    Hello.

    I have a large weather network with almost 15,000 likes on my page, 40,000+ unique visitors each month but I'm struggling to sell advertising.

    We are a non profit community and my aim is to raise funds through offering advertising to cover running costs hence our low advertising rates.

    Problem is where is the best place to target potential advertisers?

    Thank you.

    The best place to target potential advertisers is the companies that supply products associated with the weather like http://www.rainmac.com/ or http://rainwearcentral.com/ which is a forum for rainwear:eek: just type in rainwear into google:)

    Have you out together a media pack?

    Agree with the above poster!! You need to be able to explain the benefits of advertising with you in a clear and concise way also.

    Hi I also agree with above. The best way is to go directly to the target market.

    put together a list of companies that are related somehow to your niche and start contacting them directly. Just make them an offer they can't refuse.
