Why do I need a professional profile picture?

We know that having a profile picture means customers, prospective customers, and recruiters are 11 times more likely to visit your social media profile or page. But it can’t just be a selfie, or the candid shot someone took of you at a party – even if you think you look great. Why?

It’s simple: a professional profile picture sends the message that you are a professional. And not only professional, but also trustworthy, capable, likeable, and all the attributes that make customers give you business, and makes an employer give you a job.

Whether you like it or not, 90% of people will form an opinion about you from a picture, and they will do it in less than half of 1/10 of a second . If that’s the case, why wouldn’t you have a professional profile picture?

You are your brand. Your picture should tell the world who you are and what you stand for. So get serious. Get seen. Get your Social Media Pix profile picture now.
