All great suggestions!
In addition, we post on all of the aggregators (mostly to improve SEO), be sure our SEO is good because a lot of people will google [your town] coworking. You should be on the first page. And Craigslist. We probably get 1/3 to 1/2 of our members through Craigslist. (We train carefully on this.) And have shills over the first month or so! Get your friends to work there free to start so the place has a vibe initially.
