Imagine if you clicked this blog and all you read was “I’ll come back to this later.” How would you feel? Perhaps disappointed and ever so slightly cheated.
It never ceases to amaze us how often people don’t bother filling in their profile properly. A lot of people will write things such as “I’ll tell you Later,” “Ask Me for more Info” or “I can’t believe I’m doing this.” This is such a waste of time! What sort of message do you thing this gives to other members? Firstly, it makes you look ignorant and lazy. If you can’t be bothered to take the time to write a few things about yourself then why should anyone else be interested in getting to know you?
Remember that your profile is there as an advert. If you write interesting things then you’ll give other people the chance to ask you about them. The more interesting and fun you sound then the more chance there is that they will contact you.
Think very carefully about what you DO say. Don’t write things for the sake of it.
As a guideline, write a few well crafted lines about yourself, followed by a couple of lines about the sort of person you are looking for. You don’t have to write an essay - too much is almost as bad as too little – but just enough to give everyone a snapshot of your personality.
Very important: Include a “Call to Action” at the end of your profile. This is a sentence that will encourage people to get in touch. This can be a direct statement, such as “Contact me now and let’s see if there’s a spark!” or “What are you waiting for? Email me !” Alternatively, it can be a question. Good examples
So take a few minute out of your busy lives now to write a better profile. You’ll see the rewards as soon as the emails start flooding in!
