I don't like facebook ads too as I personally found it's not that effective. So far forum market place is the best for free ads, google ads is good too but kinda expensive.

I'm thinking what about the directory listing, they are paid and free listing and does anyone experience it before and how efficient it can be?

Some are actually effective BUT in our case we have found forums related to our business to be the most effective. Being helpful to forum members pays off in folds

We had no positive experience with marketing on Facebook - regarding webhosting / server / colocation.

On the other side we have customers which are really successfull providing products for leisure at Facebook.

I think it depends on the kind of customer you want to acquire.

Facebook ads are useless unless you are planning to create a brand where you can get the maximum eyeballs.But in terms of ROI ,it is not good platform.

Like most, we use a combination of free and non-free advertising methods. However, there really isn't any truly free advertising since you are investing your time, which inevitably translates into money. Word of mouth, email and banner ad campaigns/promotions, social networks are of the most consistent for us.

By the way guys, is partnering with affiliate networks worth it? Coz I have had an experience but end up pulling out since it is costly and does not give enough sales and ROI

Directory listing can help, you should try social media (youtube,linkedin,forums,twitter,facebook) and create great quality marketing content.
Use free and paid ads option.

Do forum posting related to your work, grow your twitter followers as well as g+ followers. Do some classifieds as well.

Won't help you mate. Google penalized a lot of websites that got backlinks for web directories. Sure the paid ones may help a little but I still think its a waist of money overall.

Why not try facebook and twitter advertising. They are proven to be very effective.

You still made out if you think about it and as long as that customer stays with you. Many hosting companies will offer one year free hosting to gain customers. The first year is obviously a loss but then as long as you retain that customer you will have them for years to come. That's pretty much the nature of the beast in our present day market.

I second this, free forum ads posting works good.
