FlockUpdate: August 2015

Show Notes:

Wrapping up 2014

It has been quite the year – busy to the point that I didn’t even have customer appreciation! We’ve had server migrations, network changes, hardware upgrades, and one of the biggest years of growth for Church Hosting on record – Over 110+ churches now being hosted without limits or costs! Not to leave out the fact that I had my first year of marriage and welcomed an addition as well!

While I did see a HUGE jump in Church Hosting, normal hosting has sort of taken a back seat to this year, 2015 will be on the forefront of the year bigger plans, more options, including more server options for folks looking to get in the server world, but options as well for Resellers & Designers to have partial servers and some great additions to the standing $5 & $10 plans!

So to wrap up 2014 let’s go out big! Every account has been upgraded, even Church Hosting! What’s new for paid accounts? 10GB more storage and 10GB more bandwidth each month! For Church Hosters you are no longer started out at 1GB, 5GB is now the standard for you, but as always it grows as you need it!

Starting 2015 off right!

Growth is on the radar for 2015, this past year I’ve laid the groundwork for some serious growth, now I just need a hand in getting it in place! I can use paid advertising till I’m blue in the face, but I’d love for all FlockHosters to lend a hand because Word of Mouth is so much more effective, and it’s how FlockHosting has managed to stick around for over a decade is with your help!

So I’m starting off the new year asking you to help me let folks know about FlockHosting! Easiest way is if you could add a little something to the bottom of your website that says “Hosted by FlockHosting” – simple easy, no annoying blasts to your twitter followers, Facebook friends, or spamming your address book, nothing obtrusive, just help get the word out, plain and simple!

If you are feeling super helpful, a tweet, blog, facebook post etc. about 10% off, by using the code “FOF” or Friends of FlockHosting provides 10% savings to a year or more of hosting, let your friends who have web hosting needs get to the right place and become a FlockHoster with the rest of us!

Lastly, at the end of January I’d love to give a little something away, nah let’s do three little somethings! Oh okay, you’ve pulled my arm 1 big thing, 3 little things, and a touch of hosting! How does that sound? Top three prizes are the following:

  1. Grand Prize: Google Chromebook + Google Chromecast + 6 free months of hosting!
  2. Second Prize: Google Chromecast + 3 free months of hosting!
  3. Third Prize: Google Chromecast + 1 month of free hosting!

How do you get a chance to win these great prizes? Simple, it’s all based upon the above help I’d love, and you can even earn money while doing it! Get your referral link from your customer zone login, link from your site, tell friends to mention you in the notes at sign-up, and anyone over 5 people is entered to win, grand prize however goes to the most number of people referred! So you have one month to spread the word and earn as many referrals and visitors! This is only up for FlockHosters, sorry you must be active customer in good standing to win.

big-heartLastly if you’ve made it this far and aren’t completely asleep 🙂 I’d like to say thanks! FlockHosting is a big blessing to me, it not only allows me to serve churches but it helps support me and my family – that’s huge to me! So if there is anything I can ever do to help your website, or even if you have a prayer request or three, do let me know! I’m here to help!

Have an awesome 2015! Look forward to building with you!

 

Fresh FlockHosting — Day 5: State of the Union

Continuing To Grow

If you’ve already watched the video you know some of the key things, however if you’re somewhere that doesn’t allow YouTube at the moment, the shorter (than the video by far) version is, I am asking for help.

For over a decade FlockHosting has done it’s best to be a help & blessing to those around us! I have had the blessing to talk to so many people over the years and be a help where possible, and I don’t want that to stop anytime soon! So I am hoping I can count on each of you reading to lend a hand and help out where you can!

There are a few areas I need your help, some of them have been outlined this week, things like using the Affiliate Program, Referral Cards, Facebook and Twitter – Help FlockHosting get the word out! But too for those who the Lord leads, maybe donating into FlockHosting a bit more above and beyond your monthly payment to help bolster things and build up areas that need a hand to make them a reality!

Things are continuing to grow here at FlockHosting – I hope you can help speed them along! Again I’d ask any and all customers/visitors/family/friends/etc. who are considering the idea of donating once the fundraising is up and online to truly take this to the Lord in prayer! I believe God is going to do amazing things with FlockHosting, and I just need some help to get there 100% so stay tuned! More is coming to the blog this next week on further how you can get involved & lend a hand!

Thank You!

I really mean it, thank you each for taking the time to stop in and watch the videos, read the blog posts! I know its not a short set of videos, and I know it is not maybe the easiest things to listen to as it can be technical and dry, but hopefully together we can truly take FlockHosting into a great 2nd half of 2013 and amazing things for our local areas very soon!

Fresh FlockHosting — Day 4: Spreading the Word

 

Spreading the Word!

Our growth depends on spreading the word! I however can’t get the word out on my own, and need your help – new cards are in final proof phase (making sure Facebook is spelled correctly!) and ready to goto the printer to make 500 cards to hand out, and you just need to let me know how many you need! Take a look!

BACK-CARDSFRONT-CARDS

The codes are good for both Business and Personal, and the 15% discount works for any amount of hosting size! You can save on Monthly, Quarterly, etc., up to 3 years of service savings!

If you have some feedback on FlockHosting as your hosting provider, do take a minute to give FlockHosting your rating & referral here on the comments, Facebook Page or even Twitter – but too if you would like some of these cards once they goto print, post a note here and I’ll put you down, they’ll be in by the 15th, so by FlockUpdate time they should be ready to ship out!
