Make It Work – Technician Ron Patterson

There has been a LOT of talk and chatter circulating about a well known IT Computer Tech Support company closing their business known as “Make It Work”. The company serviced thousands of customers from Santa Barbara through Los Angeles down to San Diego. This unfortunate situation has left ex Make It Work customers in limbo. Many of their customers are irate concerning their pending contracts and losing money to the business after abruptly closing shop. MoreĀ importantly, since Make It Work did NOT allow their customers direct access to their service technicians, it has been a challenge to get in contact with the technicians they once trusted with their computers, data, and overall networks.

Image representing Make It Work as depicted in...

Technician Ron Patterson was one of Make It Work’s TOP and highly sought after technicians in the Los Angeles area.Ā Due to the recent close of Make It Work’s business and services, Ron Patterson is gaining widespread exposure to his own business known as Tech Help LA.

Many ex Make It Work customers have diligently and hastily Googled and have found Ron Patterson’s whereabouts to get help with their computers for technical support. Ā Ron statesĀ “By the graces of GodĀ I was smart enough to have the courage to branch off and start my own business that made more sense using better tech tools and embracing remote technical support”. Ron left Make It Work on good terms almost exactly 1 year to the day before their business completely failed. 34 Jobs were lost and payroll was still pending and unpaid. Company cars wereĀ repossessedĀ and customers ranted in disbelief.

Message from our CEO – Ron Patterson:

Ron Patterson Senior Technician - Tech Help LA

“I AM AVAILABLE TO HELP”

My Company has been in business now for over a year and the demand for technical support is growing constantly. Our pricing is as low as it gets for a trustworthy tech support company (See pricing). If you have been looking for me… Here I am at your service. Feel free to call and ask for me directly from our Contact Us page where you will find our business contact number and email. I pray for the individuals directly affected by the close of Make It Work. I encourage all of the technicians at Make It Work who lost their jobs to also reach out and I will see what I can do to help. At the very least keep Tech Help LA in mind as a reliable source forĀ technicalĀ support, web design & development, social media services, and general technology consulting.

God bless you, your families, and businesses

R. Patterson
