hold several IT certifications, including Microsoft Certified Professional in Installing, Configuring and Administrating Windows XP, along with CompTIA A+, Project+, and Network+ certifications.

I service all of Beaverhead County and would be willing to expand into Silver Bow County.  My services include:

  • general technical support for program installation, program removal, and new computer setup
  • design and setup of home and small office networks (wired and wireless)
  • spyware/malware removal and anti-virus/firewall support
  • custom computer building and repairs

My focus as a consultant is on quality – quality of customer service as well as quality of technical service.  I strongly believe that both are absolutely necessary in order to properly serve you.

My current rate for onsite support is $35 for the first hour, with a total minimum charge of $35 per incident.  After the first hour, the charge is prorated in 15-minute increments.

For service, please contact me at 406-988-0156 or
