I will be the first to admit that I’ve had a long and not so happy experience of dealing with a variety of web hosting companies in my life. And what I’ve learned the hard way is that you pay for what you get and when you try to go cheap, you will have problems!
So during a recent outage of my past web hosting company (this company is huge by the way) I decided to perform what I called: the Social Customer Service Experiment which involved me trying to get support during the outage through a variety of their different support channels. Initial and follow up response times have been documented and put into the below infographic.
The clear winner for me by far, with the fastest and most up to date information was the support I received through Twitter! Hope you enjoy!

We look forward to your feedback as you use Cayzu Help Desk v2.2.1!
At Cayzu, we understand what it’s like to start a new business. Personally, I often think of small businesses as fish in a pond full of hooks. Numerous service providers and vendors will to hook you with a free product, reel you in, club you over the head, and fry your lifeless business in a pan. Suddenly, you’re the catch of the day.
We don’t work like that at Cayzu. That is why we offer our SOLO plan, which is free forever for up to 3 agents. No strings, lines, or hooks attached. We’ve been there, and we know what it’s like to need a break. We do not only provide free help desk software to small businesses, we provide the best help desk software.
Are All Entrepreneurs Crazy or is it Just Us?
All entrepreneurs are probably as crazy as we are at Cayzu. We’ve been exactly where you are today, and we get it. You have a tight budget, but you don’t want to get the raw end of the deal in the long-run. It would be great if you could get what you needed free of charge to start building your brand. You would love to have access to things that make your life easier and your customers happier, but it’s not in the budget. Think about how much the following would benefit your business:
- Free support software with automated rules and SLA
- An online branded knowledge base portal that’s open 24/7
- An indexed search feature that allows agents to find what they need quickly
- A fully functional ticketing system
- And much more
We know that you have to fake it until you make it. You have to do everything you can to look professional from day one. After all, many startups get caught in a Catch-22. Often, people want to do business with an existing enterprise to mitigate risk. Any small discrepancy with a startup can arouse suspicion from a savvy target audience. We want your business to thrive, and we offer all of the above features free of charge.
Free? There Has to Be a Catch
When we say free, we mean it. There is no catch. We will not take our help desk software back out of the blue. We will not have fees associated with continual use of our free help desk software. We will not request your first born if you continue to use our software. Over 10 years of research and development have allowed us to create the kind of help desk software we are proud to give to business owners who are just getting started, just like you.
We Want Your Small Business to Succeed
We’re not giving away the best help desk software just because we can. At Cayzu, we believe in the entrepreneurial spirit. We want to help your business thrive because we believe that the little guy should be given a chance. After all, we were exactly where you are today at one point in time. Take your business to the next tier with free help desk software by Cayzu.
