Make a Successful Media Kit, Book Review + Giveaway

I received this book free of charge to review.  The opinions are completely my own. The review may contain affiliate links.

I am not new to blogging, but I am new to using my blog to earn money. I have had a hard time trying to find a good resource on making a media kit. I recently got the opportunity to review Richele McFarlin’s new e-book, The Essential Guide to Successful Publicity Kits.  

It is written mainly for bloggers, speakers, and authors.  This book has a media kit, author kit, and speaker kit. It also explains the different kits and the essentials you will need in each kit.  In fact, the information on how to write a bio was just what I needed!

The most helpful resource for me was the printable checklists. These checklists allow you to write things out so you can easily organize the information. There are also templates included to show you how to place your information.  Another great resource is the sample finished kits which give you a better idea how your kit should look. 

I now feel confident that I have everything I need to make a great media kit. I am excited to get started!

  1. I've followed you. Which I totally should have done weeks ago since I have been reading along for weeks!

  2. Followed. I didn't realize you had a separate account or I would have followed earlier. :P

  3. Sharla, I'm wondering if this is a good resource for preachers or just for writing, in general. I can't seem to get the affiliate link to work.

    1. It might help preachers. She has some good ideas, but I think it is mainly for writers. I will enter you in the contest.
