Okay, after some technical “issues,” we’re finally ready for you to edit your profile (if you’d like).
If you have a simple, quick change, you may find it easier to just send me an email — like, “Please paste this new bio” or “Please use this new photo.”
If you’re more of the hands-on type, though….
Watch this 15-minute video for a full tour of the editing area AND some tips about how to create a more effective profile (and some of the thinking/strategy behind our profile design).
IMPORTANT: If you don’t have 15 minutes to watch this video right now, please do not proceed to log in to edit your profile. It’s that important, and it will serve you for as long as you’re a member of The Speakers Group.
Review your current published profile (click your name from this list) so you know what (if any) content on your page needs to be edited.
Go to thespeakersgroup.com/wp-login.php and login with your username and password from when you initially joined The Speakers Group. (If you don’t remember your password, just click the “Lost your password?” link on this page. And if you don’t remember your username, just email me.)
Click on the “Speakers” menu option in the left menu area after you’re logged in:
You will see your profile in the “Mine” listing:
Move the mouse cursor over your name and you’ll see an “Edit” link appear.
Click “Edit” and you’ll be in the “admin” (editing) area for your profile.
From here, follow the instructions that were given in the video in Step One. (You watched the video, right?) The content you enter here will populate your profile page and place you into the appropriate categories so our website visitors can find you when they search for speakers.
For your video: If you need to change or add videos, please either (a) email me (email@example.com) a link to your video, or (b) send the actual video file via YouSendIt.com.
For your photo/images: If you want to change or add photos, please either (a) email me your photo(s) or (b) send me a link to the specific photo you would like to add.
For your “More” tab: If you would like to revise the content under your “More” tab, please email me — with “More tab” in the subject line — with the specific content (or links) that you would like to insert under the More tab and we’ll make those changes for you.
IMPORTANT: The content on your “More” tab will disappear after you save any changes to your profile. It’s a known issue as a result of a third party service that we’ll address soon, but there’s an easy solution: Please email me (shawn@thespeakersgroup) after you save changes to your profile and we’ll re-insert the More content. We’ll be correcting this soon.
If you have any specific questions right now, just send me an email!
