Does Your LinkedIn Photo Tell Your Story?
What does your LinkedIn profile photo say about you?
Your profile picture can be one of the most important elements of your LinkedIn presence. And studies have shown that it only takes one-tenth of a second for someone to draw conclusions about you based on your photo. It has also been noted that having a good profile photo on LinkedIn makes your profile 14 times more likely to be viewed by others.
So the question is how do you win someone over in less than a second?
Your profile photo should establish credibility and give people a reason to trust you. This may seem like a tall order to ask of a simple photo, but if shot professionally, it can be done.
Marjorie Kase, a solutions consultant at Adobe Social, recommends incorporating imagery that reflects the field you work in. This is where we can help. Here at Damian Sandone Photography, we understand just how important it is to brand yourself whether you are an artist trying to entice people to check out your work, or someone who is looking for employment, wishing to capture the attention of their future employer.
No matter who you are, or what you do, having an impressive LinkedIn profile photo can make a huge difference in how people perceive you. Typically, it is recommended to have a professional photographer take your headshot. We can make sure the lighting is flattering and that you are putting your best foot (or rather face) forward.
To increase your response, experts all agree to invest in your profile picture. It’s your first chance to communicate that you are friendly, likable, and trustworthy. These attributes are crucial to getting prospects to engage with you. Think of it as your first step to building your personal brand on LinkedIn and making yourself stand out from the crowd!
