Catch Them at the First Glance!
You will find 3 different things which
sort of look alike to fill in
when creating your Page on HELLO STAGE -
and you will wonder why I am going on about it,
as it seems to be really obvious….
All three serve very different purposes and
are for you to be found more easily and to attract attention!
The one you probably already have
filled in, in the best possible way, is your Biography
simply copy and paste from the one you already have at hand!
You might have to shorten it a bit as the number
of characters is
Almost every artist biography I ever came across in
my life is too long!!
Keep it short, that will
save the person who is copying it for a programme book
a lot of time doing that work,
and you can ensure that they are
not taking out the parts that are important for you!
The Short Profile
some facts and I strongly recommend filling it in,
although it is optional.
You decide what you want to share and what not.
This allows you to control
what a visitor to your HELLO STAGE Page sees.
Providing this information will increase
the possibility to be contacted by other members.
is probably the most important one you
have on your profile -
the first thing a visitor looks at and
this is where you can catch them at the first glance.
Or in fact lose them, if it is empty or simply only gives the
URL to your website. You got
them to your Page on HELLO STAGE and
rather than giving them a short intro,
you are sending them elsewhere as if you would
not care enough to introduce yourself at the first encounter
(sorry to be so brutally open...).
I agree it is not easy to come up with 3 to
5 snappy catching sentences to describe yourself
- your whole biography will be too long and it has its
own section anyway…
I picked a few examples of what members chose to do.
Options range from a very personal statement like
a short version of your biography
like Mariko & Daniel opted for
or a wonderful quote someone else has written
about you like in
Olga’s case www.hellostage.com/olga-scheps
I hope these examples will inspire you to fill in
it gives you a huge advantage over the ones who did not!
