Tips for Writing a Great Creator Profile
When a visitor stops by your creator profile, they want to learn more about you. ETChster helps you make all of your creations a part of your story as well, so be sure to write strong descriptions on your public creations.
If you are feeling stuck about what to write, try answering some of the following questions…

Where Can You & Your Work Be Found?

Besides that, where have you lived and where do you currently live? Have those locations inspired you?

Tying It All Together
Once you’ve answered some of the questions above, look over your answers and put them into a narrative.
The goal of your Creator Profile is to give your fans a way to connect with your story. When they buy your work, they’re buying a piece of that story and also getting the satisfaction of supporting you. Have you told them what story they’re buying into?
