Web hosting is SO retail

Written by Alec Ellis

You have 1 or 2 seconds to make an impression, and 2 or 3 seconds more to make a sale, or forgetrepparttar web hosting business!!

Web hosting as a business has taken off inrepparttar 134428 last 12 months, with a vengeance.

How many web sites are onrepparttar 134429 Web today? They all have to be hosted somewhere,repparttar 134430 result being, there are now thousands of web hosts aroundrepparttar 134431 globe today. How do people decide to choose you?

Potential customers will talk to friends; perhaps ask a local web design group; or consult their ISP (Internet Service Provider); but this may result in knowledge of only one or two hosting companies. There are hosting directories, and review sites which may be governed by whoever pays forrepparttar 134432 largest ad or personal opinions that seem popular. The visitor will still have to makerepparttar 134433 final decision.

If these visitors make their own decisions, and there are thousands of web hosts to choose from, there are very few seconds to deliver your offer, which must be instantly obvious. What can you do to turn this streaming traffic into sales?

First View – The look of your web site

Arerepparttar 134434 design, content and delivery up to customer expectations? Ifrepparttar 134435 presentation has obviously been thought about; a conscientious effort to delivery and content; then it is likelyrepparttar 134436 visitor will believe thatrepparttar 134437 hosting company will also look after their site conscientiously. Ifrepparttar 134438 presentation is poor, then forget it, there are more than enough web hosts that look good. Of course, torepparttar 134439 other extreme, ifrepparttar 134440 web host’s site looks a million dollars, it is likely thatrepparttar 134441 visitor will be expecting to a pay a ‘million’ too!

The Initial Offers – What are your best packages?

Withrepparttar 134442 sudden growth ofrepparttar 134443 web,repparttar 134444 hosting industry has had to take a retail approach to content delivery. Inrepparttar 134445 retail traderepparttar 134446 offers are so many, thatrepparttar 134447 customer has to learn to speed read, or speed view. Visitors to web hosting sites have not gotrepparttar 134448 time to read allrepparttar 134449 details on each of every one of thousands of sites, so speed viewing is a must; or is it?

Web hosts who have nothing to sell usually hide this fact by showing columns of text, expectingrepparttar 134450 visitor to sort out what is good to them or not. The usual explanation for this is “ The visitor knows what they want and will find it without our hassling them.” The expectation is that with less hasslerepparttar 134451 visitor will more likely become a customer. Not true.

Web hosts that have special offers, great deals, or offer specialised packages for say private, business or corporate customers; will tell you just that. Think about it, why hiderepparttar 134452 fact you have a winner? By taking a retail approach to a very retail business,repparttar 134453 real dealmakers are not ‘backward in coming forward’.

Obviously making everything onrepparttar 134454 site an ‘excellent’ offer isrepparttar 134455 other extreme. Most web hosts offer 90% of what their competition offers, so to point out every good point offered would be overkill. The likely result would be that you would showrepparttar 134456 visitor that you are new torepparttar 134457 industry, and less experienced; not good in times of future support.
