Important: Those who purchase a seat in advance may be able to pay an "early bird" or cheaper price, while those who confirm participation later or last minute, may likely have to pay a higher fee. In some training sessions a price increase based on the number of registrants may also apply, i.e. the first 15 registered pay one price, the next 10 pay a a slightly higher price etc.

Early payment is advised in order to secure participation and help reach the course minimum participation - unfortunately, courses may occasionally be cancelled or rescheduled, if the confirmed participation in advance is very low.

Summary:You will become visible and make a great first impression when submitting quotes to new jobs on ProZ.com. See your conversion rise, and the workload with income too!
Description
In one hour learn how to become visible on ProZ.com due to the brand-new "About Me" Section on your profile. Learn how this section can become a great substitution for your website (if you are not ready to invest in creating one yet). Actually, this section can be much more than a simple description of your skills and experience. You can turn it into a real magnet for your potential clients.

The first thing clients click on when opening your quote on ProZ.com is your profile. So, if your "About Me" Section is not customized and does not look attractive and professional, then you have very few chances to make the great first impression and win the project leaving behind hundreds of other applicants.

We will tackle both, marketing and technical tips to make your profile stand out from the crowd.
Good news is that you do not need to have advanced knowledge of HTML-code to make a professionally looking page. Have a look, how I created my own About Me Section - http://www.proz.com/translator/1779202 without solid background knowledge in HTML.

I will be happy to share these tips with you! You will be surprised to see how fast and easy the process can be.
