TTS: If you read back through the archives, you'll see some good threads on elevating your online profile/off-site SEO. I'd also suggest hitting getlisted.org, put in your info, and see where your online footprint is lacking.
ShorterGrass: You'd have a tough time tying your Facebook or Adwords campaigns to the increased organic rank of your web site. Your site rose due to your location/competition.

Once you're ranking, you can eliminate that ad spend, or reallocate it to other keywords of interest.
