Hosting … Does It Really Matter?

Category:Anniversary,Articles By Dee Owens,Personalized Marketing Inc,PM Inc,Real Marketing for Organic Growth Tags : 

Old and New – Hosting Then and Now

To see what is best for the clients, we must see what is best for the company as well. As with our new look, we did an “out with the old, in with the new” concerning the design and primary services. We have always offered customized services and will continue to do so, however, we needed to find a better way to give you what you need. Think about your website hosting, maybe you do not have one yet and are looking at some options. Now, think about when you go buy a car or computer, you not only look at the brand name but also the value of your dollar. Sure, there are hosting companies that seem to offer packages that look like you are paying literally pennies per dollar when in reality you are giving up critical elements.

Website hosting today is shared hosting, which essentially means that your site and potentially hundreds of others are all using the same server (shoving more files into an already cramped drawer). Shared hosting is not a bad thing, but you want to use a company that offers packages where you have fewer sites on one server. You also want a company that offers backups, CDN, Firewalls, SSL, Emails, and set up for the type of website you want. Your website is your “Online Presence, Your Storefront, Your Point of Contact” it should be hosted where it can really shine and not be bogged down by overloaded resources. 

Is It Worth You?

Which then comes in companies like Personalized Marketing Inc, we do website designs, we also do website support, we also pay attention to the fine print on hosting options. We want to know if the service we recommend is actually worth its bottom dollar or if you will be paying for substandard quality. We also want to know what their customer service is like? Do you talk to a machine or wait days for a response? Do you find yourself waiting on the phone for hours only to get someone ‘reading a screen’? Many sites have ‘buy this and get that’, is the ‘this’ worth the ‘that’? (Sorry, spiraling for a moment there)

You will notice that we do not have many hosting companies listed on Personalized Marketing Inc. Either we have not tested the other company, or we have and found that it’s not the best solution for us or our clients. Providing customized services means that you personalize them to each person or organization. It also means that you do the homework and if you find something better, you let the client know.

A Decade Later

No, we did not go into this offering everything that we do. What we did, however, was talk to the client, find out what they needed, figured out the best way to do it, then offered it to them. If we cannot provide, we find somewhere else that can. We want you to be happy with your services, we want each client to be successful in their ventures, we also know that times change and so must Personalized Marketing Inc.

Just like with our original name, Personalized Marketing & Promotions, we realized that to offer the best services possible, we had to rethink how we provided them. What areas were best suited and which services had to go. Personalized Marketing Inc offers many of the original services, but some things were dropped. Why? Because there was a better company, it required a skillset we did not have on staff, or it was a ‘fluff’ product. Take website development, yes, we can and have done Joomla, Drupal, even Ruby on Rails. We no longer offer support or builds for Ruby. Why? Because there are developers out there that do it better and all the time. It’s a part of putting YOU first and being a transparent company.

Update

One thing that I have done to improve the level of services we offer is return to the University of Phoenix for my M.B.A with a concentration in marketing. Why? Because times have changed, and everyone needs to be refreshed or learn what’s new out there. Our Manager Cindy lives and breathes business administration, she also loves editing and is a killer designer (see the Main Chess Pieces Slide on site). I look forward to great things coming from her and the skills she offers our clients.

We are still working on the Real Marketing for Organic Growth workbook. The process is taking a bit longer than originally planned but we feel that is a good thing since you should get more benefit from it. I also do not want to rush it and am trying to make sure that the topics requested are being covered.

Real Marketing For Organic Growth PT 12

It’s the most Wonderful time of the year… and Possibly Stressful as well.

The Holidays are upon us and not only do we have to find time for family, work, marketing, and all the other jobs we do on a daily basis; we also have to find time for the Holidays and all that entails. Now many of you have been thinking about what your December Goals are for several months, but if you find yourself feeling a little stressed out and not sure where to start, Today Is The Day! It is December 1st, we have 25 days until Christmas, we have 24 days to get our gifts purchased and 21 days for online shopping. That’s right, 21 days for online shopping… and that is only if you purchase overnight shipping by 4 PM December 21st.

As you may have began to realize that a large part of Real Marketing For Organic Growth revolves around finding the time to do it within your budget. But you now have to consider not only your stress levels but also those of your consumers. They have already done their “Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday / Week shopping. They have already began deciding what to get their family and friends, they are already feeling the squeeze in their wallets and are wanting a way to do it all and stay on budget.

So how do you help them and stay on target?

That’s the beauty of having your own products, doing your own marketing, creating your own sales, you can showcase your lovely items and offer special holiday discounts with a little incentive. Asking for shares is one thing, inspiring them is another. Write a catchy subject line, create a motivating phrase, give them something more than just products but also something fun. For the clients of Personalized Marketing Inc and ourselves, we will be spending part of our marketing endeavors on lifting people up, bringing smiles, sharing traditions and hopefully inspiring others to do the same. Sure we will have our own Holiday Discounts but we will also be giving back to those we reach by posting something more than just a sales ad.

This Holiday Season when you think of your promotional post, think of what you see each time you go to your own social networks, are they full of “buy, buy, better buy now” sales ads? Do you find yourself scrolling through those sales ads? Guess what a lot of viewers are too. However, are you stopping to look at the cute videos, maybe the kittens and puppies in holiday cheer, or even commenting on an “Elf On The Shelf” post? Which one do you prefer? I bet your focus group, your consumers, your hopefuls are paying attention to the same thing you are.

You can help them by helping with their stress levels, you can stay on target by offering things that do not cost you anything additional while providing extra marketing materials of your own.
