You can include anything you find relevant and create an interesting profile that people will want to follow.

If members follow your profile they will receive automatic updates on the content you publish; the more people who follow you the more visibility your content will have.

  • Include a picture: uploading a picture of yourself will make it more likely for other members to interact with you and follow your profile.
  • Add your contact details: why not add links to your website and social media accounts.
  • Don’t forget to add your email address to make it easier for other members to contact you directly.

To upload a profile picture:

- select account settings, followed by Avatar
