Most people don’t know what an affiliate is or how affiliate marketing works. Well, being an accountant who handles all the commissions for affiliate marketing payouts, I am here to tell you how it works!
You can sign up with many companies including ours and become an affiliate. In order to do this, you will need to sign up on our affiliate page and we will supply you a website URL specific to your account. From there you will add this link to your personal website.
This helps promote our company, and when someone clicks on the link on your page to sign up for a hosting package, we will be able to determine that the customer originally came from your website and you will receive a commission based off of the customer purchase.
Not only does this build a relationship between you and us but it also allows you to earn some income on the side. Once you are very familiar with affiliate marketing you can apply your skills to other areas also. You can sign up for multiple programs and earn income through multiple sources. Affiliate marketing is also free to sign up and there is no investment involved! It’s simple and easy too!
I hope this helps you better understand what an affiliate marketer is and I hope to see you sign up soon!
What is cloud hosting? It is a form of web hosting that were once only used by the larger online companies like Google and Amazon to host their website, but now even small businesses are starting to make the move from traditional hosting services to cloud servers. Unlike a dedicated hosting plan where one client is given exclusive use of one server to host a website, in a cloud system, the load of hosting a website is spread across multiple servers that work together. This is the “cloud.”
The biggest benefit of using a cloud hosting service is that it is more reliable and less prone to crashing than dedicated server hosting. Because the workload is divided across multiple servers, if one of them crashes, the website they host will not go down. Using cloud servers your website will rarely go down, unless you take it down for maintenance works.
Cloud servers can also provide your website with large bandwidth allocations. So even if your website unexpectedly gains a very large level of internet traffic, instead of slowing down and even crashing (which usually happens with dedicated servers), a cloud server system another server will just provide your website with the resources it needs to stay online and function as normal. This is great for small businesses because as they expand their website will be able to keep up with them.
Another great benefit of using cloud hosting is that the servers are not located on site. Companies no longer need to own and maintain their servers, this leaves their IT team with more time to devote to other pressing matters in the company. Not having hulking computer servers also mean that you will be saving a lot of floor area in your offices and the total electric consumption will also be considerably lowered as a result, and lowering your company’s carbon footprint as a result.
The main reason why most small companies have not switched over to cloud hosting is that they have issues with the price, but the truth is that the costs of this kind of hosting service has considerably fallen the past couple of months. There are also some hosting companies that will only charge according to the amount of resources that the website uses, which means great savings for companies who know how to manage their resources properly so that they can get all the benefits of using cloud servers without the premium price.
Cloud hosting is poised to take over the web hosting landscape in the next couple of years because it can benefit companies large and small websites alike. With the costs continually going down, more companies are starting to migrate their websites to the more reliable cloud servers. If you use cloud servers, you no longer have to worry about downtime so you can focus most of your attention and resources in the other important aspects of your business. If you want your company to expand, then start by transferring your website onto the “cloud.”
This holiday season we held a sweepstakes on Facebook that not only gifted one lucky winner with a new iPad Mini, but also benefited families in need.
We decided to match each new Facebook “like” our page received during the month of December with a $1.00 donation to Habitat for Humanity while also entering each new fan into their drawing for an iPad Mini.
With the help of new fans, we were able to raise $1,552 from our Facebook Sweepstakes for Habitat for Humanity, in addition to donations raised on our billing page. Habitat for Humanity is an international organization that uses modern technologies and volunteer labor to build sustainable, affordable homes for low-income families, as well as those who have been affected by natural disasters.
As for the iPad Mini, out of over 1,000 entrants, we are excited to announce Mary Cloud as the winner!
During my winter break from Ohio University, I had the opportunity to gain experience in business development as an intern with Brain Host. Though I am sad to say that my time with Brain Host is coming to an end, I am incredibly grateful to have had this opportunity. Internships are a privilege that not all students are lucky enough to have, and I feel truly honored to have been hired.
To say my internship was a learning experience would be an understatement. When I started this job, I could not honestly explain to you what this company actually does. I still don’t know if I can perfectly explain the differences between cloud hosting and traditional web hosting, but I am definitely closer to being on the right track!
I had the opportunity to do some research on some key elements in website marketing, and how to structure a website in order to gain the most sales. There were so many details that I had never even thought of that have been shown to make a huge difference. One of the most interesting details I read about was the importance of the “bandwagon effect.” The bandwagon effect expresses the importance of mentioning how many subscribers or purchasers a site has in order to attract more future sales. Doing this research was one of my favorite parts of this internship, because I know that everything I learned could in some way be applied to my post-graduate career (assuming someone somewhere hires me).
Also while here, I did a lot of research about potential clients. I learned all about small businesses in Cleveland that are in need of help with their websites. I looked through hundreds of blogs about motherhood, with the objective of developing new business partnerships with some of these bloggers. Although I was only flipping through the blogs to find contact information, I learned more about coupon clipping, teething and gluten-free dieting than I ever wanted to know. At first I could not imagine how repeatedly reading about some stay-at-home-mom’s life story would be relevant to my job. Then, I started to learn about how to draft emails with a personal touch in order to approach potential clients about working together. This was something I am really glad I learned how to do, and could definitely see myself doing in the future. Continue Reading
Here at Brain Host, we always try to be on the cutting edge of innovation. In the past three months, our Operations Headquarters has gone through some extensive changes. Not only with our hard-working and diligent staff, but also cosmetically (to our office, that is)!
Let me start by saying we have an amazing new President and CEO, Ryan Niddel, and that am I proud to say I am his right hand. Brain Host also has brought on a new graphic designer, marketing assistant, accountant, two programmers, as well as a small army of interns! Without these new team members, we would all definitely be struggling due to the large amount of growth our business has experienced!
Not only have we altered our team, but we have also made some exciting modifications to our workplace! Let’s just say the whole inside is, well, completely different. Prior to our new bold and brand-related color palette, our walls were washed in colors of muted earth tones, and the walls adorned with irrelevant artwork. These colors and these pieces of art did not represent us as a company. Continue Reading
