10 Tips to Have a Professional LinkedIn Profile Picture Tip No Eight

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 no eight of 10 Tips to make sure you’re getting what you need to make an impact on LinkedIn.

8. Wear what you’d wear to work

Every workplace has a different vibe when it comes to the dress code, and your profile picture can help people get a feel for that vibe right away. You don’t want to be over or underdressed.

If you wear Jeans and a Polo T-shirt most days, it’s okay to wear that outfit in your pic — likewise if you wear a suit.  And if you work from home most days, try wearing clothes that match the dressiness of the company as a whole.
