most of the newbies in this field doesn’t make get good number of sales.

There are a lot of reasons for it:

Sponsorship Review

You can make decent income with Sponsored Review or Sponsored Post. But the question is how you will get the opportunities of sponsorships? To get the Sponsorships, you can reach out to the advertiser, or the sponsor will contact you directly, asking him to review a product in a sponsored post.
But before you contact them to make sure your blog looks professional and check if you have the target audience for the advertiser.

But in this method i would say you should only do sponsorships with trusted and good products, Because if you do a paid review and that product is not good, then you will lose your audience’s trust. So, always provide a disclaimer when you are doing a sponsored review.
