If you’ve read our previous couple of blog posts, we have provided you with free monitoring tools and analytics applications to help you properly organize, aggregate, and evaluate your social media accounts and level of influence over your peers. However, we have yet to explain how to increase your influence within your multiple networking accounts.
Have you been wondering how effective your social media marketing is?
One thing that businesses, organizations, or even personal networkers look for in all types of social media is the amount of traffic and level of influence you have over your audience. Imagine an analytics tool that takes things like perception, engagement, feedback, and sentiment from your social media audience, and pulls out numbers from these to quantify beneficial results.
Today we would like to announce the official launch of our Affiliate Referral program. We have been receiving requests for this for a number of years and we are now happy to announce that the program is now live.
If you want to skip this post and jump right into it you can access the Affiliate section in your Core account at the following URL: https://core.hostdime.com/account/referrals/
For those that would like to learn more about what exactly our Affiliate Program is, read on!

Are you currently on a shared or VPS server and thinking about upgrading to a dedicated server, but you’re not sure if it’s right for you? Now is the time to upgrade! For a lot of people, upgrading to a dedicated server can greatly improve their hosting experience.
The HostDime Marketing Team has spent several months researching, testing, and using various tools for social media monitoring, aggregation, and response. We’ve come to the conclusion that monitoring tools help brand and market your company/website and can help identify quality control or customer complaints that have gone unnoticed. We chose 4 different Monitoring Tools to analyze, and decided on specific pros and cons for each:
Here at HostDime, we know that you have a website because you have something you want to tell the world, be it your opinions or your products and services. Just having a website with that information is not very helpful if you can’t get people to actually visit it. These days businesses are learning the importance of being found online and how much of an increase in business the online exposure can bring. You’ve taken the first steps in building your website and hosting it with HostDime, but that doesn’t mean potential customers will find your site naturally (natural is organic discovery search and not paid targeted ads). To help solve this issue we have started writing a series of blogs focused on offering different free marketing tools and strategies that are out there for you to use. You will be able to find all of them in the “Marketing” category on our blog.
Let the games begin! As you may already know, HostDime is now holding a “Where’s Alex?” contest in order to win HostDime’s cherished mascot, HD Alex! We’re looking forward to find out how well you can pin-point the location (Landmark and City) of HostDime’s Alex! We have recently updated the rules for our “Where’s Alex?” contest. Therefore, in order to participate, you will need to follow the instructions below:
Imagine when company URLs will add their brand names as the web domain suffix – .pepsi, .apple, .google, etc. – instead of the 22 current generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs): .com, .org, .net, etc.
HostDime has been looking for ways to organize our multiple online profiles scattered across various services, including our Blog, Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr, and Twitter. You probably understand how difficult it is to keep an eye on each of your several accounts on the internet. One of our social media goals was to find an online service that will solve our problem by pulling all of this information together to build a single online identity. Think of it as an ‘eBusiness Card’ that will inform your visitors about you within a short summary and also link them to every network that person is connected to online.
HostDime is currently holding a “Where’s Alex?” contest involving our cherished HD Alex. We will provide the winner with their very own personal HD Alex Toy delivered to their front door, free of charge.
In today’s society, social media marketing allows small businesses to always be accessible to their customers and also increases the traffic to your site by pinpointing your industry’s influencers and target market. A new survey by Constant Contact reports that 73% of small and mid-sized businesses are using social media as a main promotional tool. However, many unfamiliar business leaders have made mistakes within their web marketing program that can reveal their lack of social media savvy and often negate the effectiveness of those marketing efforts.
