    I used to have a site which was focus on providing free WordPress Themes for various niches. At that time, I didn't know how to monetize the site and it was just my hobby.

    However, I want to launch this kind of site again because it's my hobby, and I like doing it during my free time. Now, the thing is how to make money with it? Because adding affiliate links to another premium theme sites such as ThemeForest, ElegantThemes and similar sites was not working, I'd like to know if there is/are any more monetization method(s) beside that.

    You can try locking your themes with CPA offers

    Offer some free professional wordpress themes, and offer some premium themes. On your free themes, add a backlink to your directory. While for the premium you can start with your own designs and charge, then ask others to join and split the different. Or Offer Free and Premium but premium points to themefoest.

    Or Offer free themes for signing up to the site or newsletter. once you've developed enough users sell the list...in batches
    add an adfly link in between the download link.
    host your files on a get paid per download...

    Content locking seems like the best way to go. If the free themes are yours, and you made them, adsense wouldn't be a bad way to monetize either.
