    How would you find out about hosting yourself if you needed it? That might be one place to start.

    I'm not marketing anything, just curious as to what most people do, and how they go about doing it.

    most hosting companies use traditional methods such as

    - PPC programs including Yahoo & Adwords.
    - SEO
    - Banner advertising
    - Text link advertising (sometimes in connection with an SEO campaign)
    - Popunder traffic
    - Expired Domain Traffic
    - WHT signature ads (sometimes called forum seeding)
    - Guerilla marketing such as a cihost.com paying the general public to tattoo the companies logo on fists and one case I read about the guy shaved his head with a big cihost logo.

    There loads more but I need caffeine... bye for now..

    This brings your product directly to the target customer. Of course, this is in conjunction with those methods mentioned above.

    I though directly suggesting your service in anything but the advertising frourms on WHT was against the rules?

    If you were responding to my post, I didn't mean here. Obviously, posting requests here is against the rules. Other forums allow it, though.

    My mistake, Guess I was getting a bit of tunnel vision when it comes to this forum. Seem to spend more time on here than sleeping these days

    WOW I never thought of getting a tatoo with my company logo on it. Although man I wonder how much revenue you could actually bring in by doing that (ROI).
