How to write effective entrepreneur profiles and bios

The most important element of writing an effective entrepreneur profile is to define the audience and to understand why they may read the profile. Entrepreneurs need to determine whether they are writing profiles and biographies towards investors, prospective employees, the media, potential customers or to others in business. If targeting investors your entrepreneur profile will need to be more financially driven, focused on your expertise in business, identify your sales track record and focus more on the profitability of the entrepreneur and business. If you are seeking a potential employee, you will need to emphasize your leadership skills, teamwork skills and genuine ability to manage and care for people in their business. For attracting the media and potential customers you will need to outline the uniqueness of your products and services, key achievements, general benefit to society and the problems you solve. For all other readers you will need to first understand what they want and then direct your profile in that direction. Always utilise words which appeal to your readership in a positive and encouraging / motivational manner. At the end of the day you need to emotionally and logically appeal to your readership so that they may review your products and services.


In Summary

As a general guide your entrepreneur profile should be a concise description and be provided in the form of storytelling. It is important to establish likability and a sense of journey in business. An entrepreneur should share his or her proud achievements, honours and rewards of being in business from both a professional and personal stance. Everyone likes an encouraging story, therefore the entrepreneur profile should focus on the problems he or she solved in the process of his or her business and how their business truly excites them.
