    Customers, where are you?

    I have had hosting for about a month now, PLEASE someone look at my site and tell me what i need to do to get customers.

    I have joined 2checkout as the only option i had was PayPal. Had nothing more yet, any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

    I have NO budget,

    My site is dailyhosting.net

    I would remove the 5 out of 10 rating from your page. That might be a turn off.

    Also... what kind of advertising have you done? Any search engine optimisation? Do you advertise locally and actively discuss things in forums such as this one?

    Advertising doesnt have to cost a single penny by the way.

    Yeah, you definately need to advertise if you have not already.

    Also, you site, at least to me looks like a standard web hosting site, what do you offer that will make a customer choose you over another host? You really need to consider that. Maybe include more information about your servers, backups, uptime, etc.

    I did a bit of advertising, by submitting to directories, etc, the most i got actyually was when i changed my MSN handle on messenger, to an offer i have, got about 6 there.

    Its a bit akward for me to advertise locally, and in papers, as i am from the uk, but i am targetting the US audience.

    You would be best redoing the text as it will cause problems. Especially now you admitted it publicly on a forum.

    It's a trade secret! You have to pass a secret test before you get accepted to use the "registration form".
