These bios are not doing a good job of attracting high-paying clients for you. A killer professional bio is the greatest consultant marketing strategy in the world. Your bio can do a lot of the hard work of attracting high-paying clients. I don’t know any other way to tell you, but your bio is lazy. It’s time to whip that lazy bio into shape. To get advice, I went to two of my former public relations graduate students who have gone on to launch successful public relations firms. “Your professional bio is often the first thing a potential client or employee will see when they find you online,” says public
