Ideas Wanted

 

Dear Eskimo North Customer,

This August, we have relatively few high dollar accounts up for
renewal, and this means I will likely encounter a revenue shortage unless
I can find ways to sell more service.

In the past I’ve come up with various ideas but they’ve largely
flopped. I had quite a few people ask about private virtual servers, so I
put in place the resources to provide them but so far have only sold six.

Our web server is one of relatively few capable of serving both
http1.1 and http2. Although modern debian claimed Linuxes included an
Apache module for this, the version of openssl included doesn’t have the
required capabilities. I’ve compiled a newer verison of openssl to make
this possible. This provides a speed advantage over other providers.

Google, when they index your pages, all other things being equal
pages that have both https and http2 are given higher priority, after that
speed counts.

Anyway, I am asking for ideas, either for new things you’d like that
we aren’t presently providing but could, or ways to sell more of our
existing services.

Please tell me what would incentivize you or people you know to
purchase additional services from us. Right now I have a surplus of host
CPU, memory, and disk that I’d like to find a use for.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Robert John Dinse
