Every business person wants to know what their return on their investment is going to be like.
Some businesses take a substantial investment before they’re able to get off the ground.
For example, a business selling clothes would have to first have the products manufactured, warehouse stocked with common sizes, and an ordering system put in place before they could take their first order.
The cost to starting a business is one of the biggest obstacles people face and the reason why most people decide to work a secular job.
Reseller hosting is an exceptional industry because it requires a very small upfront investment especially in comparison as to what you can make.
Return On Investment In The Online World
The reason I got started working online was because the low barrier to entry.
My first website was a professional wrestling news website I built with my identical twin brother.
In the late 90’s we were in junior high-school and were also into professional wrestling.
For under $100 we were able to get a website online, start writing about pro wrestling, and eventually started reaching so many visitors big advertisers started buying ad space.
I was amazed at the amount of money we were able to make from such a low investment.
Reseller Hosting Provides This Same Oppertunity
Web hosting is a much needed service all across the world.
Having a website in 2018 is absolutely essential for any business that wants to stay afloat and provide their customers with the most up-to-date information.
Personally, I Google everything before spending.
From restaurants to appliance repair, I don’t hire someone for a service until I do my research!
As a Reseller, you should use this leverage to capture clients and earn their business web hosting.
Our Reselling Infastructure
Many web hosting companies offer Reseller Hosting packages, there are actually so many out there I get exhausted when trying to do competitive research.
However, we’ve designed our Reseller platform here at NameHero to be extremely unique.
Our main selling point is that we offering high-speed cloud hosting that would cost a company hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars a month if they went out and built their own infrastructure from scratch.
For example, just the software licensing for one of our Reseller nodes is upwards of $100+ per month.
In addition to this, we offer our Resellers tons of added features that will help win you customers.
- Free SSL ($90/year per domain Savings)
- Free Cloudflare w/Railgun ($200/mo per domain Savings)
- LiteSpeed Web Server
- Free LiteSpeed Cache
- One Click WordPress Installs/Updates/Staging
- Solid State Drives (SSD) Protected By Raid 10
- Web Host Manager Control Panel (with cPanel)
- PHP Selector
Most of our competitors will try to nickel-and-dime for such features, but instead we try to be a “one stop shop” to prepare our customers with all the tools necessary to become successful.
How Many Clients Until You’re Profitable?
Let’s say you purchase our Corporate Reseller hosting package at our current promotional rate of $21.42/per month (paid 24 months).
Your profitability would look something like this:
5 Clients @ $29.95/month = $149.75/Month ~ 599% ROI
5 Clients @ $9.95/month = $49.75/Month ~ 132.23% ROI
10 Clients @ $5.95/month = $59.50/Month ~ 177.78% ROI
Given our feature-rich infastructure you’re able to go out and find local customers and offer a bit higher of a price than the “name brand” hosting companies all while being able to give the customer personal attention.
A sample package may look something like this:
5GB WebSpace *Overselling Allowed*
Hosting For Unlimited Domains
500GB Monthly Bandwidth *Overselling Allowed*
Free SSL ($90/year per domain Savings)
Free Cloudflare w/Railgun ($200/mo per domain Savings)
Free LiteSpeed Cache
One Click WordPress Installs/Updates/Staging
Since we allow overselling at NameHero you’re able to oversell your space but are only billed for the actual package allocation (100GB).
You’ll find that the majority of your customers actually rarely come close to their allocated resources.
The good thing about us being a cloud hosting infrastructure, you can always scale your customers up to a VPS or add another Reseller Hosting package to your business.
Target Local Customers
Some resellers have a hard time coming up with a “micro niche” to focus on. I recommend starting with your local market and starting with service-based/small businesses. Some examples include:
- HVAC (Heating/Cooling)
- Lawn Service
- Garage Door Repairs
- Handyman Services
- Used Car Lots
- Vape Shops
- Local Gyms
- Local Restaurants
- Gardening Services
- Dog Walking Services
- Babysitters / Child Care
- Religious Organizations / Churches
- Private Schools
- Appliance Repairs
- Moving Services
- Rental Truck Services
- Speciality Lessons: Piano, Dance, Yoga, Personal Training
- Snow Removal
I have prepared a PDF document that lists these as well as ROI calculations based on our Corporate Reseller package.
How Much ROI Can You Expect? 599% Monthly?!?
I filmed a video tutorial where I break all of this down and also explain some very effective sales pitches:
Reseller hosting provides a unique opportunity for people of all ages, skill sets, and technical knowledge the ability to create a highly profitable business without investing thousands (or hundreds) of dollars.
