A one-stop hub for your audience to find your content and products
That’s what the Creator Profile is. It features a bio of who you are, plus a collection of your posts, products, and links on one neat page.

We’ll auto-save your changes as you go along, but you can also hit the Save button at the top right of the Creator Profile builder to save your work whenever you like.
Customizing the introduction card
The main introduction card of the Creator Profile contains your creator business name, bio, and profile photo. There is also an optional field for you to fill out your name (if it differs from that of your creator business) or byline.
Click any of these to change them.
For example, to customize your bio, click the bio and type away. Click anywhere outside the bio to save your changes.
The main introduction card also contains an email form for people to subscribe to your email list. Click the form's sign-up button to customize its button text.
Customizing the Creator Profile menu
Immediately below the introduction card, you’ll see the Creator Profile menu card, which contains tabs for your Posts, Recommendations, Products, and Links cards.
Click and drag these tabs to rearrange their order in the menu.
Under the General styles tab in the right sidebar, you can also toggle the Enable Posts, Enable Recommendations, Enable Products, and Enable Links settings in the right sidebar to show/hide your Posts, Recommendations, Products, and Links cards on your Creator Profile respectively.
Customizing the Posts card
The Posts card displays your public Broadcasts. To customize it, click Posts in the Creator Profile menu.
You’ll need to add your Broadcasts to your public feed for them to appear on the Posts card.
Setting up your featured post
You can set up your Posts card's featured post in the right sidebar. There are two options:
Newest post: This will default the featured post on your Creator Profile to your latest public Broadcast.
Selected post: You can customize which public Broadcast will be the featured post on your Creator Profile. Click Select featured post to choose which public Broadcast to feature. Please note you’ll see only the selection of Broadcasts you’ve already made public.
Displaying your paid posts
Paid posts will also appear in the Posts card, but with a padlock icon to indicate that only paid subscribers can read them.
Customizing the Recommendations card
If you have joined the Creator Network, the creators you've recommended to your subscribers will appear on the Recommendations card.
Customizing the Products card
The Products card displays your ConvertKit Commerce products. Click Products in the Creator Profile menu to customize it.
Use the right sidebar settings to select the products you want to display on your Creator Profile. You can learn how to create a ConvertKit Commerce product here if you haven't created any yet!
Customizing the Links card
The Links card is where you can add links to different platforms, such as your blog or social media accounts. Customize it by clicking the Links tab in the Creator Profile menu.
Click the Add link button to add a new link.
To customize your link, click it once and you’ll have options for customizing its text color, font size, icon color style, and more in the right sidebar.
Click the link a second time to customize your link text, icon, and URL. You can also remove the link from your Creator Profile by clicking Remove link.
If you added multiple links, click the hamburger icon next to them in the right sidebar to rearrange their order.
Styling your Creator Profile
Click the General styles tab in the right sidebar to style your Creator Profile.
Apart from the options to show/hide your Posts, Recommendations, Products, and Links cards on your Creator Profile (as mentioned above), you can also customize your:
