It seems like every time I turn around, I am asked how I am able to turn my blog into a business. This is something that some might think is easy to do, but the fact of the matter is, if you want to turn your blog into a business and actually make revenue on it, you have to run it and treat it like a business. That means putting in the hours of work, getting the audience and keeping them engaged, connecting with brands, reps and groups who you will create a professional working relationship with while being an influencer in marketing. It is something that does not happen overnight, I mean, if you want to be successful, you have to work at it, have the numbers and the more numbers the more money you can make. There are many networks out there that are beneficial for growing your blogs outreach and revenue, and one of the best blogging networks that I am proud to be a part of is the Markerly Blogging Network.
