What I've noticed is that usually half way into the decade or so, a new wave of opportunity starts to emerge. We have to constantly watch our industry, looking for these waves. If we can then get in and exploit the market as much as possible, before it becomes saturated, we will have enough momentum to "ride it out" into the next decade.
Always vigilant, we should constantly be thinking about such trends and keeping a close eye on new opportunities. Depending on the situation, one can either create new advancements, which will create totally new markets and/or innovate a current market to create new waves of opportunity.
In addition to changing web hosts, we also change our website software to IPS Community Suite 4. After playing around with it for a few weeks, I was very impressed by the integrated applications and community support. It has all the features out of the box needed to run the business with. We will be taking advantage of all the integrated features including forums, store, blogging and much more. The site is working now, but features are still being implemented and will continue to rollout over the coming weeks/months.
We recently moved to a new web hosting company. This move allows for the monthly hosting cost to be significantly reduced, less manual maintenance and greater overall stability and support.
At first I was a little hesitant to move, mainly because I had spent so much time learning the ins and out of Linux hosting enough to manage a dedicated server. I had gotten used to just doing it all myself. But you get to a point where you have to step back and evaluate your current situation. I saw that I had too many "irons in the fire" as they say (a common thing, however when you're an indie developer). So I went on this quest to simplify things and focus on what's most important for the moment.
Trimming the monthly hosting burn and just making it all simpler so I can focus on game development rather than constantly dealing with server issues. So that is done now and hopefully it will be smooth sailing for the coming months.
