Helping Clients One Referral at a Time

[this post is from Nerd Jim Humphrey]
Last summer an existing client (an accountant) referred one of his clients (an auto body shop) who had had a local IT guy wipe and reload his PC and lose ALL of his business data in the process. I couldn’t get the data back but I did manage to restore an old backup and get the program reinstalled and working and then set him up on Nerds Backup. I was in his office today when he walked in with a customer of his (one of the bigger farmers in the area). He told the farmer the story of the previous IT guy and then he said about me “He charges, but he gets the job done, and that’s all I care about” and insisted on giving his client one of my business cards. I am pretty sure there’s going to be at least a spyware cleanup there as a foot in the door.
P.S. If you ever want a fishing charter on Lake Erie, that’s his second business. He knows where the pickerel are.
