Why Your Business Needs a Media Kit

Why Your Business Needs a Media Kit


Your business needs a media kit. The first time I heard this, it sounded like one of those things that only exist in the world of prominent corporations, but it's not. A media kit is a marketing tool that helps you professionally tell your story and tells other people what makes your business unique. You can use it repeatedly to promote your brand and build relationships with others: journalists, influencers on social media or potential clients. In this post, we'll go through everything you need to know about creating an effective media kit so that you can start using it today!

What is a media kit

A media kit is a marketing tool to get your business or product in front of potential customers. It's similar to a press kit but has different content and uses.

A media kit is more than just an extension of a press kit and rate card (a listing of services and rates), which agencies or freelancers usually provide. It offers information about your company, its history and its mission statement; it also includes work samples or experiences so that you can be seen as an authority in the field. The focus is on showcasing what makes you unique.

In addition to being helpful when pitching stories to journalists, companies can use their media kits for several purposes:

  • To market themselves through direct contact with editors at news outlets

  • To gain attention from bloggers or influencers who may write about them or share their stories with followers on social media platforms like Facebook or Twitter

Why you need a media kit now

You've probably heard the term "media kit" before, but what exactly is it? A media kit is a marketing tool that helps you present your company, products and services to journalists. It should include sections on who you are, what you do, who your customers are and why they should care about your brand.

It's essential to keep your media kit updated regularly to reflect the current state of things at your business. For example, if you have a new product launch or if there have been some significant changes in strategy at the company lately, this info needs to be included in the next version of your media kit—and any other updates!

Your media kit should also be easy to find on all channels where journalists might search for information about you—including your website (of course), LinkedIn profile pages and Twitter bio descriptions (if applicable). Suppose someone has access to Google but not social media profiles or sites like LinkedIn. In that case, links within articles written by others about yourself can help direct traffic back towards these other locations where versions of those same pieces will always exist online.

How to create a media kit

Knowing what's included in a media kit will help you sell yourself as an expert and give people the information they need to write about you.

You should create your own personal media kit, but if you don't have time or resources, outsourcing the project to First Nations Copywriter is an attractive option. Make sure any materials you use are consistent with the rest of your branding efforts and don't compromise on quality. The last thing anyone wants is something that looks like it was thrown together at the last minute!

If possible, try creating a professional-looking PDF version of your media kit so whoever receives it can easily read through all its contents on their computer without getting distracted by different formatting issues. Including high-resolution pictures on separate files or pages of the media, the kit is also helpful. This makes it easier for whoever is using the media kit to be able to use the pictures for their article.

You can use your media kit on your website, email newsletters and more.

A media kit is a powerful tool that helps you get press coverage, speaking engagements and clients. It will also boost your sales and lead generation efforts by providing prospective customers with more information about your business.

A well-designed media kit can help attract new prospects to your website through email marketing campaigns, social media and other online channels.

This is because the content of a well-designed media kit speaks volumes about how knowledgeable you are as an expert in your field. This makes people think: "If this person knows so much about their industry, then maybe they have something valuable to teach me too!"

So whether it's called a press kit or media package, or something else entirely (e.g., "influencer pack"), having one is essential if you want to attract leads and make sales online without being present at every networking event in town — which can be exhausting (and expensive if there's no end in sight).


If you have a business, you need a media kit. It's that simple. You can use it to promote your products and services on social media, email newsletters and more. If you want more readership and more engagement with your brand, then make sure you have this tool at your disposal. The best part is that First Nations Copywriter specializes in creating them!
