It dawned on me the other day that if my laptop died a death I would be pretty much screwed.
My laptop has gone from being something I use to watch Netflix and online shop to a hub of work opportunity. But that doesn’t come without its downsides.
The first thing I did when I went freelance was to buy a new laptop – one that was faster and had more storage capabilities than my Chromebook.
And in today’s blog post, I’m going to discuss the ways you can alleviate any tech-stress from your freelance business.
Buy The Right Brands
Like a car or a washing machine, it’s impossible for a manufacturer to make sure that each and every example which leaves the factory will work properly for years to come. While most people will have a great experience with the laptops and desktops they buy, going with the right brand can be a great way to protect yourself. Companies like Dell and HP have a long-standing reputation for their quality customer service, and it is always worth reading reviews before you make a decision like this.
Buy The Right Products
Alongside buying the right brands, it’s also important to make sure that you buy the right products themselves. When it comes to a computer, most people will either over or under spend, with few buying machines which make sense for their use-cases. The cheapest machines on the market won’t be great for anything, and those who go for computers like this will often feel the pain as their software slowly stops functioning properly.
Find The Right Support
Most people won’t like to idea of working on a car or construction project if they don’t have the knowledge to get the job done, and this should also apply to the world of tech. It is always good to be confident with the machines you use, but real issues should always be left for a company like totalcalibration.com.au who will be able to manage your computing services on your behalf, taking away the pressure which can come with this side of life.
The Right Learning
Experiencing a computer issue is often stressful, but this is only because it comes with a big mystery attached to it. If you understand how these machines work, though, it can become a lot less daunting, even if you don’t know how to fix the issue. Websites like Lynda make it incredibly easy to learn about technology. With guides which are made by experts across the world, their resources are some of the best available, and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune to gain access to them.
Anyway, I hope this has helped!
Let me know if you have any questions and as always, thanks for reading.
