This is a Step by Step guide to adding your profile (both the Free option and the Premium Membership profile) on the Presenter Promotions website. Some of the things I mention here will be very obvious, but I want to cover everything so we can get it right.

Depending on how much you have already prepared (or your typing speed), if you are following this section by section it could take somewhere between 10 and 30 minutes to do this. I recommend you spend a bit of time preparing the items mentioned below, although many of you will have many of these already. Remember the producers will judge you on what they see and read on your profile, so get things right now and your career has a better chance of taking off in the right direction, so here we go . . .

The Presenter Promotions website has been developed so YOU will be in control of up-dating your own profile and its content. Also if you join as a premium member to apply for the advertised jobs you will need to prepare some extras too.

Firstly Prepare the following:-

  • Upload your video showreel on youtube https://www.youtube.com or https://vimeo.com (make a note of the url in the browser bar so its ready to use).
  • Arrange your voice-overs (in wav or Mp3 Format max 20mb per file). You can have one for a free account and three in total for premium members).
  • Sort your photos (one main profile picture - a head and shoulders shot is ideal) AND sort two more (so thats three in total) if going Premium.
  • Cover Letters (Pemium accounts only) Create different styles or appealing to different marketplaces like One for Video, one for corporate, one for TV, one for voice-overs etc. You can add up to 4 cover letters, but you MUST have at least 1 or your applications will NOT be sent.
  • CV's (Pemium accounts only) These will be uploaded, so should be in .pdf or .doc or .docx fomat.
  • Premium Members also have the option to add up to six clickable buttons which we call Weblinks. (For example this could link to your own website, social media links like twitter or LinkedIn, a blog or even your own youtube channel).

NEXT: Sign-up for an account (if you haven’t already done so)

Click on Register on the top Menu and when the page opens 'Register as Talent'. This takes you to the subscribe page where you can choose your membership option, if you chose the free option you can always up-grade later:-

  • Free basic profile
  • Premium (12 months)
  • Premium (6 months)
  • Premium (3 months)

Choose how you are paying (if going Premium) PayPal is quick and easy and instant too! Premium members will be taken to Paypal for payment and will return to the website after to continue with the sign up.

The Talent Registration Page

First Name: Add your First name

Last Name: Add your Surname

Username: Ideally create a username that uses both your names if you can or is recognisable as you. NO SILLY NICKNAMES (make sure its more than 6 characters and has NO spaces)

Email: You should use an email address you want job notifications sent too and apply for jobs from.

Password: Please use at least 6 characters and try and use a mixture of letters, numbers and/or characters.

Confirm Password: Place the same password into this field. Once you have completed the above click the button ‘I accept. Create my account’ It will then start to set up an account for you and when complete takes you to the CHECKOUT page, this will display an overview of your chosen package, once you are happy click Continue.

You will then be sent a confirmation email containing an 'activation link':-

Go to your email account and click on the link within the email (this will make your account live on the website). The activation email should arrive within 3 minutes and will also contain a reminder of your username and login password. Check your Spam or Junk folder if you cannot find the activation email. Additionally its well worth adding our email address to your safe senders list at this point so you don't miss out on future mailings.

Once you log back in you see the My Profile page, if you scroll down you will notice that there are TWO Tabs that require additional information, Personal Info and Works & Credits. Please take some time to fully complete all sections, as this is the producers first window of YOU they will see.

First lets start with Personal Info, and if you scroll down you will notice your User Information has already been completed and the first section to start completing is:-

CONTACT DETAILS:-

Contact No: Add your telephone number, a mobile is best (for admin purposes only and is not displayed on site)

Address: Add the first line of your address (for admin purposes only and is not displayed on site)

Address (line 2): Add the second line of your address, if you have one (for admin purposes only and is not displayed on site)

Country: Select the country from the drop down menu

Region: Select your REGION from the drop down menu

City: Select your Town or City (for admin purposes only and is not displayed on site)

Zip/Postcode: Add your Postcode (for admin purposes only and is not displayed on site)

PERSONAL DETAILS:-

Gender: Use the radio buttons to select your gender (not displayed on site)

Age: Add your age. This is important as its used by producers a lot for searches (not displayed on site)

Status: Select your Status from the drop down menu (not displayed on site)

Nationality: Select your Nationality from the drop down menu (not displayed on site)

PHOTO: The first photo is used as the Main Profile Photograph. Click the 'Upload New' button and browse your device for the selected photo (This one should be a Head and Shoulders pic). Use the slider tool below the photo frame to adjust the size and framing of the image to make the photo stand out, keeping your head close to the top of the frame. If you select the wrong image click the 'Remove Picture' button and it will be removed so you can then add a replacement. PREMIUM MEMBERS will get two extra photos to follow, so use the same method to upload the extra photos.

