you need to work out a good offer to attract the first batch of customer. after u have the promotion plan, write to forums where have hosting offers. and talk to customer/people of what you offering.

keep up a good track record. in 6 mth time, or a yr, you will be up on track.

I second the local advertising, this has turned out to a be a good way to really get your name out for a much lower cost and still get business.

Adwords can get expensive, choose your keywords wisely a lot of the generic keywords are quite high but there are still some that can be had for a decent price if you get creative enough

Heres a tip i use.

Look at your competitors link on google to see where they have adverts and links to their site.

Simply type the following into google:

url:http://competitors website address here

Now that you can see where your competitors advertise, why not do the same.

Good luck

As you may have hundreds of competition if you advertise your webhosting services online, you may want to do a little off line advertising.

If you decide to compete online, you can really have something different to offer for your customers. For instance offer them a free service like customizing their websites (from web templates) for them. Strengthen your web presence by submitting to article directories, forums, and web directories. A SEO-optimized site would also help.

Making your own company sometimes is not that easy. The most difficult thing is advertise your website correctly without brake any rule. Make sure you google some forums first that allow you to post your link, then make sure you have some good banners or website description where people can understand why your company is better than the others. Try to digg some good articles pointing to your company. Also you can use StumbleUpon as some help.

We did a test run with Adwords using a £30 voucher. It does help with traffic but its mainly bots and before you know it £30 turns to £0

£30 is nothing I'm afraid. It would be very difficult to run any conclusive tests with that amount.

Getting the first set of clients is the most important thing in any business and Hosting business is not an exemption from that. Try try try and never give up. The best idea is going for adwords from google, but you need money for that. If you have enough money go for that. Or else there are number of social networking sites and there are also number of forums, completely dedicated for hosting, go and buy a signature in that.
