A crucial step to maximizing your exposure as an Expert Author.
You’ve probably heard the terms “Author Photo” and “Author Bio.” You may even know a little bit about your “Extended Author Bio.”
What you may not know is how these items are related and, more importantly, the value of filling in your whole Author Bio.
Every author has an Author Bio that contains a list of their published articles, but it’s surprising how many authors haven’t taken advantage of the rest of their bio by filling in more about themselves.
Once you write and submit an article, the link to your bio shows up on every article right below the Resource Box.
Making a Public Profile
Filling out your public profile is the quickest and easiest way to give readers a place to find more information about yourself. Here is the 3-part process for completing your Author Bio:
- Log into your EzineArticles Expert Author Account.
- Upload an Author Photo [learn how].
- Fill out as much of the Author Bio Form as you can [learn how].
The more boxes you fill in on the bio form, the better. By uploading your Author Photo and filling in as much information as possible in the bio form, you’ll also automatically get an Extended Author Bio. You can use your Extended Bio to share things like:
- Website/Blog URLs
- Info About You and Your Company
- Social Networking Links
- Links To Products You’re Selling
Remember, if you forgo filling out your bio, you’re essentially leaving FREE links on the table. This process takes a minimal amount of work, yet will help maximize the traffic you receive through the EzineArticles system.
So, go now to your Expert Author Account and fill in as much as you can. Then, mark your calendar and come back to your bio in a few months. By that time, you may be able to fill in a few more blanks!
