How to Make a Media Kit
As a prior influencer marketing manager, nothing irked me more than a chaotic brain-dump of an email from folks hoping to partner with the brand. Like respectfully, you just wrote me a novel about why we should partner with you, and now you want me to do the research to figure out your follower count, engagement rate, and value to the company?

Here’s how to make a media kit that will actually catch their eye.
