You mean aside from spending $1000's in advertising? Or, being in the top 100,000 in Alexa, receiving tons of daily traffic?

If I was getting 100 new clients per week without those methods I'm not even sure I would tell anyone how.

Now that's a place I'd love to be. I imagine spending a ton on advertising would do it. Not sure how long it would take to recoup that expense.

I'm sure it would depend on your business and your prices. Hot girls in bikinis might help too

Well, that has been proven to work. Now to just round up some SuperBowl advertising money.

100 signups of WHAT is the question

I'd much rather than 100 signups (per month) of $40-$60 accounts than having $100 signups (per week) of a $5.00 plan. It's not just price, it's the type of clientele. $5.00 accounts seem to come and go just as quick.

Of course, if you offer something FREE you instantly boost signups - and a FREE account can boost signups, however keep in mind the quality of the lead.

For forums - 100 signups quickly is attained by offering a giveaway - this is proven time and time again.

Advertising is what will bring in the customers - support and the perception of value for their dollar is what will keep them. I say "perception", as that's from the USERs end - you still have to actually offer value and follow through on their expectations!

Getting 100 purchases means you need a MINIMUM of 1000 visitors (and that's if 10% purchased). Your conversion rate is usually MUCH LOWER than that, but it depends on your target audience and the product you're targeting.

I used to work for a marketing company and the average conversion cross industry was more like 3%. The more "in your face" the advertisement was, the better it performed.

A huge part of the equation is keeping the clients you do get.

Amen, S-H, customer service, works every time. Also, as I'm always likely to mention, humor works wonders. People are always much more tolerant of advertising if it's entertaining. Also, it can really boost the positive perception of your brand. Plus it makes work more fun!

I'm currently working on a video blog series for TurnKey and I'm having a great time writing the jokes. My hope is that it'll be something informative that people actually want to watch and keep up with. Gaining fans of the videos will hopefully gain customers for TurnKey. We'll see how it all pans out!

Can hardly wait to see your video blog series. I've done this twice before (not here) and it does work.

Awesome! I'll be sure to let everybody know when I post the first one! Yeah, I've done it before too for my own projects and it worked great. It's time-consuming and takes a lot of creative energy which is I guess why you don't hear it talked about in forums that often as a marketing strategy. Seems like something mostly bigger companies do, and they're so often dull as nails. In my opinion, it can't JUST be about selling something.

We have our own production studio here, but the problem is finding the time to devote to these types of projects. I think the last time we discussed this was about a year ago. Good luck with yours.

You would be sitting on a gold mine of knowledge if you had a simple answer to this question. Godo advice from others here in this thread. I would focus more on getting higher paying loyal customers rahter than quantity.

Adding to the number of hosting clients is not an easy task because some of the larger companies having more than 100,000 customers are heavily advertising their services but this does not mean there is no chance to succeed. Although using the free web advertising tools could be great but in some cases renting the monthly business spots on some related sites could drive a lot of traffic towards websites.

Word Of Mouth and affiliate program would be the best way I assume.
