We've never really advertised (apart from the odd banner ad that we've got in exchange for hosting - no results there though) - all sales come from referrals. Like they say - keep a client happy and they might recommend you but give someone really poor service and on average they will tell 8 people to steer clear".
Cheers

Like Mark said, my biggest return has been the client referrals. In fact, thats the only return that I've got.

Keep 'em happy!

We're advertising in a few places. I think once our new site is up, we'll do it more so.

Back to current advertising though, we've done a few campaigns on adwords, we've got a few banners / buttons on web design / programming sites, and we're going to do a sticky on WHT soon.

i would agree with referals. I dont have too many customers yet, but the ones i have tell their friends about it, and i keep getting numerous people contacting me, so and so's refered me. As long as they are happy, their going to tell their friends. Word of mouth is a very strong.
