    Dear Sales and Marketing Team:

    My name is Gregory Hahn and I’m sending you this e-mail on behalf of to let you know about the opportunity to purchase
    advertisement space on one of the Internet’s upcoming web hosting search
    engines. is a website that specializes in web hosting
    promoting. It is geared towards businessmen and women who want to find
    reputable web hosting services. Basically what makes us unique is that
    advertisers pay for results (visitors) and not for impressions. Other
    companies charge per impression. is a property of SmartBiz. SmartBiz targets small to medium
    sized businesses. has only been around since April of 2002
    and we are seeing an influx of users on a daily basis. According to our
    statistics there are about 10,000 users per month. We have limited
    positions available for advertisement and would like to know if you would be
    interested in placing an ad on our website. We can also post your web
    server information on a per-click basis on our website.
    Below is a price sheet, which states the different options you have to
    purchase. We are flexible with our prices:

    · Banners, Sponsored Links and Spotlight Listings are priced by bidding.
    · Paid Spots:
    1. Leads – - We will be selling
    leads for $10.00 per lead (pricing is VERY flexible).
    2. Right 120 x 90 pixel position - $250.00 a month - there will be three of
    them circulating on the right where Interliant is now.

    The pay per click model gives incentives to deliver clicks
    users to hosting companies rather than trying to get users on our web site
    so that we gain revenue from impressions. This is why is
    revolutionizing the way in which web hosting is being portrayed on the
    If you would like a copy of our Media Kit for more information or if you
    have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I hope we can do
    business together in the near future.

    Well, I think it makes more sense to say hi first, test the waters a bit, then plug the old offer, but that's just me. - Where professionals discuss web hosting.
