Most Event companies do not think about creating a company profile until a prospective clients asks for it. Could you be one of those people who have just received a request from a client and do not know where to start or what to add on your company profile?
First things first, A company profile is a marketing tool that is written to introduce a company and tells the reader about the company activities, mission, goals and strengths, experiences products and services.
A company profile goes on to highlight your brand’s unique qualities. With a company profile be assured that you will give a lasting impression to your prospects and this can turn to be the key to your company’s success.
Thinking about this, then it is important for you to draft a good and comprehensive profile because the way you present your profile will affect your customer’s perception and finally the decision to engage or not to.
Never be intimidated by other company’s profiles. Remember that there is no specific length of profiles. If you are a startup or a medium sized company it is okay to have a short profile that has 1 to 3 pages. On the other hand large company profiles depend on a number of factors like the audience, the experiences, the team members and other factors that are considered by the company’s age and its size.
The more complete your profile, the better the odds that prospective client will find you and choose you over other incomplete profiles. So don’t get lazy – fill out every single section of the profile builder.

Be Warm and Welcoming
On this introduction section, you have an opportunity to be a bit detailed to showcase a good picture of your company to a prospective client. It should be warm, welcoming and straight to the point. A maximum of 500 words is good for a compelling company introduction. Don’t forget to touch on what the company stands for i.e. Mission statement/vision, Established dates, descriptions of products and services, Brief overview of history, growth and development. Your welcoming words should be clear, interesting and straight to the point.
Contact information is the key
Company name, website, location address, telephone numbers, social media handles, Email address etc. are essential details to add on your online profile. The profile being on an online platform will help clients to take action on your killer profile, and most importantly it will contribute to your visibility on your local SEO.
How about your Mission statement
A mission statement is a short summary of your company’s purpose. Period! Make it short and to the point
Remember this -The three components of a mission statement include the purpose, values, and goals of the company.
Example: See sample Profile
If you’re looking to prove your worth, this is where you flap your feathers. Share anything that is worthwhile that your company has accomplished or received in its operations.
- Awards and honors
- Media/news recognition
Describe products and services
At this point you list and if need be describe your products and services. Remember to list the specific services you can offer your clients. This area is very important for those clients who don’t like going though the profile but just want to know if you offer the specific services or products. list your services in bullet form.

What about your business highlights
In Brief, in bullet list with a lot of focus the highlight section of your profile should be the summary of your projects you are proud of. Notable achievements or projects those are relevant to your business. As an event planner you can take advantage of this section to catch the attention of your prospects.
