4 Reasons To Use A Professional Headshot On Your LinkedIn Profile
LinkedIn is an amazing tool that has revolutionized networking for modern professionals. You can make an impression on thousands of connections just by posting your profile on the site, and choosing a great photo of yourself is the first and biggest step in making sure that it's a good impression.
Here are 4 reasons you should choose a professional photo for your LinkedIn profile:
Your personality shines through
The old saying 'a picture is worth a thousand words' is especially true for profile photos. A good photographer will be able to capture some of your personality in your face and posture.
It's shows that you're serious about your career
The fact that you spent the effort, time, and money to arrange, pay, and sit for a professional photo says a lot in itself. It shows your connections that you take your professional life seriously.
You'll get more engagement
Good photos drive people to engage with your profile. The information listed on your page might be outstanding, but a clear, bright, and inviting profile picture will grab their interest and draw people in so they will actually read it.
You'll build a reputation
If you are active on LinkedIn, people will become familiar with your face and the kinds of things you like and post about even if they have never met you in person. You want to make sure they have a great photo to associate you with.
Taking the time to get some professional and dynamic headshots is a great way to invest in yourself and your career.
