Do I need a professional business portrait?

Featured

YES.

I have a confession to make.  Every now and then I spend some time on LinkedIn making connections with local business people.  I think there’s no surprise in that I have worked with quite a few of the people I’ve received invitations from.  However, (here comes the confession) – most of the people I send invitations to are those that need some help with their profile photos.  I do try to take a closer look at these individuals and for the most part – they are totally on top of their game professionally.  Which is why it always surprises me that they would use a vacation snapshot as their professional image.

As I roamed around LinkedIn today I came across this article.  I’m sharing it with all of you because I think it contains some really important information about business and the power of the internet and using social media sites like LinkedIn.

I’m also going to include this link – just in case you want to get a little more information about how I can help you put your most professional face forward.

Don’t confuse other social media with LinkedIn by making the mistake of using a picture from your vacation, wedding or family Christmas card. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and if someone looks at your picture and the first thoughts are “What the heck were they thinking?” you have lost the battle. With today’s technology there is no reason why you can’t have a good, professional picture of yourself posted… and “selfies” don’t count as professional.
