    ◎數位新聞套件服務Presskit.to在無預警的情況下離線,使數百名甚至數千名藝人和營銷人員無法取得他們已使用多年的新聞工具包中的行銷宣傳素材,嘗試訪問該網站只能看到「此網站無法打開」的錯誤消息。Presskit.to於2012年推出,已經離線將近三週的時間。

    ◎Label Logic和Music Biz Weekly播客的音樂營銷人員Jay Gilbert表示「我使用Presskit.to為歌手兼詞曲創作者Jake Allen行銷。它為我們提供了一個漂亮的『模板化』B2B網站,可以發布新聞稿、自傳、照片和影片給新聞媒體和演出場館等等。我們發現該服務已經消失感到驚訝和失望,我們沒有收到通知,也無法在線上找到任何東西。」

    ◎媒體多次嘗試聯繫曾經與Presskit.to相關的任何人士,包括Presskit.to聯合創始人Ben Maitland-Lewis和Chris Cave,以及現在是專業攝影服務初創公司PrettyInstant聯合創始人之一的前技術長Douglas Rogers,但不論是通過該公司和在社群媒體上進行的詢問都沒有得到答覆。

    Digital press kit service presskit.to has gone offline without warning, leaving hundreds, if not thousands of artists and marketers without access to their promotional material.

    Presskit.to, which launched in 2012, has been offline for almost three weeks.

    The demise of the digital press kit service came without warning or any announcement to users. Attempts to visit the site by artists, music marketers and others to access press kits they have used for years nets only a "This site can't be reached" error message.

    "I used presskit.to for singer/songwriter Jake Allen. It gave us a beautiful 'templateized' B2B website to put the press release, bio, images and videos that we could send to press, venues etc," says music marketer Jay Gilbert of Label Logic and the Music Biz Weekly podcast. "We were surprised and disappointed to find that the service had simply disappeared. We received no notice and couldn't find anything online."

    Repeated attempts to contact anyone once related to the presskit.to have gone unanswered.

    Presskit.to co-founders Ben Maitland-Lewis and Chris Cave and former CTO Douglas Rogers are now among the co-founders of professional photography services startup PrettyInstant. But inquiries made via that company and on social media went unanswered.

    A phone number once associated with presskit.to has been disconnected.
