Hosting

This is another area that is going to be VERY important in your online ventures. Don’t take this lightly. You are going to want to choose a host that will offer what you need at the moment, but also one that gives you the opportunity to grow. This is the one area that we refuse to skimp in. A good or bad host can either make you or break you. If you pick a real cheap one, & their service keeps going down & people can’t view your site, then you are throwing money away & losing prospects & sales. But at the same time, if you choose a High Priced one, then you are throwing money away again if you aren’t using all the services they offer. So you need to choose a happy median. And, yes, there is one, just check the end of this article.

 

The one thing that I do have to say here is – Stay away from free Hosts. Free hosts are fine for personal webpages, but not for a Business NetworkWebsite. And even if you are just building a mailing list, it is a Business Site. Free hosts put their banners & ads on your sites. The only ads you want people to see are the ones that are going to make you money. That is the bottom line.

Auto Responders /Mailing List Managers

Another very important choice to be made, there are all types of auto responders & mailing list managers around. You want to choose one that is right for you & your needs. Once again, do not choose a free one. It comes down to the ads once again. They allow you to use them for free so they can place ads & sell advertising at the top of your messages.

The main features that you want to look for in auto responders are:

Ease of Use

Ability to schedule messages ahead of time

Ability to send Broadcast Emails, Manually Send to list

Not all Auto responders offer all these services. Prices can range from here to all the way east of Eden a month a month. Choose what is best for you.

Lead/Squeeze Pages

This is going to be one of the most important things that you have on your website. I am going to devote an entire post, that’s going to be a real long post, to just these alone. This is the page you are going to use to capture your prospects info.

My Recommendations

I am going to give you my recommendation for all the above needs in one place. I have been using this service for over a year. The customer service is excellent, any problems are handled quickly, & the Owner of the site goes overboard to assist the Members in any way that he can.  We are talking about Lead Generating Tools.

Now to bring this post to a close, here is the hosting service that I personally use and I highly recommend it. There is many hosting companies out there, but in terms of service this is the one you want. I can not stress this enough, you stand and fall with your hosting service, and that’s one headache you don’t need. Follow the link, watch the video and decide for yourself.
