The Value Behind Your Press Kit
Rise Above The Clutter with A Killer Press Kit
Your Press Kit
Sometimes it's called a press kit. Other times it's referred to as a promo package or media kit. Whatever you call it, this collection of music marketing tools will help you get more gigs, media exposure, radio airplay, industry attention and more. However, you should also know that more than 95 percent of the press kits sent out by artists, publicists and record labels end up in the trash can. Those aren't very good odds. It's not easy to get pumped up when you consider that rate of failure.
Let’s face it… first impressions do count! There's a good reason all those press kits are being ignored: Most of the promo packages clogging up the postal system are lackluster attempts at marketing. They are hastily thrown together without much thought or purpose behind them.
How Are We So Certain of This?
For 10 years PHANTOM POWER has been developing Press Kits for some of New Jersey’s most notable independent musicians. We begin our Needs Analysis process by asking musicians to provide the materials they currently use to market themselves. Unfortunately, we’ve seen enough bad media kits to make anyone's head spin. But I also recall the rare gems that caught my attention -- the well-thought-out press kits that sold me on an act's worthiness, inspired me to pop in a CD, and quickly motivated me to tell all my industry friends that this act has their act together.
PHANTOM POWER’s press kits are proven effective?
How so? Well a good litmus test would be to take a look at the attention our client’s have received.

Marketing by Design
The foundation of PHANTOM POWER’s Marketing by Design approach is to explore your goals. We begin with an in-depth interview about whom you need to reach and the messages and channels that will best help you reach them.
We then begin the writing process based on the valuable information you’ve shared. Based on a predetermined project timeline you will quickly receive a first draft of original content. We will then ask for your feedback. As we tweak your original content we are also hard at work on compiling other critical elements…
Marketing by Design
•Media coverage to date
•Incorporation of multimedia
Your second draft will include your revised original content as well as these other staples. We will again meet for a feedback session after which, per the project timeline, you will receive a third draft. And you won’t be rid of us then… We will provide your press kit in printer-friendly and electronic versions and offer tutorials on how you can make future edits. PHANTOM POWER is big into this whole teach a man to fish thing…
