you can still create a resume even if you never had a job before. A media kit in many ways, serves as a resume for bloggers. Its a way for you to introduce yourself to brands that you want to collaborate with. I once did a google search for media kits and most of then had huge numbers! thousands of subscribers and even more monthly views and visitors. I was very intimidated. Although I have been noticing some significant growth on my site my numbers are not nearly has high as I would like them to be.
I you are like me then you may think the a media kit serves no purpose and that you should wait unit you see more growth before creating one. I was recently approached by a brand to work with them on a campaign, I was a bit surprised. They wanted little ole me to work with them! The person asked me for a media kit and I had to quickly create one. I searched online for a template but found none that I liked, I also didn't want to pay for one. What was I to do?
In comes canva! Back in January I used Canva to create the flyer for my Vision Board Brunch and it was fairly simple. Canva has plenty of free templates (some cost $$) for a variety of things. I decided to use a resume template (I used a template called Karen tarte) to create my media kit and it actually turned out quite well. I used the drag and drop features to personalize it.
Things to include in your media kit
- picture(s) of you
- Name (your name, blog name, title)
- contact information
- description of you/blog/blog mission or purpose
- services you provide (create a separate document that list prices)
- stats- highlight any large numbers you have. For example I don't have a lot of subscribers on youtube but I have a lot of views
As your site is growing be sure to update the stats when ever there is significant growth. I hope this helps!
Here is a draft of my current Media Kit, let me know what you think!
