We spend a lot of time, money and effort in creating a killer website. Then we go about promoting it to the masses which costs more time, money and effort. We expect our super website to be a success by getting lots of hits with visitors pouring in thanks to our zealous and costly promotion program. So why do we go to all that trouble and then do some stupid things to cause our business to fail? Let’s see what some of those stupid things are.
[Average size of your web hosting resellers page(s) + any graphics included within] * [number of visitors you expect each day * number of pages each visitor will view] * [30 days in a month] = Total Monthly Data Transfer Usage.
SSL Support: If you are going to host an e-commerce application, than make sure that your host provides you with SSL support. SSL certificate guarantees your users that their credit card information is not accessible to packet sniffers. Your host should have 24/7 monitoring facility of all incoming requests to prevent security breach.
Google Webmaster Tools – If you’ve set up a webmaster account with Google, you have access to a bunch of reports about your site, one of which is a “broken links” report. This covers your entire site, so it can be a very valuable monitoring tool. From your dashboard, click on your web site link, then Diagnostics, then Web Crawl, then Not Found to see the broken links report. If you have a links page on your site, you should check this report regularly.
And if you can’t find your host mentioned anywhere, simply ask! Registration is usually free and so many people read the unlimited cpanel reseller hosting offers boards that you should get an answer quickly.
Do not fall victim to gimmicks, scams and hidden fees. They may have low prices, but then they add on fee after fee. That is why it is imperative that you learn is included in any hosting plan you are considering. You should also consider the features you are likely to use. You should select a plan that includes all the features you need to avoid being charged extra fees.
A blog can be the life or death of any MLM business. If you do not have one, it will surely mean certain doom for your business. If you do have a blog, and you post regularly, you may just get more business than you even hoped for. Blogs are the driving force behind every successful internet based business, especially if you’re dealing with an MLM system. I certainly had no luck at all until I started my own blog. For the best results, you should register a domain name and get web hosting for your blog. The free options are great, and they do work well, but nothing beats a self hosted blog. It is yours, and you have complete freedom to make it look, feel, and act like you want. My final tip of the day is, if you don’t already have a blog, start one.
