Seven Seconds Of Fame | Media Kit Showcase

April 11, 2016 10:30 am Published by

You only have seven seconds to make a first impression, that’s according to a blog post about the benefits of having a credible Media Kit. As an influencer it’s imperative that you use all the technology available to you to make those seven seconds count. Being an influencer means you get to spend your days creating content about topics you love. It also means mastering the art of marketing yourself to brands, which isn’t always easy.

While Webfluential brought you the technology such as Booked By Webfluential and the Media Kit, it’s up to you to take advantage of this by ensuring your Media Kit is complete and eye-catching. If your Media Kit doesn’t spark any interest, chances are marketers will  pass on by to the next profile.

To give you some inspiration, we are featuring a few influencers who really nailed it in just seven seconds. We’re incredibly proud of the influencer community we’ve built at Webfluential and even more proud of some of these Media Kits!

That is all for today’s showcase! By displaying all the work you have done for brands, marketers are able to see what you’re made of. So don’t be shy to take advantage of all the options available to you right in your Webfluential dashboard. If you want to get really creative you can even tweet your Media Kit directly to brands – letting them know you’re up for collaboration.

To help create your Media Kit that will give you the seven seconds of fame you deserve, we’ve created a basic checklist for you to follow:  

    1. Make sure you tell marketers what they want to know
    2. How big is your audience? The Media Kit allows you to showcase your following in a neat and presentable way. Who is your audience and how do they align with their brand?
    3. Update your Media Kit regularly and show marketers what content you are capable of producing.
    4. Make use of all the customizable options so that your Media Kit stands out from the crowd – like custom URLs, backgrounds, content etc.
    5. Toot your own horn and tell them why you stand out, even if you do it through featured tweets. Brands aren’t going to know how great you are unless you can tell them and have your Media Kit as your evidence.

Have you set up your Media Kit yet? If so Tweet us a link using #TeamWebfluential and we’ll share it with our audience.
