What is a Digital Media Kit and What Should it Contain?

If you are an influencer, blogger or musician who is looking to make your mark in the industry today, providing real-time statistics about your personal brand is key. Nine times out of ten, when meeting with a potential sponsor or partner, he or she will ask you for up-to-date analytics about your overall reach, average engagement rates and the primary platforms on which you operate – including accurate subscriber data. If you cannot provide this information immediately and accurately – it could mean a sea of lost opportunities for you and your brand. This is why possessing an effective digital media kit is crucial for your success.

What is a media kit?


A media kit contains important information about your brand, blog or style of music. They are often provided to journalists to help them write stories about you – or to potential partners or record companies whose business you are trying to court. A media kit should be an aesthetically pleasing, one-stop-shop for all vital information about you and your brand.

In the past, media kits were presented in a cardboard folder and contained printed press releases, bios and glossy photographs. Today - thanks to the power of technology - most media kits contain many of these same items, but in a PDF format that can be downloaded from your personal website or attached to an email.

Most contemporary media kits are created using software like Canva or Photoshop and are static in nature. While they often look slick, the information contained within them can be inaccurate, because individual statistics - such as subscriber data - changes so rapidly. This is a big problem for contemporary influencers or aspiring musicians who are seeking to secure partnerships and record deals by providing their most updated and accurate analytics.
