They simply buy a master reseller plan and then list on eBay having no idea what they are doing
I've seen those sort of offerings and I don't trust them. One reason is that they are obviously over selling. And I mean way over selling. Which means your website will be slow and bandwidth on such a network will be horrible.

Just recently I was in the store looking for a magnifying glass. I found a good size one for only a dollar. But when I looked at it, it was very poorly made so I didn't buy it. I was in another store sometime after that and found one for five dollars. It had a light on it and was very well made. I bought the one for 5 dollars.

In my experience with cheap, that's exactly what it is - c h e a p. It is flawed in many ways. Things that cost more and worth their dollar amount hold more value and give you more satisfaction.

Local advertising and word of mouth is the best way. After you gain 100 or so clients, with good service, you can get them to refer you to friends .

Also, have a subscription list so you can post them fresh new offers to remind them of your web host ! It helps a lot ( But not too often or they would get mad )

From the start of marketing mouth to mouth marketing. Start from the local area, give some discounts. Once you will acquire the market then you will automatically get customers as you have already have the best position in the market.

To expand on this, a bit of advice we give to our partners: specialise!

If you can offer a something to a niche market, you can use very precise targeting and make use of the data that companies like F***book hold.

For example, you could target photographers (or even more specific, such as wildlife photographers in your local area), and make your ads very photography-focused and word your landing page as "web hosting for photographers".

That way, you can get higher click-through rates at lower prices - increasing your ROI.

This is very true. Reaching out to places like real estate offices might be beneficial because a lot of those places typically will use the same person for everything throughout the whole office. Other businesses that might be worth exploring are machine shops in the area since a lot of them are in the same business center.

For me, i think the best is having an affiliates prgram so people can start with and them promoting resseling to them. 24/7 presale support is definatly worth it too

A per our experience, 1st & for most your server/reseller hosting should be fast, secure & maximum uptime server, so that your clients do not face any difficulties in using your reseller hosting & if you can maintain this strategy for long term, this will definitely increase your hosting value & goodwill & will earn more customers & ofcourse you will get more customers as much as you will do all online/digital marketing.

One very nice way to get clients is the local meetups. If you are not lazy then find out when and where the startup or local business meetup will take place. Dress up well for the meetups with some of your business cards and present them precisely with what you offer and what you can do for them. It works.

To become a brand of reseller hosting. First you need to know about your customer's needs and requirements and then you can offer accordingly. Social media is the best and very cheap for marketing. Make sure you respond every comments on social media as quick as you can to not ignoring them.

If you really trust your services, at last, you will have clients. Client always left bad providers and find until they meet good providers and be loyal many years after that.
So must to be a good provider, and patience

The difficulty is really getting your first bunch customers. After that things start to pick up really.

If you are attracting the right customers (not $1/m nulled software customers) they can become a huge factor in terms of growth. Reviews and recommending friends really does go a long way.

With the revenue from those customers and their referrals, you may be able to look into other avenues (I'd recommend staying away from PPC at this stage) but things such as an affiliate program. This truly goes a long way. Overtime you can scale this, we're dealing with millions in affiliate commissions annually.

Overtime you'll have a very nice little business where you have the cash reserves to experiment in other areas -- PPC, SEO etc.

No doubt there's a great competition out there but, even more and more businesses are coming online with their websites. This means the number of websites are also increasing.
These websites will be needing a web hosting provider so that those will be available to all. Ultimately, this is going to increase your value in the market.
You just need to focus on offering good services to your clients. Keep an eye on your competitors and act differently.
