They say, first impression is the last impression and with the right kind of picture, you can leave an impression that might last for a long period of time. One of the first few steps of setting up your online profile, be it your personal or business account, is the profile picture.
LinkedIn and Counsell provide a professional platform so instinctively, your profile picture should exude confidence and professionalism. Avoid selfies or low-quality images. You would want to upload a full frontal, high-resolution picture. It establishes trust between you and your potential customer/employer. Since they now know what you look like, it would be easier for them to contact you or even meet you in person. Apart from that, your picture should not be in a casual pose, it should reflect your goal-oriented behavior and your efficient attitude. It will attract people to interact with you and view the rest of your profile.
To build your rest of profile, you must enter all your correct details and past experiences. You can also add a little caption about your aspirations and achievements. This will further compel the viewer to initiate a conversation with you. With the right image and a complete set of details, you are all set to venture out in the world and exercise the full potential of your professional abilities. LinkedIn and Counsell provides you a basic platform to showcase your range and how easy to reach you are. So, make the most of it. Good luck!
