Who We Are

We have been serving the Hickory, Conover & Newton, North Carolina area for nearly years. Chuck left the company in 2012 to pursue other opportunities.

Our clients often specialize in areas where we can't compete. Contact us for a free quote.

Search Engine Optimization

Search Engine Ranking Position (or SERPs) are influenced by a variety of factors: the age of the domain name, how many sites link to yours, the quality of HTML code on your site and most importantly the content on the web page. Search Engine Optimization is the art of leveraging your online strengths and eliminating your weaknesses so that search engines and customers can better hear your message.

Web Analytics

So you have a website - great! Do you know if and when people are coming to your site? A simple javascript counter won't tell you what your most and least favorite pages on your website are. Without access to website analytics you are operating blindly without the opportunity to create a better experience for your website visitors.

Our FAQ Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get a quote?

Please email your computer's make and model and a description of what your computer is or isn't doing. If it's a Mac please send your Apple's Serial Number. Apple hardware is very specific. A serial allows us to see what's under the hood.

On 2021 and newer Apple devices they changed the serial so you can no longer look the device up by it. In these cases send us your model number.

We operate under the no fix, no charge philosophy so only charge for solutions & not for trying hard.

How do I make an appointment?

Please email us. Most of the time we can schedule an appointment within 24 hours.

How do I schedule a service call?

There's little chance the owner can get out there but he can dispatch an employee. Please email us and let us know when you'd like to schedule and description of your issue so the right person is sent.

Weekends can be dicey as far as dispatching someone.
