Want to join Reedsy as a marketer? Here’s how you can nail your profile and access high-quality projects.

The Reedsy marketplace is home to the world’s best freelance publishing professionals — and marketers are no exception. Top marketers can find indie authors to create long-term partnerships with here, so how can you also find and foster such working relationships? With a spot-on profile, of course.

Let’s take a look at three successful marketers who did it just right.

1. Michael Doane Builds a Rapport from the Get-Go

In his overview, Michael addresses authors directly, so as to form a closeness from the very beginning. He shares his story as an author himself frankly and then ends with a question that’s not difficult for authors to answer: “Are you ready to find your audience, connect with readers, and sell more books?” How can you say no?

2. Julia Pidduck Uses Unique Projects To Stand Out

Julia is all about “show, don’t tell.” Her Projects section to highlight both the breadth and the depth of her experience. She covers several different genres, showing that her knowledge is flexible and incredibly useful to a lot of different authors.

For each project, Julia starts with the brief, describes her path of action, and then shares the outcomes. If good results don’t convince an author to send a marketer like Julia a request then nothing will!

3. Shannon Donnelly is Concise

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

A focused short description: In just a few sentences, she spotlights her specialties and her experience with big publishing houses.
A solid work experience section: Here again, with just one sentence for each position, Shannon effectively describes what she has achieved.

Three extra tips:

Clearly describe what services you offer. Are you a SEO wizard, an email marketing guru, or a “big-picture” master? Detail the types of services you provide and what they mean in order to help your future clients decide if you're the right fit.
No book marketing experience? It’s okay! Most of our freelancers have worked in publishing before, but it’s not a requirement to join the marketplace — you just need some sort of marketing experience. 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 illustrate your impact. For each project, explain the initial brief, the approach you took, and the results you got. The more tangible the results, the better.
