Like press releases, media press kits are tools that allow you to easily get information out to journalists and reporters. Gathering all useful information together in one place will make it easier for the media to find what they want and to send some good publicity your way. It’s an opportunity for your small business to make a lasting impression and really shine. These days, many businesses are opting to distribute press kits online.
Press kits can take time and money to create and distribute, so it’s important to be thoughtful when you assemble it. Here are a few things to create a press kit that really gets the job done.
- A Bio of Your Company. Include a document that tells your brand story. This could be a fact sheet with background information about the company. A short biography of each of the key players is also a great addition.
- Visuals. Images and video are a powerful way to keep an audience’s attention. Provide your company logo, photos of your business at work, and links to video of any speeches or televised events.
- Press releases. No press kit is complete without recent news about your company. Include press releases about events and product updates. You can easily distribute press releases by ordering a premium press release distribution package on our online order page for just $99.
