By far.. Posting in hosting forums and word-of-mouth advertising by existing clients. Simply provide top-notch service and customer support and the rest will fall in place.

As others have said, forums and social media primarily. We send the occasional email to web development company's local to where our business is established offering them competitive web hosting plans for their clients (many local web development businesses to us seem buy hosting through different providers, they don't have their own servers).

Hi,

1. Technical Forums : Where you show your technical skills.
2. Social Forums : Where you advertise your services.
3. Online marketing and interaction.
4. Chain marketing (one satisfied client to other).
5. Online advertising agencies.
6. SEO (Make this the priority). Product listing on the top of the search engine.

Why do you think so? Please, share your ideas with us. Or is this just another one liner to increase post count?

Forums did not give us any significant increase in traffic. We run accounts on many forums, made several useful contacts with real professionals, got several clients and made quite a bit of money due to their orders - but this all is just about 3% of our monthly income and forum posting did not increase this sum greatly. Feel free to try if you wish - but don't expect wonders, please.

Hi,

The forums are most effective because you share your technical expertise, which is the foremost requirement of any clients and is the most important aspect of attracting the client to you.

Forums are obviously a great way to advertise, I would say good PR and a lot of noise and social media could also help. Having articles written about your company is probably the best way to get the word out-both in terms of SEO & marketing.

If your on a tight budget, do not waste your time with banner ads

to me forum promotion is the most effective for hosting services because you get your products infront of your targeted audience.
