Why Your Online Backup Service is Worth More than $5/month.
New Online Backup Service Providers are often apprehensive about going into business because they think their business customers will balk at paying $89/month when they see ads for $5/month services. The Online Backup Guide for Service Providers is a complete 196-page guide on starting and operating an Online Backup Service – the latest revision of Rob Cosgrove’s industry defining RBS Book originally published in 1987. The entire book is being published here, chapter by chapter.
Here are some reasons your service is better.

$5/month Services are designed and intended only for the Personal market. They even say so in their Terms of Service. The software they use does not have the power, flexibility, and features required for business data.
Because business files are usually far more valuable than personal files, the Online Backup Services don’t want the liability of businesses using their services. If they have a business service, they charge far more for it to cover their liability.
Businesses require a higher level skill set in their Service Provider. They need more attention and expertise, and faster response time. They want to pick up the phone and talk to a live person immediately. They will not get that for $5/month.
