Creating A Great Profile Page
Tips for creating a Professional Profile Photo:
Here’s a great blog on the kinds of things we like to see:
We couldn’t agree more, our users are looking to connect with someone who can solve their need and make their life better. You only get one chance to make a first impression!
Tips for filling out your ‘Experience’:
- Find a sweet spot. Not too specific but not too broad. No one understands your topic like you do. You know what kinds of ways in which the knowledge you have can benefit another person. You also know all the ways in which the knowledge you share can be applied. If you are teaching photography but have also owned your own studio for 20 years that information could be of great interest to someone else.
- Include any familiar brand names you’ve worked with or for, recognizable projects you’ve worked on or names of people the public are familiar with.
- If you lack a connection of familiarity, take advantage of the length time you’ve worked in the industry or studied your specific skill.
- Highlight specific situations you’ve experienced that has helped you excel at your skill.
- Highlight an instructional experience you might have in relation to your skill.
Tips for a One-liner Bio:
Great story writers employ empathy to make a quick connection with their audience. They do this through presenting the hero as a good person who has lived a messy life and has a problem. Not all of our lives are messy, but almost all of us think they are.
A great story also includes a Mentor, that’s you. We have great hope in this character because they have authority in the exact area our hero needs help and they are empathetic to our hero’s situation. Or in this case, the protege looking to take your sessions. Some quick tips to writing a powerful one-liner bio:
- Think from the readers viewpoint. Whomever it is reading your bio, they have a need for the knowledge you possess. Acknowledging what they are feeling, as real, helps them to understand you’re going to do everything in your power to help them get what they need to solve their problem. For example: “I know the Pro-Tools software set can be overwhelming” or “If you’re intimidated by all the buttons and dials on your new camera, you’re not alone”
- Establishing your authority with a statement of your many years using a certain tool or practicing a certain skill gives the protege a sense of hope you might be the one to help them out of their situation. For example “In my 20 years of woodworking I’ve completed hundreds of custom projects” or “I’ve flown my drone on over 20 films sets in the past five years”
- Finally, give them an idea of your plan. You can have them creating better logo designs, cooking better meals or getting their car back on the road sooner and better than anything else out there. So continuing on with an example from above: “I’ve flown my drone on over 20 films sets in the past five years; I can have you up and flying and making perfect landings in just two hours!!”
