As a blogger, that wants to work with brands, you should definitely have a media kit ready to send. Not only does a media kit make you look professional, but it also shows a potential advertiser WHY they should work with you!
Today I’m going to share with you how to make a media kit that rocks – one you can do on your own, without hiring a designer!
What is a media kit?
A media kit is a document that outlines the key facts and statistics about your blog. Your media kit should contain a short bio about you, topics you write about, how many followers you have and contact information.
Typically, a media kit is provided to advertisers and/or brands that you want to collaborate with.
When you’re just starting out, a one or two page media kit works great. As you grow in followers, have a few collaborations under your belt, and some specific collaboration service offers (and rates), you might want to have a media kit with more pages.
Note: It’s important to have your media kit represent you and your brand… from the colors, to the fonts and photos. At the end of the day, you want the brand to read and look at your media kit and think, “hey, this blog would be a great fit for us!”
Today, I’ve pulled together a few of my favorite media kit templates and the type of editing software needed to make changes.
What is a media kit template?
A media kit template is a media kit that is already designed for you, but allows you to change fonts, colors, elements and photos to match your brand.
Media kit templates can save you time and money since you won’t have to hire or wait for a designer.
