Monetizing my blog with a Brand New Media Kit {Review}

Media Kit word cloud

I have mentioned before that when I started this blog, it was all about a hobby and something fun to do. I didn’t know where it would take me, but I thought at most I would get to try out some new products and tell everyone what I thought about them. I thought there may be a little money in putting up advertisements once I started getting some traffic to my blog, but I wasn’t sure how I would feel about flashing ad all over my page. Now that I’m a little over a year into blogging, I’m learning a few more of the ropes and I’m learning more how to monetize my blog. One of the necessities I have learned about with monetization is the need for a blogger to have an awesome media kit.

I have been thinking about a Media Kit for my blog for a while now. You may have noticed that I just went through a redesign of the site and have new pirate characters to show off. The design is still slightly a work in progress, but with the new design I have new goals. I needed a Media Kit and I wanted it to ROCK!!

WOMinfo Media Kit Templates

As part of the initial launch of WOMinfo, they are creating Media Kits at the most amazing prices I’ve seen!! I was given the opportunity to order my very own media kit for review and tell all of my other blogger friends what I think. There were so many media kit options to choose from that it actually took me a little time to choose and I had to call in my husband’s creative eye for help.

“We feel that having a good media kit is a must for every professional blogger so we set out to make it as easy as possible! Now you can buy these template sets that are pre-made in a variety of different style and color choices that you can then update yourself whenever necessary.” – WOMinfo

Media Kit from WOMinfo

WOMinfo has six media kit designs to choose from and each design has multiple color schemes. I chose Media Kit Template Set 2 and asked if I could use the colors of my new blog design. As you can see above, they were able to use my existing header and my profile icon (my fave pic of my and the boy) as well as bits and pieces of my blog information. The form that I completed was very thorough and I was able to fill in all of the information that I wanted on my media kit. There were even questions about stats that I didn’t even know existed (i.e. Compete) and instructions on how to find out my demographics (no, I didn’t know that already).

I sent my form with all of the information to WOMinfo on September 2 and had my first draft back on September 4 and there were a lot of places that I put comments like “help me figure this out, please”. :) I only had two small edits, one where I had listed a price incorrectly and the other had to do with some custom coloring (because I’m slightly high maintenance with my colors :P). So, there it is above and…

I am in love with my media kit!!

WOMinfo did a great job on the kit and it came back to me in a pdf file that I was able to upload to my blog. I put it on a password protected page so I can send that out to interested companies. I have had a few requests in the past and just typed out some prices and information, but now I feel grown up and more professional to be able to send out my media kit when requested!!
