29. Attend Networking Events
This is one of the most effective ways to get new local business but is often overlooked. Speed networking and other meet-ups of local businesses and entrepreneurs have become common in most cities today. This can be very effective to get extra exposure for your business and to attract local clients, particularly if you offer products or services that also cater to your local market. Look at the websites of local Chamber of Commerce, professional groups, or simply search Google.
