One of the most common pre-sales questions we get for our Reseller Hosting packages is how much does it cost before you’re up and running with your own business?
Reselling web hosting provides one of the lowest barriers of entry of virtually any other business out there.
- There is no inventory to stock
- You don’t have to deploy an expensive dedicated server or VPS
- You don’t have to be a “server guru” or “techie” to begin offering your clients hosting
- You don’t even have to know how to create a website
For as low as $0.44 per DAY, 1/10th the cost of a cup of coffee at Starbucks, you can start your own web hosting business 100% white-labeled to your company.
To further illustrate my point, I’ve filmed a detailed video tutorial where I challenge new Resellers to get their first 5 – 10 customers upon launching their business. To help, I explain exactly how I got my first 10 customers here at NameHero:
When you first start a business, you have all these goals and expectations, which are good, but I think it’s extremely important to remember you had to crawl before you could walk, and you couldn’t run until you could walk. Starting your own business is no different!
Your first 5 – 10 customers aren’t going to allow you to quit your job tomorrow morning, but they will cover your startup costs, and begin building the foundation of your business.
Looking at NameHero today, it’s hard to fathom, at one time we only had 5 – 10 customers. But we did! I also had to start somewhere. I didn’t just launch and overnight become what we are today.
It all started with my first 5 – 10 then I just kept building.
I very specifically remember calling my grandfather when we hit our first 100 customers and he said “well it’s now just a numbers game, keep doing what you’re doing and don’t stop.”
That’s what I did always remembering what McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc said, “If you work just for money, you’ll never make it, but if you love what you’re doing and you always put the customer first, success will be yours.”
Before I knew it, we had 1,000 customers, then 2,000. Now we host over 100,000+ websites across the world.
But I still hold tight to our foundation and continuing building while ensuring everything we do is in the best interest of the customer!
I hope the video above helps you out regardless where you are in your business. Feel free to ask questions and post suggestions on it! Additionally, double check you’re subscribed to our YouTube channel as this is just the beginning of new training I’m releasing!
