3. Choose the segment you like to be in (5 min)
At first, it might be hard to think about what segment you want to be in. And of course, this fully depends on your business model. Here some tips to help you decide:
Are you a web designer?
Your clients love to have a single point of contact for their website. And research tells us that your clients do not mind of paying a bit more for having a single point of contact.
Are you in an emerging market?
Some notable emerging market economies include India, Mexico, Russia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, China, and Brazil. From experience we know that the price point is often an important thing. Often in these markets the rule is:
“Masses equals cashes”
Meaning that often your price-point will be a bit lower than selling in the UK markets, but you need to find out a way to get a lot of clients on board.
Don’t become the next “CHEAP” Hosting company
Your clients are not looking for CHEAP, they are looking for a company that can add value.
Make sure you clearly communicate how you or your service adds value to your clients. This can be: 24/7 support, hosting on UK servers, phone support or anything else that can distinguish you from the (cheap) bulk hosting companies.
A lot of hosting companies do not offer good phone support or help with Hacked WordPress sites. So, find out your unique proposition!
