Simply Placing Advertisements on your Blog/Website is currently one of the best ways to Monetization. This method has been loved since very old times. From Printed Advertisements on NewsPapers to Spoken Advertisements on Radio, and then Video Adverts on TV, and now finally on Websites.

Generally, the 2 most used types are Display Advertisements and Native Advertisements. Display advertisements are just simply used to promote any type of product or service using visuals like Images, Video, etc 

Native Advertisements match and blend the type of content at where they are placed, which results in Higher Conversions due to higher click-through rates.

There are tons of online platforms to show these kinds of Native & Display Adverts on a site, some famous ones are Adsence, Media Net, and Ezoic. While Adsence doesn't have any minimum traffic requirements while the Media Net and Ezoic do have.

When side by side comparing both Affiliate Programmes and Advertisement networks such as Adsence, it turns out that Affiliate Marketing is more effective and beneficial.

But it doesn't mean you only show Affiliate ads on your site, it is always good to keep it 50-50, like creating content that promotes affiliate product for example: "Top 5 Best Washing Machine in India", here, you'll list 5 Washing Machines and give out an Affiliate Link to the product and then if someone buys it using your affiliate link you'll get a commission.\

Some of the best affiliate Programmes are Amazon Associates, Affiliaxe, DFO Global, and CJ Affiliate.

Bluehost is one of the ways to earn affiliate income, you can advertise the services of Reseller Club and if someone buys the service, you get a commission. If you have a good size of audience you can earn quite well from it. Then there's the Reseller Club which is a hosting provider you can earn affiliated income from selling their services as well. 

3. Sponsored Posts

Sponsored Posts

A sponsored post, also known as a promoted post, is a post to any community-driven notification-oriented website which is explicitly sponsored as an advertisement by a particular company to draw a large amount of popularity through user promotion and moderation to the most active or most viewed page on the website. 

The model has become adopted by various ad-supported but community-driven websites as an addition, substitute, or replacement of other pay-per-click advertisement formats, such as web banners, text, and rich media.

There are a ton of agencies and companies willing to sponsor your website or blog, but it may take a time to find the right one for you, there are companies that even sponsor blogs with a low volume of traffic. 

One thing to note is that whichever sponsor you pick, make sure that your blog's niche matches with the sponsored post otherwise the post will not engage your audience and won't get engagement. 

Now, the sponsored post may be a review unit about the products from the sponsored company or a buying guide of products from the sponsored company.
