I remember a time when you didn’t get paid for ads on your site. Unless you had some kind of sponsorship or sold a product you couldn’t monetize your online assets. Today Google, Amazon, and countless other platforms allow you to make money passively through your online asset. And what do you hear over and over again? It’s not enough money.
If you want to make more money there’s always a way, but if you don’t want to sell a product, or use affiliate links you can always get Patron to fund you. My point is your options are limitless, so why are people getting stuck on the one thing that is paying less and complaining. You don’t like what you’re getting? Do something about it.
