    I'm looking for ideas.

    I have a Tumblr with about 30k followers which I build over 5 years. It's about a specific aesthetic style which appeal to people passionate about cosplay, costumes and who participates to fairs like Comicon and other similar events.

    It doesn't have a lot of views on the public website, so Adsense is not giving much.

    What else can I do? Here are what I thought:

    - participate in the Amazon Associate program and post links on my tumblr (already started, got about $2 in 5 days, but hopefully it will be better with time)
    - create an affiliate ecommerce and sell products from the Amazon Associate program
    - participate in other affiliate programs (Ebay, Etsy, Aliexpress, others?)
    - collect email addresses to post affiliate links (not Amazon links to be against their TOS) (I already set up Sendy to collect and send newsletters)

    Any idea other than affiliate links and adsense? :)

    create an ecommerce site and dropship products from aliexpress for 100% profit margins.

    I'm worried about warranty and returns. And how to convince people to buy from me if they have those extremely long shipping and delivery times

    state "no returns" on your site
    look into shipping options on their site.

    people will buy it, stop making excuses
