Never heard of a media kit? You are far from being alone. For most people, a media kit isn’t something they have ever made or seen. But if you are looking to make it big as a blogger, you need to have one.
What is its purpose? The idea is to allow people to read it quickly, getting the basic information they need about you, your blog, or your company. It is an excellent PR tool that you can use when promoting a launch or a product, service, or series, trying to get a sponsor interested in you, or just making connections in the blogging world.
So, how can you make one? By using one of the 3 free options below.
Pic Monkey is a great site for making just about anything. From editing to photos to designing posters, it can do it all, and most everything it offers is free. It is fairly simple to use, so you don’t need to be a designer to navigate it, and you will get professional results.
Canva is similar to Pic Monkey, but it is geared more heavily towards graphic design than photo editing, which makes it ideal for creating a media kit. Most items are free, but the paid elements are only $1 each, so even if you do have to pay a little, you won’t be breaking the bank.
While it might not technically be free, chances are you already own it, so at least you aren’t paying just to make the media kit. In terms of design, it is much more complicated than the two options above. However, if you are familiar with Word, you should be able to create the kit easily enough.
