    posting in the wrong forums definitely isn't the best way.....

    ...but do a search as this question was asked not to long ago...

    local advertising
    meta tags
    paid online advertising
    word of mouth...

    ...just to name a few

    Argh...we just got bitten by one (recommended) online ad agency. I'm giving them the chance to make things good before considering our options. We were racking up hits and not receiving that traffic at all. We'll have to be more careful where we spend our money in future.

    Cheers

    very true, i got ripped by hostpr -

    you have to look for cost effective targeted advertising and you should try to get a CTR of about 0.1% or higher, anything lower than that and you probably won't get many leads

    This was an ad clicks program, with x amount of unique clicks. I figured since it was recommended, we'd give it a go. Found some hits and tested one of the referrers. Refreshed the casino page until our ad appeared, and it required that the browser click and visit our site to win a free game back in the casino. The click registered a split-second hit and then a redirect back to the casino playing page. Not a single page loaded from our site. Very disappointed. :-)

    How about something like this:

    You find a local design company, you call them and propose the following - you'll sent them your clients which are interested in web hosting and in return, they will allow you to host their clients on your server. Everybody wins.
