"google adsense"
Absolutely.  Keyword targeted text ads provide the best return by far right now.

"any relevant directories"
Just be sure to avoid any directory that requires you to link back to them.  This is invariably a link farm and linking to them will harm your natural search rankings.

"exchange links with competitors"
Again, be very careful who you link to.  As a general rule, only link to quality sites with information relevant to your visitors.

Get outside the 'net.  Use print advertising that already targets your appropriate visitor.
Hi thenone,

Also, In addition to Google Adsense, Overture is well worth looking into. Make sure you spend your time doing keyword analysis to get the highest probability of bringing in only targeted visitors. Make sure your not using keywords that are general, rather targeted specifically to your niche market. I use http://www.wordtracker.com for keyword analysis, but there are many other options.

Cheers!

On a side not and in relation to humeniuk's post about who you link to, McAfee SiteAdvisor (http://www.siteadvisor.com/) is a good place to start. You can look up where websites are linking to. For example:

http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/experts-exchange.com

Shows you basics like e-mail tests, download tests, if the site is free from adware/spyware, what other sites the base site links to and if those are safe sites and/or annoyance sites, and has some user reviews of the site itself.

You could put in your own URL and see what comes up.
