You may be required to produce your company profile in different ways depending on circumstances and needs. Some of the different cases could be presenting your profile to a prospective partner, acquiring financing, sending a press release, proposing collaborative events and so on. Some information in a company profile A may not be needed in a company profile B, while in some cases; some aspect of lengthy explanation in one profile may not be as long in another. Pinpoint exactly what your company profile is being used for, and produce one that fulfills this particular need.
3. Offer the benefits
Offer the benefits the users, the customers and partners get when they use your products or services, or when they engage in a collaborative work with you. Also, tell your prospects what they can expect from you which they won’t get it from other competitors. Showcase your company and personnel background, qualification and experience and announce to the world that your expertise is what the clients have been looking for. Explain how using your environmental friendly products would help to create a greener world and slow down the climate change effects. Elaborate about your 60-day guarantee period to convince the customers they do not have anything to lose when dealing with your company.
4. Throw some achievements
Achievements act like your ‘business card’ except it carries a much bigger impact. Additionally, achievements defy the thinking that you have just arrived from Mars and you do not know anything about your products and services. If you have been working with successful people and celebrities in the past like Anthony Robbins, Donald Trump, Bon Jovi, Richard Branson (does not matter if they are local or foreign people) and so on, make sure to stamp these achievements onto your company profile. Showcase your past events that generated media attention and participated by lawmakers and influential people in the relevant fields.
5. Include testimonials
Testimonials are a powerful way to convey the message that you’re no newcomer and that you’re not just there to make up the numbers. Testimonials give your company profile more punches and creates more impression through its self explanatory nature. It is a testament that you actually have a real presence, attained real achievements and worked with real clients who are more than willing to spell out their admiration towards your work. So, every time you write your company profile, never forget to include some testimonials of your past work.
