I'm talking about places like HostVoice (you can buy leads) and other forums.

Does anyone have experience with DigitalPoint? What about the warrior forums? What about BlackHatWorld? These are all webmaster forums, so I'd be interested to see what your thoughts are on them.
Beside forum consider making an affiliate program for your product. This way you will leave others to find clients for you.
Not so easy as written here but is a good shot.

Making a unique product that customer wants, is that really counts. To gaining customers is not a easy task, trying things like social media (facebook, twitter, google+, reddit etc) help. Posting on forums help aswell. If you want to pay for traffic then i would go for buysellads or adwords. Make sure that your offering is unique and customers could magically turn heads and look at your product however you must be really lucky. Hope this helped, never give up and good luck

I would suggest to be a forum lover... it a good place to get knowledge and share as well ... you could also use the market place to discuss your adv.

Breaking into the web hosting business is hard, especially with the market being as saturated as it is. My company has yet to use things like Google AdSense, but we started out as a Game Server hosting company and eventually added on VPS hosting. The kinds of advertising we've done has been mainly forum posting and word of mouth. As a game server provider, getting involved with sponsoring events and servers (which cost practically nothing to do) for events is a good way to promote our other services as well.

somehow you can contact blogger to share your products. It will help some orders too.

Really word of mouth is king imo, specialised forums are great too. Google AdWords is really expensive when you start to advertise and ROI is really low.

Marketing really starts with selecting your target market. From there you can develop a marketing campaign developed to appeal to that target market.

Blindly blasting out ad campaigns is a waste of money really.

^This. If you have no recommendations, reviews etc, not many people are going to buy.

We have many clients which are actually buying more of our stuff. That means we're doing something right Good support is always a big plus.

We use (and we detect a huge difference if we don't use it) Google Adwords (good 'configuration' suggested )and some principal social networks (FB, Twitter, G+ and Linkedin).

For companies with a good number of customers, the 'word of mouth will work like a charm if you have a nice support

Besides forums, niche sites are wonderful. For example, I own the bottom exclusively to likevisits.com which brings new clients daily.
