A business profile is like a rsum for your company. It lists basic company details and gives you a chance to highlight your strengths. Just like a rsum, you should write each business profile with a purpose in mind. Use it as an opportunity to briefly state why potential clients should work with you, but give thorough and precise details.

Readers need to know who theyre looking at before you get into the specifics. It will also demonstrate how organized and efficient you are. Make sure to give the company name, the year established, what your company does, who the principle is, all your contact info, and your website. If there are additional basic details relevant to your business, give them here.

Marketing Consultants Est. 1975 in Las Vegas, NV

55 Corporation Drive, Las Vegas NV 56556 ph. (555)555-5555, fax: (555)555-5556

If you have a mission statement, put it here. Otherwise, write out your company vision, guiding ethos, and a little about your history. Telling who you are and what drives you gives your company a human element. It also gives you a chance to do some subtle advertising early on.

This is a place you can afford to be a little vague. Mission statements are legally necessary for some businesses, and may need to be specific. For everyone else, try to state what you do without limiting yourself. You dont want to scare away potential business that thinks you wouldnt consider expanding into adjacent industries. But it is easy to overdo vague language.

A bad example: XYZ Semantics is a company driven by the pursuit of its dreams. We want to bring you with us on this journey. Our dedication to solutions and innovation make us the leading marketing consultants west of the Mississippi.

A good example: XYZ Semantics is seasoned and talented team of marketing consultants. Since 1975 we have helped our clients grow their business and profits. Though our methods are complex, our goal is simple: we want to help you sell your product to more customers.

Check with your secretarial or human resource staff to find out up-to-date details in several areas. You may not need to use all these, but having them on hand will make it easier when you sit down to craft the profile. Set up a way to streamline this process in the future, as you will want to update this information in your profile regularly.

Turnover. Low turnover can indicate stability, but either way its a good statistic to have on-hand.

List of all business activities. What are all the areas you work in?

Unique equipment or specialties. If you are the only company that produces, say, a rare machine part, you need to mention that.

Your methodology and/or what software you use.

Volume of output you can handle. Prospective clients need to know if you are prepared to meet their needs.

Delivery stats. How many units do you ship in a given period?

Major accounts or clients. This is a way to show prospective clients whether or not you are used to doing business with companies like theirs. Its also another chance for subtle advertising.

Since you want to keep the profile short, you cant include every possible detail. Also, not all of them might be strengths. Pick out what might be relevant to include in your profile in various contexts. Keep the other information on hand for future reference, but put the important stuff in one place for easy access.

Look first at competitors and other companies in the same type of business. Note the style and tone of the ones that stand out. If you have a business you really look up to, such as a leading national corporation, look at their profile. What do they do that stands out to you? Incorporate this style into your own.

Before you sit down to write the profile, make sure you have the most recent numbers you can find. Prospective clients arent interested in your performance from five years ago. They want to know how you will deliver now. Get your staff to update you on these details regularly so you have to do less leg work when it comes time to write a new profile.

Most times, you want people to read your profile as potential customers. Make sure they read all the way through by keeping it short and engaging. Show you respect their time and you dont want to waste it. Short business profiles also indicate that you dont need a lot of flowery language and decorations to show you are the best. Let the numbers speak for themselves.

For example, dont list every client youve had in the last 15 years. Keep the list short by including only the top 10 or so with high profiles. But make sure the language indicates they are not your only accounts!

Avoid overly specific jargon as well as general statements.

You will inevitably use terms that people in your industry understand, but a fourth grader might not. However, dont let the profile become an advertisement for your vocabulary. At the same time, avoid meaningless, vague statements. Experts in your industry will know fluff when they see it.

Simulated annealing and RPCs have the necessary infrastructure to interface with our overseas servers.

Our company optimizes synergy, productivity, and innovation while diminishing losses.

Here is an example of a targeted statement:

We store data safely in our servers at home and in our international offices.

Some companies and individuals let their creativity get away from them by going for excessively showy visual appeal. This doesnt change the information presented, though. Pick a format that has lines and standard fonts to visually organize your profile. This is another way to ensure that the profile is easy to read.

This is a kind of advertisement for your business, so dont be afraid to talk about your strengths. Although, they should never worry about the accuracy of your business profile. Mention specific numbers or awards to quantify your performance.

Make it creative but dont exaggerate. Find a nice middle ground between good writing that makes you stand out and showy prose. Write something that sounds nice in two paragraphs, and then edit it down to one.

For example, dont write: We are marketing consultants based in Las Vegas, NV. We help businesses in the region sell their products and services. If you sign with us, we will be contractually obligated to advise you ways to increase your business.

