For Your Business Profile

7 Helpful Hints…

for Writing your Business Profile

A business (or company) profile is a concise description of your business designed to capture the attention of potential customers. A well-written profile will provide all the necessary information about your business while reflecting your brand’s identity.

  1. Identify your target audience. Before you even begin writing, you need to determine the intended audience. Who are you trying to attract to your business? What do you want them to think and know about you?
  2. Make a statement. The first sentence of the profile will determine if the customer continues reading or not. It needs to provide a clear overview of who you are and what you have to offer. Highlight key points that distinguish you from the competition, such as years of experience and areas of specialized expertise.
  3. Don’t be scared to use first or second person! Using entirely third person can come across as cold. Try combining first and third person to set an approachable tone. “At NW Equine [third person], we [first person] do A and B. We can also help with C and D.” If you are an individual, it’s OK to refer to yourself as “I” and not your full name.
  4. Keep tone in mind, but add some personality. People outside of the industry should be able to easily decipher the information in your profile. Use layman’s terms rather than technical jargon. Add something that shares a bit of who you are! Showing personality helps people trust and remember you. Remember to include quotes and/or testimonials from your established clients.
  5. Edit and re-edit. Information about your business should be presented in a manner that is both attractive and professional. Read the profiles from your competitors and get your friends to proof read it. You may have to slightly edit your profile depending on the site and its audience.
  6. Remember the essentials. Include up-to-date contact information such as a phone number, person of contact, photo or logo, physical location and email address. Don’t forget your social media links! Make sure your profile includes keywords related to the industry that someone may be searching for on the Internet.
  7. Get a pro. A writer that specializes in marketing, SEO and is familiar with the current trends in social media will be able to make sure your business gets found. Remember this is an investment into your business future! A business profile can also be used on social media such as Facebook and LinkedIn, so you can get additional mileage out of the final product.
