Before heading to BlogHer in Chicago last week, I decided to take the advice of a few fellow bloggers and make a media kit postcard rather than a media kit sheet. They are easier to carry around and pass out, they are more professional looking and have more information than a standard business card.
So with that in mind, I decided I just didn’t have time to make my own design. I went to Kelly at Brown Bag Media with my new blog design and asked her to work her magic. I didn’t really give her any direction, other than my blog design and the card contents and she came up with the perfect design! I don’t think I would have designed it or described it any better myself! It has a great connection to my blog and all the information that a company or PR company is looking for.
There were still plenty of times where a business card is easier or necessary, but for those times where I made some real connections, this was a great way to show off my blog design, professionalism as well as blog stats that companies are going to ask for.
So if you are heading to a conference anytime soon or want an electronic or print designed media kit, Brown Bag Media comes highly recommended. Make sure to check out her Etsy shop as well as her blog for more designs she has done!
