However, starting any business has never been easy. With hard work and dedication being a web reseller can be a profitable business.
Optimize your website so that it will stand out among the other hosting companies by submitting it to directories; add keyword rich content and blogs, SEO, PPC and social networking. If your website is popular and visible to internet users, you will be able to build a larger and more solid customer base. SEO is very important; ranking high ‘organically’ on Google with keyword rich content it the best way to gain long term exposure.
After you have optimized your website, you should give it at least 3 to 6 months before you decide whether or not it is profitable. Many websites can take up to a year before they become profitable.
