What should a media kit contain?
First up, before we get to the media kit template - let's talk about what to put in the media kit.
Depending on your publication, blog or the type of media space you have to sell, which could be your social following - this list may change. But there are a few basic items which should always be included to make sure your media kit is effective as possible.
- Cover page - Include your logo, and the date it was last updated
- Company overview - This is your about us section; a brief summary of your site or platform and readership demographics
- Quick facts - Site unique visitors, page views, subscribers, social media followers, listeners and viewer stats from Google Analytics
- Results - Demonstrate effectiveness with stats, case studies, and testimonials
- Audience insights - Share information on your demographics, target audience, and include audience specifics and differentiators
- Advertising options - Descriptions of advertising inventory of media space with examples. More on this below.
- Contact details - Make it clear what readers should do next. We want them to buy, so we need to make it easy for them to do that.
Note that items #2 - #5 above can consolidated together in an 'About' section and that #6 will probably need a number of pages to showcase your advertising inventory well.
