Aside from those ad networks, you can also make money from your blog through Affiliate marketing. This has to do with promoting company’s products on your blog by sharing your referral links. Once any of your blog visitors buy a product through your link, you’ll get a commission.

Then you marketed the products on the blog to your visitors and 5 decided to buy; your commission will be $10 X 15(sales) = $150 (Commission). You can be making this sum of money on a daily basis if enough traffic comes to the blog.
