"Google"- Results 1 - 10 of about 48,300,000 for how to get hosting clients. (0.24 seconds)

The very first thing I will say here is Don't Use PPC As a New Host. That will doom you financially from the start.

I would like you to check out the following topic that I created a matter of minutes ago: How About Trying Something Different and also this one: Ways to promote your hosting business?

Both topics above should get you a head start in where you want to go.

As for your 3 customers per month. This is good; you should not be offended when you only start out with 3 customers a month. As for your forum advertising. You will not get customers right off the bat, it will take time and it will take work. Keep at it, because right now you wake up and realize that your doing "okay" but when you wake up in 2 years and realize that you have hundreds of clients behind your back then you will feel really good.

Also: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showpo...27&postcount=1 Your going at it.

PR 4 is really good for the website. This will push you up in Google rankings so that you will get more customers.
Try to promote your business in social networking sites make friends there and let them know about your services and uniqueness of your service.

Affiliate systems are definitely a good way to promote your customers spreading the word of your service to their friends

just to make it clear that PR doesn't mean you will rank high in search engine. PR has nothing to do with page ranking. Some people are commenting in this topic that with PR4 you will go high in ranking and they are wrong.

Just to clarify a bit - PR is page rank. What I think you're referring to is the connection between Page Rank and SERPS (search engine results pages). I hear the same from many SEO experts - that high PR doesn't relate to high SERPS. My thoughts are, if nothing else it sure doesn't hurt your SERPS.

What's the end result you're looking for? Mine is to maximize hits and conversions on my sites. Whatever leads prospects to my sites has to be relevant to the services I offer. From there, it's a matter of marketing content and calls to action, maximizing my conversion ratio.

I'd recommend that you sit down and make a business plan to really analyze how you plan to get customers, how much money you plan to make, etc. before actually launching the business

I am new to web hosting, and I had no idea so many would recommend looking for clients off the web. My plan so far was to advertise locally using magnetic ads that I can put on my car. I haven't really considered much beyond that. I plan on contributing to hosting forums, and using some google ads online. I'm really not happy with the current web design; so, I think I'm going to tweak that before I really start pushing. Thanks for all the great suggestions in this thread.

How much student ends up to be loyal clients, smart guy?

That was / is by far the best bang for the buck I've found.

If you have friends in college or taking classes, this is REALLY easy to get a plug in the class.

You have pretty good start having PR 4. Just try to free advertising, word of mouth, advertise locally to target the local audience.

Any host that finds satisfactory methods of increasing their customer base while maintaining the best ROI are not going to divulge their secrets.

I will suggest one thing tough. It does take money to make money. So if you are not doing any type of advertising and expect customers to somehow mysteriously find you and buy your services, you're going to be very disappointed and not be in business very long.

Congrats on the PR4 though. That's a step in the right direction.
