    I've recently started a site that tells people all about news in my specific industry (quite large)

    Nothing major truth be told. 500 hits a day on the site and looking to expand into and help spread the word about the site - by printing newspaper style leaflets essentially with like the top 5 stories of the week on it and putting it in local coffee shops.

    My hope is once I build enough awareness around it (grow email list enough) to launch an app that gives everyone the stories.

    If I was able to tell people that we have 200 readers for example in the local papers, could I ask businesses to pay for ad space?

    Its just that I can imagine will be expensive to pay for it out of pocket.

    Thanks.
