This is a business slogan, you can see it here: http://webhost.pro

"More power means more customers"

As a slogan should it have a , in it like this:

"More power, means more customers."

I feel like there should be a small pause after power.

Thanks!

It's grammatical without the comma.

With the comma it's ungrammatical because you're creating two dependent clauses. With the comma you'd need to write something like, "more power, it means more customers."

For emphasis you can use italics, "more power means more customers."

True, Blue

Again, true, Blue, at least technically. However it's done hundreds of thousands of tines a day by many whom you at least believe should know better

@dalehileman,
The rule as I remember it from my spent youth, "You can use a comma anywhere you think a slight pause is needed"
