Y’all, I might be all geeky and considered a veteran when it comes to this blogging gig, but media kits for blogs? They’ve always scared me. I don’t work with brands a whole lot and I was never taught how to make a media kit. Till the past two weeks when I ‘attended’ Melissa Culbertson’s Media Kit SMASH course.
Melissa’s course comes with a daily email which links you to members-only content where the daily lesson is hosted. On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday you get lessons with assignments, free downloads and video how-tos. Wednesday is catch up day and chat with the folks taking the course at the same time as you. Weekends are free time. The course takes two weeks, but at the end you have a gorgeous media kit you’ll be proud to show off. Trust me, I was giddy this morning when I sent mine to a brand rep!
Some huge plusses…
This course comes with pre-made templates you can edit to fill in your own information.
Instruction for editing the colors and icons used in the course.
Advice for deciding what stats to show off, how to find your reader demographics and more!
And a great, great teacher!
Considering this is one of the only online courses I’ve completed, I give it a huge two thumbs-up!
