One of the things that turned up several times in the comment thread for “The Problem With Free Milk: Giving Away Your Quilt Work”, was how to present yourself and your business as a bona fide business, and there was some discussion in the comments about media kits, what they were, and how they are used.
Sam Hunter at Hunter’s Design Studio has been working on her We are $ew Worth It campaign, and has been collecting resources to that end. In Sam’s new post We Are $ew Worth It Resources: Press Kits, she talks about the press kit she is putting together for a book event she is doing at Powell’s, and what she is and is not including. It got me to thinking about what I would want to include, and how I would present it, both online and in print. It most certainly wouldn’t be a static object, done once and never touched again.
If you have one, would you be willing to share your experiences in the comments here or over at Sam’s blog? It would be much appreciated!
OK. My deadline is in 2 1/2 weeks, and I have to put nose back to the grindstone. Happy Quilting, friends!
As someone who has been in the business world for many year, I say Yes you do need a media kit. But since you have other things to deal with right now that are more pressing, you’d better stick to that for the moment. Good luck!
