BuyVM Blackfriday deals announced

@gapper said:
i think for blackfriday fran should offer 15% off recurring for yearly payments on any plan

Not on any plan, but I got some ideas for black friday :) We'll do something this year. It won't be tons of stock, but it'll be fun.

Francisco

It looks like BuyVM will introduce dedicated servers because Fran said that he has got some ideas for BF but not related to any plan (VPS).

I think this is the first time ever they will do a BF deal, I'm excited.

    Please don't do that.

    I'm not getting into the dedicated server market, it's cut throat.

    The deals won't be on anything ryzen based.

    Ok... What are you releasing for us?

    I know that Fran has a "cult" here, but please, this is too much.

    No, buyshared is done as a product offering.

    We stopped selling new plans as of February.

    We aren't forcing anyone off, but we'll probably offer some sweet deals to people to get them to move to VPS (50% off on some E5 based nodes?). We have the nodes spare so I think it'd be a nice use for it.

    Past that we aren't going to force anyone to leave. We'll be taking away IP's in time, likely this year, but the need for dedicated IP's is long gone with us offering Mailchannels and the likes.

  • Would you mind to comment on why you stopped buyshared? Is it because of lack of demand? Low margins? Issues?

  • Lifetime VPS deals!

  • gappergapper Member

    If you are going to offer discounted VPS for current BuyShared resellers then please try to offer only dedicated CPU plans otherwise it would not work.

    For example a dedicated thread of an E5 with 3GB of RAM for $7/mo would be awesome.

    It accounts for 80% of our tickets while pulling in low single digit revenue.

    This is basically why we'd do it with our older E5's that I have sitting around. We got some of the gear in the Anynode customer transfer so at this point it's just sitting in a stack in my cage.

    We'd probably want to do something right around the price you mentioned.

    Users would get the plan only as an exchange out for their reseller.

    That's shared hosting in a nutshell.

    The original goal of BuyShared was to see people slowly float up into meaty VPS plans. Managed plans, a bit more pay, etc.

    Instead it just turned into people buying more and more of the $2/month resellers and just spreading out there.

    This is awesome man! Is this something that would have to wait until BF or perhaps in a few weeks you would mass email current resellers with an offer?

    We had a meeting about it this week.

    We'll see what happens :) I'd like to do something sooner rather than later.

    Maybe BuyShared 2.0? HostFran.com is available to register, it was dropped 14 days ago. I'm aware that it's not that great of a business idea, I just saw the domain name and had to make some post about it

    that's great. But sadly their normal stock ends quite quickly on regular basis due to the popularity so do the deals will end.. in few seconds to minutes, something like flash-sales :-)

    Just close this thread. The thread title is "Fake News". @FAT32

  • On august he said that he was planning something for this black friday. It is not fake news.

  • @Francisco, just wondering, wouldn't it make sense to offer something right not to resellers before they signup with other hosts on BF and move on?
