What's the best way to go about this?

I get about 500 monthly visitors to this site and I want to give local businesses the chance to advertise through a 125x125 and paid text links on my site but am not exactly sure how to contact them (email, in person?), how much to charge (CPM?), etc...

    Imagine that you have just finished writing a blog or a piece that checks all the boxes. It has great value, is well designed, interactive and can be a hit with the audience. Now, you are sitting there and wondering what to do next. That is a situation which most bloggers and content writers, especially beginners, encounter on a frequent basis. Most people do not know where to go next and what to do with their content, once they are finished with everything. Well, the answer to those questions is fairly simple. When you are done writing a blog or content page and are satisfied with end product, the logical next step is distribution and publishing. The top content marketers and bloggers today, are of the opinion that while content may be king; it's the distribution which matters. Jonathan Perelman went on record to say that content is king and distribution the queen.