Location and MY Talent:-

My Location: Select the area that you are based - from the drop down menu. Remember producers searching for you will only find you in the area you place here, so if you want work in the South East or London choose the correct option. The location is also seen on your profile as a visual indication of where you are and where you work the most.

My Talent: Select your preferred talent title - from the drop down menu. Your selected option is also seen on your profile as a visual indication of your main working title. 

Showreels and Audio Demos:- 

Add Your Showreel: Please take some time to get this right, otherwise your video will not play on your profile. DO NOT add links to youtube channels, as they do not operate or use links to those videos added as private videos or requiring a password to view them. Paste the url link to your YOUTUBE or VIMEO hosted showreel. It will look something like this: https://www.youtube.com/embed/fN0TwH6Ea9I or https://vimeo.com/135201600 If you need more help with finding the correct link, check out this visual help guide.

Audio Samples/Mp3 voice Demos: Simply click the UPLOAD button and select the .wav or .mp3 clip from your device, wait for each upload to complete before moving on. There is a maximum 20MB limit per demo uploaded, so check size and file format before uploading or use a free file and size convertor like online-audio-converter (if you have a premium account it will display two further upload butons so you can have 3 audio demos in total.

A Short description of your talent and ability:-

Create a short description of your talent and your personality. Keep it simple about three lines (like an overview of yourself, your personality and work). Remember producers need to know all about you and what you have to offer. You can place more comprehensive information in the Detailed Breakdown section, which will get to in a moment.

Skills:-

Skills Summary: Competing this section will help you appear in producer searches, so is well worth doing. Add a few of your major skills, abilities or special attributes (e.g.) Live Presenting, Autocue, interviews, voice-over, Narration, etc. (When a producer SEARCHES this websites talent database, one of the fields they complete enables them to ask for particular skills and abilities, choose some from this list or add your own:-

Live Presenting, Multi-camera Studio, Autocue, Talk-Back, Interviews, Narration, Public Speaking, Research, Journalistic, Improvisation, Ad-Lib. (Remember to add a comma and a space after each ability).

Credits, Training & Achievements: Add a much more in-depth profile here, including any credits, training and achievements you have:-

Detailed Breakdown You should add as much info you can and include credits, etc. Remember producers respond better to profiles that contain more information and much prefer profiles where effort has been put into creating a well written profile. Ideally create an online CV that sells your abilities, the work you have done and what training you have. It's very important to keep this section as up to date as you can, adding new credits, skills or training as you achieve them.

Main Skill

Select one skill from the drop down menu (the one you think you are best at, or most known for). This is mainly used for producer quick searches.

Premium Members: You have a Weblinks option (Add up to 6 clickable buttons, for example this could be your own website, social media links like twitter or LinkedIn, a blog or even your own youtube channel).

Premium Weblinks (Extra clickable buttons)

These are very simple to add, start by deciding what links you want to include. You can have up to six links and there are plenty of options, a few examples I can think of are:- My Website, Twitter, LinkedIn, My Blog, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Vimeo, Spotlight, etc. Theres no rules about the links you can add here, but make them relevant to the industry and your career.

All links are completed in the same way, but as an example I will explain how to complete Weblink 1: In the first box place the URL (the site address) starting http://www. and in the box below it add the title of the button (what a producer will see before they click on it) so for example: My Twitter. The following 5 Weblinks should be completed in the same way. If you don’t have enough links to complete all 6 then leave the remaining ones blank and they won’t show up on your page.

Once you have done this click the 'Save Profile' Button.

This will lead to the Job Alerts Page . . .

Select the type of jobs you want to hear about that are posted on the website and you can get up to the minute alerts sent to your email address. Here's a link to a full instructions on adding job alerts that will help make using the site easy: HOW TO SET UP JOB ALERTS

Once you have saved your job alerts page, you will automatically return to the TALENT DASHBOARD, please then select Profile then View Profile to see if what you have created represents you in the way you want to sell yourself. If you need to change anything, select Edit Profile in the same menu and select save profile at the base of the page again one completed.
