While you could argue that there may not be a need for the traditional press kit, you cannot deny the fact that you will need to have an electronic press kit. Electronic press kits are far more advantageous for musicians to have these days than the traditional press kits and there are a few reasons for that.
One reason is because they are more efficient to distribute. You can send a single press kit out to many different people with only really a touch of a button. These are also a cost-effective way for you to get your press kits out since you do not have to worry about things like printing or shipping costs. The last big benefit that you get through electronic press kit is that you are not limited by media. You can include videos, games, or other types of media directly into your press release.
