Hole In One

A Winning Hand

By G. David Doran

Help customers merge onto to the Information Highway by becoming a technical consultant for Hand Technologies Inc., a discount computer company that sells hardware and software and offers hands-on training sessions through in-home "technology parties."

Technical Consultants (TCs) who receive certification of their computer know-how from Hand Technologies demonstrate the computers (which range in price from a $1,000 Net PC to a $3,000 IBM Aptiva multimedia system) from home and take sales orders from customers, which are then posted to Hand Technologies' Web site. TCs can also certify as trainers or technical specialists in order to offer customers technical support or upgrades.

TCs operate from home on a full- or part-time basis--without quotas or overhead--and can earn anywhere from $150 to $250 for each computer system they sell. Getting started requires a $95 registration fee. Hands-on training videos and certification are extra.
