Here is an idea that has worked well for me.

Eat breakfast!

Okay, sounds dumb, but when your done look for an individual or couple that fits your target demographic and pay there tab (I use breakfast because it's usually cheap). They will usually be very surprised and try to talk you out of it, don't let them get away. After you pay (important), when they ask how they can thank you just hand them your card and ask them to stop by and visit sometime.

It doesn't always work, but a lot of people feel compelled to return the favor. Even if they don't, you can be sure you've made a favorable impression and they told at least one other person.

There are still ways to do offline marketing, billboards are effective. also, you need to make sure that your product packaging is well thought out. There are many ways you can boost your brandís exposure on the shelves just by packaging your products differently. you can also send out cards and small gifts to clients and use special occasions and milestones to make your presence known.
