Do You Really Want to Hire That Computer Guy from Craigslist?

Desperate times call for desperate measures, or so we’ve heard, but do you really want to hire a computer guy you’re not 100% certain is great?

Computer GuyThink about it: everything you do within your organization depends on technology. If your technology doesn’t work properly, you can’t get anything done – and that means losing valuable productivity time and missing business opportunities.

Slivertip IT knows when you need technology support, you need it fast. But wait one minute before hiring that computer guy from craigslist! Call (425) 998-9199 or send us an email: We’re here to transform the way you use technology, instead of simply fixing broken equipment.

When you need technology support, you need it fast; but here’s the thing: computer guys from craigslist have a secret: they want your technology to break, and they want it to break often, because that means they’re able to come in and charge you high amounts to fix the issue; often taking a ‘band aid’ approach instead of getting down to the root of the issue.

Do you really want to hire a computer guy as opposed to an entire team of experts who can act as your entire IT department? Here’s the difference you can expect from an outsourced IT company:

  • More knowledge and skill-sets: A computer guy from craigslist might be knowledgeable, sure, but they don’t have the knowledge and skill-sets of an entire team that’s certified and trained on an ongoing basis.
  • Dedication to staying proactive: A computer guy from craigslist WANTS you to call them with issues, whereas an outsourced IT company stays proactive to prevent issues from occurring in the first place.
  • Strategic planning to achieve goals: A computer guy from craigslist is simply not a partner, they’re someone you call when things break, whereas an outsourced IT company partners with you to achieve goals and objectives.
  • Unsurpassed level of client service: A computer guy from craigslist might strive to make sure you’re satisfied, sure, but not in the way an outsourced IT department with a reputation to build will.

Think hard before you hire that computer guy from craigslist, or better yet, contact Slivertip IT at (425) 998-9199 or send us an email at for more information.
