How do I add an intro video to my profile?

You've added your work experience, uploaded your portfolio, and now you want to help authors get to know you a bit better.. A great way to do that is to add short introduction video to your profile 🎬

Lights, camera, action!

Before you press record, make sure you’ve prepared what you’d like to say. Here are a few more pro tips:

Sit at arm's length and look into the camera;
Try to keep the light in front of you, not behind;
Start with your first name, services you offer, and your work experience;
You can also talk about your favorite project to date; and
Be concise — you only have 30 seconds.

**Note** Please do not refer to your personal website, social media handles and last name in your video. As explained in our FAQ here, communication outside of the Reedsy platform can expose you to risks beyond our control and may leave both clients and professionals exposed if a dispute arises. Any information that might help an author make a decision regarding a potential collaboration should be included in your profile. There should be no need to direct a client off of the platform.

How do I import the video to my profile?

Once you've recorded the perfect take, go to your “EDIT PROFILE” button on the Reedsy dashboard and scroll to the section titled “Introduce yourself with video.”

Drag-and-drop the file from your computer, or click the link "select from your computer" to browse for the file. Our team will do a quick review, and once we approve your video, you'll have your personal introduction clip visible on your profile!
