Profiles, Bios, and Intros
for Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Tumbler, YouTube, Pinterest, etc.

 

 

It's here to stay. Social media is no longer a novelty; it is now a must-have communications tool. Whether you're an self-publishing author or the head of a multimillion-dollar company, an important way to reach your audience is via one of the myriad social media vehicles. Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Tumbler, YouTube, Pinterest, etc. And new ones seem to be popping up daily. While each has its own specific purpose and tiny tweaks that makes it different, they all have one thing in common: the ubiquitous PROFILE.

 

What have you done with your profile? Does it say anything interesting about you? Does each profile say exactly the same thing? Do you seem like a fun, interesting person/business people would like to get to know better? Or did you write the trite old: George Jones arrived in Topeka in November 2005 from Toledo. He specializes in barnacle removal and cosmetic foot surgery?

 

The entire goal of a social media profile is to attract someone's attention, and keep it long enough to get them to want to know more about you. You cannot do this if your profile is boring; if it's same-old same-old; if it's full of spelling errors; if you come on too strong; if you sound forced or unnatural; if you're offensive, even without meaning to be; or if you're just too over-the-top in any way.

 

Do you really want social media to work for you? If so, you want a profile that's guaranteed to get attention because it stands out from the rest!

 

Let us rewrite your profile today!

The Rules

1. You cannot lie about anything. They always find out, and then you're screwed. Come on, folks! It might be fun to pretend in Second Life ... but if you are (or intend to become) a successful author, you want people to take you seriously, so do not misrepresent yourself. Don't boast clients or acquaintances you don't have. We promise we can make the truth much more interesting than a lie!

 

2. You must be willing to be original. Trust us original works. Don't try to copy every other Jane, Mary, or Lisa out there. Figure out what makes you different, and play that up. Not only will it make you stand out as different, it also will go a long way toward attracting the kinds of clients, customers, and friends you want and that's what this is really all about, isn't it?

 

3. Quirky is cute, but within limits. Don't post anything you don't want to come back to you later. Of course, a lot of this depends on the industry you're in. If you're a CPA, it might not hurt to let your hair down a little bit but posting photos from your recent excursion to Baker Beach might make you a little difficult to take seriously. Just take care not to do anything that will damage the professional image you've worked so hard to create.

 

We Can Make You Exceptionally Attractive!

If writing's not your strong suit, or if you're just burned out trying to come up with enough new and different ways to say the same thing about yourself for the 127th time, hire us to help you out! E-mail today so we can get started.

 

Your Investment

Your cost for us to rework your profile into a something that promises to attract attention is just 50 cents a word, 300 word minimum.  Includes one free revision providing that the changes amount to less than 15 % of the total text. E-mail us today to get started!

 


You are writing the story
of your life, one moment at a time.

Doc Childre and Howard Martin

 

 

   
  That's a mighty big promise — how can you make such a guarantee?
 
 
     
 

Well, to be honest, we're that good. But on a more believable note, Laura was an accomplished single gal who did her share of dating. That all changed on July 31, 2009, when she met her future husband through an ad on Craigslist. That's right — Craigslist, the same place you buy scalped concert tickets and sell your broken down laptops. Yes, there are a LOT of creepos out there, so you have to be smart and protect yourself (e.g., tell someone you're going on your date, meet in a public place, trust your instincts, etc.). But we found that smart, funny ads are a great way to weed out the weirdos. Most of the trolls who want just one thing from you aren't going to bother with an ad that has context, humor, and depth.

 

Here's the ad Laura used to catch Johnny K's attention:

 

TEXT OF AD

 

The happy couple got married on St. Patrick's Day 2011 in lovely Sedona, Arizona and now live with their 3 dogs and very tolerant cat.

 

We can do the same thing for you.

 
     
   
  The Rules
 
 
     
 

1. You cannot lie about anything. They always find out, and then you're screwed. Or maybe not screwed, as the case may be. OK in trouble. Suffice it to say, lying's bad. Don't do it. Say you're a guy and you're 5'7" if you ever meet her in person, she is going to know you are not 6 feet tall. OK? If you're a gal and you're built like a Mimi from The Drew Carey Show, you cannot describe yourself as having an athletic build. Not even close. Use your common sense. They're not going to fall in love with you over the phone and forgive you later for your "little white lie." They're going to think you're the lying jerk that you are and you will continue to perpetuate all the ugly myths out there that no one "real" ever posts on those dating sites.

 

2. You must be willing to be original. Trust us original works. Don't try to copy all the other guys and gals out there. Figure out what makes you different, and play that up. Not only will it make you stand out as unique, it also will go a long way toward attracting someone who likes you for you and that's what this is really all about, isn't it?

 

3. You must 'fess up that you had help with the ad. Look it's not that big a deal. Even Einstein was a really crummy speller. In fact, they thought he was retarded for a long time. So you can't spell. No problem. But they're gonna know, the first time you ever send a follow-up e-mail. So when they ask, "Did you get help with your personal ad?" tell the truth. If any of that last sentence confuses you, please see #1: You cannot lie about anything.

 

4. You may not steal our sample ads and try to pass them off as your own. Again, if any of this confuses you, please revisit #1: You cannot lie about anything.

 

5. You must let us know about your successes with your ad. We know it works, so we're in this with you. Let us know how you do. Maybe invite us to the wedding? At the very least, when anyone asks how you came up with your very clever ad, send them our way!

 
     
   
 Sample Ads
 
 
     
  We're not exaggerating or lying. This really does work. Did we mention that Laura dated a lot before she met John? Well, most of those dates came through Craigslist. Here are a few sample ads that worked:

If you want us to write it from scratch, we can do that, too. The cost for us to write or rework your ad into a gem that promises to attract attention is just 50 a word, with a 100-word minimum.  Includes one free revision providing that the changes amount to less than 20 percent of the total text.
