Consumers make purchasing decisions based on star ratings because they can see how other consumers have determined a value or worth. Therefore, it is important to rank high to appeal to potential clients.
Rankings tell whether someone should invest in what is being offered. If there are two services of similar nature and only one is highly ranked, it will generate more traffic than the one that is low ranked, or not ranked at all. This is the law of peer reviews; if everyone else is going there, I should too!

Creating a good bio is easy using this technique.
First, don’t think of it as bragging, think of it as a business introduction. You want to convey enough information to let the other person know how you can help solve their problems, without getting too caught up in minor details.
It is a good idea to put together a few talking points that convey the most important aspects of who you are. Here are some techniques to help you narrow down what is essential, and to avoid unproductive information.
- Keep it simple, but interesting - focus the talking points
- Tell why you are doing what you do – what led you to start the company
- Make it relevant to clients – how can they relate to the information? What do you have in common
- How can you help clients – what problem does it solve; pain relief, stress reduction, etc.
- What makes you different than others that provide this service?
Then go back and pull out the most crucial information from each area and create a new paragraph. Now reread it. Your goal is to develop a piece of writing that flows well and stays on the right track: why the client should pick you.
I like to write, read, edit, and then read it out loud. If I can't get through it smoothly, it isn't finished. If I get lost along the way, I need to edit it, and if I find it boring others will too.
Keep working on it until you have something that speaks true to you, and then save it for use on profiles you create. It will make your talking points consistent, and readers will begin to recognize you across multiple platforms.

All relationships go through necessary first steps that determine whether there is a connection between the parties. It is important you create the right impression to ensure those introductions are productive and successful.
The first thing people notice is visual. Whether you meet in person, or someone is looking at your information online, a picture speaks volumes about your professionalism. Although you shouldn't "judge a book by the cover," most will have an initial assessment of where to categorize you within their mental library. It saves time and effort if you know what your target market expects, and then cater to their needs, even if it is just a little bit.
It is essential to take your time building an online profile. You are not just entering data and moving on. You are creating that first visual, an introduction, and hoping to make someone want to explore further.
- Pick the best graphics, write the best biography. Telling the story takes practice. Don't be afraid to go back and make changes. Does it reflect who you are now? Does anything need to be added or deleted? You may miss new clients if your latest product or service isn't listed.
- Check for typos and clarity. Make sure it reads well and flows smoothly. Minor adjustments can greatly increase your leads.
- Update Credentials. Has anything expired? Consumers will notice if your information is out of date.
- Use valid contact info. Only list phone numbers and email addresses you actually monitor. I once had a client who used an email he "never checked". Why show clients a door you aren't going to open??
