But wait, there’s more!
Having a professional media kit for your food blog is essential if you want to work with brands. Unfortunately, it’s not always affordable, especially when you’re starting out.
We teamed up with Shay Bocks to create a templated media kit that you can use to build your own personalized media kit!
You’ll need Photoshop to edit the file (you can subscribe to the online version of Photoshop for $9.99 a month); if you need instructions, Shay has created a step-by-step video tutorial to guide you through the process and show you how to change the colors, logo, text, and images.
