If you’re using social accounts for a business purpose it is VITAL that the person behind the business looks like they’re IN business. People select the businesses they work with generally based on the people they meet or are referred to. How professional is your social profile?
I recently updated my profile picture across all my social accounts and websites (thanks must go to the talented Zahrina Photography). Given my line of work this was no quick job… and there probably is one or two I missed somewhere! Of cause changing your profile then gets a lot of compliments & attention – it’s why we do it right? Because it looks better than the last.
But what message does your image deliver to those you are wanting to build a professional network with? We have all heard the saying a picture tells a thousand words – so what does your social profiles say about you and what you would be like to do business with?
Here’s a comical view of what some of those images out there may say about you.
If you are not using social sites for business then you have nothing to worry about. But if you are attempting to use Social Media as a marketing tool for your business – don’t be fooled that it doesn’t matter what your profile picture is because it’s what helps people trust your business. These are online business networks and work not all that different from offline. You join groups, introduce yourself and share with people what you do…
So… your social profile… how professional is yours? If you need help in creating a few different sizes for various sites send me an email and we’ll get you sorted. Given the amount of work I now have had come in this week – I’m sure some of it is because my new image got some new attention!!! =)
