Building your own product for sale is one the easiest and most lucrative systems of getting yourself ready for Adsense negative side.

3. Try Other Ad Networks

Adsense is truly the best among all Ads served networks, but, it would have been an overstatement to say it is the only advertisement network around for bloggers.

There are many other advertisement networks including cost-per-click, cost-per-sales and pay-per-actions, which pays nearly as the same as Google Adsense

As a matter of facts, there are some blogs which adsense really don’t greatly work on, it is not that those blog does not have enough traffics to earn from Adsense but their niche don’t really appreciate Adsense, example of such niches are blogs that based mostly on tutorials. People tends to visit a tutorial blogs, reads what they want to know, if they want to appreciate you, they leaves a comment and close your page or browse another posts. It is not that they didn’t react to Ads at all, but not that much compare to entertainment blog that Ads and banner catches reader’s attention.

Here is the list of reliable Ads networks to partnership with

4. Sell Direct Ad Space

Selling Ads spaces directly is a wise method of monetization, but may require a load of traffics, it pays so high to sell a direct Ad space as you have just cut-off one factor that shares your revenue which is third-parties or call it a middle man like, Adsense and many Ads services companies.

It happens where company will approach you for a specific Ad space on your blog or sometime, it happens that you walk to them face to face or through a direct contact to advertise on your blog, vice versa.

In that case, advertisers may need to have insight to your blog stats as you may need to disclose necessary information like traffics stats, traffics geo-location, types of audience, and many other information required by advertisers, likewise you the publisher have the rights to charge or negotiate how much you are to take.

Note: Ads sizes varies per payment and don’t forget to decline a deal of a straight Ads space selling which is in no way related to your blog.

5. Selling Online Courses/Ebooks/Podcasts

This funnel is one of the most popular techniques used to earn decent income online. This monetization funnel may or may not cost anything like money except if you need a professional works on your Ebooks like covers, and on podcasts like custom graphic display.

What only I think this may require from you is a well standard writing skills, and a good commentary from people. Other from that, there is nothing more, all you need to do is just grabbing your pen, keyboard, or recording device and start putting down what you know.

And if your books help and deliver what exactly people are expecting from it, then, congratulation, as they will not find it difficult to buy more.
