Give the right information and be honest. It is of no use, if your profile only contains false information. They could make the profile and hence the family more attractive, but in the end it will lead to a disappointing and unsuccessful Au Pair stay so don't forget to explain what the role of your Au Pair will be like.
Be flexible with your searching criteria. You shouldn´t restrict the length of the stay, countries and others too much, since this way not only your choice of recommended Au Pairs will be limited, but also you will be contacted by less people.
