Another good strategy that could be added to the original list is using online classifieds to promote locally.  A lot of classified listing are broken out by state/city so they are a great way to target local clients and promote local business listings.  Also online coupons/deals/discounts are a great way to promote locally.  Also any type of media or listings you that support GEO targeting / google maps are great places to build backlinks and content.  Attending offline functions where you can promote your online activities is another great out of the box way of "listing" locally.

 A local search is performed when someone uses a local search engine to find products or services in their area. The local search engines want to populate their search engines with the most local business information to compete against each other as the best local search engine. This is great for people who want to search for products and services online and buy locally because they want to have the largest and most relevant business listings to make the best decision.

First of all, the more business listings a buusiness has, the more presence it has on the internet, and the better the search engine rankings for its website will be. This helps in ranking for the most targeted keywords and common phrases that the businesses customersare searching. Now, when your customers search for a product or service online, they'll find your business first instead of that of oyur competitors.
Having your company information detailed in online directories is a quick and cost-effective way to have  your company reach a large number of online customers. This is because promotion in created press has become expensive for a typical individual or small company that is starting up. This therefore means that a company will enjoy the key benefits of getting on price guests and upcoming customers from their company record within the list, no price.
