  2. Hi Eddie,

    I have seen many posts that list the different monetizing methods but none of them give recommendation on the requirement for each method to be successful. Thank you so much for sharing this post.

  3. Hi Eddie,

    Great tips on how to monetize a blog. I used to use Adsense and still do on some other blogs. I just didn’t like the low payouts.

    I would much rather do affiliate marketing and produce my own products. I think that these methods would provide much better returns that Adsense.

    Just my two cents, thanks for sharing this info that can definitely help anyone start monetizing their site.
