Now a day, why companies are giving more value to new customers rather than old and loyal customers. Is this approach really benefited? Many bloggers and expert in this field recommended Hostgator hosting services.
Currently working on my dream project, so I do not want to take any risk by selecting a wrong web hosting service. I googled for “Best Web Hosting” and more different keywords.
Many ads popups Hostgator, GoDaddy, 1and1, Justhost, Bluehost, iPage and so on. Also, I read lots of articles about Web Hosting services.
Whom To Believe ? Everyone Is Affiliate Here
I was really curious to know “why each one gives me same references?”. I research that blogger’s website and hosting services by using online tools like “whois” and it exposes totally different things in front of me. Those bloggers use the different hosting system but do not recommend it.
Most marketing experts and bloggers have used that system but they are not talking about that. Those same people are talking(encourage) others to buy hosting from Hostgator, GoDaddy, 1&1, Justhost, Bluehost, iPage etc but they are not using those hosting services.
After doing little research, I find each one is making money by doing affiliate with those companies. I strongly believe we should affiliate those things which we use.
Why I Left Hostgator Who Is One Of Best Hosting Service In World?
I am a loyal customer of Hostgator from last 10 years. From few months before, there are financial crises in my life. It is very hard for me to pay around $15/month for hosting.
I requested to Hostgator to reduce cost and asked me to give offer which they provide to new customers but they refused. I believe that they have rights for that.
That time I understand most of the businesses are more concern to get new customers rather than continue with old loyal customers.
It hurts and I decide to left Hostgator and shift to another hosting. There are many options like GoDaddy, 1&1, Justhost, Bluehost, iPage and so on. But, I am interested in something different. For which I have curiosity and excited and most of the heavy traffic bloggers use that but never recommended.
Now A Day,businesses Are Interested In New Customers Rather Than Old Loyal Customers
As per my above experience with Hostgator, I find most of the businesses are more interested to spend on prospect rather than old customers. Is it really nice strategy? Why are they not providing the good offer for old buddies who are loyal with those businesses for many years?
In future, when I will be a big entrepreneur;-). I will prefer to give more offers to old customers who are in trouble. Because it is more easy to keep and continue with old customers rather new one. It needs to spend less money 😀
What I Learn From Hostgator Behavior?
Hostgator teach me two lessons as a Customer:
1. Never be loyal with a big company like Hostgator who do not care about your financial situation.
2. Change your service provider frequently because a new customer you are more respectful.
Hostgator teach me two lessons as an Entrepreneur:
1. Try to be flexible and polite with your customer financial situation.
2. Give more attention and respect to old customers rather than a new prospect.
