Thanks for sharing.
Here in Finland...
Even our country is small, we still need to work for advertisement. We use all those what you mentioned. Now days I am lucky to have a good agent that takes care of everything (but I know he works much to get me work!)
I use my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/KlovniSebastian and that helps people to find my show's

Besides Facebook, there are some entertainer groups on linkedin. I have found a couple of twitster/balloon groups and a clown groups on there that you can network with Mitty if you are interested.
if your just starting out again, donate your time and perofmr at a few festivals like community events and such. pass out ALOT of cards there.
Not to unearth a buried thread or anything, but...
Attractively designed business cards and other print materials are important to advertise. Take for example this card and 8 x 10 I designed for clown duo Steve & Ryan...
If you are in the market for some print materials, let me know. If you want to order an autographed 8x10 from Steve & Ryan, contact them!
Nothing beats good SEO. I wish I was good at it!
Hello I'm a clown from Germany. For me the most important thing is the webpage. I have a good ranking with Google from that I got a lot of jops. There's a Google maps which you can use people will find you low in the local area. You can even try Google adwords but for that you have to pay.

Welcome to the clown forum, Mr. President!
Wait... I just have to ask.... Is the web address a Simpson's reference?
(Namely, the explanation Sideshow Bob had for his tattoo, "Die, Bart, Die.")
