How To Set Up A Profile: Tips And Tricks

You will be expected to create profiles for many different reasons throughout your life. Some will be for your entertainment while others will be necessary for you to attract clients and make a living. In any case, the process should be undertaken carefully if you want to make a good impression. Here are a few tips and tricks that can help you with this.

  • Have a good idea of who you are
  • Describing something that you do not fully understand is always difficult. For instance, how can you describe love or unadulterated hate? In any case, if you are not sure of yourself, you will not be able to explain yourself to others. You may even find yourself describing someone else which is a very bad idea. This can lead you to attracting the wrong type of client or date or student. Know who you are so you can get what you are truly looking for.

  • Know how to show off your best attributes
  • Once you are sure of who you are you can select those traits that are your best. Are you very trustworthy? Do you have a very slow fuse? These can work in your favor so make sure that they feature prominently in the profile. If you overdo it however, it will sound as if you are overconfident so know when to tone it down.

  • Know how to make your flaws seem like good features
  • Everyone has flaws and it’s not a bad idea to admit to them. Just make them sound good. If you are very frank, call yourself honest. If you are always late, call yourself free spirited. There is always another way to say something, pick the better one.

  • Have trustworthy people who will vouch for you if asked to
  • Some profiles work especially well with the word of a trusted person to back them up. If you are writing in one of those situations, be sure to include the names and contact information of people who think highly of you.

  • Select the best picture
  • Most profiles give the option to use a picture. If you do not include a picture, people may think you have something to hide. If you do include a picture, and you should, make sure that it is one that is taken in good lighting. Save the filters for other applications if they distract from your appearance.
