Proposal: Cloudron should establish a VPN (Virtual Private Network) service and partner with some hosting companies to provide the service.
Newbies could download a client from Cloudron, provide credentials and connect to the VPN. Other options could launch an interface for the Cloudron website/Application store.
Very many people these days pay an annual subscription to have a VPS in order to provide themselves some anonymity on the internet and improved security when online.
I think VPN subscribers would be an excellent market segment to target for Cloudron, as such people already are quite familiar with technology and often might be using services that Cloudron provide too, for example "Simple Torrent" or "Transmission".
People might say to themselves, I am paying for a VPN anyway, why not pay Cloudron for one, and have all the benefits of the Cloudron App Store too. (There could be two prices: a lower one for just the VPN, and a higher one for the VPN + Cloudron App Store.)
People often ask about and mention VPNs and they are far more a part of the public consciousness than Cloudron.
Hopefully, an increased number of users would better fund Cloudron and could even be used to lower prices. Cloudron might benefit from an influx of knowledgeable developers too.
