I've built a new developer website and have found some companies willing to discuss some sort of partnership. These are companies that sell products that would normally be advertised on sites like mine.
However, my traffic is only around 4,000 page views per week and my goal is to get these companies to give me a few thousand dollars a month.
What can I offer them in return for this money? Here's what I've brainstormed so far.
At a time when money is so tight, which of these make sense to get them to part with their hard-earned money? Anything else I could offer?
One thing I did in my popular laptop forum, was have a 'sponsored' section, with a subforum dedicated to talking about our sponsors' products. My members could discuss and ask questions directly to the people who sold them and the sponsor could advertise and educate their demographic directly through the forum.
It turned out to be win-win for both of us, hopefully it could fit into your site.

hard- earned money?
Seriously, what do you expect? Successfull blogs make money. But they have thousands of visitors per day, not 4000 per week, and views on top (i.e. one visitor may be many views).
