  • Fact sheet- one page background sheets about an event, a product, or the organization.
  • Media kit- (press kit) contains news release, fact sheets, photos, etc.
  • Advisories- (media alerts) tell assignment editors about upcoming events.

Send a fact sheet in your media kit to let the reporter know a little history on what it is that you are trying to promote. Media kits are usually places in folders but may sometimes be creative and even 3-D. An advisory answers the five W’s and H and lets the reporter know information so that he can decide if he or she would like to cover the story.
