How to remove your Ace Media pitch pack

I’m a huge fan of anything that checks that you are genuine in life. In the past I have shared screenshots of my earnings on websites such as Clixsense. I have shared screenshots of big wins on matched betting – like this one for £7,906.12. Clearly I have nothing against people checking what I say is genuine, however, I’m going to tell you today How to remove your Ace Media pitch pack.

I personally chose to remove my Pitch Pack from Ace Media after seeing a post from Lil Spin Pr (since removed!). They are comparing a person’s media kit to their Ace Media pitch pack. While comparisons are fine, of course, it feels a bit like the blogger is being bullied and singled out. Anyone who knows this blogger may well know who they are, from the blurry profile image. The same way people would be able to tell my blurry image of my little family.How to remove your Ace Media pitch pack - a look at some of the statistics from the pitch pack

Lil Spin PR posted a tweet, asking for people to get in touch about working together. I did so, providing my approximate page views and social media followers (20k / 12k) as I usually do. They then asked me for my Pitch pack link, which I provided. The stats on the Pitch Pack are very similar (and out of date as they are from a month ago) at 19k / 11.7k. What disappoints me about them using this method is that while it is fine to check that someone has genuine stats, of course, they don’t take in to consideration that Ace Media does NOT update daily. In my case my data has improved compared to the data displayed on the pitch pack, as it has pretty much every month for the last year or so.

    Oh that is such a shame. Why would a company shame a blogger like that. It’s very unfair. I also had the email from them requesting my pitch pack and as I didn’t have one I started to fill it out last night. I will definately reconsider now. Thanks for he informative post xx

      You’re welcome. They claim it isn’t a problem as the blogger isn’t identified but that doesn’t make it ok!

    The whole thing stinks. If isnt as though the stats were massively different in the first place and depending on what you use Blogger, GA, Stat Counter and so on, they all give different figures, sometimes similar and something massively different. It is just rude, unprofessional and troll like to me x

    On the opp emails there is also a ‘remove your influencer profile’ by emailing. I’ve done that but don’t know how long it’ll take.

    This was definitely poor play. Also stats are different dependent one whether you use an average or month on month. On my media pack I state it’s the 3 month average. You can’t just look at one month because they vary so much.

      I completely agree. Thank you for letting me know! My pitch pack has gone now thankfully!

    Their post was unecssary, it shows poor taste and is unprofessional

      I completely agree. Not necessary at all.

    As many others have said, there are countless reasons why stats can differ between GA and media packs – using seasonal averages, technical issues, a slow month because of a serious personal issue. To imply that the difference can only be explained by dishonesty and a lack of integrity is sad, I think, and deeply unhelpful to brands considering using such a service.

    As a side note, I think in the interests of transparency it should be much clearer that the director of Lil Spin is also the director of the company that sells Pitch Pack.
