Want to work with brands? Get hired as a speaker? Star in commercials and print campaigns, become an in-demand expert for local and national media and more? It all starts with your media kit.

Want to work with brands? Get hired as a speaker? Star in commercials and print campaigns, become an in-demand expert for local and national media and more? It all starts with your media kit.

But it sure doesn’t end there!

In this deck, you’ll learn:

**What to include and what to keep out of your media kit

**Why a one-sheet really means one sheet

**How media kits and portfolios are going digital and how you can stay ahead of the trend

**The best ways to find the true decision makers (no more “To Whom it May Concern” letters)

You don't just need a media kit -- you need a branding plan. If you're a blogger looking for more readers, to connect with brands, to monetize your site or to expand your presence as a national expert, it starts with your one-sheet but ends...well, it never ends. From leveraging LinkedIn to YouTube, get the keywords, specific metrics, writing tips and more that will help you become the go-to girl or guy in your field.

Katy will break down real media kits -- the good, the bad and the really bad -- and share the tools that even beginner bloggers can use to stand out in the crowd. And since she receives more than her share of truly terrible pitches, she'll show you how not to end up in a producer's trash folder.
