Traffic Sources for Amazing Web Hosting Offers?

I have a web hosting offer from my company which in limited test marketing to a really OLD list converted over 86% of all clicks to sales.

Now I would like to use some traffic sources, web, email, offline marketing, etc. to generate additional sales and to test our marketing before we ramp up and launch our 3x12 expanding forced network affiliate program and so we have real world numbers to show our affiliates when we launch the program.

Of course the conversions are really high right now as I am running a $200 off coupon for our enterprise shared hosting for life plan, currently selling at $299.

This was just giving out a coupon code in the email, now I have switched to making the coupon code hidden until the visitor shares our page with a like, tweet or G+... conversions should still be high and with the added benefit of sharing to visitor friends gaining more over any losses due to users not wanting to complete the

I also need to see what the conversions will be on our other offers on our shared and VPS plans so we can quote some realistic conversions on our company provided landing pages, etc.

Of course I would always like to find traffic sources which are not going to cost a ton of $$$, however if the conversions stay high on this offer and subsequent offers, paying more really won't be an issue.

Now, I know hosting is a highly saturated marketplace, I've got a niche to market and will be retaining clients at a much higher level

I'd love pointers to some highly targeted traffic from email campaigns and other traffic methods which I can plug into.


Thanks!

        OK, that is a super awesome recommendation! Thank you so much!


        BTW, just used Buzzcity PPC, actually got a sale fairly quickly... screwed up on my campaign settings and blew a ton of cash in Pakistan and India... lol. I'd love to sell there but they are not my target market... anyway, forgot to set my country settings for the marketing and so was blowing money world wide for awhile...

        Anyway, after tweaking, within 30 minutes had a sale... now looking for that cookie cutter repeat success... I have no problem spending $50 to make a sale when it means $900 a year in residual profit after expenses!

        I will take a look at leadserve and see what the results are, thanks again.

    You could contact some web design companies to see if they are interested in reffering people to your host...

      Great ideas! Thanks!

      BTW, I'm a little bummed with 'Buzz City' marketing... wow, for example 375+ clicks on my $99 hosting for life ad... ZERO conversions...

      I'm thinking bogus click thru numbers are being given, I will have to check my traffic logs to verify, but there is NO WAY over 375 visitors clicking on an ad for $99 hosting 4 life doesn't convert at least ONE sale...

      I did WAY better at over 85%+ on conversions to an old email list...

      I'm not going to give a final ruling on Buzz City for marketing yet as I will run more campaigns and tweak things to see if I can get better than horrible results... lol.

    Follow up, looking at my traffic logs and I so far cannot find a single visitor from Buzz City mobile marketing to my site... amazing... yet they eat up your clicks in just a few hours.

    I should be able to see the traffic in my logs, correct? rhetorical question...lol
