Media Kits: What Is A Media Kit And Why Do You Need One?


Media Kits: What Is A Media Kit And  Why Do You Need One?

Media Kits


Having a professional looking media kit can make a huge difference for your business and, with 2019 just around the corner, now is the perfect time to create one.

What is a media kit?


A media kit is where you summarize what you do, and showcase why people/brands should work with you. It outlines the key facts and statistics about your business, and is generally given to potential sponsors/advertisers and brands/companies you want to collaborate with. 

I just updated my own media kit. Check it out:




You can find the link to a downloadable PDF version of this media kit on my Media Page.

As you can see, it includes:

- information about me
- what I do
- pricing
- my blog and social media statistics
- a few testimonials

It also has graphics to break up the text and re-enforce my brand, and my contact details. 

Have you created a media kit for your business yet?

    1. You should include some information about you/your blog, and your stats. Blogger media kits typically list collaboration options and prices for the services you offer. List all the ways a brand can collaborate with you e.g. Sponsored Posts, Giveaways, Sidebar Ads, Social Media Promotion, Product Reviews, etc... and the price for each.
      Include testimonials if you have any, as it's always better to have others praise your work.

  6. I want and use media kits but know to ALWAYS triple check and preview before publishing as there will most likely be margin issues or errors

    1. Oh you mean the media kits for books. Those are super helpful too. I always make a media kit for each of my books to send out. I like it when authors/publishers send them when requesting to be hosted on my sites too. It makes it so much easier having all the info in the one place. I agree it's always best to double check for formatting errors if doing copy and paste on any materials though.

    1. That's a great idea. Don't forget PR companies that organise book tours. And, of course, your blog readers.

  9. I really should write up a media kit. I've been running the blog for nearly four years and do product reviews as well now. I just don't seem to have the time to make one. I will try for next year.

    1. I'm so glad this helped you. Whatever your business, a media kit is a great resource to have. I actually have several different ones for different projects. I have this general one, one for each of my books, one big one for all my books (basically a general author brand media kit), and then one for Promo Day, and my Writers and Authors blog. I actually want to make some more. I still need one for my book cover designs and illustrations, and I want to do one specific to book blogging.
