How To Make A Quick Media Kit Using PicMonkey

By cecilyk |

This is my media kit. I made it today in about an hour.

If you’re heading to BlogHer, you might be wondering if you need a media kit. Frankly, it’s hard to say who needs one and who doesn’t  – sometimes business cards are enough (you have business cards, yes?), but some brands want more info.

That’s where a media kit steps in. It offers a snapshot of your platform, your stats, your influence  (yes, by the numbers, and no, we’re not made out of numbers but that’s the info brands are often looking for).

Some people prefer longer, more inclusive media kits; it might be more appropriate to call what I’m demonstrating here a “one sheet” rather than a full media kit. But I’ve created these for several bloggers and they’ve found them handy and beneficial.

So, are you ready to learn how to make yours? Here we go!

    I have a sense this is going to take me a lot longer than an hour- but Pic Monkey is a learning curve worth scaling I think! thanks Cecily

    Cecily, this is great! Thank you for the wonderful tip–much less painful to create that my full-blown, formal media kit. :)

    i feel like a nerd – i can’t figure out how to switch from “collage” to “edit photos” HELP!

    1. cecilyk says:

      Mary, you have to save the photo as a collage, and then re-open it to switch to edit photos!
