Computer Learning Zone CLZ Access Excel Word Windows

Every act of conscious learning requires the willingness to suffer an injury to one's self-esteem. That is why young children, before they are aware of their own self-importance, learn so easily.

Phone Calls

Hello. I'm happy to speak with you on the phone, but I do not provide free phone support or consultations.

First of all, I don't have the time to speak with everyone on the phone. There are only so many hours in the day, and I don't have enough of them to spend on the phone. If I did, I wouldn't have any time to make new videos. 

Second, I personally find talking on the phone to be an inefficient use of time. I can usually do a much better job of helping you via email. If your question needs more explaining, I can even record a video for you.

Thirdly, I don't have the staff to personally call everyone back. Computer Learning Zone is an Internet-only business, and I sometimes get hundreds, if not thousands of inquiries a week. I did offer free phone support when I first opened, and I was swamped with calls. I just don't have the staff to handle it, nor the budget to hire more staff (unless I raise my prices significantly, which I'd rather not do).

Fourth, I spent many years in phone sales and support. I hate, HATE, talking on the phone. I don't even like ordering takeout on the phone. If I can't do it online, I'll move on to the next restaurant.

Please see my Customer Service Policy page or email me if you have questions.

Paid Phone Support

I do offer phone support on a PAID basis. If you need this kind of help, please see my Consulting Rates page.

Phone Consultations

Sorry, but even if you are looking for a consultation just to discuss what courses you need to buy, or you are looking to hire me to build you a database, I don't give free consultations. Why? Because I don't have the time. I'm happy to chat with you as long as you'd like if you're on the clock. I've had my time wasted before by companies that emailed me, "hey, can you give me a call? I want to discuss having you build a database for our entire corporation." They pick my brain, find out that I'm not going to be the lowest bidder and I never hear from them again. Sorry. I don't do that anymore. I'm happy to answer whatever questions you may have by email, but phone time is PAID only.

My Phone Number

If you don't like to type, or you are physically challenged and have difficulty typing, I do have a voicemail number you can use. This number is for customer service and sales calls ONLYI do NOT provide technical support at this number.

Here is the phone number. Please make sure you've read and understand everything above BEFORE calling.

Remember... This is a VOICEMAIL number. You will NOT reach a live person.

If you call from your CELL PHONE, I will TEXT you back. You can also SEND me a TEXT MESSAGE at that number.

Leave me your EMAIL ADDRESS when you call as I will NOT return your phone call.

Please remember to speak slowly and clearly, and to spell out any names or email addresses.

Thanks for your understanding.
