Information: The following short interview was done by a Local Success staff member. We’d like to send our words of appreciation to Mr. Adrian Esquivel for sharing his great insight with us.
Please share with us a little peek of what you guys do at TECKpert ?
That’s definitely a lot of fun for those of us who grow up with programming languages. So in a business sense, how does that bring benefits to the customers ?
At TECKpert, we take ideas and use creativity and technology to build great products. We understand how to fuse business and technology together to create and grow companies online. We help businesses, new and old, implement strategies to meet their business objectives through creating and growing their presence online with technology.
Did you come by any problems or difficult time to grow TECKpert as a new business ?
I’d call them challenges, not problems. As a new business, you’re always faced with the challenge on how to get your message, products, and services in front of the people who you can turn into customers. It’s an ever evolving one. Starting out we were able to quickly do this and grow.
How did you earn your first customer ?
I think like most businesses, we earned our first customer through a referral. Even though we’ve grown the channels that we use to earn new business, referrals are always a great source.
What is your future goal for the company ?
Our future goal is to not just focus on growth, but to continue to challenge ourselves in our work by continuing to innovate.
