Create a Killer Bio: Promote the Star that You Are – presented by Fred Berns

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 @11:30 pm – 1:00 pm

MS International Charlotte
1108 Continental Boulevard, Suite F
Charlotte, NC 28273

You can’t get good clients with a bad bio. You can’t easily generate big projects and lucrative, long term relationships with an online personal profile that undersells you and fails to spell out all that you can do for your kitchen and bath clients. In these highly competitive times, it’s critical to have a powerful profile on your social media sites, your Houzz site and on your website. How to create a new bio – or tweak your current one – so that it spells out your specialness, builds a “buzz” and builds your business is what this powerful program is all about.

Attend this program and get everything you need to know to create a concise, compelling bio that will help you dramatically increase your sales and profits. Learn the “Million Dollar Word” you can use in your bio to make an instant impact and make yourself memorable. And discover the Dynamic Dozen: the 12 keys to a killer bio. If you’re like most design professionals, your current bio may be blocking rather than boosting you and disqualifying rather than qualifying you to get bigger projects from better clients. If you’re serious about taking your business and career to the next level, you need to get serious about upgrading your online promotion profile.

This enlightening and entertaining presentation will help you do that, and dramatically differentiate yourself, communicate your credibility and establish yourself as a uniquely-qualified, one-of-kind leader in your marketplace.
