f the business is at it's starting stage then you can advertise it locally using the local medium. It can be advertising channels, mouth to mouth marketing.

As stated previously, social media is the best advertising medium as there are number of users online 24 hours. You can start posting on the pages related to your business to attract the co-related followers.

Facebook, Instagram are the best solutions. Make sure you have the best graphics and text for the online marketing.

When business will be well established then you can sign-up for the paid service of advertisement. There is pay per click charges of those services, you can sing-up to those services.

You can use the blogs for advertising. There are various professional adverting services too which will attract the genuine users.

I would suggest below points for advertise the hosting company -

  1. Add the comments section in your website so all your current customers can give the review on it which is publically visible.
  2. Social media - It is best option now a days because all people are 24 hours online on it. Always post the new offers, new services which you are launching.
  3. Mouth advertise - You can ask your current customers to provide the reviews to other interested people who would like to sign-up for hosting service. You can ask your friends for providing the information about your websites.
  4. Google ad-wards - You can sign-up for Google adwards to display your hosting service advertisement.
  5. Local advertisement channels - You can use this medium too for advertising.

Paid: i am already try paid advertising and invest $150 and get only 5 - 10 click :(

but Free Advertising is good, Search in google "Free Classified" and submit your classifieds in all free sites.

- Blog Commenting
- Forum Posting,Reply,etc
- Advertise on your own other sites
- Free Classifieds
- Free URL Submission

Cheap Paid Advertisements:
- Business Listening in Yellow Pages
- Hosting Directory(Costly)
- Buy Links
- PPC Advertising, Page Impression
- Hire someone for posting your advertise in free sites. :)

Word of Mouth
While you can blab all you want about your business, people will listen only if other customers talk. So encourage them to spread the word about your business, if they are happy with your services and products. When people listen to reviews of fellow customers, they feel that they can trust the business better. A small trick here is to hire a 'talker' who will pretend to be your customer – for a fee – and talk about your business to prospective customer and talk at length about the awesomeness that your business is.

I do not agree with you. Free advertising is not as effective as paying. For example, if you sell using Facebook, otherwise paid advertising will be difficult to reach potential customers. This will take a lot of development opportunities of the business.

So, combine paid and free ads appropriately. Calculate budget for advertising in a reasonable way.

Both free and paid advertisement is useful post brand awareness. For free techniques go with SEO, SMM, SMO and for paid go with PPC and google adwords. Both the techniques can get your site a better search engine ranking by boosting traffic to site.

Rahul Vaghasia answered 10 years ago
Rahul Vaghasia answered 10 years ago

Both the ways have their own pros & cons.

In the paid advertisements, sometime returns are much much lower compared to the cost of advertisement. For example, a banner on a well known hosting directory in a particular category will cost you $400 to $500 a month ... and returns are not that high :(

Free advertisements are much cheaper, but it is hard to find a good traffic using it. Or you need to do really hard work to have very good traffic.

The most cost effective method is probably SEO - generating your traffic through organic search.
In the web hosting business, you probably shouldn't go for PPC because the leads are very expensive. It could go up to $20-30 per lead which is really not worth the investment.
