What makes a great Bark profile?

A great Bark profile catches the attention of the customer whilst showcasing your business and the services you provide. 

Great Bark profiles include:

  • Up to date contact details
  • A clearly formatted and well written profile description which includes the key points customers should see without being too long
  • A completed Q&A section
  • Images such as a company logo, team photo and product photos
  • Links to your own business website and social media pages
  • Videos (if available)
  • Multiple positive reviews from happy customers


To help you get hired!

To show potential new customers why they should hire your company.

Your Bark profile is what customers see when you respond to them.

Your Bark profile should catch the attention of the customer whilst showcasing your business and the services you provide.

Your Bark profile helps you get hired.

Your Bark profile should include important information about your business to complement your pitch or proposal to customers and help distinguish you from the competition. 

It should also include your contact details so customers can reach out directly if they would like. 

Having a profile that is 80%+ completed, makes you 3 times more likely to secure new business.

Visibility is one of the most important things for any business. As an Elite Pro member, your business is highlighted to 100s of customers every month, boosting your profile and providing them access to your contact details. 

The Elite Pro fee is a small price to pay for a service that works round the clock to boost your profile and ensure you get seen by more customers than ever before. 

It just takes 1 extra customer a month to have Elite Pro pay for itself. With the service showing your profile to 100s of extra customers per month, who can opt to contact you directly or through Bark, it’s most certainly worth the money and works hard, so you don’t have to. 

  • Get regular exclusive discounts on your credit packs.
  • Your profile will be seen by x3 more customers than a standard professional.
  • You’ll be shown first in a customer’s search results.
  • We will highlight that you’re an Elite Pro, and give you a gold badge, so customer’s know that you’re gold standard.
  • We show your contact details on your public profile, so any browsing customer can reach out to you directly.

To ensure you get the full benefits from the Elite Pro service, you must have a completed Bark profile with lots of information on it. You don’t want customer’s to find your bare profile – first impressions count!

We recommend a profile completion percentage of at least 80% to ensure all the key points are included.

Certain sections may be more relevant to some businesses than others, so the profile is designed to be flexible and can be tailored to your own specific business. 

It is great to aim for a 100% completed profile, however in practice this is rare. As long as your profile includes all of the key points and you are confident it gives the best possible impression of your business, it is not necessary to reach 100% completion.

Yes! We highly recommend it.

Your profile description is a great opportunity for you to explain in your own words what you do and what sets you apart from other businesses in your industry.

A few key things you could include are:

  • A list of the different services you offer.
  • A brief company history e.g how long you’ve been in business etc.
  • What makes you different from your competitors.
  • Any current offers you may have.

Remember, you want to make a good first impression, so:

  • Format your description so it can be read clearly.
  • Space things out and avoid big blocks of text.
  • Make sure there are no spelling or grammatical errors.

You know your own business best, so we can’t fill in your profile for you from scratch. 

However, we can certainly help if you need us. Bark’s customer success team is available to help review your profile and provide tips and advice if needed. Contact Bark’s dedicated customer success team here
