I hope you enjoy and find it useful when deciding what type of Linkedin Background Photo you end up publishing. Remember you do not have to stick to the same Linkedin Background Photo for life, not even for the whole year! You can alternatively use that top real estate visual space for a campaign or key professional event/milestone specific purposes. Read 👉 New Optimal LinkedIn profile cover photo size

BEFORE DECIDING ON YOUR NEW LINKEDIN BACKGROUND PHOTO IDEAS

Think about the professionals you really want to check out your profile. For example, if you are a job seeker, your target is recruiters.

Remember people hire for different reasons you do not necessarily have to publish a “skilled” related background photo on your Linkedin Profile.

If you, for example, are a CEO you might want to show you live and breathe the brand you work for. Background images with your team can be a great idea, showing you lead and care for your team.
