    Direct snail mail marketing?

    I would say direct mail is an excellent media to use, as long as your product/service is high priced enough. Using coins or other attention grabbers like @Walter Hay to make your mail lumpy is a great way to make sure it gets opened. The price is also much more stable compared with PPC...
