One of the best ways to get advertisers to buy your ad
space is to compete with your competitors directly. If
your competitors offer pricing at a certain level then
price your ads space lower but similarly. Make special
pre-launch packages that offer premium exposure at good
prices and stress the demographics that you will be
attracting. Once media buyers taste your site and
visitor demographics they will hopefully be hooked and
see click thrus that will bring renewals. If nothing
else try using an ad network to help you sell your ad
