How many clients do i need to make atleast k per month.
This is probably not a good idea (at all) unless you already have a client-base of people looking for web hosting services or you somehow cater to the industry (and have a reputation).
Check out the pricing on eBay for web hosting accounts – I just looked & saw an ad for 3 years of ‘unlimited’ web hosting for .95.
Reselling web hosting space is not easy (all support issues go to you until you can hire a proper tech) and it would be really, really difficult to pull a profit (let alone ,000/month) without a unique selling position and a large, already-established base of people interested in your services.
Now – I’m throwing something out here, but you may be able to fast-track your way into the business by an insane offer & excellent services… Setup a contest and give away something like a new car for an active customer at some point down the road. Something like this would likely get an immense amount of press (TV, radio, newspaper, online, etc) & you could bypass the need to advertise as it would be done for you. Obviously there are many different points that you’d need to address so that you didn’t come to financial ruin, but it’s an idea.
This gist of what I’m saying is this: short of already being in the industry, offering a unique twist to what current hosting accounts offer or stepping out on a dangerous limb to get attention – I don’t think this is a good idea for a business venture.
