Here are some top tips for a perfect online profile photograph
Your profile photograph is a very important part of your online presence. Your picture makes you appear more approachable. Using a high-quality professional profile picture creates the right impression and increases the number of people who will view your profile.
It’s easiest to use a professional photographer who can light you perfectly and bring out a natural smile. A friendly smile will make you look accessible, and encourage others to engage with you.
We often call profile pictures “head shots” because that is really what they are, just your head and shoulders, profile photos are often only small thumbnails so your photo should be just of your head and a bit of your shoulders and be really clear.
Dress professionally, particularly for LinkedIn which is a business site. This will usually mean a dress, shirt or blouse, a shirt and tie, or even a suit. Select solid dark colours like blue or black stay away from white or light colours which can make you look washed out. Ladies should avoid bare shoulders and any distracting hairstyles or jewellery.
Keep it Simple, a white or light background is best. You should always use a recent picture, remember you are creating your personal professional online brand, consistency is also important so it is a good idea to use your best picture for all your professional and social networking profiles.
The saying goes “A picture is worth a thousand words” . So what will your picture be saying about you? Research with PC screen eye-tracking has found that recruiters spend as much as 19% of their time on your profile looking at your picture and that less time is spent on your skills or past work experience so your picture plays an important part. You need to look confident, credible and professional like a person that someone would want to have in their office.
Expression is important a pleasant facial expression is vital. It’s a matter of looking like someone others will want to work with, A pleasant, confident not too serious look is best. People also prefer looking at colour rather than black and white shots. By having a professional profile photograph you will be perfectly lit, nothing screams amateur more loudly than a poor quality profile picture.
So remember be smart, be natural, be yourself, and give us a smile. It is good eye contact that creates the best connection.
