The question is "advertise what" ?
We have nothing to sell so the only advertisement that we need is to
make ourself known so that people can use our distribution. Luckily many
people already use Debian and when they are happy with it they
advise Debian to their friends. Several big users of Debian put
banners and logos on their website acknowledging the use of Debian
and promoting it at the same time.
Some Debian developers (and even debian users) participate in various
events (LinuxExpo, Libre Software Meeting, etc.) and present Debian
to the visitors. We even have some material available on our website to
help them setup a Debian booth (http://www.debian.org/events/material).
When we have news, we post them on our mailing-lists and the subscribers
(our users) usually forward them where they like (slashdot, linuxfr,

If you have other precise question feel free to ask. Even in French by
private mail if you wish.
