Or if you are just starting out - focus on your local market.

If you offer web design - you can upsell them on a new design and get a hosting client out of it for the long term.

Just my two cents.
I absolutely agree with coloAZ about marketing to your local community, especially newly registered companies. This plays into know, like and trust favorably.
