The weather. I make sure it is pleasant, sunny and an inducement for folks to get out. Next is properly placed directional signage.

online marketing works the best.... on many sites, especially google+.... use the right keywords that a potential buyer would use TO FIND OPEN HOUSE EVENTS FOR THAT DAY.... I'd use: Open House May 1 Franklin MA....as an example.... that would bring up all of the open house events in franklin ma on that day...

Putting it in the MLS and letting that sync to the online portals.  100% free and drives 99% of my traffic.

Signs.

Promotion -- offline and online especially mls since that is picked up in other forums.

Perhaps, most importantly:

The right attitude -- if you don't like open houses or don't find them worthwhile -- don't do them.
