What should I put in my profile?

Your profile is the first thing potential customers see when browsing Listings. Having a professional, structured and informative bio lets you stand out from the crowd and will attract more bookings. Here are a few tips for creating a great profile:

Use headers/categories: Have separate sections that go into aspects of your credentials and work history. It’s a good idea to have a heading for education, a heading for work experience and a heading for other qualifications This allows a potential customer to quickly scan your profile.

Be concise: Don’t waffle or use flowery language. It adds nothing to your profile and may just confuse customers. That being said, don’t skimp out on detail if it’s important. Specify what kind of projects you have worked on, where you worked and what kind of services you provide

Include a pricing guideline: Lingo Ledger will eventually implement a feature that allows you to charge extras for a service once you have received more details about the service. With this in mind, it’s a good idea to have basic outline of the charges you might levy for translating certain documents such as drivers licences, birth certificatesor interpreting at conferences etc. This gives a potential customer more information and makes you look more professional.
