I have two ISPs that connect to

two routers that then flow into my network.  Traffic from some of my remotes sites are actually taking the least prefered route.  I have used both local-preference(90) and prepend my AS number (up to the limit of 10 times) to make one of the routes least desireable.  Are there any other ways to influence the routes out on the internet?

Local Preference - Outbound

AS Path prepend - Inbound. Other ways would be with BGP communities.
