Word of mouth
Direct emailing (not spam) of current and past customers
These are just some ideas besides social media and forum ads

I have a couple of friends that are resellers of web hosting services and they have told me that they do well by advertising using Google AdWords as well as Bing ads.
They also put up banner ads in forums that have members of their target audience and do well using this to gain clients/customers.

Currently, we advertise our business by local relations. We recruit sales operator which has good relations with enterprise owner, politicians, and other persons which may need to make (or host) websites.

The lower cost of Bing can also be used to target more keywords for the same amount of money as on Google for less keywords.

But that does not answer OP's question so here's a tip. Look out for businesses or non profits whose websites doesn't look that great. Most people who's starting their hosting company have technical skills and free time but no customers so do some free work, improved their website for free but offer paid hosting, with special discounts. This goes a long way towards building good will and some word of mouth marketing, and you can still do this all online. Just make sure your sales pitch emails doesn't look too spammy though. Make it personal.
