Five Roadblocks to Hosting Partnerships Every week or two I get on a Clarity call with a product company that is sure they’re a perfect match for a particular (or any) hosting company. On most of my calls they want advice on approaching these hosting companies. Sometimes they want me to do the introductions for them – as they’re not known, and I have good relationships with several hosting companies. Of course, from the more than 100 requests to be introduced to a host, I have only ever introduced 3 or 4 products to a hosting company. That’s a 3-4% rate, which is pretty small.
