You could also attach a notification about ad space at the bottom of your blog posts and your RSS feeds so both website visitors and RSS subscribers will be well aware of the fact.

Do a quick search of sites who are in a similar niche and then check out the companies that are advertising on their site. If your traffic is much higher then these sites then the chances of these same companies wanting to advertise on your site is pretty good. Now all you have to do is contact them with your offer; these include banner and Adsense advertisers.
4 Google Your Potential Advertisers.
Google has many purposes and one of them is to provide you with great leads to potential advertisers. Perform a quick search of products and services that are related to your niche then weave throught the results and contact the companies who might be interested in advertising on your site. You can also contact companies who advertise via Google Adwords; since they’re already spending money advertising on Google they might be interested in expanding their product’s reach to your site’s audience.
5 Search for Advertisers on Social Networks.
You’ll find hundreds of companies using popular social networks such as Twitter and Facebook as their advertising platform. For example, you’ll find ads on the right sidebar of your Facebook wall or page and these are from various companies who are obviously willing to pay for a bit of exposure. Contact the ads which have relevancy to your niche and offer them more advertising opportunity.
While finding advertisers who are willing and eager to advertise on your site isn’t impossible, it does take some time and effort. And since not many are long term advertisers, you should continually be looking for new advertisers each and every month. It’ll take work on your end, but it’s work that pays off.
