How to Create

A Media Kit

Help others help you. Give them a kit of exactly what, where, and how to share the news of your Community Round.

What is a media kit, and why do I need one?

When you launch something big and exciting into the world, like a company or a product or a Community Round, it's usually a big and exciting event for your friends and community to witness! Naturally, people who support you will want to help you spread the word—but they might not actually know how.

A media kit helps your community help you. In it, you'll prepare all of your copy-and-pasteable copy, downloadable assets, handles to tag, links, and specific asks ahead of time. In its simplest form, this can just be a 1-pager on Google Docs.

Here are some templates you can use to speed up the process:

Here’s an email you can send to make the ask:

Subject: Help spread the word about our Community Round?

Hey {name, or community},

As you know, {company} is launching our Community Round on {date}. Our goal is to raise {goal amount}. To do that, we’re hoping to make a big splash on launch day and at least aim to hit {day 1 goal} on day 1. This will be a huge help for building momentum the rest of the campaign!

I know you’re busy, but if you have time on {launch date} within the 4 hour window of {start time} to {end time}, I would appreciate any help I can get from the community to spread the word.

Here are a few ways you can do that:

  1. Like, Comment on, or Share our launch posts on LinkedIn, Twitter, IG, and TikTok: the links in this doc [attached] will populate live once we post them at {start time}.
  2. Create a native post on {platform} or {platform} to help spread the word about our launch. See {GDoc} for copy and assets you can download instantly

Thank you so much for your help!
