Frog Host has been growing at a steady pace but since I haven’t made a blog post in nearly a month I figured it was at least time to talk about things. So in this post I’ll quickly talk about the marketing push we plan on doing as well as some miscellaneous things we’ve done.
Marketing is a big key in what makes a web host very successful. Word of mouth only gets you so far especially when you do not have much of a customer base to promote your services to begin with. You do not typically see a snow ball effect of customers referring others until you have at least 500 users which obviously Frog Host does not have. Even at 500 why settle with a steady stream of growth at that point? Why not turn that 500 users into 1000 in two months instead of a year?
So our first step of the marketing push will be to find ourselves a new artist and designer so we can start getting the necessary marketing materials created. Unfortunately our previous artist left us high and dry and ran with some money we paid them for some new work. So I’ll be finding ourselves a new artist and possibly even just html/css guy in general as having a single person doing it all would be best. Previously we were using different people for different aspects which can be a pain to deal with. The banners and various other images are the first thing people see. That could be on a web site we’re advertising on as well as affiliates who are hoping to cash in on our potentially big payouts.
So our marketing push you’ll probably see Frog Host advertised on various web hosting forums as well as being on miscellaneous web sites potentially some who are hosted by us who Hawk Host hosts would would be great candidates to advertise on. So if you have a site you think would make sense for us to advertise on and you’re hosted by us just send me an email which would be tony then the at froghost.com portion.
The other things we’ve been working on is just the forum now has a nice pretty theme thanks to Brian searching the internet for a green one. Then just miscellaneous fixes to our CPU tracking system and various other internal aspects being worked on. So things are slowly being worked on and improved on but it is indeed a slow process.
