Let's take a look at 3 successful marketers who nailed their Reedsy profile.

1. Michael Doane Builds Rapport

A killer overview helps Michael's profile stand out.

Highlights his story and builds rapport with the author
Talks directly to the author and ends with a question: “I ask you: are you ready to find your audience, connect with readers, and sell more books?” How can you say no?

2. Julia Pidduck Uses Projects To Stand Out

Look at how Julia uses projects to show the breadth and depth of her experience. For each project, Julia successfully:

Starts with the brief. e.g: "in order to promote the series, we needed to [...] build a captive audience ahead of the release of the first episode."
Describes her output. e.g: "I devised and led a detailed, data-led eCRM programme throughout the series and beyond"
Shares the outcomes. e.g: "establishing a Facebook following of 22,000 and an email marketing list of 16,000 subscribers."

3. Shannon Donnelly Being Concise

A great profile doesn't need to be long. Shannon's is a case in point. Here are two things Shannon nailed:

A focused short description: in just a few characters, her specialties stand out, and so does her experience with big publishing houses.
A solid work experience section: here again, in just a sentence, Shannon describes what she achieved in each position.

4 extra tips:

Clearly describe what services you offer: are you an SEO wizard, an email marketing guru or a “big-picture” master? Detail the types of services you provide and what they mean to help your future clients decide if you're the right fit.

Build rapport: do you have writing experience yourself? What unique insights do you have about the writing and publishing process? Show authors you're able understand their needs by speaking their language.

No book marketing experience? It's ok! Most of our freelancers have worked promoting books in the past, but it's not a requirement to join the marketplace. Add projects and show us how you helped your clients in other industries market themselves, grow their customer base or develop their brand.

Show us the numbers. On Reedsy, “Projects” are the best way to showcase your impact. For each project you add, explain the initial brief, the approach you took and the results you produced. The more tangible the results, the better.
