Most of your business will probably come from Google searches and the better your referrals the more business you will get. So set up a Google business account, it's free. To see what I'm talking about, Google, "lubbock & mac repair". You'll see MacHale Enterprises with two listing both with 5 star ratings.
 
I dropped my web site as these "free listing" bring in all the business I need.
 
I work out of my house now. So you can go out there and spend a boatload of cash or you can get started out of your back pocket and build your business. When you get big enough to expand you will have the cash to stock a month or two worth of inventory. For now, stock a weeks worth, set up a PayPal account and request credit. Pay if off ASAP, use PayPal dongle on your phone or iPad to take credit cards. The more activity you have the faster PayPal will up your line of credit. Any inventory buy you make over $100, get you 6 months to pay off without charges. So this gives you working capital. The prices you charge are not nearly as important as the speed you do it in. People don't want their machines gone for two weeks. But don't make it to fast (no 5 minute repairs even if you can do it in 5 minutes) take a day or have them bring it in the morning and have it by 5:00. That way they don't feel cheated. On prices, I show then the standard prices on iFixit on parts right in front of them. Give them that price plus shipping and add say 10-15% for handling it. Few people will complain about you making 10-15%. If they say the prices are high, tell them about the lifetime warranty on parts. Also you only have to do the repair once because it works. Never let a customer bring in their own parts. If they want to do that explain that if the part does not work, your charge for the labor is the same if it works or doesn't work. Avoid chemocheapo customers they are never worth the problems they bring with them. Be one of the higher priced, if not the highest priced guy in town. They will respect you more. Get that iFixit certification and display it prominently.