But also dont write: Semantics, LLC started in 1975, became the uncontested leader in marketing consultation in the United States by 1980. Our unrelenting and fervent attention to detail makes us the only good option for businesses hoping to increase sales. If you work with us, your profits will increase threefold in the first year.

Opt instead for: XYZ Semantics was named in Style & Marketing Magazines Top 5 Marketing Consultants of the Southwest list every year since 2005. Our team was selected from a variety of backgrounds to promote a creative environment. Choosing our services will not be the last good decision you make.

How do I come up with a draft for a company profile?

Entrepreneur & Retired Financial Advisor

Michael R. Lewis is a retired corporate executive, entrepreneur, and investment advisor in Texas. He has over 40 years of experience in business and finance.

A good way to develop a business profile is to see what your competitors are doing. Visit their web and social media sites and review their content. Do you like the description of the business? How is your business different than the description of their business? What key information seems to be missing? The bottom line, an effective profile highlights the reason(s) that your business outshines the competition along with basic data about how to contact you physically, telephonically, and online.

How should a business profile be written?

Entrepreneur & Retired Financial Advisor

Michael R. Lewis is a retired corporate executive, entrepreneur, and investment advisor in Texas. He has over 40 years of experience in business and finance.

The purpose of a profile is to let your potential customers know your location, the ways they can interact with you, the products or services you offer, and the key reason(s) they will want to do business with you (rather than your competitors). Put yourself in the mind of a potential customer and ask yourself, What would I want to know about XYZ before doing business with them?

How do I write a business profile for a new business?

The same as any other business profile, but shorter, and focus on your unique qualities instead of your experience (as you might not have much). Keep the focus on what makes you different from your competitors, i.e. handmade products, superior service, etc. Optionally, include an introduction to your core team, perhaps short bios and a photo of each person. If you have someone on your team that has extraordinary achievement(s), you can also mention those.

How can I draft a business profile for a vegetable market?

Write about your plans for financing the market, your goals and how you will overcome any potential challenges.

Do you have any suggestions on a business profile for a company that supplies computers and accessories?

You could try something like, unlike EA we also care about MAC users. That only works if you actually have accessories for MAC.

Do I need to include a twelve month cash flow?

It is not needed. It could expose the financial position to the public which might attract a lot of competitors with higher financial strength.

Media Or Tech Company? Facebooks Profile Is Blurry

Regulators, and sometimes the public, still have a tough time getting a handle on just what Facebook is. And that makes it difficult to determine just which laws should govern it.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before Congress on Tuesday in Washington, D.C.Zach Gibson/Getty Imageshide caption

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before Congress on Tuesday in Washington, D.C.

Among the many questions Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrestled with as he testified before Congress Tuesday and Wednesday was one of a more existential nature: What, exactly, is Facebook?

Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) asked Zuckerberg whether the social networking website was a tech company or a publisher.

Zuckerberg replied, When people ask us if were a media company or a publisher my understanding of what the heart of what theyre really getting at is, Do we feel responsibility for the content on our platform? The answer to that, I think, is clearly yes.

His answer matters because what Facebook is determines how lawmakers regulate it. Issie Lapowsky, senior writer forWired Magazine, says Facebook is a lot of things and they still dont necessarily understand it.

Obviously these hearings were just a matter of Washington getting a firm grasp on how Facebook works in order to figure out how to address it, Lapowsky says. Because … they havent seen anything like Facebook before.

On whether Facebook is a media or tech company

I think Facebook is a lot of things. Mark Zuckerberg would like to tell you Facebook is a tech company. But as he noted today, Facebook does a lot of things, including building drones that can beam the Internet to parts of the developing world. They build tools that allow you to send money to friends. So are they a financial institution? Are they an aerospace company?

I think its pretty clear that Facebook has completely changed the way the media industry works. And thats why regulators, and sometimes the public, have such a tough time really defining whether Facebook is a news entity, because we havent had a platform like this that is both so dominant in news but that also is not committing journalism itself. Its really just pulling in all this news from the rest of the Web some of that legitimate news, some of it not.

The laws that allowed the Internet to really become what the Internet has become give platforms wide latitude in terms of what responsibility they have for what people publish on their platforms. So thats why Mark Zuckerberg and certainly the heads of other social networks like this have really maintained that We are the platform not the publisher. Because they want to be a neutral platform, which means that they are not subject to any laws requiring that they monitor illegal activity and things like that.

On Facebook taking responsibility for its content

That is an absolute departure [from the past]. So many of these tech CEOs have started repeating this clich: We dont want to be the arbiters of truth. And I think that Mark Zuckerberg is seeing that that is not playing so well in the public. And time and again, theyve seen how these problems really escalate, and the more extreme examples that we see of ways that it could go wrong, I think the more Mark Zuckerberg has had to come around to the idea that yes, they are responsible for this content.
