    Promote it on Facebook PPC. It has geo-targeting there. Also, promote it on forums located in that city / country.

      Great idea! Facebook advertising can be great place to promote a local website as it can also boost up followers on the Facebook Page.

    I think all of mentioned things are great ideas (Facebook, Craiglist, local forums/websites/blogs). So these things and local alternatives of these if available. It also depends on your budget.

    Try Facebook or Instagram, Facebook has the most visits so you're more likely to gain more attention through that platform.

    Create Social Media Pages e.g. Facebook and Twitter. Also you can contact some local business related to your niche and make them aware of your website.

    Use social media. Create accounts for Facebook and create FB page and FB ads that targets your market location. Create Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter Accounts and post all your updates there.

    aside from FB ads, you need to create also campaigns for Google Adwords, Yahoo and Bing Ads.
