FREE WORDPRESS HOSTING UPDATE — INCOME REPORT!
San Cristobal De Las Casas, Mexico.
We did it! At exactly 730pm CST on September 27, 2016, I flipped open the affiliate dashboard and saw that we nailed a major milestone we have hunted for 102 days.
The elusive, mystical and magic milestone of 21 sales per month finally got nailed while Im in Southern Mexico.
Yup. I did some Mezcal shots with some friends at the hostel.
This is how they cook and smoke the Agave plant to make it seductive, smoky and sexy…
They toss the agave “pinas” in a smoke pit to give it the smoky flavor and bouquet (smell).
Hard work to bring it to market…but definitely worth the experience.
I’m hooked on having it be my celebration libation.
On the rocks with chile salt above a lime.
Flavored nuts on the side…wow.
Ok ok…back to the numbers and the actual moment when we cracked the magical 21 sales/month target.
This triggers the extra $25 per sale bonus. Our payout would be about $2750 at the current level of 22 sales.
We are a little behind our pace for the year that we set back in August 1, 2016, but we feel that even though we have taken some steps backwards, our progress is sustainable and a result of solid practices. 🙂
We wanted to share this because if you have been following our progress, you will know that this has been a major short-term goal for the business.
We were really close in July and took some steps backwards in August, but here we are in September with a nice validation of our growth as a company.
Again, we are not interested in the income as much as the validation that our practices are starting to show positive results.
We are committed to the long game and are measuring and refining our process to ensure that we have consistent and sustainable growth.
One of the best parts of our 90 day experiment, (Or shall I say 102 day experiment) has been the ability to take our track record and shop it around to ensure our customers have the best possible hosting packages at low prices.
Hostt also benefits because we can also ask for a higher commission with our increasing sales volume.
Moreover, at this point we feel that we are ready to commit to a long-term hosting partner who sees the value in joining forces to provide our users with a first class plan at affordable (sub $3/month) price point.
Hostgator has been our partner for these last 90 days and although we feel that they are a great company, we also want to make sure they are the best fit for our users and for Hostt, as a company.
We recently sent them this email to see who sees the most benefit to partnering with our company.
Now this email is meant to do several things:
- Wake up Hostgator with a “knock on the door” and let them know that we are serious about growing our business.
- Provide our customers with the absolute best hosting package at the lowest price. (We intend on using our upgraded commissions to bring down the price of their monthly hosting packages. We will contribute $15 of our commission to providing our users with free domains for 2 years. Our wholesale pricing for .com domains is around $7/year.
- Earn more as a company for committing to a long term partnership with a reputable and stable hosting company.
We are constantly striving to improve everyone’s game. Our hosting partner, our user’s and of course, our own.
It’s part of the culture we create with each one of our interactions.
See. Do. Improve. Teach.
Along with Hostgator, several other companies have received emails asking them for their “highest and best offer” for our affiliate partnership.
A strong candidate for our business is GreenGeeks.com.
We like them because they are independently-owned, ecologically aware, and the “higher ups” are available via email.
I like GG’s exec team of TJ and Trey alot, even though I have never met them because they shoot straight, are always looking to get better business done and have been in the industry for a long time.
Totally respect that.
Here’s the email chain we just had with them over possibly working together.
With this deal, we would be creating a very valuable hosting package offer for our users.
$2.99 per month would include:
- FREE DOMAIN
- FREE MIGRATION (Service that switches your site from one host to another- a pain in the ass if you aren’t techy)
- 24/7/365 support via chat, phone or email
- Ecologically friendly hosting (They return 300% of the energy they use back into the power grid with wind farms!)
- Free 1 click WordPress Installs (Ok, everyone offers that)
- Unlimited Emails and Domains can be hosted on the package.
- 30 DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
It’s a better package than what we offer now…and that’s the real intent of our emails to the large hosting companies.
We want to stir things up and use our volume to provide better value for everyone.
Look, the eventuality to this business is that sooner or later, the eroding price points of $3.00/month will soon become $2/month.
Competition will start to grind down the price structure of most hosts and it will become even more of a commodity than it is now.
The intent of Hostt is to continue to grow our position as the world’s premier FREE WORDPRESS HOSTING option and remain there until one of the big hosting companies realizes that FREEMIUM or FREE HOSTING is where the industry is slowly heading.
At that point, when FREEMIUM HOSTING hits the radar of the “big boys”, with industry norms, most large hosting companies will start to want to steer their business models into some form of FREEMIUM HOSTING.
FREEMIUM has worked for Pandora in music, Gmail with email, and Netflix for movies.
Why the hosting industry hasn’t figured it out?…no clue.
But rest assured… we will be there waiting when Google keywords for FREE HOSTING, FREE WORDPRESS HOSTING, AND FREE HOST are in vogue. 🙂
Until then, we continue our mission to shake things up and provide value for the folks wanting to get an online presence with FREE WORDPRESS HOSTING or for CHEAP HOSTING.
Oh…and remember that you can always reach me via Whatsapp (Im out of the US for the foreseeable future)..1-786-255-4739.
