Many companies and advertisers who want to work with your brand wants to know more information about you and your brand.

They have to depend on various tools, traffic estimator services to get the data, which is not 100% accurate information.
Once your blog gets recognition among blogosphere, you will get a lot of enquiries regarding paid reviews, advertisement space, and social campaigns from clients.
You can make your prospect clients happy by telling your story through media kit which gives them complete picture about you and your brand.
So I will jump into our present topic to discuss further.
What is Media Kit & Why we need it?
A media kit is a way to inform your clients about accurate facts and statisticsabout your blog in a legitimate way, it allows marketers to know about your brand information by you without depending on third party services.
Here you can write what topics your blog covers, how many followers you have on different social media platforms, what are your services and prices you are offering, examples of your present collaborations with different brands, examples of your paid reviews and so on.
You can raise a question, is it mandatory to have a media kit?
For this question, my answer is Yes and No
It is not mandatory to have a media kit, but if you have one, it looks in a professional way how you are dedicated to your services, and you can convey the message to your potential advertiser or client why he should work with you.

Now brands are considering social media influence of the blogger to estimate the value of the brand so add all your social media profiles information with the number followers.

Add your social media following growth information comparing with the last year, try to add all the positive things you are doing to improve your brand.
Email subscribers are loyal readers of your blog, advertisers even know that if you have a decent number of subscribers they can get some sales conversions with your list itself, so include your subscribers stats on your media kit.
Showing growth stats of your email list will allow marketers to predict the future of your brand and it will force them to think how important you are for their brand.
Testimonials are very important to build trust, if you have already worked with some brands then include those brand logo in testimonial part if you are not worked with any company before then try to offer your service for free to some companies and take permission to display their logo on your blog.
