I'll organize a charity marathon and inform the press to do coverage about the event and make sure they mention my company name as the sponsor.

I would use the money to dominate as many different local results as possible with outsource help and then charge a rent to each market I've got top rankings for and use the recurring rent to keep marketing my site online and off.

And many more I think

Good luck!
I like your Idea dude

Tricky one, but if it is a new business then you need to lay down the basics for a base before going too in-depth too quickly. Business cards, leaflets, flyers etc are the simplest and easiest form of a successful advertising campaign and spreading the word about your products and offerings is best place to start. From there you can then spread out into press releases and concentrate on SEO for your website etc. Business cards and the such like should always be used throughout an advertising campaign as they are continually a successful way of spreading word of mouth about a business, no matter how small or large!

I'd put your company on TV for three months, 2 channels, primetime heavy, but still including off peak (depending on your business)

could generate anywhere from 500 to 1500 new clients.

works like a charm.
