Working with publicists, brands and networking are all fantastic ways to grow your audience and sometimes, monetize your blog. This panel will take you beyond basic research and simple affiliate programs. Here you will have the opportunity to engage with four women from varied facets of the blogosphere and different PR niches. Find out what brands are really looking for in a blog and what you can do to make your site even more attractive for PR. We’re not holding anything back! Come with questions – we promise you’ll walk away with a light bulb over your head (figuratively, of course… unless you’re a magician in which case, you’re pretty awesome).
