Your Linkedin Background photo can offer readers clues about:
- Your skills
- Your personality
- Your passion
- Your style
Professionals on Linkedin visit your profile for many different reasons. This means you do not necessarily have to publish a “skilled” related Linkedin background photo.
A sales rep Linkedin cover photo may want to convey values such as “trust” or “support”.

Linkedin background images with your team can be a great idea, showing you lead and care for your team, only if you genuinely do so and have consent from your team.
