Online Media Kit For Promotion & Publicity
You will need to know how to format a WORD Document with graphics
What is an Online Media Kit? An author expert online media kit is similar to a traditional media kit and has many of the same pages contained inside. However, an online media kit is one document that is in a PDF format. It is attached to an email to be used when a producer or journalist asks for more information about you. The benefit of having an online media kit ready to go is that it saves time in the booking process. Rather than waiting for a traditional media kit to be mailed to the media out and delivered to the correct person you, your media contact can open you PDF immediately.
Have a consistent design on each page of our online media kit.
Each page should have a header containing the following info:
· Name of expert or author
The point of any media kit is to SHOWCASE your talent, your platform and your area of expertise with the objective of securing the media opportunity, media segment or your speaking event.
Create a compelling media kit! What is a compelling media kit? Your media kit is designed to set you apart from the others and showcase your professionalism, credentials, areas of expertise and your platform. Your online media kit should be designed to make you the best choice for the media opportunity under consideration. Your online media kit should give the media an idea of your vast knowledge and create certainty that you are their best choice.
What is certainty? The knowledge that a producer has when he or she knows that you will be an excellent expert—you know what you are talking about and you proved it in the pages of your media kit by providing them with the evidence they need to feel confident in booking you.
So imagine this: A competitor of yours sends their info via email to the media as just a normal, everyday email with perhaps a signature line. And your info arrives completely packaged with everything the media knows to book you. Lots of work with the first expert – not lots of work with you. Plus you can tailor your media kit to fit the needs of the media at any time.
You can guide your media contact through your kit and point out certain areas that you especially want them to notice. Many times you can close the deal right now the phone – with the help of your online media kit of course as again, you have provided your media contact with the certainly they must have in order to book you.
Here are the pages you will need in your Online Media Kit:
1. Cover picture of your book
