Word of mouth.
It is by far the best way in my experience.
Offer a good service, and eventually people will recommend you.

Even better if they're on Twitter and Facebook. That'll get you huge exposure to their followers.

Apart from that, forums and graphical advertisements on said forums.

There is a lot of good information here. I've gotten most of my clients simply by talking to people. Sometimes they show up in a few weeks, sometimes in a couple years. It just depends on when they need your service and if they like you. Where ever I go I try to be friendly to people and since having a web hosting company it pays off. The way you present yourself to people is your best advertisement.

Posting on Forums gets you the maximum sales

If your service is good, then it leads to word of mouth promotion.

Social media generates lot of traffic though, but never got a sale so far.

Not generally, it really depends on the marketing budget. A host for example can run a huge sale and market off of forums (offline, affiliates, YouTube, FaceBook etc) generating a huge number of sales - costing a lot of money in the process.

I do agree that when just starting out, forums can be very powerful. But, it is generally good to have a few clients already and some testimonials to back your adverts in forum threads so offline marketing to start with is probably the best bet.

It seems strange to me that potential clients should give any credence to testimonials displayed on a web host site. Where, in your opinion, are testimonials best sought/placed?

Fake testimonials are everywhere, myself personally would only trust a review for a web host if it is backed by the domain name. That way you can check the site out, check the speeds, check where it is actually hosting etc

You can gather and place testimonials all around your website. We have some with a sliding effect on our homepage, on software landing pages and a main reviews/survey page.

We then use these testimonials (all backed with domain URLs) in our advertisement threads.

Hosting forums and word of mouth. A happy client will recommend their services to others.
Also reply to other people's topics on forums and assist them with problems they are having. This tells people you are knowledgeable and are able to assist with problems.

This.

You need to know people that work closely with your target audience that can recommend your product. Everything else you do should simply be a build-up towards this.
