DIY Media Kit + Template

image

Hey y’all !!! A big topic in the blogging world right now is Media Kit’s. When I 1st started blogging I had no idea what that was and definitely didn’t think I needed or wanted one.

I currently only use my media kit for product reviews. I love new things I’ve never tried and its fun for me. So far I have reviewed beauty products, jewelry, party in a box, candles, and even a awesome dreamcatcher.

What I found that personally works for me:

• Always give them a date that you will have the post up by and don’t let them down.

• I always give my partners tons of social media shares along with my review.

• Just like bloggers time is valuable so are these companies and small shops that partner with us. The collaboration has to benefit both parties.

• I never pitch to anyone to review something if I don’t truly think I would love it and would recommend it.

• Take time and do research and don’t treat the companies all the same and all with a generic letter.

Think of it as your blog resume. Putting time and thought into your media kit is important.

If you want to review products, work with brands or have ads. Your media kit will explain & showcase your blog and save time on back and forth communication.

Few things to remember:

• One page in my opinion is sufficient the companies / people we pitch to are busy and need to take one look & be impressed.

• Always include social media links. That does not mean you always have to include # of followers especially for newer blogs may be best to leave it out. (At least until it’s asked for).

• Always save and send your media kit in a PDF file.

    This is great post! I only recently got my Media Kit sorted out after putting it off for so long! I had heard of them, but didn't really know what to include. I have a basic one now, but I'm going to be looking through your template to see if I can improve mine! :D

    Thank you for the printable and advice! I birthed my blog in October so I haven't felt I needed a media kit yet, but everyone tells me that I should have one no matter what so when I need one, I'm not scrambling to create it. I had no clue where to even begin until now!

    This is a great template - a media kit has been on my TO DO list for awhile. Is this an editable doc? So far I have not been able to enter my own info. Glad I found this on the Mom Blog Party!

    Hey I don't think this doc is set to let anyone edit it. It's on read only :( is there any way to change that?
