    These all work but it all boils down to being creative. It also involves knowing ‘who pays for what”. I mean not all advertisers are willing to spend money on a different smaller demographics so it pays to do a lil bit indepth research.

      I think the best way is to contact those people who are advertising on other blogs in your niche. The fact that they are advertising there proves that they are willing to spend the money and they know much about direct advertising.

      They will need very little convincing from your end especially if you have reasonable traffic on your site.
