    Hi guys i've been a member now for some time here on BHW

    So im in the web hosting industry and profits ok but not what i want. My profit at the moment is about $100 a month this is now a year in business. My spending is about $300 and making $100 profit.

    How to scale it up abit?
    I only sell vps hosting from my server, must i try cpanel hosting, reseller web hosting ?

    My support is good my clients i have is very happy and are long term clients, how to win more clients and get to page #1 on google i know it not possible in my niche but just need some advice!

    My goal is only $1000 in profit/pm any ideas for promotions etc will be welcome

    Thanks

    try promoting ur services as much as u can on social networking sites, interact with people, offer them Discounts or Coupon Codes or start creating Referral Contests, give 1-3 months free trials if ur service is really good, people will definitely stick to it after trials...ur niche is all about Marketing, the more u market it and let people know about it, the more $$$ u will make...

    Btw...what are ur VPS packages?

    well, why do you join with some web site designers, or post your JV here on BHW. You offer them to host their websites, thy get 30% you keep rest, or something like that.

    Hi webmastebd first of all you need to know how dedicated server work how to install scripts etc. Security for your server is a must for a server you reselling to clients. You can pick up a dedicated server from any range from 89 to 399 + cpanel license $15 + Whmcs License $16 + solusvm license $10 extra ip's Between $1 to $3.50 server security $50 it all ads up then finding that clients

    put some effort on SEO you, try some very small keywords like "best vps hosting" or "cheap vps hosting" you sure will end up with cool leads

    Cheers

    Build a hosting comparison site and ride the coattails of other brands where people are looking for reviews and coupons. Don't focus on the big names which will be hard to rank for, try focusing on the smaller hosting company names.

    Just an idea.
