    Thank you for the tips, @TIP!

    1. What apps/tools do you use for your suggestions #2, #3, #4, #5 and #9?
    2. In #8, if my math is correct, $2,400 ÷ 24 = $100/month (not $200) — which makes your suggestion even more attractive. We have found that most of our SMB clients will only redo their website every 3-4 years, which means that we could actually reduce the hosting costs even further if they were to signup upfront.
    3. Could you expand on #10? Do you mean that we could setup something like an 'affiliate' program? If so, how would you go about setting it up - i.e, which apps/tools to use, and how do you work it with the client?
