We did a bunch of pre-launch Facebook posts/advertising/tours (even during construction!)
We initially joined the local chamber since they provide some good support and bring a small group of people to your grand opening and do the traditional ribbon cutting.
We offered free coworking so people could come try it out and have had great success with that. We still run free coworking promotions often and usually get new members from it or great referrals.
I also reached out to any organizations that might be interested in what we were doing. People got really excited about it and helped spread the word.
We put up flyers all around town especially at certain cafes known for startups and tech meetups, organizations like the Small Business Development Center were also great places to get the word out…
Craigslist still brings in leads!
Meetup.org also brings people in so we post our events there.
