Simply click on "Submit new content here" and follow the instructions.
What’s the minimum amount of information required for my profile to be listed as ‘live’?
After you register, the Step 1 tab on your 'edit profile' page is that only information that is “required” for your listing to show as “live” on the YourTango Experts site. This includes items such as basic demographics (name, address etc.) licensure, email, basic payment info, credentials, signature and more. On average, this page takes users approximately 15 minutes to complete and can be edited at any time.
How long does a complete profile take to post?
On average, it can take 45 to 90 minutes to complete their profile if they have to create everything from scratch. Many Experts already have bios and they can simply cut and paste those documents into their profile which saves significant time. Just remember, your profile can be edited as often as you like so if you need to work on it in blocks that’s perfectly OK.
