Ok... In the next few days, I'll be opening up the doors here on a new site. First site I've launched since my original creation in 2002 (yeah, it was ugly), but this is an entirely new market focus. Not really a new market, just a shift in focus from server administration to software support and services..

My first go around at this was successful enough to keep me busy for a few years until I stopped caring about it, stopped advertising, etc. When I broke out in 2002, I had it easy, this time I have a feeling, it'll be much harder, but I'm all about the 'hard'.

Tips? Tricks? Pointers? Where to best advertise? I'm definitely looking at taking up ad residence at HD, but other possibilities? Hit me up with your recommendations (just don't try to sell me your own service ). Web submission services, legitimate, no? Give me some advice and tips

Software support and services... Is it general software or directly hosting related?

Hosting related for sure.
Been trying to keep it rather quiet, though the name kind of gives it away. I've got a number of addons/services ready to go, the site is WP , using yoast, will add sitemaps when it's good, and tie in twitter with posts.

Would be interesting to see what is in store. Any beta site to review?

I would say definately not, this is pretty old school and going to have little to no benefit these days.

Doing what you're doing now on forums is a good way to start.

Yes good to start but you need more than this. Several of these

Was it the site in your sig now?

If not, let us know when the site is ready for review, otherwise, it's sort of like you are asking us to tell you how the orange tastes without giving us the orange. :-)

Good luck with it.

Yeah. I spent a few weeks putting it together, getting the addons ready, just wasn't really ready to make it public yet

Looks good so far. If you deliver on what you promise and develop solid add-on products that you keep updated for WHMCS you should be able to do well with it as there is a good WHMCS market out there that needs features and improvements that WHMCS has never gotten around to adding. I've always thought their reports could be much better, for example. Good luck with it.
