Here are a couple of ideas as I see your business is in Florida:
Contact the Florida Small Business Development Center for help to apply for a business loan or to see if you are eligible for some type of work related grant. Most business development centers are normally state funded so the services should be free, but double check their website to make sure: http://www.floridasbdc.com/
Also, you may consider optimizing your site if you haven't already done so. The sponsored advertising can get really expensive and as a business owner myself, I am not sure they really pay out as fast as you like them too.
Try attending networking events in your area to get your name out there. Building relationships first is key to getting new business.
