You should try out for banner exchange and some good affilliate program, Another option is for free classified ads in ezines.

One of the greatest tools for getting clients is to give products and services away.
So make an offer to give away a certain level of banner service. This could be limited to the first 15 or 20 to apply. Or run a comp to give some away. Then open dialog with those who entered.
BUT if you are getting clients from other means, and your website is not doing it that means there is something wrong with the site.
I can see the barrier is in the order page process. Your payment options indicate you are in Eastern Europe - most people want familiar payment options and the two you have, while OK ( I have used MB) are not familiar. This will cause you to struggle.
I suggest changing your ordering look and feel, make it an enquiry page - do not mention payment options at this stage. This I believe, will generate many more enquiries from your site.

Your prices don't help.. I think that they are far too "low" to be taken seriously by real business.. At $15 I have to assume that you are not US based..
If you are US based, and you charge $15 for a banner, and it takes you 2 hours to make it, then you are grossing just $7.50 an hour.. And it just gets ugly from there.. At 3 hours per banner you are making less than the national minimum wage..
You can make more money saying "You want fries with that" at McDonalds..

I agree that you should try and get your site on some banner exchange programs.
I have a banner exchange program on my website I would be happy for you to list in.
Just go to the site in my signature and down the button right it has "Add a Link" and "Add a Banner"...

Yes, one look at bids/prices on elance or other outsourcing sites for banners and you'll see the rules for supply and demand are working nicely. I use an Indian firm for banners - they are not just inexpensive but very, very good. I usually get an entire pack of banners (20 or so) for under $100. No names given - I keep my outsourcing secrets to myself ;-)
