According to various sources having a head shot on LinkedIn can increase the chances of your profile being looked at in more detail by between 7 and 14 times. Like it or not others are making decisions regarding your profile photo, or lack of one.
The challenge is we may not be the best judge of choosing our own headshot.
So what are some steps that you can take to really ensure you are representing yourself in the best possible way on LinkedIn?
Resource 1 - Get feedback on your profile photo.
The first would be to see what others say about your headshot. Asking a group of friends or colleagues may work, but they may not be totally truthful for fear of hurting your feelings.
If you want to get some anonymous feedback on your headshot in three main areas, Competent, Likeable and Influential you can use - a free site that gathers insights from others using the system. You can even get votes on different photos for different uses, such as dating sites!
Resource 2 - Be sure you are following LinkedIn rules.
Some profiles try to get quite creative with editing their photo's to include logo's or other wording. But in fact LinkedIn guidelines state;
Some examples of photos that shouldn't be used are:
- Company Logos
- Landscapes
- Animals
- Words or phrases
I wonder if that includes photos of people holding their pet Chihuahua?!
Go to the Help section and make sure you check the LinkedIn Profile Photo Guidelines.
Resource 3 - Seek expert input on your profile photo.
A key step is to ensure that you have good headshots. Usually I would recommend investing a little to get professional ones taken. It is not just the quality of the actual photo but also the expertise of the photographer that might save you from making any personal branding mistakes.
To understand how working with a headshot photographer the podcast from Mark Williams has a very useful interview and resources from John Cassidy the Headshot Guy - Season 1, Episode 5: LinkedIn Profile Photo's With 'The Headshot Guy'
Remember the two key parts of your profile that are seen first and most are the profile photo and your headline. If one or both are not enticing then they may never go any further.
