Method – 1. Monetize with CPC Ad Networks
CPC(cost-per-click) is a form of advertising which is very common and most popular medium for bloggers to generate higher revenue with banner and text advertisements. When talking about CPC it comes to our mind about Google Adsense, right? Generally Adsense is the only ad network which works fine for niche based websites and 100% monetizeable with blogs than regular HTML websites.

Method – 2. Monetize with CPM Ad Networks
After CPC advertising method bloggers most favorite ad network is CPM advertising since it requires impressions to generate higher revenue no clicks are needed. Somebody still doesn’t understand what is CPM advertising and How it really works without having any click from visitors?
Let’s explain; CPM is known ad Cost per Milli or Cost per 1000 Impressions so this means you will only be credited money for 1000 impressions completed because the equation says
Your site generates 500 unique visitors per day, 700+ page views and 1500 ad impressions
If the advertiser pays $0.15 per 1000 impressions then your earning per day
CPM Earning = (Total impressions/1000 ) * Rate of 1000 impressions
= (1500/1000) * 0.15

If your ad impressions go up then earnings will definitely rise and it doesn’t require how much clicks you get for that ad space or you will not be credited extra penny for clicks. It may happen, per 1000 impressions can generate 1000 clicks or even 0 click, the advertiser will not pay you any extra more for clicks he will only pay for impressions.
CPM method is sometime better for Advertisers but not always suppose if a certain advertiser gets only few clicks spending huge for 1000 impressions then definitely it creates loss for his ad campaign but probably publishers may get more money according to his/her ad impressions.
Below are some of the best CPM ad networks to start working with even slow traffic sites.
Method – 3. Monetize with CPA Ad Networks
CPA is quite a different medium of advertising comparing to CPC and CPM method it’s because in this form of advertising an Advertiser will only pay to Publisher for a certain action by a visitor delivered from a referred link. This is less risky ad campaign for Advertisers and more effective, profitable amongst all the advertising methods.
Probably publishers have less chance to make higher income unless or until his/her visitors access those referred links and take actions like filling any form, signing up for email lists, taking any survey, purchasing any product, or any specific task defined be the certain advertiser.
