Another thing you can do if the yarn is not too heavy is to knit the first few stitches with the tail and the yarn at the same time. Just remember that on the next row it's one stitch, not two, even though there are two strands.

If the tail is long, I have also alternated knitting with the yarn and the tail for a few inches.
