Is Your Crew Connection Profile Getting You Enough Shoots?

5.25.16

Being a freelance media professional is a tough gig—but you don’t need us to tell you that. Luckily for you, your Crew Connection company profile makes advertising your business and booking shoots quick and pain free.

In the past, we’ve covered adding photos and a demo reel to improve your Crew Connection company profile. Today we’ll talk about updating the Our History section to book more shoots.

Be Yourself

The About Us area of the Our History section is where your company’s personality has the best opportunity to shine.

Are corporate interviews your speciality? Make sure your content is polished and professional. Got some killer drone shots? Don’t be afraid to brag a little about your cool new aviator title. If your team does a little bit of everything, try to keep it as brief as possible. Think of your About Us section as your cover letter where you are enticing clients to contact you.

Don’t forget to include a brief overview of your staff, your history and your specialities to lend your company credibility. If you’ve already got a website with an About Us section, now is a great time to revisit that and maybe even reuse the content on your Crew Connection company profile.

Tell An Exciting Story

A picture might be worth a thousand words, but are yours telling the right story?

Now that you’ve followed our photo tips to engage a potential client with your visuals, it’s time to seal the deal with your About Us section. Your content should tell the rest of the story that your pictures began.

Talk about your video editing studio that’s fully equipped with the latest gear. That picture of a zebra on your company profile? Let potential clients know that you travel for shoots. This is your chance to feature those services and cool little features you might not have had a chance to display anywhere else.

Don’t Forget the Details

Be sure to enter content in the Years in Business, Clients, Awards and Professional Associations fields to round out your Our History section. This content will help back up all of the claims you made in your About Us section. Just like your content, make sure your client list, awards and associations show off what you do best. Not only do these add credibility to your company profile, they show that you care about your reputation and want clients to be well-informed about you.

A Few Things to Remember

We ask that you don’t include links to your website or contact information on your company profile. Crew Connection’s system will automatically detect and remove this kind of information. Crew Connection works hard to make sure you have a steady stream of work and get paid on time. All we ask in return is that you don’t treat us like Craigslist.
