5 Tips to Choosing the Partner that is Right for You

by Jacob Nolley, Marketing Manager/Accent Consulting Services, LLC

Take a second to think about your ideal partner…

I am sure that your outsourced IT partner was the first person to come to mind. Never the less, picking the right one is essential to the long term health and happiness of your company. Though, just like dating, it can be hard to know who to choose. Here are 5 simple tips that can help you make the right choice:

1) Make sure you understand what you are looking for before you go searching.

It can be hard to know what to look for in a partner if you aren’t sure what you need as an individual. Also, how would you know that you have found the right partner once you have hired someone?

We know that it IT is hard and knowing everything you need to know to make an informed decision can feel impossible. That is where Accent Consulting can help.

2) A good partner should lift you up, not tear you down.

This was always my mom’s favorite piece of advice when it came to relationships, and you know what? She was right…and not only when it came to dating.

When it comes to choosing your outsourced IT partners, it is critical that you choose one that will lift you up. After all, you are paying them with your business’s hard earned revenue and valuable time so that they can give you value in return. If you can’t rely on your IT partner to be there for you when you need them to be, it is time to rethink the relationship. While you are waiting for you FREE Network Health Check, check out Accent Consulting’s Computer Guy checklist. If your current professional doesn’t meet all of the criteria on the list, you are probably paying to much for subpar service.

3) It’s 21st Century…Give online dating a chance.

When you are putting your heart (and wallet) on the line for a new relationship, it can be hard to trust anything but a face to face conversation. And if this were ten years ago, I would agree…but we are in the future now!
