A media kit is one of your gateways to working with potential advertisers and brands as a blogger.
What is a media kit?
It’s a document that shows key facts and blog stats aimed at advertisers, marketers and brands you would like to collaborate with. Your media kit can include prices for your time and services.
What should be in your media kit?
Biography – your potential clients want to know about you and your blog. Remember to include how old your blog is, what you write about and who your blog readers are.
Photographs – Use a headshot or photograph of yourself, your blog logo, tagline and other recent blog post photographs.
Statistics – This is something they will be interested in. Include your subscribers on your blog and email, social media, monthly views, visitors and reader information.
Graphs – Show these statistics in a graph. Show your monthly growth per category or criteria as well.
Opportunities – Show how they can work with you, which ad space you are selling and how much it costs.
Testimonials – Link to previous sponsored posts, brands and collaborations you’ve already done.
Contact Details – Let them know how they can get a hold of you to work with you.
