How to create a winning independent professional profile 🏆
When a project, question or request has been posted on Wizly’s smart marketplace platform, Wizly matches the request with your profiles to search and filter out the best profiles. Your profile needs to be optimised to come up as a possible match for companies.
5 ways to optimise your profile on Wizly for lead generation
- Optimise your bio & integrate your calendar
Wizly gives you the power to customise everything on your Independent Professional profile.
Your bio is important. As you can see from the image above, everything on your profile is customisable - your name, title, company, location, bio, topics, domains and expertise need to be current and pin-pointed so your skillset is clear.
Integrate your calendar and unlock Advice packages. Add your Calendly details- it is free and no data from your existing calendar is shared with others. It helps Users and Companies book a call directly with you. See how to do this HERE.
Create advice packages. You can now customise your pricing on the platform for calls and also add different ‘Advice’ packages with more details on what Users or Companies can expect on the call. Users need to know what they can get for the 30 or 60 mins - please state the outcome of the call for the user.
Answer user-generated questions on the Q&A tool
Q&A is a great way to get the community more vibrant, get more users to engage, and bring in more thought leadership. Independent Professionals are encouraged to answer 4-5 questions a month, if not more. Each answer generates its own shareable link with your image and audio. You can share these links easily for your own brand building.
Users and Companies can listen or watch your audio or video answer to questions and even react and rate it. Creating and sharing knowledge assets is a simple two-step process on Wizly.
