Why You Need A Media Kit
If you’re a blogger, it is inevitable that you will be looking for your audience. Whether that is a female demographic between 18 and 24 or football mad blokes over 45. Your audience is a huge part of your blog’s identity and its purpose.
Once you’ve found your audience and they are engaged, you’re probably going to want to do more, offer more and give them everything you have. But, in this life, nothing good comes for free. That’s where making money from blogging comes in.
To see a return on your huge investment of time, resources, creativity and patience, it’s always nice to see some money rolling in. That’s where your Media Kit comes in.
Your Media Kit is your business card. It can be used to show your readers who you are as well as to pitch to brands with your stats and services.

But, the most important reason for having a Kit is to help you make money!
If you can create a Kit that reflects your hard work, your top line stats and examples of the brands you’ve already worked with, your pitch will become ten times easier.
