How Many Pages Should A Media Kit Be?

By Tiara Ogabang

A media kit is a collection of press about yourself or your brand. But how many pages should it be?

This article will discuss how many pages a media kit should be viewed as a package instead of a one-off newspaper clipping.

These days, a media kit is the primary marketing tool brands use to get the word out about themselves. By creating a quality media kit, you can generate press from local and/or national outlets.

This saves time for brand owners because they don't have to do everything all at once.

Finding and contacting potential media

Finding and contacting potential media

Once you've put your media in the middle of the right channels, the hard work starts. You have to send out your media in the hopes they'll read it.

This can be a daunting task because there are tons of outlets to choose from. These media don't respond to everyone.

A simple way to handle this is to narrow the list down, so the work becomes easier.

You don't want to send your press release to every outlet you can think of instead of target outlets who will definitely be interested in your pitch.

These people will allow you to present your media kit.

How to connect with your target

Communicating with your audience is key to any marketing or advertising strategy. In business, the whole point is to gain access to a market by going after it.

A business pitch is a way to draw people to your website, your social media account, or any other entry point to your brand.

Here are some points to consider:

  • Brand name
  • Slang terms for words
  • Key messages
  • Problems you solve

Key messages should be short, to the point, and relate to your target audience. Keep them short enough for someone to skim them.

Problems you solve should be more complex and should appeal to your audience's fears, anxieties, or feelings.

Key messages can be broken down into subtopics. For example, if you sell a shampoo brand, your key message might be "Shampoos: The New Anti-aging Factor."

Outreach and Twitter

Outreach and Twitter

Twitter is often perceived as a platform where celebrities, public figures, and politicians don't need to do any research. But many people use Twitter as a way to advance their careers and grow their fan bases.

A great way to have some social media platform is to connect with other influential people.

Most people are connected with brands they like, but finding the right way to approach them can be difficult.

What you should do is to identify those people who have power over your target audience. That could be your target audience, your client base, or someone you admire.

Then ask for an interview or reach out to let them know you're a fan. Just like all of these things, finding these individuals shouldn't be complicated.

Influencer marketing

Influencer marketing is an especially effective form of marketing because it helps grow your reach with minimal investment.

A study by LinkShare found that a few influential bloggers worldwide earn more money than the top YouTube stars. If you're the kind of person who enjoys this kind of content, it's a must to learn about influencer marketing and how it can help your brand grow.

Properly segmenting your audience.

Segmentation is when you separate your audience into segments.

For example, if you're selling your product to women between the ages of 25 and 40, you should segment your audience by looking for 20 to 25 women between 25 and 40 who live in the United States.

By segmenting your audience this way, you can create a marketing plan for each audience. You will know exactly who to send your campaign to and what type of content to send to them.
