Recently, I have published an article about different monetization techniques. In this article, I have mentioned that Affiliate Marketing is the best way to monetize your blog. The Affiliate Marketing technique will work if you have more blog traffic.
BUT, Affiliate Marketing has some manual work. You have to manually add the affiliate links to the blog post. This is not much burden if we are using the affiliate link manager plugin. We can add links while writing the content.
