From time to time, hard drives become corrupted and people lose very valuable information on their computers. This is true for both individual users as well as corporations. Although there are now a number of services that allow an individual to backup all their sensitive information into cloud-based platforms, many individuals and businesses do want to keep certain hardcopies of their important work. As such, data recovery services have become an important part of the overall information technology field given that they are able to typically recover a significant amount of lost data on a broken hard drive. These businesses typically have very low startup costs and can be founded for as little as $50,000.

Many of these services often work hand-in-hand with on-site computer repair companies in any given regional market. It should be noted that there are now several companies that offer a mail-in service where an individual can send in a hard drive with the intention of having them recover as much information as possible off of the broken piece of hardware. One of the things that is most difficult in establishing these businesses is that individuals want to have a great degree of trust with the data recovery service given that there is often highly sensitive information on these hard drives. As such, a very broad-based marketing campaign coupled with a number of protocols and procedures that protect people’s information should be established in order to create level of trust with the end-user client. The gross margins  generated from these services are very high and typically around 90% depending on whether or not credit cards are accepted.

Given the ubiquitous nature of information technology and hard drives, the ability for a new data recovery service to receive capital from a financial institution or investor is significant. Of course, a data recovery service business plan should be developed. This business plan should feature a three-year profit and loss statement, cash analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page. As it relates to demographic analysis, this can be done somewhat on a broad-based basis given the fact that every single person pretty much owns a computer and all businesses use computers within their operations. As such, a significant focus of the demographic analysis should be on what types of companies we targeted when trying to extrapolate sensitive information from a broken hard drive or related storage device. A competitive analysis should also be developed in order to ensure that the business can develop a could differentiating factor when establishing their business operations.

A data recovery service SWOT analysis should be developed as well the in order to showcase the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats associated with this business. As it relates to strengths, these businesses are immune from negative changes in the economy given the fact that people are going to need to have a critical work recovered from a broken hard drive. The gross margins are high in the barriers to entry are relatively high given the fact that a highly competent computer professional needs to render the services to the general public.

For weaknesses, this is a highly competitive field and entrepreneurs that start this type of business need to have ways that they can differentiate their service from that of other providers. Most commonly, this is accomplished by maintaining an expansive online platform that allows people to have their hard drive service from anywhere in the country.

For opportunities, these businesses can expand when they are able to increase the size of their marketing budget and accommodate a greater number of service orders. This is really the only way these businesses are able to expand outside the increasing the number of services offered.

For threats, the biggest issue faced by these businesses is the handling of sensitive information. Many people keep highly important information such as financial information and proprietary technology information on storage devices. As such, it is imperative that the owner operator develop procedures and protocols that eliminates the risk of having any sensitive information misused.

A data recovery service marketing plan also needs to be developed. Depending on how this business is being structured, many local data recovery services will establish ongoing relationships with corporations, computer repair services, cell phone repair services, and related information technology firms in order to provide the service on a subcontracted basis. Additionally, the company’s website should feature e-commerce functionality that allows an individual to package and send their hard drive to the company’s central location for repair. This allows the business to operate on a national level from the very onset of operations.

A presence on social media is very important for this business as many people will first contact their friends in regards to how to fix a hard drive or what service provider can help them with this process. As such, the company’s social media pages can provide a great deal of visibility on an ongoing basis for this type of business. The strong reviews that are provided by social media users can drastically boost the reputation of the business in an online capacity. Over time, some entrepreneurs will also hire a search engine optimization firm as well as a pay per click marketing firm in order to have the company’s website boosted through online advertising.

Data recovery services are always going to be in demand regardless of how the economy is doing given the fact that people are now using technology in every aspect of their lives. A qualified computer specialist that has an entrepreneurial background can very easily start a new data recovery service as a profitable small business enterprise.
