Attempt to target niche markets with SEO, for example specific keywords - relying to an Operating System (Linux / Windows) + something like 'Cheap/High Availability/1GBps/DDOS Protected/Other relevant keyword' as they are easier to rank up on search engines.
As mentioned in the thread, articles are also a very good way to increase your SEO, with unique content and relevant information.
Make sure you get familiar with all relevant forums, and build a good profile.
Some forums that may be relevant:
Cheap Offers - Lowendtalk
General Offers - WHT Forums, HostingDiscussion, for VPS - VPSBoard.
Gaming forums - Minecraft, RSPS, etc.
Other good methods of getting traffic would also be reviews as mentioned.
Another good way to attract clients is to offer functionality that competitors don't have, this may include things like utilizing Cloud Platforms to offer High Availability, Platform as a Service, Hourly Billing.
Hourly Billing is useful in itself as it allows customers to test out VM's without losing much credit, for example to test performance, network, compatibility - etc.
