Statistically we know that 90% of the time the buyer that purchases your home will be represented by another Realtor. So, that means that if you are not getting any showing activity, it is not that all of the buyers are on vacation.
They are buying other homes that show the most value. That means that you have a choice. Either lower the price to increase the value, or add some of features that a buyer will perceive to be added value.
The rule of thumb is 10-12 showings or one offer in two weeks or lower the price.
Many people say call the broker/manager but as one I can tell you that your best contact is with your agent directly. Tell him/her what you are looking for from them and find out why they are not doing it. When you say bare minimum the extras you are looking at may be things that other agents are doing to appease the seller but they may not actually work. For instance many agents use flyer boxes, brochures in the home, open houses. Whereas your agent may be working behind the scenes getting your home exposed on the web in several sites and you may not know it. As Lee said Communication is the Key.
Talk to your agent before you look for another.
If however after discussing with them what they have done and what they plan on doing you are still not satisfied tell them so. I'm sure the other Agents here would agree with me in that if someone isn't happy with what I'm doing I certainly don't want to force them to work with me. If your listing contracts are like ours it is with the agency - not the particular agent so perhaps you could arrange something with the company.
Good luck and please keep us posted!
More seriously: I don't know your particular situation but it is always a good idea of asking every agent you are interviewing to present you a written marketing strategy. In our practice, my wife and I do it routinely because a) we are not afraid to put our word in writing and b) we want to be on the same page with clients in terms of what will be done and how. There are agents who are natural-born schmoozers and sales pitch throwers but who, upon securing a listing, don't do anything besides that simple "MLS+sign+Realtor.com" thing. If you don't have something in writing from your agent, it's very easy to get confused about certain things, including what exactly constitues "bare minimum".
Good luck in selling your home!
In today's real estate climate there are variable means of marketing real estate. I always like to take an unbias approach to review the circumstances that include you the seller, pricing your home competitively and the Realtor providing exposure and a quality presentation of the property to as many prospective buyers possible.
Without having an opportunity to review the listing and the market data, I am reluctant to provide an opionion, but can only agree with the suggestions my peers have provided to you in previous answers to your questions.
By all means, if you have not had any success with the discussions you have had with your listing agent, call the agent's manager or broker to see if you can resolve your concerns.
Best of luck in your endeavors.

1) A talk between the manager and agent resulting in improved performance
2) A reassignment of agents for servicing of your listing OR
3) If all else will fail, an unconditional withdrawal of the listing (most managers try to avoid this at all costs)
As for price, it would seem your listing price may be too high for similar homes in your square mile. Did your agent present you with comprehensive data to help you determine your list price? If so, did you incorporate the data into your calculation of the price?
Another thought - did you perhaps ask your agent for a reduced commission? Many times agents will agree to this request from a seller but on the other hand will silently "reduce" the amount of work to be performed to help promote the sale. This could be happening as well.
And so, your problem MAY be either (or a combination) of having a high priced listing or of having insufficient marketing exposure.
Then, yes go to the broker--as a practical matter don't expect much. As all active agents and associate brokers are independent contractors the broker is limited on their recourse as well.
Lastly, talk to your agent, don't hedge tell them you're displeased and why and let them know you're thinking of cancelling...may be enough to get you what you want.
Yes, there are certain price ranges that are slower than others, and not every home is going to sell ... but that is no excuse.
