New Web-hosting Company - Spread The Word - Maximus - 02-02-2012 01:53 PM
Your company is ready and you have great web-hosting plans for your awesome services , but there is something missing ? Most likely you are missing the most vital part of your newly started business - the clients . It is time for you to take care of your company advertisement . The first possible step is to register at all hosting related boards and to make a sales thread in their marketplace sections . That is a good start , but it is far from enough . At this stage you are just ``another not interesting new company`` . To attract your potential clients you must be providing something , that makes you stand up in this saturated web-hosting market . A good next step in this direction is to develop some kind of promotion . It doesn`t matter , if it is going to be some percentage of the price of your web-hosting plans or extra/bonus resources with every new plan , there just have to be something different and attractive with your services . Next step , if you have enough capital , is to advertise with banners/text links on big hosting related websites . You must hire someone really experienced for the creation of your advertisement materials , because you are going to spent a lot of money for this add-spots .If your banner for example looks like it is made with software from the previous century by your kids , then you will be doing the opposite of attracting new clients . There is also some extra options , that you can use , like paying for a ``sticky`` topic in web-hosting forum or everything similar , that is going to make your company noticeable . It will require even extra investments , but at some point the invested capital will return as new clients placing orders at your company website .

With a new Web Hosting Company advertisement is one key aside from I agree that promotional offer should be taken into consideration since the business is still new in the market and it needs to attract clients who will take the offer and even promote the company. Of course, it is an investment however if the web hosting services are fast, safe and reliable then there won't be any problem in attracting clients and having a long term business relationship.

Yes Marie , if you provided services are good , then you will need even less advertisement activities. Off course this applies only after some kind of starting promotion , which will attract the first clients to your company . You will need clients,who are already testing and with good overall experience of your services to naturally spread the word about your awesome company , right ?

That's right Max, I always believe in personal experiences coupled with great words about services being tried and tested by the right kind of people.

When you just started your own Web Hosting Business, it is important to let your presence felt from the right people, and at the right time too. Advertising in forums such as this is a great way of bolstering your popularity, with great promos and words to say, you will have your first clients in no time
Goodluck to those who started their own Website

Max, if you want to advertise your business, you mentioned that you have to hire someone to make your design, logo etc for your business, I thought it will be the ad network's responsibility to make one for you? And if you submit it to the Ad Network for spreading, of course the owner of the business will pay the network right? And the network will pay the webmaster who accepted that specific banner and posted in on their wall? Or is it the business owner who will pay the webmaster?

Hey, Apaullo. Even with an ad-network, you are paying for their services. So it is the same as hiring someone to do the job for you, regardless if it is an ad-network, PR Company, design studio, or a freelancer. If you choose an ad-network for full advertisement campaign, they will take care for everything, from the creation of the ads to the actual ad exposure. The difference will be in the price. With already available ad-material, you will have to pay the ad-network only for the distribution and exposure of your ads.

Ahh ok..so there are still price difference when it comes to building your ad banner from scratch, but who will pay the webmaster who agreed with posting your ads in their site? the ad network or you?
