A profile picture is your chance to put a face to your name, a chance to really show people who you are and what you represent – your brand! Don’t underestimate the power of a photo. A good LinkedIn photo conveys a sense of personal connection so even if you have never met the other party, they feel they know you. By making sure you invest in professionally taken photographs of your team to represent their personal brands and your company’s brand, they convey confidence. Research suggests that a person is 14 times more likely to click on a profile with a picture and spends just 39 seconds looking at your picture before deciding whether or not they want to do business with you. You want that time to count!
Having your employees sport professional headshots on their LinkedIn profile would give you that competitive edge. I come to you, shoot as many pictures as necessary of up to 15 of your team members and allow them to pick ones that I then professionally retouch. The final images are resized for optimal presentation on LinkedIn and in their inboxes within 3 business days of them making their selection.
