How to improve your ActiveRain Profile.

If we really believe in something, we should be willing to repeat it, repeat it often, write about it and say it out loud.

Luckily, I'm willing to do all of the above.  In fact, when it comes to your ActiveRain Profile and your profiles on all Social Media Sites, I'm back to say, You Need To Improve Your Profile.

I may have mentioned this once or twice before, but there are now several thousand new members that didn't hear it the first time and about 150,000 members that just ignored me. 

Let's try this again:

Your Incomplete Profile Is Hurting Your Image.

Points Or Profile?  Which Is More Important?

Congratulations! Your Profile Has Just Been "Featured".


Your profile is your resume.
  It's very important that you represent who you are, your qualifications, what you do and what you're capable of doing for others.  In addition, you should at least consider how to give your profile powerful SEO content and even include lead capture capabilities, if you desire.

 

Here's my Profile:  Check Me Out!  My Profile is currently valued at 5269 Points and is due for an update. 

Comparatively speaking, I have a lot of Profile Points and my profile is very long.  With enough content you will quickly gain points, but, points should not be your goal.  I've seen very powerful profiles (more powerful in terms of SEO and lead capture than mine) with many less points.   Create YOUR Profile based on appearance, content of value and functionality.

You should start with the most important content.  Make certain that your contact information is complete and accurate.  Then, provide information about who you are and what you do.  You should only provide as much information about yourself, background, experience and skills as you feel necessary.  I've provided several links to allow you or anyone an opportunity to check me out on my Website, Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube, in addition to ActiveRain.

The next thing to complete is the Testimonials.  You should include as many as possible.  These are your references provided to other prospects, that may consider working with you.  Having just one reference looks questionable, having 3 is comforting and having a dozen or more is impressive and reassuring. 

The biggest section of your profile provides an opportunity to make a sale before saying a word.  What you include can make the difference between being contacted and being dismissed.  My profile includes a lot of components, which in some cases was included to generate points.  I repeat, your primary goal should not be to max out on the point total.  You should include content that benefits your consumers.  If you offer something of value, demonstrate your uniqueness and fulfill a need, the consumer will contact you.

Remember, all blogs will lead to your profile.  What will people think when they CHECK YOU OUT?


Here are some samples of impressive profiles that will give you some excellent ideas:

.....Tammy Emineth..........Cindy Edwards................Anna Banana................Lenn Harley...........

........Mimi Foster........Sally And David Hanson....Maureen Megowan...Frank And Karen Baker...

........Debb Janes................Nyssa Smith...............Jeanean Gendron.............Jeff Dowler

Yes. Your profile is well designed and so easy to read. I guess I need to get to work on mine right away. I feel like I was filling in the blanks.

Dana, With a little time invested, YOU can have a Great Looking Profile that will be working for you 24/7.  I took a quick look at your current Profile and just sent you a brief email.  Let me know when you've pumped it up a bit and I'll check it out again.  ;-)  Good luck and best wishes always.
