You're probably already on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, or some combination of all those (and more). But do your profiles send clients and prospects the right message?
Marketing pro John Jantsch says a professional's social media profiles should begin with a professional image:
Don’t settle for that phone “selfy” bounce shot off the mirror or the “look at how arty I can be” shot. (Okay, maybe those represent your brand accurately, but I’m guessing you’re a minority.)
Get a series of professional shots done. It doesn’t have to be the stiff studio shot either – add some character, get some outside shots, experiment with industrial backdrops – just make sure it’s well lit and composed.
And research confirms that LinkedIn profiles with photos get seven times more views than those without them, and a better photo leaves a better impression.
