  Your Online Resume

I am often asked “How do I land partnerships with brands?” While having a great email pitch is definitely step 1, you should also have a media kit included in every pitch email. A well put together media kit should be able to answer most of the basic questions a brand might have regarding your business. Including the media kit in your introductory pitch email will cut down a lot of the back and fourth conversation. I have added numerous blogger + business media kits on my Pinterest if you need some inspiration.
