It is true that Google Adsense is the best way of generating money for bloggers. Most of the new blogs with reasonable traffic set Google ads on their website. But there are also other ways to spend less and generate more through ads. Here you go

Pay per click advertising:

Pay-Per-Click ads, also known as CPC or Cost Per Click, is one of the common ways of internet advertising. It means that an advertiser will pay you when someone clicks on your ad.

Sell ads on your blog:

If you are already getting the handsome traffic, you may want to sell ads on the website and take control in your hands. So what you need is an “Advertise with us” page on your blog listing out the various formats of available ads and how much does it cost per month. Make sure to mention your Google PageRank, Alexa rank and other traffic stats for buyers to know.

Sell text links on your blog:

You can try text-link ads if you get good organic traffic on your blog where you link a text on your site to another page of a different site.

Cost per Click” ad networks:

So far, we’ve been looking at mostly Cost Per Click (CPC) model for ads. Cost Per Click means the advertiser pays you when someone clicks on their ads. An alternative to CPC is CPM where you gets paid for every 1,000 ad impressions served.

Pop-ups:

I am sure that many bloggers and advertisers dislike popup ads but it’s still a good option. You can display these ads as pop under or popup.

Paid reviews:

You can make a handsome amount of money by publishing reviews on different services and products that you trust. The best thing about this is that you earn a price per review. I’ve seen many websites offering a good amount for review. Well, it depends on incoming traffic and rank as well as your niche.
