I get asked all the time….”how do I know which image to choose for my social media channels’ So here are a few tips for choosing a great profile image:
📸 Use a high-quality image. Your profile image should be clear and well-lit. Avoid using blurry or pixelated images.
📸 Choose an image that is relevant to your online persona. If you’re a professional, you might want to use a headshot. If you’re creative, you might want to use a photo of yourself at work eg painting, singing, designing etc…
📸 Make sure your image is appropriate for the platform you’re using. For example, you might want to use a more formal image for LinkedIn than you would for Twitter or Instagram but ensure it is still recognisable as you.
📸 Keep your image updated. As you change and grow, your profile image should reflect those changes. Update your image regularly to keep it fresh and relevant.
📸 Ensure your image is full of warmth, show you are approachable.
A great profile image is an important part of your online presence. By following these tips, you can choose a great profile image that will help you make a good first impression, build relationships, and stand out from the crowd.
