The best way I have found lately is Myspace.
I would first recomend getting yourself a myspace account.
Create your profile and add VALUABLE content. Something people will actually enjoy seeing.
Then also mention your business in your myspace.
They key is!
Find people on myspace who will most likely want to see your business and become friends with them.
To do this, you must first use your marketing brain and come up with some keywords you think your customer would put on their myspace.
Then, instead of using the built in "browse feature" that myspace uses goto google.
Type in this: site:myspace.com "keywords you came up with"
The result will be a list of profiles targeted via your keywords.
I hope this helps.
One scheme I have seen on myspace seems to work very well though.
People make silly web pages (currently stupid signs) make a myspace profile and invite as many people as possible to their friends list. Then they make a bulletin (which goes to all their friends) saying something to the effect of "Look at this picture. There is a trick. If you cant see it re-post this bulletin for the answer". Of course they never get the answer but send more traffic to these pages that have 1 picture and framed with adds.
I have looked at the little counters at the bottom of these pages and they must get over 100,000 people to the page in a few days which must also grow exponentially.
