Hey PH 👋 Press Kite is the easiest way to create a press kit for your startup. In under 7 minutes, you can have a press kit built to best practices and you can do it for free. Press Kite is a product actually born out of the Product Hunt Hackathon from last year. We managed to get a workable product out the door, but it was still lacking most of what we sought out to create from the start. Here are the problems we sought to answer and what we built to address them: ⏱ Speed - Current solutions took too long to set up an account, build your kit and share it. Our average time to completion is under 10 minutes. 😇 Best practices - A press kit should have all assets laid out on a page with clearly labeled descriptions and captions. Our templated kit breaks out everything you need with hints and walkthroughs to guide to you to completion. 💸 Cost - A press kit with all the bells and whistles to make any journalist happy is available at zero cost. We are the only product offering a free tier with no trial and no credit card required. Paid plans offer additional functionality like custom domains and unlimited asset uploads. 🤯 Ease of use - There is no separation between the press kit that you craft and the one that is displayed. We have a WYSIWYG editor with a toggle that allows you to switch between the edit and live kit instantaneously. We're building a suite of products for startups interested in tackling what some view as a necessary evil: PR outreach. In many ways, we need to solve for two markets: journalists and the people contacting them. Our goal is to bridge that gap with elegant tools that meet everyone's needs with the least amount of friction. Press kits are our first product offering and a necessary component of any size company, large or small. Let us know if you have any feedback and doesn't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. 💌 Thanks! Edit: Managed to forget a few example kits! Demos: Customers: https://samboat.presskite.com

I love the concept! Is there an option that once your press kit is created, you can select to send it to journalists that fit your industry and location?

@jl_fausto Hey Jose! That's on the product roadmap (but if you sign up for the "Startup" plan you can get access ahead of everyone else) 😉

Hey Chris / Trey, You are my guinea pigs for a new video series I am thinking to start where I take a deeper dive in to the products live on Product Hunt. It's a basic review type of video with some honest feedback. There is a lot of room for improvement in my formatting and otherwise but right now I'm just putting something out there. Hope it helps you in some way!

@colinwinhall Hey Colin, thanks for the review! The ups and downs of the video were awesome. I watched it in one go and I'll review again later. I generally agree with the feedback and it's nice to see a fresh take on it. Thanks for this. 😃

@colinwinhall This is a great video, Colin. I actually learnt a lot about how I should present information on my website and what to avoid. Hope I can get some review from you as well when we launch :)
