    Marketing a free hosting site

    Could you suggest me ways to market a free hosting site. It is very competetive and saturated niche, but i think if i make a huge marketing campaign i might still squeeze in. What do you think?

    In my opinion you first of all have to promote your hosting in forums, there are lots of listings and forums where people like you trying to give free host and if you can give something that users want you will be successful, mostly like ads free hosting (like me) also try to attract with big space or bandwidth

    Use social networking services, forums and discussion threads to get more and more traffic. If they like your stuff, they will link to you.

    I agree to the colleague that one of the best ways to promote your free hosting services is posting in forums related to your services. And remember, that your services could work as a promotion tool(the better services you provide, the more known they are).

    Forums are the best place to start with people looking for free hosting, also bookmarking sites like digg and stuff like that, also blog posts, and make some landing pages.

    When you are having a free hosting site, its better to have some thing in the other way, like try to be funky etc. which can get a good promotion with people talking about it and mentioning about it in their sites and blogs.

    Yes its free but the design can be tweaked in such a way as to make it look funny and share-worthy. Also other ways of promotion would be putting it in signature links while posting in hosting forums, or also getting posted about it in blogs etc.
    Social bookmarking can help but not to that extent.
