TurnKey Internet Launches Refer-A-Friend Program for Black Friday 2017   no comments

Posted at Nov 15, 2017 @ 9:22am Press Release

TurnKey Internet

LATHAM, NEW YORK (November 15, 2017) – Leading Datacenter and Cloud Hosting Solutions provider TurnKey Internet, Inc. announced today the launch of their all new Refer-A-Friend program combined with the launch of their 2017 Black Friday Deals offering some of the best cloud servers, dedicated servers, and web hosting offers for 2017.

The Refer-A-Friend program provides an incentive for our valued clients who already tell their friends and colleagues about the great service they receive every day with TurnKey Internet’s Cloud-Hosted services. An easy 1-click referral link is provided to clients that can be sent via email, social media, or placed on web sites, blogs or newsletters to automatically earn a $50 service credit. Launching this program at the start of the annual Holiday seasons helps increase the rewards for existing clients who participate.

TurnKey Internet is known for running its eagerly-awaited, industry-leading deals and specials, and this year is no different. TurnKey Internet is offering up to 95% off for life on nearly every product they offer – Cloud Servers, Disaster Recovery Backup Services, Cloud Storage, Dedicated Servers, Virtual Private Servers (VPS), cPanel Web Hosting, Microsoft Windows Web Hosting, Enterprise Colocation Services, SEO Optimized Web Hosting, and much more. More information can be found at https://turnkeyinternet.net/holiday/.

In a bold move in contrast to other companies that exclude or limit their best seasonal deals from existing clients – TurnKey is rewarding existing clients with a loyalty bonus. The loyalty bonus is applied as a free month of service for every previous year of loyalty when purchasing any new services during this Holiday promotional period. This gives existing clients access to deals greater than 95% off when factoring in the free loyalty bonus months of service included.

“We love our loyal clients and I’m truly excited to expand our loyalty bonus and launch of our Refer-A-Friend program during our Holiday promotion.” Remarked Adam Wills, CEO of TurnKey Internet. “While most companies offer only their best deals to new customers, we shake up that model and put the customer first. TurnKey is focused on giving back to our loyal clients – and in turn they are our best advocates telling friends and colleagues about their experience. We have launched the Refer-A-Friend program specifically to reward those efforts by our loyal clients.“

Is Your Website Ready For The Holidays?   no comments

Posted at Nov 7, 2017 @ 10:00am Holidays,Web hosting

Is Your Website Ready For The Holidays?

It’s getting colder outside. It’s getting darker sooner. The time has been rolled back an hour, for those of us living in the United States. Winter is right around the corner and with winter, comes holidays. Thanksgiving is a few weeks away with Christmas coming in a close second and finally New Years. Now, why am I telling you all this? Matter of fact, why am I reminding you of these holidays? Isn’t this supposed to be a blog based on technology and not holiday seasons?

 

Well, I’m glad you asked. This part of the season is busy for us, due to the holiday specials we run. All the way from Black Friday to Cyber Monday. Everything is on sale for a fraction of the price. Everything from Virtual Private Servers (VPS) to top-of-the-line Dedicated Servers. During this time, traffic nearly quadruples to our main site, TurnKey Internet. Everyone wants to get in on the sales. Everyone wants to setup a website for their business. People are just shopping around for hosting providers if you will. Well, with that increased traffic comes increased strain on your servers which brings me to reason I’m writing this article.

 

With the holiday season rapidly approaching, you may decide to run a special on your products and services. The number one item that always occurs when running specials is an increased awareness of your product. That means you may have bandwidth spikes from potential customers viewing your website. You may have your products selling like hotcakes, but the question becomes, are you prepared for this? Are you prepared from the increased amount of traffic to your site? If you’re not sure, then you should continue reading.

 

As mentioned previously in this post, you will more than likely have a spike in traffic to your website which brings me to bandwidth. Do you have enough bandwidth ready to accommodate the spike in traffic your site may experience? If not, you should speak with your hosting provider about pricing plans for bandwidth.

 

Next, what about disk space? If you’re selling products online, more than likely you have a database storing the products with the customer information that is purchasing said products. Well if you’re running a special and have a higher than normal amount of people purchasing from you, you would want to ensure that you have enough disk space to accommodate said orders.  The last thing you want is your website to freeze or go off-line due to you running out of space because your database has tripled in size. You should speak with your hosting provider to ensure that you have enough adequate disk space.

 

This brings me to last point. You’ve checked your bandwidth and your disk space and they are more than adequate for your special. What’s next? Well, is your current environment sufficient to handle your increased sales? Let’s say your website is on a basic hosting account and receives a large spike of traffic during your holiday sales. Will your host throttle your account as it could be consuming too many resources? If your account is on a basic shared server, this is very high probability as the server will throttle your account for consuming too many resources. You should be aware of these limitations and speak with your hosting provider to see if they can handle your increased traffic. The last thing you want is a user who can’t place an order because when they view your site, they are seeing Resources Exceeded instead of your website.

Price Matching In the Cloud – The Art of War Without a Fight   no comments

Posted at Oct 18, 2016 @ 11:45am cloud

negotiate-for-turnkeyinternet-cloud-services

Negotiation is both an art and a form of war.  On nearly a daily basis I find myself discussing with a potential new client reviewing our Cloud Server offerings that makes a general statement that the price is too high and could we match another offer they found on the Internet.

