Introduction time: this is my first post here. I've been reading for a while and I'm fairly new to the IM space (about one year). I started doing some PPC-based direct linking affiliate marketing and made a few grand last year .. but more importantly learned a TON. I am huge on sharing knowledge so I'll actively contribute to this community when I can, and I hope you guys are a bit patient with newbies like me. My first product is going to launch soon, and it took me nearly a year to develop into it's full glory. I'll reveal more in due course (I intend to put it on clickbank but no rush).
So my main question is this: I plan to launch my audio book shortly. I will do a combination of SEO and PPC. I have recently purchased Stompernet's STSE2 and PPC Classroom. I am thinking big here, not small. I want to be able to handle several sales per day of my product, not several per month.
I'm currently using Bluehost. They are great but I'm very well aware that "unlimited bandwidth" is a bunch of BS. So, should I worry that Bluehost may not be able to handle the load of several customers per day at 200 MB per shot, or will I be ok?
I'm not going to be cheap. If it costs me $99 per month to get a proper host I'll do that. But for now I'm focussed on execution and getting this product on the market. Then I can make all the smaller changes I need to make to improve conversion, build my list, and handle more traffic. But do I need to worry early on?
Lastly ... I'm planning to buy and install DLGuard this week. If I do this today and on my Bluehost server .. would I be able to use DLGuard to handle delivery from a different server? In other words, say I keep the site on Bluehost and that site only has to deal with traffic on my sales letter. But then I could have my files on a separate server (hopefully) so that the real bandwidth hogging portion of the business is not handled by Bluehost. Make sense? Can DLGuard handle this kind of implementation?
Thanks for any advice, and I look forward to contributing here.
