    Does anyone know a way to get a stream of prospective clients to a web design company that is more effective than craigslist posts?

    long tail keyword seo (don't even bother with high traffic the market is too saturated), hire a sales person from craigslist & pay him commission, do some cold calling yourself to local businesses, direct mail flyers, ask your family/friends to help you get leads I DUNNO HOMIE THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER. Get out there.

    If someone has this knowledge, it's valuable. They could be doing it themselves and outsourcing the work thereby creating their own profit.

    You'll probably need to be more specific with your question rather than asking for a profitable method.

    If you have some budget, PPC advertising could surely help: Facebook ads, Adwords, Yahoo/Bing.

    Hit the phones. The tried and true. Craigslist clients are the worst kind of clients in my experience. Call them and set up a face to face, it's your best chance of a sale.

    Online you can use BSTs to draw ppl in, but the tried method I have pounded into people's brains (yet they still don't grasp it when they read it) is a good ppc or ppv advertising campaign with sales copy.You aren't getting the right eyeballs to your site yet, so you need to know where to advertise. This is called "spying on the competition" and it works. Next you will need to do some Authority building for your offline and online clientele. Finally, psychology needs to be saturated into every part of your service, but this should come before even your first steps. I would go further into the discussion, but I'm not willing to make this another 500 page essay type ordeal because in the end it makes little to no impact if the person doesn't take action.
