I am offering my services as a web hosting business consultant. This means that for a fixed fee, you will receive analysis/advice about your web hosting business, how to market to obtain and keep clients, and how to develop your business. I can also offer writing services for various purposes.

With over four years’ experience in the industry, I am well aware of the market. I have been offering ‘web hosting consultancy’ as a private service to my own reseller and dedicated clients for around two years now, and they agree that it has enabled them to expand their clientbase, and ultimately, business.

The Consultancy service includes:

• Commenting on existing services (their effectiveness, market placement, how they are presented and their functionality);
• Helping your business achieve growth through finding a niche market (locally-based services, etc);
• Completion a full PPPP (Price, Product, Place and Promotion) analysis of the business;
• Custom marketing tips based around the client’s business model;
• Assistance with marketing (up to a month – translates to 5 hours work) based on a pre-set budget by the client;
• Suggestion of ideas for new and innovative services, and how to market them; based upon the company’s size and ability to deliver these services;
• Assistance with the wording of web hosting sites so as to improve sales.

I can also provide writing/authoring services for:

• Hosting site content;
• Advertising / promotional materials;
• Press releases;
• Terms of Use / Privacy Policy documents;
• Articles;
• Other services on request.

I can provide sales of such material on request.

As mentioned, I’ve been in the industry for four years. I have been providing a service based on what I’ve mentioned for two years, but only to my own clients and as a complementary service.

In terms of sales, I have had experience with my own web hosting business for the same amount of time.

Numerous clients have noticed what I call ‘strategic sales speak’. I get straight-to-the-point, don’t make bogus claims which put clients off (let’s take for example marketing this advert with ‘you can improve your sales by 500%!’); and most importantly, I don’t disguise that I’m trying to sell a product or service to people. Doing so can irritate prospective clients immensely, and I understand the importance of both being personal in terms of their requirements and everyday speech.

Now, I’m looking to offer it to a wider client base as part-time work. Consequently, my pricing for this service is low because I am just starting out on a public level.

In terms of writing, I have written content for my own web sites, and also press releases; and advertising material, and I’m prepared to mock-up some content just as an example for people.

I can provide the web hosting consultancy service for a one-off price of $100-$140 (depending on the size of the project and business – service list and web site). For this, you will get all the services mentioned. Pricing is negotiable.

Pricing for writing services depends on what is required. For example, I can provide a Terms of Use statement for an ‘average hosting company’ selling shared linux packages, reseller accounts and dedicated servers for $40, or a full hosting site’s content for $175.

I will be completely hands-on with your business - getting to know you as a business owner, and then shaping the service around your own personal needs. Rather than fitting you around my business model, I always work the other way round.
