In this article, we have covered some legit ways to double or triple your earnings other than showing ads.
And we want to start the discussion with blog failures which are one of the factors to quit blogging by beginners.
Why do Beginners quit Blogging early?
Every day about 7.5 million blog posts are published on the internet, which is a huge opportunity for content creators.
Bloggers are publishing content with the hope of performing well (best) in the SERP and providing value to the people.
80% of beginners due to late indexing of websites and low monetization quit at an early stage (patience).
But if you manage to pass 6-8 months publishing quality content on your site then you will start earning from your blog.

5 Most Powerful Ways to Monetize your Blog/Website
We are here with the 5 most powerful and legit ways to monetize your blog (site) other than Adsense or Ezoic.
1. Affiliate Marketing
This is one of the biggest streams of passive income of Bloggers to which helps them earn even while sleeping.
It is a marketing program used by brands to market products, services, etc., with the help of affiliates who advertise their products through links provided to them from the brands which help them to analyze their link performance and earn commissions.
About 84% of bloggers use affiliate marketing as a source of monetization of their blogs.
Too bloggers are earning more than $100k from affiliate income and largely depend on it.
When to start Affiliate Marketing?
It’s never late to start affiliate marketing on your blogs.
But I would recommend you to start adding links to your website after you have published at least 30-35 blogs on your site.
As it is not good for beginners to waste their crucial time at the start, as it distracts the novices from publishing blogs.
How does affiliate marketing works?
After completion of each blog content, relevant affiliate links are added to the blog for the improving user experience and a passive income source for the blog.
The users get relevant product recommendations and links to buy without wasting time at zero cost. And,
On the other hand, bloggers earn a small percentage commission of every successful product sale.

Showing ads on blogs are the most important part of a blogger on the internet.
This is the basic way to earn money from blogs which you can start from the very beginning of setting up your blog.
While beginning a blog, one must use Google Adsense without any issue as it excepts every website which has at least 10-15 blogs published on the site and follows its policies.
As you don’t need a minimum number of Pageviews to get accepted on Google Adsense.
When can you change your Ads Platform?
In general, everyone uses Adsense for showing ads on their blogs for a good monetization strategy, but one needs to change the platform when your page views have grown on a good level.
With every milestone you cover on your blog, in terms of page views, you can update your ad network for better CPC.
