Woo! That’s a great question, friend, and rightly so. Quick answer: No.
Personally, I’ve always steered AWAY from adding prices on my Media Kit and here’s why:
1️⃣ I lose significant negotiation power
When you’re negotiating with a brand you want to have the MOST leverage as possible.
When you include prices, rather than really seeing if you’re a good fit for a partnership, brands are just going to “judge” your “level of fit” based on your rates.

2️⃣ More negotiation power = more $$$
A brand may have a budget to pay you $1,000, but if your Media Kit says you would only charge $500, then that’s what you’re going to get.
They’re not going to be like, “oh I saw your prices were $500, but….want $1,000?”
3️⃣ No two brands are the same
By adding your rates to your Media Kit you’re essentially placing a “one size fits all label” on your work when things like timeline, amount of deliverables, usage rights, and exclusivity rights are ALL going to vary on a case-by-case basis.
👉🏼 ACTION STEP: Instead of having a Media Kit with rates, create a separate RATE SHEET where you break down specific pricing, explain why you charge what you do, and what benefits a brand is going to get from each piece of content.
