How to Turn Your Blog into a Business

The #1 question I get (besides my skincare routine) is how I turned my blog into a business. So today, I’m going to share with you (something I’ve never shared it before) my business checklist! You could bookmark this page or print it out but I suggest that if you’re serious about your business that you should refer back to these point as I found them super helpful when I was building my own.


There’s no one way to turn your blog into a business as there are many different types of successful bloggers and different ways to do so. This just happened to be the way that I run my business. Although these are just the smaller steps I took to get to where I am, to really understand the big picture and some more things most people don’t tell you, watch it all in the video above or click HERE.  



  • I found this article is very informative and lot of useful info here in the post. I will bookmark your blog and take the feeds. Thanks!!

  • […] How To Turn Your Blog Into a Business by the Chriselle Factor I watched Chriselle’s Youtube video on how she turned her blog into a business (with a full team!) first and then checked out her blog post after she mentioned she created a checklist outlining all her tips. Her story is so inspiring and her advice to find your “partners in crime” was something that stuck with me since it’s not something a lot of bloggers touch on when dishing out blog advice. […]

    This is a great post, Chriselle! It’s always inspiring to hear specifics from a realistic business perspective vs. aspirational generalities


  • I love the post. The check list is a great tool to use with the video. I like what you said about there not being one way to start a blog. Personally, I take everyones advice and jot it down for later use. Today, I put “Make a vision board and mission statement” on the top of the list.

  • You are so inspirational! Loved the video.

I am in the process of building my own team and grow my blog and look forward to find such great colleagues and partners in crime like you did 😀 I believe that building a team and growing together is really critical for the way the blog or any business will evolve. Wishing you all the best for your life, blog, and success!

    Hey! I just found this post, and your story is so inspiring. I’ve been looking for a job in fashion for about a year now and I’ve been feeling very rejected. I live in Barcelona with a lot of fashion opportunities, but no one seems to think I’m worth something. So, I am working on my blog meanwhile making clothes for my own outfits hoping to be where you are one day 🙂 you are very lucky to be where you are now! Your blog is very inspiring 🙂 thank you for sharing your story.

    Best wishes from Barcelona!

  • Living in Germany where blogging is a business, but not one many people know about, it is really hard to find likeminded people to work with.

  • Elizabeth says:

    Really loved this post! I’m relatively new as a blogger, and I feel like there’s so much I can do everyday to make my blog better and better. Really appreciate you sharing all of this advice! One question that I do have (and that I’m really hoping can be addressed) – when creating media kits, I’m always a little stumped as to the monetary side of the business? Blogging is a relatively new industry, so I’m not too sure what’s considered a “fair” price for the work we’re exchanging. Looking forward to hearing you talk about this topic!

    XO, Elizabeth
