    Hey all i've just started work for a company that sells dedicated high speed acces (DSL and up) as well as collocation and dedicated server solutions.

    My job is a sales rep and i was wondering about e-marketing. IE what kinds of things do you do on a limited budget etc. to gather up hosting clients etc?

    something i'm looking for are:

    sites that post open bids for service etc.
    other sites to "hangout at"

    etc...

    anything would be great..

    To get clients I usually post at message boards like SitePoint and offer my help. Usually people like hosts/providers who do that. Some other message boards include TWF (www.webmaster-forums.com), Web Hosting Talk Forums (www.webhostingtalk.com), etc... There was a whole thread about message board people visit other then SitePoint (called "Life Outside of SitePoint" or something).

    Another thing to consider is partnering with design companies and other companies who's customers might want what you're offering.

    Writing articles is always a good idea. And I am not just talking about on the web but on local newspapers etc.
