Last month my friend and mentor Daegan Smith shot me a quick email about this new product launch for Host Then Profits. Basically a ‘sorry I didn’t tell you sooner, you might want to check it out.’ I checked.
I Was Shocked!
For the last nine months or so I’ve been looking for affordable Internet marketing tools that did the job right without draining a beginners budget.
- Web Hosting
- Video Hosting
- Web Conferencing
- Web Page Creation
- Internet Marketing Training
The best, least costly method I could come up with, not counting Internet marketing training, ran about one hundred dollars a month overhead. Tack on at least another hundred for quality Internet marketing training.
Host Then Profits is $9.97 a month, you get;
– 4 domain hosting which includes one C-panel –
Auto-responder system which includes 5 campaigns
(up to 500 subscribers)
– Blogger Builder. Create up to 4 blogs using our
turnkey site builder.
– Video producing system. Create up to 5 killer
videos with just a couple of simple clicks.
– Hundreds of templates for video capture pages
to build your list of prospects and leads.
– Live Conference Room for up to 5 attendees.
– Full access to the Best Live Training with the
best coaches in the industry. All under one very
In short every thing an aspiring Internet marketer needs to make his or her mark on-line, economically.
Time To Test
How many times have you seen an awesome offer, it has everything and the kitchen sink, only to find it…wanting?
The “easy to understand and follow directions” are anything but, the support staff doesn’t speak your language….., you know the drill.
I picked up a Domain name, from GoDaddy, I didn’t realise you can save time and register with GVO, and built a blog. It was a bit different from my other Hosting account, but not much of learning curve, not with Mark Call’s excellent training videos.
I fought off the impulse to do it the way I already know, new system, learn it right the first time out, this time.
It came time to put an Opt in form on my new blog, We Occupy Lansing, I went to my iContact account and built a new list, started to create an Opt In Form, caught myself, went to Host Then Profits to use their auto-responder system. Another short learning curve.
It Starts Getting Exciting!
Really exciting, I start to build an Opt In Form, and get blown away by all the Templates.
I didn’t need to test further, Host then Profits has every thing I’ve tried to piece together, in one place ay an affordable price.
Time To Practice What I’m Going To Preach
If I’m going to promote Host then Profits and GVO to my team it just wouldn’t do to have my main blog at a different Hosting Provider, need to switch over.
Now, if you have ever tried to change Hosting Providers you know what a pain it can be. I tried to change once before, it took just over a month to move my data, and before I bought I stated my intentions of moving my websites to my new account. Not only did I have to jump through hoops, they hid the hoops to boot.
It took one day after the transfer to see I was paying more and getting about the same level of service.
Bite The Bullet
My old Hosting account is due for renewal on the first of December, I had a month. On November 1 I sent in a support request to see how long it would take to switch over my data, and to see how long it took to get an answer. I sent in the support ticket right before going to bed.
My ticket was answered about twenty minutes after I sent it in.
I upgraded on November 2, 2011 and was prepared to spend at least a week with the data transfer, making sure I back up all posts in the interim.
It’s done, less than 24 hours after I started the process it’s finished, this blog and all my other blogs and websites are at GVO, now. By the end of this month my old Auto-Responder will be history. It’s going to be a lot of work to change over, but well worth it.
I can combine my lists, I took some bad advice at the start of my Internet marketing career, and as a result I have several lists with the same people on them.
Lots of work to do, new Lead Capture Pages to design, more emails than I care to number to rewrite, and a much more effective way to get my word out.
I’ll tell you this, it’s an exciting time to be alive.
