Personally, I used to offer ghostwriting services. That is, writing eBooks for my clients and they take all the rights. So I used ‘ebooksexpert‘ as my username

Updating Your Profile

Your profile is like a branding page for your profile. Choose a great tagline for your profile:

  • Excellent article writing that converts
  • You deserve the best, I deliver nothing less!… That’s actually my tagline

The simple rule towards a successful bio is simplicity, brevity, and informative nature Also update the other sections of your profile. These include education, skills, work experience and portfolio
