In the past 2 years I have come to conclude that the best way to advertise with a limited budget is to do whatever inspires you the most. If you use Youtube for example: Regardless of the link juice, a good presentation can easily get your site going by a 5 minute impact that comes from within.

Everytime I go on webmaster forums, I see mostly the same "ideas" shared which are usually pretty basic:
Link building, email marketing etc.

Not saying there is anything wrong with it, but I am wondering if anyone here has something to share that worked for them that not everyone has done yet.

Mainly I am hoping for some offline marketing success as I personally believe there are many avenues which can bypass the regular online channels and get someone with the right motivation kick started quicker.
Thanks in advance,
