In the early game, mercenary crossbowmen dominates all other ranged units, whether they are bow or crossbow. So it's more of a question if you want to afford them more not.
Personally, I think the most worthwhile bow/crossbow units are ones who are dual-use (good in both melee and ranged). They are:
Byzantine Guard archers
These are also decent because they are easy to train:
Mongol Infantry (Teutonic campaign)
