CreativeGround community, seize the opportunity,
How does your profile score grow?
With pretty pics and recent updates,
And relationships all in a row
Each month, thousands of users are searching the over 30,000 CreativeGround profiles to find New England-based artists/creatives, creative businesses, presenters, teachers, support services and more. CreativeGround is a big place to explore, but you can help searchers looking to connect with profiles like yours by tending to your Profile Score. By accurately filling in key fields on your public profile, you will not only help your profile float to the top of search results, but will make your profile shine to audiences, collaborators, and more.
Any profile can shine - check out the yellow Grow Tips section below for a checklist of profile content must-haves.
A Profile Score is a number that is calculated for each public profile indicating how robust the profile is. Generally, the more thoroughly and thoughtfully that the fields are filled out, the higher the profile score will be. The higher the score, the more visible the profile will be in Search results, especially when a user sorts by Profile Score.
The numerical profile score is only visible to that profile’s managers, and can be found beside the profile name in the user dashboard
CreativeGround profiles cover a wide range of disciplines, business types, and activities that would be impossible to compare side by side. Rather, it’s a measure of how completely each profile has represented itself on CreativeGround, and a tool to help profile owners understand how to connect with searchers and boost their sitewide presence.
Any and every profile on CreativeGround can grow their profile score. All it takes is a little tending! Follow this checklist for a flourishing profile that shines a spotlight on all the amazing work you do:
If you have met the following external-to-CreativeGround vetting processes, consider submitting your profile to display the tags for these special designations. These fields do not affect profile score but are highly encouraged to be completed if they apply to you, as they will help your profile get discovered by the audiences you most want to connect with (such as schools, funders, local arts organizations and more) in Search results!
While you can always nurture your profile, use these ranges as a guide for what stage of growth it's in:
Of course, not every profile could or should look the same on CreativeGround -- this is a creative community, after all! To live up to our community values of transparency and equity, it is possible for any and every profile to have a high profile score. This means that the diverse and broad spectrum of creative entities in the region can update profiles with the information specific to their work; that specificity is what will make you most discoverable to potential collaborators, funders, and resources, etc., and vice versa. Whether you are an individual creative or part of an organization, professionally trained or community taught, your work matters, and CreativeGround endeavors to demonstrate just that.
Happy growing -- we can’t wait to see your profiles flourish! And perhaps even shine a light on your Full Bloom profile.
