10 Tips to Have a Professional LinkedIn Profile Picture Tip no Three

Your LinkedIn profile picture is an important  element of your LinkedIn presence. According to LinkedIn just having a picture makes your profile 14 times more likely to be viewed by others.

It’s best to have a headshot taken by a professional photographer. A photographer can ensure that the lighting is flattering and that you’re putting your best foot (or rather, face) forward.

Usually a photographer (like me) will help you with getting the right photo for your LinkedIn Profile but not always.

So here’s the third of 10 Tips to make sure you’re getting what you need to make an impact on LinkedIn.

3. Make sure your face takes up at least 60% of the frame

Using a picture of yourself standing atop a distant mountain peak works well for some social media platforms, but it’s not ideal for a business orientated platform.

Instead, aim to have your face filling about 60% of the space. Crop the picture from the top of your shoulders to just above your head so that your face fills the frame.
