How To Get Your Author Profile to 100%
There is a fun and helpful “percent complete” area on every author’s profile, but it’s not clear what actually contributes to filling this bar. This post will go through all the steps to get your Textbroker author profile 100 percent complete. You can also watch a video to see each step.
We’ve been getting a lot of emails about this particular topic, and we see that the question has been asked many times on the forum. There is a fun and helpful “percent complete” area on every author’s profile, but it’s not clear what actually contributes to filling this bar. This post will go through all the steps to get your Textbroker author profile 100 percent complete. You can also watch a video to see each step here.
General Info Tab
You can make your resume as short or as detailed as you like, but please do not include your contact information. Since you are not applying for full-time employment, you do not need to include references or the contact information for previous employers. You certainly can and should list any educational background you have.
You can use your mouse or the arrow keys to set your capacity. Your capacity is not a requirement but merely an estimate of how much you can do. This helps clients plan out large projects.
When you upload a picture, it will automatically re-size for the space available. You do not have to use a picture of yourself, but please keep images appropriate and respectful of copyright.
Please choose your highest level of education. Only one choice is possible.
You can choose up to five industries. Choosing at least one industry will max out how complete this section of the profile can be, so for full profile completion purposes, it makes no difference whether you choose one industry or five. Of course, for maximum earning potential, we suggest providing clients who are shopping for Team members or for authors to whom they can send a Direct Order with as much information as possible.
Type of Writing
You can choose up to five types of writing. Choosing at least one industry will max out how complete this section of the profile can be.
Please choose items that have not been accepted by Textbroker clients as samples. Let’s say, for example, that you have posted three writing samples in your author profile. You will notice at the top of this tab, in the right corner, it says “Available Writing Samples: 0.” This means that you have provided all three writing samples, and this section is full. It does not mean that there are no writing samples available for clients to see, which we know has been a source of confusion for some authors.
Entering your native language will add to your profile percentage complete total. You are welcome to add additional languages as this shows clients that you are capable of filling orders in languages other than English, but a second language will not increase your percentage of profile completion.
Adding two interests will add to your level of profile completion. Adding a third interest, while great for getting found, will not complete your profile percentage futher. We suggest that you be as detailed as you can be here. If you are interested in sports, mention favorite teams. If you have unusual interests or hobbies, include them as well. You could be interested in sports generally, but if you have watched every Olympics since you were 10 years old, that might be a good thing to put down.
Adding 10 places will add to your level of profile completion. You can add the following types of places:
- National parks
- Universities and colleges
With all of these options, everyone should be able to find 10 locations that they have lived in or visited. When you have all of this information entered, your profile will be 100% complete!
As always, please feel free to email us at [email protected] if you have any questions at all. We sincerely appreciate all that you do. Have an outstanding weekend, and thank you for sharing your talents at Textbroker!

AHHH! I have just located the Expert Center after contacting TB about not being able to access the blog to study. I happened upon this late Friday addition which is what I have been praying for. Thanks so much TB!

Thank you so much.
You answered all the questions I had about the above topics.

Do you know what is meant by "adding HTML" ? I am lost a bit but I know how to structure and do the presentational features they require for a sample.
I’m waiting for your reply

Thanks for clearing up your stance on certain commas. I often stumble over parentheticals and conjective adverbs.

An interesting piece on how the outlook was in 2012.
The funny thing is, I feel like TB hasn't changed since I joined in 7 years ago. The rate of pay is the same, the same instructions from clients, for the most part. On occassion I get to write part of a book, but mostly it's bloggers who don't know how to run websites.
I've changed – I went from having an HS diploma to having to graduate degrees, and also from a 4-star to a 3-star writer. I can write a piece with no errors, filled with 10 hours of research and a personal interview with an expert, rated EXCELLENT by the client, and it's 3 stars.

The profile section is proving to be a mystery to me. I haven’t been able to make it work, no matter how much I tried to conform to it’s stipulations.

I have submitted the required documents to [email protected] for verification but haven’t yet received an auto email which is considered as acknowledgement receipt. It feels like I sent it to no one so any assistance please?
corteznapue 30. July 2019 - 19:20
So sorry about that! Please contact [email protected] for more assistance. Thank you!

I followed this and filled in everything, but it still says my profile is at 88%! There is nothing left blank and I’ve filled the areas (like travel and interests) to more than required. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.