Often these requests are inclusive of a generic statement that they saw a lower priced offer on social media web site or forum from a competitor that may or may not be named, and may or may not even have a specific online offer, but our potential new client insists we should match the deal to earn their loyalty.

 

It’s not unheard of for someone to try and negotiate a deal, and sometimes people may bend the facts of a competing offer to see how far they can push  a discount or deal – after all we are living in a Black Friday ‘discount’ society now – year round bargains, and a good deal is front and center in just about any discussion between a customer and a business.  Deals are not just about TV’s and electronics any more – Cloud Services, IT Services, Internet Access – its more and more common to ask for a deal these days on everything,.

 

Sun Tzu’s ‘The Art of War’ suggests “Supreme excellence consists of breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.” – and closing a sale when a potential client looks to you to match their perception of a good deal can be a real battle.  When I see these types of requests I seize the opportunity to showcase what I’m bringing to the table, and that few if any other competitor can come close to the total value being proposed. When I hear a potential client asking if I can “match their price”, I focus on asking the potential client if their other offer can “match what our service provides”.

My response usually looks like this.

Thank you for considering TurnKey Internet’s Cloud Servers – and I appreciate the opportunity to help showcase why we are the best fit for your IT project needs. You asked if we could ‘match’ this other offer you referenced, and I wanted to first clarify to help ensure we are comparing apples to apples (or at least apples to another fruit!)

Does this other competitor offer and provide :

  • A money back guarantee, in writing – do they stand behind what they sell with a written policy?
  • A 100% Service Level Agreement (Uptime, Network, Security, and more) in writing to guarantee your business?
  • Do they Answer the phone – Pick up the phone right now, dial the phone number, does a real person talk to you within 60 seconds?
  • Do they use latest Cloud Technology (watch out for vendors offering cut-throat deals using insecure, or outdated technology like OpenVZ based Clouds).
  • Do they have 3rd party verified reviews about their product / offer or company – including BBB report cards, and public audit / certifications.
  • Do they own, operate, and maintain their own Datacenter, servers, stoarge systems, staff, and infrastructure – or are they just a wholesaler or middleman between you and the people who do the work?
  • Does their offer include Backups at no additional charge?
  • Do they offer free Cloud-Migration assistance ?

While I am not personally familiar with the competitor / offer you mentioned – can they match what TurnKey Internet is offering you in this proposal?  Can they match what we offer – and will they agree to match the quality, service and price that we are offering?  

I understand that you always want the highest confidence in the online partners you choose, and I assure you TurnKey Internet is committed to your online success in every way possible.  I assure you that once you add in the entire scope of our proposal you will see that the our price is not only the best, but the total proposal is the best fit for your long term Cloud Services needs.

 

While some potential sales negotiations can’t be swayed to avoid the ‘price match’ war, the ones who see the value are the clients that will be there for the long term when you deliver what you promise.  The key is to showcase what you bring to the table – that sets you apart from the competition.  For those who remain price fixated who may choose a different path they may still find their way back to you eventually thanks to leaving them with the positive aspects in mind.

The Cyber Monday Blues : Don’t Let Your IT or Web Site Let You Down   no comments

Posted at Dec 1, 2015 @ 3:11pm cloud

target_crash_cyber_monday_2015Black Friday is in the rear view mirror, and Cyber Monday is quickly passing by – did your web site survive the storm?  Both Target.com and Paypal.com experienced major outages for Cyber Monday this year.

Being prepared for large spikes in traffic is one thing, loosing sales and upsetting customers can have long term ramifications that can’t be easily fixed.  One of our own employees happened to be participating in this years land rush to Cyber Monday during his lunch break, placed an order online Target successfully only to get emailed hours later that the order had been cancelled due to availability sold out (After having accepted the order).  He was luckier than most, the site took his order online – but the end result the same as other angry Target.com shoppers yesterday – he was left out in the cold this winter shopping season.

 

Target’s response online twitter confirmed the issues, multiple site delays and crashes and mentioned this year’s traffic exceeding double the previous year’s as a cause (though online traffic reporting and analytics company’s Alexa.com and Netcraft.com could not confirm a double in volume or remotely close to that regarding Target.com).

It brings up a good lesson for any business to keep in mind.  Just what impact is there on your business if your web site or customer data, inventory, or ordering systems are inaccessible or worse, crash and loose data.  Do you have a business continuity plan and what is the financial loss (time, sales, and loss of good will for the future) mean to your business?

Just a couple of years ago around Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping season Target announced falling victim to millions of account’s being compromised including credit card information – among the worst hacking scandals of the last decade in the news.  Yet Target has survived and continues, but not all business are so lucky to survive major mis-steps like these and being un prepared or blind sided when their IT infrastructure is not adequately prepared.

Being prepared for the best (big volume spikes for the holiday shopping season) also means being prepared for the worst (outages, data loss, data corruption, and more).   Having your web site or IT infrastructure hosted in the cloud using a seasoned IT firm like TurnKey Internet can offer a safety net utilizing hardened technologies to provide the scallability and redundancy crucial for your business.

Also, consider having your corporate data, servers, and web sites mirrored into the Cloud with a service like TurnKey Vault – regardless if you are a Billion dollar retail chain, or a small business office – we all need continuous reliable access to our data to keep the lights on.

Proper planning can mean the difference of going out of business versus surviving in an unexpected crisis – not every business gets multiple strikes against them and lives to tell about it.    Don’t wait until next holiday season to evaluate your cloud-based infrastructure.
