    paid advertising ideas and suggestions

    I am just wondering, where else can I look to spending for advertising for hosting services?

    One forum that I advertise on now, is digitalpoint, and what I love is:
    - I can choose which countries view my ads
    - i can choose which threads on the forum my ad shows for.
    - i only pay based on impressions and clicks
    - can set max daily spends etc etc.

    Other forums and sites seem to have flat rate advertising, like namepros, $5k for 1 month for top spot... but my ad will only appeal to a small market segment (not everyone that visits the forum)

    I just want to know, does any other forum have something like this in place, where I can target my ads to my target country?

    And no... do not suggest adwords. I am pausing all my adwords campaigns for the time being.

    That really depends on what he is targeting. But yes I agree, WHT & FB are probably the best for advertising. I would pay attention to Google Adwords too. Staff. Shared Web Hosting | Reseller Web Hosting | IRCD Hosting | psyBNC/sBNC/eggdrop/znc Hosting

    Google AdWords
    Just for the amount of traffic
    And the way Google let's u manage keywords and campaign etc.
    U can be very specific or very general
    Wht is also a very good option as u directly target people related to hosting

    ...but Google Adwords can be quite expensive, especially if you have the wrong keywords. Facebook Ads, like many have said are probably your best bet.

    Look for smaller ad networks, especially those that offer CPA system, you can also join affiliate networks and let the affiliates do the advertising for you

    I suggest you try Google Adwords, as recently i found a coupon for $100 on online, of course i have spend $25, for that but that is for just to try out the system, and another where you will find right target audience is WHT.
