How do I make my profile 100% complete?

You’ve completed all sections of your profile, but it still says it’s incomplete? Here’s how to fix this! 🔧

Fill in all sections

Make sure you’re filled in every field in your profile, including:

A profile picture — this should be a clear headshot (and don’t forget to smile!);
A short description — which will be the first thing authors see before clicking to see your full profile;
An overview — to introduce yourself, highlight your best experience, and explain your work process.
A service — that which you’re offering, along with some sub-services so that we can make more accurate suggestions.
A genre — for each of which you should have at least two books you’ve worked on.
Your work experience — share your most relevant publishing industry placements and jobs..
Books in your Portfolio, Gallery, or Projects section — only those related to your specialties and listed service.

Depending on the type of services you offer, you’ll need a specific number of books, projects, and/or images in your profile.

Editors and Ghostwriters need at least 5 books in their portfolio.
Designers need a combination of 10 books and gallery images, with the exception to Illustrators.
Marketers need a combination of 5 projects and gallery images.
Web developers need a combination of 5 projects and gallery images.

The progress tracker at the top of the profile page shows you how complete your profile is. In order to get 100% you will need to add at least 10 books (though you can submit your profile for review at 88% with 5 books).
